… what your imagination might tell you about deep, dark waters . It may be all wrong…
who wouldn’t want
to stroll along a lake, a stream
or in the woods
experience the scents, the sounds
fill the eyes with beauty
be fully present there and then
and to get it all at once
My photos is from Fredriksdal, Museums & Gardens.
I was there easter saturday, but since then it has been very cold and windy so I haven’t revisited the gorgeous surroundings since. But I will! It takes me only about 10 minutes to bike there from where I live, and now, only 10 days later and despite the harsh weather, it’s already much greener. Lovely summer-days are closing in
I was trying to explain about this wonderful museum-area in English, but I had to give up! Would probably have had difficulties explain about Fredriksdal in Swedish as well. It would have taken some serious amount of time, so to speak…
The link HERE is to the main site written in Swedish. At the top there is a Translation-button, but remember it’s generated by Google and as such there may very well be errors in the translation. But better than nothing!
And I’m so lucky to live in a city where there is so much to see and experience! So many parks and beautiful areas. And the long beeches… Well! The entire city is beautiful – on the whole…
When visiting the aunt – and she still has the cousins old wooden trains…
The first I saw when I entered the wood (i.e. huge park-area) Pålsjö skog, was not all the beech trees nor the other burgeoning greenery. It was the endless carpets of wood anemones that caught my eyes. I stopped my bike, descended and just went on walking very slowly along the lane, breathing the fresh air, and drinking the beauty around me.
And spring is finally here, that’s for sure! (I hope)
At the old Pavillion, once upon a time built for dancing, you can sit down and enjoy waffles. With or without toppings. And with, for example, coffee! Sitting away from the slightly chilly wind, embracing the sun, was so wonderful. Feelings of being secure, calm, relaxed – and happy – filled me from top to bottom. Really good gut-feelings!
The pavillion, rotunda! If I don’t remember wrong, at least there are possibilities to dance here in the summer. Particularly Midsummer eve.
From some distance…
And no! No toppings for me. Cream makes me feel ill in my stomach; I don’t like jam – too sweet; and didn’t feel like having something salty today. But the waffle was delicious nevertheless. Hot, crispy and with a superb hint of vanilla.
Anemone quinquefolia is an early-spring flowering plant in the genus Anemone, native to North America. It is commonly called wood anemone, like Anemone nemorosa, a closely related European species. The American species has been treated as a subspecies of Anemone nemorosa.
But another furniture superstore. Not as big as Ikea, but certainly not small. MIO!
I was there to buy myself a decent bed. And I found one which I liked very much and chose. Can’t sleep on the sofa in the long run. Been doing that for 6 months. And been living here in my new apartment in my hometown, after moving back, for 2 months.
How fast time passes by…
The renovation of the room – painting all over, new wallpapers and a really nice parquet flooring of oak – is done. So it was about time to get a bed and some other new stuff, and I thought a bed was the most important.
I think that white book shelf is very appealing… Maybe? Sometime?
… and the bed…
the adjustable one…
and with the “bed head piece”
(have absolutely no idea what that is called in english
My town! In the midst of – and the oldest part of it.The (almost) original
I guess you know by now – I can’t resist colors.
And I certainly couldn’t resist to put roses in the sky
On the other side, behind my back that is, we have the old tower. Kärnan. (The Core)
Built between 1310 and 1320.
The city itself is roughly 200 years older, but have roots from 800 – 1000.
While there were vikings lurking around the known world.
(sorry! This one is more dedicated to the history but isn’t translated into english.)

Yes! Color it was and color it is!
The close-UP! (LOL)
Slightly dreamy, ne c’ pas?
I really like this one!
A little bit too hasty, perhaps?
The task on for Weekly Photo Challenge this week was a bit tricky. A good match!
Lot’s of things goes very well together, but my mind went blank.
Then I cooked. Just plain spaghetti with tomato sauce. Simple enough! But if that doesn’t go well together – what does?
The sauce is made of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tomatoes and spices.
Red chilipaste, some broth, oregano, salt, lemonpeppar… Just boil, mix together, spice it enogh to your own taste. I also added som fresh spinach.
Then enjoy with spaghetti. In my case, glutenfree.
For four years now, I’ve had this Domain registration on this blog together with a privacy protection. In all 26 USD/year. I don’t want to have that any longer, I don’t want to pay anything at all to WP any longer. Not that 25 USD is the end of the world, but there are other things I rather would spend it on.
The main reason though, that I want to remove this domain upgrade, is that I think WP due to its “enhancements” has made blogging more irritating and time consuming. It’s not easier to move around, the “improved editor” is hopeless, and the app is… okay practical to use for scrolling through the reader…
I shouldn’t complain to much perhaps. Despite the “enhancements” WP still might be the best blogg-host, compared to other options – not that I know of every option there is. (And as long as I won’t encounter wordpress.org) But I don’t want to pay for this upgrade any longer. It isn’t worth it! The only noticable and visible change is the name. With the domain this blogs name is: http://www.ordibild.com. Without it’s called http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com. So!!!!!!??????
And the privacy protection part? I can’t notice any difference from my other blogs! Maybe due to a strong password which I change now and then, and that the mailadress I have here, only is connected to WP and never use anywhere else?
But how do I do to get rid of it?
I must say! It’s D.I.F.F.I.C.U.L.T to find information. First of all to find any information, second to find a clear concise information about this particular question. After hours of searching, the only thing I found was that I could remove ordibild.com, but nothing says if I still will have http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com? I think so, but can I be sure? Will I still have my posts and my images? Will I still have YOU – my wonderful skillful followers? Or will everything be removed???? All of it????
I have been pondering, should I instead manually delete Words&Pics the ordinary way? Just poofff bang bye and gone forever the entire blog? And instead focus on my other blog where I write more? The blog A new beginning? (Haven’t written much lately, moved to another city, you know, will be back on track)
Or should I just remove “ordibild.com the domain” and hope for the best! Taking a chance all the content still will be there and that none of you will lose me, and therefore I lose you.
Let me have a day or two to reflect on this a bit more. Somehow I’ll remove the domain. And I hope, if lost, we all can find each other again. There are ways!
I’ll be – if possible – at http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com or – if the other occurs – at A new beginning where I in that case will post both images as well as written some-things.
And after all – I’ve just started A New Life! In my original hometown! I’ve already reconnected to some of my old friends AND have met new ones! In less then three weeks. Sometimes it feels funny, awkward, to change what eleven years have done to me, into not the old me, but into a new me. So now I’m picking myself up, dusting myself off, getting myself together, leaving the bad things behind, embrace the learnt lessons- and start my life again, new and refreshed. In a much better place,
That, I think, is a good match. After all that has happened and to all that now will happen. 😀
“Dance, my little angels, dance!”
… when the helpers are gone and I’m all alone in my new apartment.
Taking it slow with some bottled water, freshly brewed coffee and
home-made chocolate mousse.
“Can I have some more coffee, please! And why not some soft music?”
… to repurpose. But while remaining in the land of Nothingness & In-between, I could reuse a photo and make it into something else. Still an image though…
The Helsingborg harbour entrance with the light house – which is not quite as old as I have made it look. 😉 😀
It isn’t the first time I realize that I prefer warm colors over cold, light over darkness, even though I also want contrast both in light/dark and warm/cold. I realized now when I added the images, that three of them very much resemble each other. I guess that’s a part of my personal style. As for the meditative and spiritual… thing.
I’m happy that I seem to have started to play with images again, despite the fact I don’t presently take any new photos. So this one I’ve found in my foto-library from april 2008. It’s taken in Borås which I visited at that time. (Once upon a time I was born there…)
The staty is situated in the river Viskan, (river?!?!?), and the wall behind is the old Cinema-building, Röda Kvarn. (Red Mill; Moulin Rouge. 😉 ) I haven’t the faintest idea what it is used for nowadays. In 2008 it wasn’t used as cinema any longer, but I’ve forgotten what was in there instead. Some kind of theater?
So this is the original photo. Not a particularly good one technically speaking. I realized after a while, that that camera was pretty – LOUSY! Even my not-so-advanced cell phone at that time (not an iPhone) took better photos. My iPhone 5 now is excellent compared to that old HP. And I’m more and more longing for a real camera. … though I haven’t decided yet which camera I want. And don’t have that kind of money now. Need some stuff for my new apartment first.
The only thing I did with this before playing around with filters, was to crop it a little bit and slightly enhanced light, contrast and sharpened it with an easy hand
And here is a photo of the Cinema building “en face”.
(In 1968 when I moved away from this city, there were no such huge buildings. Time flies and other worlds are born… )
In the middle of everything.
Just wondering… is this house still there? Nine years have gone since I visited this area. What does it look like in the summer? When the trees and bushes are green, how much of the house can you see from the road? And the people who live there? Do they only live there during the summer, or all year around? Questions arise in my mind, I won’t get any other answers than my imagination gives me.
It seems to be nostalgically romantic, doesn’t it?
