Ascension Day, a suitable day to listen to heavenly music: Joni Mitchell – Mingus, with important contribution by the heavenly bass player and musician Jaco Pastorius!
I do not regret buying a turntable of good quality some 25 years later! And I bought good vinyl records back then (this particular LP already 1979-80!).
This time of the year I do love dandelions; they brighten my days with the intense yellow colour and later in the season with the mysterious white balls. A white ball in combination with my favourite colour green is lovely!
When you walk in the nature right now, it is very rewarding to look down on the ground, especially in areas with a lot of flowers. I do love Spring!
Once upon a time I was ambitious taking close-up photos every day with my big camera, i.e. DSLR, thus I could use titles like the above. Well, every week, to be honest I mean every week during the “warm” season when there are flowers.
Since then a lot has happend; the main thing is that I follow the trend to take photos with a smaller camera, a device I always have in my pocket. Aha, a mobile phone you might think! But I refer to a small advanced compact camera which fits my pocket! I have choosen a Canan Powershoot S120, which gives me reasonable quality for a reasonable price, and of course fits small pockets!
Today I made a long walk, 21 km, in the Eco Park of Omberg and beside my small camera I also brought my heavy one!
I found an interesting flower, ramson, which I seldom see! The photo is not taken with a macro lens, but I consider it to be a close-up photo!
It is late April and it feels like early summer! The wood anemones have been present since a month, and now the dandelions are coming strong! The one in the picture can be found within 100 metres from my home.
