ubbyisis' playground and gallery

I realized I’m a true hillbilly (?) when I thought ”Wow, lamps that lighten my path” Haven’t been walking under streetlights since we moved out here a long long time ago

The weather gods fooled me again :confused:;)

Me, in the beginning of my walk: "Wow, finally some sunshine, just as they had promised :thumbs:":

Me, half an hour later: ":(:mad: f-word"

Me 20 minutes later: "OK, this looks quite nice, IF it had been April :whistle:"

Me back home: "Perhaps I feel better if I do an AI retouch of that grumpy old lady :thinking:"

Waiting for Jul (Yule)

The traditional Swedish Santas are not the big fat Disney version of Saint Nicolaus. Of course we imported the american version in the 60s. But in the old time people believed in gnomes (tomte in Swedish). They often caused a lot of mess for people but if you were kind to them, placing a bowl of porridge outside your house, they rewarded you.

This gnome was painted with vivid colours when we got it, but after 30 years outside it is going back to nature

Same but not same

People sometimes ask me if it’s not boring to walk along the same roads everyday all year round. I always answer NO. Because it’s never the same. Just as the saying ”No man ever steps in the same river twice”

Agree. We walk and drive the same roads and routes over and over. We go down roads we don’t have to just to see what’s changed. :lmao:
 
Hurry hurry - this must be completed before tomorrow afternoon

Linus won’t appreciate that it will only be the three of us on Christmas Eve. The usual family gatehering will take place on Tuesday instead. That’s fine for us ”grownups” - well almost fine. But for Linus, who can’t understand why, and who’s looking forward to Christmas Eve all year it’s not so easy.
We are now working hard fixing his ”schedule board”. He arrives here tomorrow

Relaxed Santa

My boys had to drive to the grocery store because we’re having a party tomorrow. It wasn’t planned that way, so our fridge was almost empty :eek: While in town they had lunch at a burger place. I'm not a big fan of the fast-food industry so I just had to replace the background with something nicer.

Did this with Picsart

Every cloud has a…

golden lining :cool:

needed to use a lot of zoom - I think I used max (25x) to see it properly ;)

This one surprised me. I just wanted to get as much as possible of the golden line in my photo. When I looked at the image I noticed two roe deers in the field. Impossible to see them without the zoom or binoculars.

same spot with the standard wide lens

I have found that 25x to have some amazing results in the right conditions.
