Photo walk

There is an old graveyard, situated among moors and hills, close to the rocky coastline of western Norway. In the old days there were no roads here, the sea was their highway between communities. It was their livelihood and in very many cases, their death. And after that, it was the road to their last resting place. These graves are from the the 18. century, and they bear witness to lives lived in this harsh environment. Many died young. 

































And of course, there were hearts.

August Break 2015. Day 29: Listening

On this full moon evening 
I went off on a full moon quest, 
even though it was raining and 
really there was no chance of seeing 
the full moon rising. 
So obviously 
I ended up sitting in my car, 
listening to, and watching 
incessant rain, 
but still enjoying myself.

August Break 2015. Day 28: In My Bag

I am a bag organizer person. Compulsive. I have to know where everything is, to the degree that I can put my hand into my bag, without looking, and immediately pull out the item I want. So I collect bag organizers. The ones I use at the moment are 2 red ones. Identical, one big and one small. This bag is really a picnic basket. I use it in the car. It goes in the passenger seat, wherever I go. In some cases I'll take out the whole basket. Or if that's not needed, I'll bringing a smaller bag and just transfer the items I need for the occasion. Or I'll just take out my purse, which is really just a wallet that also has room for my phone, and it has a shoulder strap.
I am a compulsive bag organizing person :-)
BTW, I seem to have forgotten to mention what's in my bag, but that's not important, whats important is how it's organized :-)

August Break 2015. Day 27: Favorite Recipe

I don't have a favorite recipe, but I have lots of new recipe books. 7 years ago I went low carb/high fat, originally to lose weight. And I lost 18 kilos in 3 months, without ever going hungry. For a few years I was on and off, and gained 3-4 kilos. I have tried out different variations, and have seen that I'm sensitive to carbs, so now I practice strict LCHF. That means that I don't eat potatoes, rice, pasta, grains or sugar. I eat all kinds of pure meat and fish, unprocessed, and lots of veggies, with reduced amounts of root vegetables. I had to learn how to cook all over, and make everything I eat from scratch. Once you get into it, it takes no more time than traditional cooking. For sweetener I use erythritol, which is plant based, and does not affect the blood sugar. I like the kind that is mixed with stevia. I don't consider myself being on a diet, for me it's a lifestyle :-)

Can you see that this water fall is heart shaped? 
And that the love is pouring out?

August Break 2015. Day 18: Look Up

I heard a lot of chattering above me, and I looked up.
These guys were really catching up on the gossip,
or discussing which route to take.
Geese are flying south so it must be officially autumn now,
and yet we're having the warmest days of this summer.

So many things I could have written about last year, 
but I'll leave it with this Facebook post from August.

August Break 2015. Day 10: Talisman

I don't really have a talisman, so I think the closest I would get is that I find hearts everywhere.

August Break 2015. Day 6: Notebook

Like so many others, I love getting new notebooks. I have restricted myself to buying ones that are on sale... or really cheap at regular price... or really, really cute... etc.

Photo walk at Åkrasanden

Åkrasanden is located on Karmøy island, south of Haugesund. The day was overcast, with really dark clouds looming on the horizon. From time to time the sun broke through and drew out the blue and turquoise colors of the waters above the sandy bottom. 



I love, and I'm always impressed by this little flower 
that thrives in such a salty environment.





Getting down low, there's a micro cosmos to explore.



Birds like to hangout at the beach too.





Look up or down, there's sunshine.



Patterns, shapes and colors.







Different, but together.



Some more of nature's doodles.



 I keep getting drawn back to the water's edge.









Man's footprints are all too obvious.






But:




Ending this on a beach heart note:
