Impressions 01

Exactly one year ago, February 26th, 2014 - 7 am
Beban Dog Park

Fortunately, no snow so far this year

I always carry a camera with me. And sometimes I am walking around if I would be a tourist. Or I drive in my car and something catches my eye, I park the vehicle, grab the camera and go.

Being curious and alert at the same time can give you excellent captures.

For example I love early morning walks. I have experienced the most incredible sun rises at the beach, at 6 am. Not planned, just a spontaneous idea while getting ready for a morning walk with the dog.

Fortunately my favorite beach is just a 15-minute-drive away. 

I don't live in a big city, AND on an island. Who ever lived in a big city may feel a bit lost here. Sometimes. Whatever special wishes and needs you might have, you have to order online. And wait for it, most of the time for weeks.

But, when I look at my archive of pictures, I know that it is worth living here.

Please, be my guest and enjoy the first random selection of 'snapshots'. 
Feedback is always appreciated and welcome.

Buttertubs Marsh - Bird Sanctuary. A 3-minute walk away from my home.
The whole way around is approximately 2,5 km. No dogs and no bicycles allowed.

Title, anyone? I would say: the end of a new beginning...
