A pretty little park in Aalborg, Denmark. That bench afforded a wonderful view of the fountain....

Isn't it weird?

Isn't it strange?

Even though we're just two strangers on this runaway train

We're both trying to find a place in the sun

We've lived in the shadows, but doesn't everyone?

Isn't it strange how we all feel a little bit weird sometimes?

Weird, oh ho

Isn't it hard

Standing in the rain?

You're on the verge of going crazy and your heart's in pain

No one can hear, but you're screaming so loud

You feel like you're all alone in a faceless crowd

Isn't it strange how we all get a little bit weird sometimes?

Sitting on the side

Waiting for a sign

Hoping that my luck will change

Reaching for a hand that can understand someone who feels the same

When you live in a cookie-cutter world, being different is a sin

So you don't stand out

But you don't fit in


I look at her and know... we are getting a little bored are we. :)

Just a place in the sun


She sure is my little Miss Sunshine to me.

Maybe it's the early Spring sunshine, or maybe it's this outfit, but I'm suddenly wishing I could find a place in the sun to sit and play a guitar... If only I could play the guitar?!

My last upload for a week or so as I will be away exploring the magical beauty of the Isle of Skye. See you all on the flipside unless I decide to stay there of course! ;)


Stay safe my Flickr friends!

With the weather still wintry outdoors, it was a treat to see and photograph these colorful blossoms next to a bench in the Matthaei Botanical Gardens conservatory, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

When the shroom I already introduced you to in my last picture noticed that I watched him, he asked me to come closer. Such a sunny spectacle could be enjoyed even more in good comapny, he said. How right he was!

After I secured the scenery in a bunch of pixels, we both stared into the skie's blaze. The little shroom-scamp tried every now and then to sneakily put his arm around me, but noticed pretty fast, that he didn't got one. Presumably he had enjoyed way too much sun, as I also noticed how it slowly but surely melted my brain cells which then dripped like liquid honey onto the ground. Hopefully new, intelligent shroom generations will soon grow from them.


Oh boy. :)

Als der Pilz, den ich euch im letzten Bild bereits vorgestellt habe, bemerkte, dass ich ihn beobachtete, lud er mich ein, näher zu kommen. So ein sonniges Spektakel könne man doch bedeutend besser in Gesellschaft genießen, meinte er. Und wie recht er hatte!

Nachdem ich die Szenerie in einem Haufen Pixel gesichert hatte, starrten wir gebannt in die Himmelsglut. Der kleine Pilzschlingel versuchte ab und an heimlich seinen Arm um mich zu legen, bemerkte aber recht schnell, dass er gar keinen besaß. Vermutlich hatte er schon zu viel Sonne genossen, denn auch ich merkte, wie sie mir langsam aber sicher die Hirnzellen schmelzen ließ, die dann wie flüssiger Honig auf den Boden troffen. Hoffentlich erwachsen aus ihnen bald neue, intelligente Pilzgenerationen.


Oh man. :)

1977 Fleetwood Mac -Rumours

Pablo Cruise - A Place in the Sun

Prince - For You, Street Songs

Van Morrison - Into the Music and Beautiful Vision

Maze with Frankie Beverly - Joy and Pain

Huey Lewis and The News - Sports and Power of Love

John Fogerty - Centerfield

Journey - Raised on Radio

Mother Nature is slowly reclaiming what is hers with this old abandoned cabin near Humbug CA. When you hike around the area you will find many old places like this one. It's fun to imagine what it must have been like back in the day.

"Like a Long Lonely Stream...

I keep runnin' towards a dream, movin' on, movin' on "


From the song: "A Place in the Sun" written by Ron Miller and Bryan Wells

(Little) Stevie Wonder had a top 10 hit with this in 1966 and the Young Rascals featured the song on their huge #5 Billboard chart album, "Groovin'" in 1967.

Yesterday, we finally got some winter snow, but today it melts slowly away again ... so I go back to 2013 :)

Heute vormittag schien die Sonne - nun ist es schon wieder bedeckt.

Let Me Kiss You ❣

There's a place in the sun for anyone

Who has the will

Chase one and I think I found mine

Yes I do believe I have found mine.

So, close your eyes

And think of someone you physically admire

And let me kiss you, oh.

Let me kiss you, oh.


I zigzagged all over America

And I cannot find

A safety haven

Say, would you let me cry on your shoulder

I've heard that you'd try anything twice


Close your eyes

And think of someone you physically admire

And let me kiss you, oh.

Let me kiss you, oh.


But then you open your eyes

And you see someone that you physically despise

But my heart is open

My heart is open to you...

The bench offers now a place in the sun, the leaves are falling.


Die Bank am See bekommt mehr Sonne - dank der fallenden Blätter.
