A white world for one night. After a while I'm used to the cold weather and my umbrella and rain poncho keep me fairly dry. With the Christmas lights in the city I feel like I am in a fairy tale.

Groningen, last Monday.

Last Friday. The first snow this winter. in Amsterdam. Cold at first, but then quite nice. And beautiful.

Scenery lines ... Photo taken a few years ago. I clearly remember us stopping the car because I 'saw' a photo. I had to walk back quite a bit to make the photo I had seen. The day was grey and bleak. And beautiful.

Misty morning. Beautiful and bleak.
Photo in black and white, but it's not very different from the original color version.

Outside the wind is howling - the few fall colors out there will probably be gone by tomorrow... But this tree was beautiful!

Tiles in beautiful blues with lovely motifs. Found on an outside wall in the city.
Inspiring!

Temperatures change, the air gets damp and greens turn yellow and red. I'd love to get some more sun, some more warmth. But I also love the colors and scents of fall...!

Last weekend a very short visit to one of my favorite places in the world, Stockholm.

A villanelle this time, a poem with repetitive lines in a specific order. Can’t really believe I was able to find lines that could be repeated. Wrote this just last week, so it’s really fresh! Click to read it.

The photo is from a few years ago, taken at the Eemshaven.

The Goudkantoor (Gold Office) from 1635, surrounded by buildings from the 1990's, seen from the second floor of Groningen's City Hall, that was open for visitors yesterday. Which was a really nice surprise!
