Day 239


His favorite spot. The dogs bed.

He sleeps here all day. Light from the laundry room streaming in.

Oscar is old.. about 16+ years old.

And sadly, is just not doing well any longer.

I wont let him suffer, so it may be a sad week around here.

Watching and loving him for the moment. ♥

Weekend Showcase : 20th - 26th August

Right as you have noticed I've been less active recently. So what's been happening with me huh. Well I'm lacking inspiration lately. I guess it happens to all of you now and then. I thought I'd do something completely different to re energize my creative soul. I've decided to some home improvements. Starting by doing up my son's bedroom. After the wall paper falling of the hundredth time I finally have cracked it yay !! Oh and I forgot I had annual leave booked for this week and next week at work. So more time at home can't beat that !!


So why have you chose this to go in the Weekend Showcase uzzi ? Pretty simple didn't really have many to choose from. But I must say I love the tones in this one. Let's just say this is not the last you will see of Little Oscar the teddy bear.


So that's me done with waffling. Take care peeps !!

HWS !!

'Is This My Best Angle?' On Black

Best to be viewed in large size format.

The Museum of Contemporary Art (in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro) was projected by the internationally reknown and centennial architect Oscar Niemeyer. Suggesting the shape of a flying saucer, it was built between 1991 and 1996, awaking love, admiration and curiosity. Landed on it´s promontory, the museum´s immaculate whiteness stands out against the backdrop where mother nature exaggerated in its beauty.


Well on my lap next to a halogen heater actually. I don't seem to have put up any pics of Oscar for ages ... I think he's wondering what I'm playing at lying back in the chair with the camera on my chest to get the picture :)

(I bracketed down the exposure a little to darken out any room detail :)

Best to be viewed in large size format.


The Cathedral of Brasília (Catedral Metropolitana Nossa Senhora Aparecida) is the Roman Catholic cathedral serving Brasília, Brazil, and serves as the seat of the Archdiocese of Brasília. It was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, and was completed and dedicated on May 31, 1970. The cathedral is a hyperboloid structure constructed from 16 concrete columns, weighing 90 tons each.

The exterior of the cathedral resembles the circular plan and ribbed structure of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, but the latter is clad in solid material, while the Cathedral of Brasília allows light in and out for almost the full height of the ribs.

Tall Ships Race Aalborg 2015 second evening.

This evening and night it was my intention to shoot the 70 sailing ships from the 11th floor of the high building located at Limfjordsbroen. Full Moon picture no. 22, I photographed from the 11th floor, but I changed my mind when all the ships would be too small.

I therefore went onto the sidewalk pointing towards the center of Aalborg, where also the vast majority of ships were moored. I waited for the full moon as I hoped came into sight.

Late in the evening the fog lifted, and the moon rose with a slight red tinge.

I hurried to take pictures when the moon sometimes disappeared between the clouds.


The Tall Ships Races first took place in 1956. The aim was to create a regatta for the world's most beautiful sailing ships, where crew members could meet across nationalities.


Committee Sail Training Association (later renamed Sail Training International) was established and was responsible for the course.


The regatta was so successful that it has since been arranged in different ports around Europe. The Tall Ships Races is the world's largest annual race for school and training ships.


Each year, over 100 ships of the size from 30 to 300 feet with crews which combined represent 3.000 to 4.000 young people from about 30 different nations. on black, please...

This shot was taken on my terrace on the first day Junior started turning up. He immediately took a shining to me and would try to come indoors when he saw me as well as coming right to my feet when I was outside. Too cute!


Papa Oscar was also quite the character and so entertaining, that I decided to give him and Hector Senior, the European wood mouse, their own little companion booklet for the fifth book in the upcoming picture series, "Flaushi the Buddha Jay."


Just like Papa Oscar, Junior would only come during the day and when it was sunny, bouncing around my terrace for hours at a time. And, like the other rodents and songbirds, he never left behind a trace and was super neat. But, unlike Papa Oscar, he just had to make off with all of Flaushi's peanuts. No matter how hard I tried to tell Junior to share, it was the all you can eat buffet for him. Alas, even giving him his very own pile, was still not enough for him.


So, after 6 weeks of the songbirds being super stressed out about Junior and the tiny wren along with a great tit chasing Junior all over the terrace one morning, I ended up successfully relocating Junior to a wonderful wild wooded area complete with a lake.

The term "sciuscià" appeared in Italy while the country was occupied by US forces during the last years of WWII (1944-1945), when it was common for several young italian boys to earn few moneys by cleaning the shoes of US soldiers, who usually referred to them as "shoeshine boys" or "shoe shiners", which in italian sounds like "sciuu-sciain(er)", leading to the italianized term "sciuscià".


"Sciuscià" is widely known as it is the original title of an italian movie, directed in 1946 by Vittorio De Sica, about two shoeshine boys trying to find the money to buy a horse. Regarded as De Sica's first major work, it was the first italian movie to receive an "Oscar" in 1948: it was an "Honorary Academy Award", the precursor of what would later become the "Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film".

In connection with my planned shooting from the top floor of the sea rescue building in Hirtshals, I photographed building with Rescue boat MARGRETHE Gaardboe lying in the harbor in front of the building. I had made 12 pieces 20x30 cm copies, which I gave them.

I have already called Rescue station and asked in a friendly tone for permission to climb to the top floor to photograph. It is OK . I had been told I would find the key to the station, so I drove well in advance to find out where the port was Moon rise.

I let me in, and inside was a whopping Rescue car which the crew uses to rescue drive. On the left side of the room there was a closet with 12 pieces. Rescue suits they use when they are sailing on the ocean.

It is extrem dangerous work and life is at stake with this work in huge waves !.

Since it smelled strongly of gasoline, I hurried and on the upper floor, where a quantity

equipment with lit computer screens stood. I moved some things on the windowsill and opened one of the windows completely. It was not yet dark, and a large seal lying on the beach. A few fishing boats sailing in and out of the harbor.

Soon there Moonrise, and when there is calm weather, I hope for sharp images.

I took many pictures and drove home after an exciting full moon trip.


Hirtshals - a unique geographic hub

Hirtshals has a unique geographical location only 20 minutes by boat from shipping routes between the west coast of Europe, Britain, Scandinavia and the Baltics, close to some of Europe's best fishing spots, and just at the start of the European motorway network.


Hirtshals location combined with an efficient infrastructure and a good logistics system to make the port a natural focal point for transport, fisheries, offshore and maritime service.


Dana, Danish research vessels. In 1920, the first named Dana - a motor schooner made ​​available by the EAC, with this ship carried the first of Dana-expeditions 1920-22. Since then, three ships have borne the name. Dana II carried out in 1928-30 one thousand leagues who helped to consolidate Denmark's position as havforskningsnation. Dana II sank in the North Sea in 1935 after the collision. Dana III was launched in 1938 and served in the following approx. 40 years until it was sold in 1977. Dana IV, launched in 1980, is a modern research ship of 2,500 GRT, designed for sailing around the world. The ship has a crew of approx. 18 and space for 10-16 researchers. Dana is connected to the Danish Institute for Fisheries Research and stationed in Hirtshals.

Finally, it seems to be optimal full moon weather this evening, calm, clear weather and temperature about 5 degrees. So I run off to Egholm ferries sailing passengers, cars and freight over to a small island located in the fjord about 500 meters from Aalborg.

It was my intention to shoot the big Marina which is located here, as there are about 1 hour to Moonrise, I decide to go a long exercise round, also to find a location.

All sailing boats were pulled up on land, so now had to plan B implemented.

Both ferries were currently in port, so I asked the captain if he knew where the moon rose. He knew it, and I therefore went around the harbor area to find the best POV.

I did not think it was successful, so I stared up at an apartment block which was close to.

I could see that all the way up to the top floor was constructed an exterior fire escape,

So when I suddenly saw a giant moon rising, I rushed into the waiting room, fitted equipped and went up to the top platform where I took a series of pictures. Very exciting and wonderful with this great big moon, no wind and a mirror of water, particularly when there early evening were clouds.

As I stood in the splendid quiet full moon night,

came a kayak beets sailing silently to the port where the boat turned and sailed back.

The atmosphere was indescribably beautiful.

As I stand there in the quiet moonlight and sees moonrise reflected in the still water,

I become pervaded by a feeling similar to love.


The small island of Egholm is located in the fjord between Aalborg and Nr. Sundby. In just minutes you can be sailed from the ferry landing in Aalborg vestby over the fjord to the island of Egholm. The island covers about 605 hectares. and the highest natural point is just 1.5 meters above the surface of the fjord.

The majority of Egholm is cultivated, but there is still the opportunity to enjoy the original and beautiful scenery on the island.

Egholm Beach

Egholm Beach is a fine and very shallow beach and the short ferry route, the beach is not far from the center of Aalborg. Kayakers from Aalborg can easily dock here.

It has established a network of paths on the island, which shows around to the view points where there is a broad view over the Limfjord waters and the surrounding hills. The island is best explored on foot or by bike.

At the harbor house are many people waiting for the fireworks




The activities stretched over 3 days, but I decided to wait to go where it was full moon.

I ate first and did not leave until 2030 and without a car, as it is nice with a long walk along the harbor. I usually take the scenery from the top of a high-rise building at the bridge, but I was afraid the ships looked too small, so I went close to the ships. First I went up to a balcony in the newly built Music House at the harbor, but too little forgrund so I went again. A young music student tried to stop me at the entrance, but I managed to persuade him even if the closing time approached.

The start of the fireworks approached, and I placed myself at the UTZON CENTER,

Where 2 big sailboats lay moored here the huge Russian MIR.

Next to me, I saw a young woman's foot dangerously close to a tripod leg, so I had to keep an eye on it. Suddenly there was a man who said: Your stand is completely crooked!

It was correct what he said, but the horizon of the camera was not crooked.

I knew him already, so we agreed to meet up on the bridge where the picture was taken.

On my way there I walked past a stand where a singer and an orchestra played.

Suddenly I encountered a young woman who made me aware that the full moon had risen.

That was correct, so I hurried with the camera on the stand up on the bridge, where the full moon was very beautiful, but when I was going to take the picture, some clouds came.

However, I took many pictures as there were also many mirrors.

It was over midnight, so when I got past the restaurant ship PRINSES JULIANA,

I could not help going out on the newly constructed wooden bridge by the ship.

I took a number of pictures at different angles, and then went home along the beautiful waterfront. When I got home, I cleaned the equipment and went to bed for a couple of hours over midnight after an exciting photo tour.

Michael Buble feat. Laura Pausini - You will never Find - Caught in the Act

I think you touched when you hear the song !!!!!!!!!! Yes !!!!!!!!!!


On 19 September 2013 was the full moon, but unfortunately cloudy.

The following day however, there was absolutely no wind, almost cloudless, and when the moon this evening got up almost at the same time as the sun went down, I decided to take to Sæby to photograph the beautiful harbor, where almost only yacht.

The highest point overlooking the harbor was FRANKS restaurant, which is located right on the harbor. Here I was allowed to go through the restaurant, where there was a lot of people and ate the most fish board. I went out on a porch where I an hour standing on a stable table and photographed.

It was getting dark and I walked at a fast pace back to the car with the camera on a heavy tripod. Suddenly I met a group of young women who definitely was ready to talk and asked me to photograph them. I had no time and quickly went on. Suddenly shouted one of the women that I had to photograph her ​​naked, but I was unfortunately still on. Later I wondered whether it might be too much liquor they had received. But over by the car park was now completely dark, lit only by street lights and moonlight. In the harbor there was two fish vessels, and there really was calm now with reflections and blue moonlight, I took a number of pictures.

Restaurant ship PRINSES JULIANA Aalborg Denmark I have photographed so many times that I decided to photograph it from a tall building with the bridge in the foreground. One of the apartments closest to the bridge at the top, I tried to get permission to photograph from the balcony. It did not succeed. A business in the basement could inform me that I should try asking in a bakery around the corner.

Here I tel and the name of a lady who lived at the top and had 5 balconies.

The one I called and was allowed to come at a time when she was at home.

Since then, an evening with almost cloudless sky, I called her and got the license.

I took 15 pictures, chose the best and sent it to the kind lady who helped me.

I also sent a picture to the owner of the restaurant ship PRINSES JULIANA, and to the owner of Harbour House.

They bought them, PRINSES JULIANA put it immediately into facebook and Cover picture on the website here.

O Museu Oscar Niemeyer localiza-se na cidade de Curitiba, capital do estado do Paraná, Brasil.


O complexo de dois prédios, instalado em uma área de trinta e cinco mil metros quadrados (dos quais dezenove mil dedicados à área de exposições), é um verdadeiro exemplo da Arquitetura aliada à Arte.


O primeiro prédio foi projetado por Oscar Niemeyer em 1967, fiel ao estilo da época, concebido como um Instituto de Educação. Este edifício possui o segundo maior vão livre do Brasil, com 65m. Foi reformado e adaptado à função de museu, para o qual Niemeyer projetou o anexo, lembrando um olho, imprimindo-lhe uma nova identidade característica.


Inaugurado no dia 22 de novembro de 2002 com o nome de Novo Museu, com a conclusão do anexo foi reinaugurado em 8 de Julho de 2003, recebendo a atual denominação. É conhecido localmente como Museu do Olho, devido ao design de seu edifício e como MON, abreviatura para Museu Oscar Niemeyer.


A instituição tem como foco as artes visuais, a arquitetura e o design. Pela sua grandiosidade, beleza e pela importância do acervo, atualmente representa uma instituição cultural com projeção nacional e internacional


Fonte: Wikipedia


The Oscar Niemeyer Museum (Portuguese: Museu Oscar Niemeyer) is located in the city of Curitiba, in the state of Paraná, in Brazil. It was inaugurated in 2002 with the name Novo Museu or New Museum. With the conclusion of remodeling and the construction of a new annex, it was reinaugurated on July 8, 2003, with the current denomination to honor its famous architect who completed this project at 95 years of age. It is also known as Museu do Olho or Museum of the Eye, due to the design of the building.


The museum focuses on the visual arts, architecture and design. For its magnificence, beauty and for the importance of the collection, it represents a cultural institution of international significance. The complex of two buildings, installed in an area of 35 thousand square meters (of which 19 thousand are dedicated to exhibition space), it is a true example of architecture allied with art. The first building was designed by Oscar Niemeyer in 1967, faithful to the style of the time, and conceived as an educational institute. It was remodeled and adapted to function as a museum, for which Niemeyer designed the annex, reminiscent of an eye, imprinting it with a new characteristic identity.


The museum features many of Niemeyer's signature elements: bold geometric forms, sculptural curved volumes placed prominently to contrast with rectangular volumes, sinuous ramps for pedestrians, large areas of white painted concrete, and areas with vivid murals or paintings. A collaborator previously on Ibirapuera Park with landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx, Niemeyer's namesake museum is also within a garden designed by Burle Marx, and that within 144 thousand square meters of woodland. Though rooted in modern architecture since his involvement in the international style, Niemeyer's designs have much in common with postmodern architecture as well and this is as contemporary a building as the artwork it displays.

It is surprising that no woman has won the Oscar award for Best Director in the history of the Academy Awards until yesterday. Kathryn Bigelow entered the history by becoming the first woman to bag the award at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards.

Bigelow has beaten her ex-husband James Cameron, who was also in the race for Best Director for his film Avatar.

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I keep my eyes wide open all the time

I keep the ends out for the tie that binds

Because you're mine, I walk the line


I find it very, very easy to be true

I find myself alone when each day is through

Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you

Because you're mine, I walk the line


As sure as night is dark and day is light

I keep you on my mind both day and night

And happiness I've known proves that it's right

Because you're mine, I walk the line


You've got a way to keep me on your side

You give me cause for love that I can't hide

For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide

Because you're mine, I walk the line


I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I keep my eyes wide open all the time

I keep the ends out for the tie that binds

Because you're mine, I walk the line

From my 2005 collection.


USS Lexington, known as "The Blue Ghost", is one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers built during World War II for the United States Navy. The ship, the fifth US Navy ship to bear the name, is named in honor of the Revolutionary War Battle of Lexington. She was originally to have been named Cabot, but she was renamed while under construction to commemorate USS Lexington (CV-2), lost in the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942.

Lexington was commissioned in February 1943, and served in several campaigns in the Pacific Theater of Operations, receiving the Presidential Unit Citation and 11 battle stars for World War II service. Like many of her sister ships, Lexington was decommissioned shortly after the end of the war, but was modernized and reactivated in the early 1950s, being reclassified as an attack carrier (CVA), and then an antisubmarine carrier (CVS). In her second career, she operated both in the Atlantic/Mediterranean and the Pacific, but spent most of her time, nearly 30 years, on the east coast as a training carrier (CVT).

She was decommissioned in 1991, remaining active longer than any other Essex-class ship, and was donated for use as a museum ship in Corpus Christi, Texas. Lexington was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2003.
