No Fons, I just help to keep winemakers employed ;)  :)  This vine is one of the few that remain in our garden.

I was reminded of the classic 'Sheep in Scotland' story and made the following hip shot en route to my museum task ...  (to get the original, substitute 'black sheep'  and 'Scotland for 'red-haired female' and 'Norway', respectively).

A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer are riding a train through Norway

The engineer looks out the window, sees a red-haired female, and exclaims, "Hey! They've got red-haired females in Norway!"

The physicist looks out the window and corrects the engineer, "Strictly speaking, all we know is that there's at least one red-haired female in Norway."

The mathematician looks out the window and corrects the physicist, " Strictly speaking, all we know is that at least one side of one female is red-haired in Norway."


Very dry humour which suits my current work situation :)

Strictly speaking, all we know is that at least one side of one female and all sides of another female are red-haired in Norway.  ;D

Seriously speaking, I love Birna's hipshot; perfect timing, geometry and color composition!

Spring has sprung here. I  saw a few solitary/native bees visiting the plants in the garden today including this leaf cutter bee.

Today´s picture was also taken at the end of august. I´m in the process of moving to my new place, not far from where I did last year but even closer to the beach.

  This image is the end of the visit to a museum dedicated to Ortega Bru, a well known artist from the city of San Roque. The little one in the picture, was very interested in the process of image making and really enjoyed doing a few himself. "Have you taken a picture of picture of that?" Was his cue to actually ask "I´ll love to get the camera again and take a picture of that"  ;D
