my ship is coming in

styxor; no, rather not. not yet. but seeing this at a guided tour through the drach cave (caves of the dragon) of portocristo (mallorca) charon and river acheron (styx if you prefer) naturally and immediately came to mind…

for now i’ll settle with listening to walter jackson’s wonderful my ship is coming in. mine will too, but hopefully not for long.

and yes, the link is actually for coming home, i couldn’t link to my ship due to legal reasons. but welcome home feels about the same…

weekly photo challenge: doors (an italian odyssey)

doorsso, it was about 30 years ago (sigh!) and i was backpacking in italy. i had borrowed an old pentax camera with 2 lenses, trying to transfer a growing interest in making pictures into practice. it didn’t go very well… one of my inspirations, and aspirations, was to make a poster with doors and knockers – so with the weekly challenge this came into mind again. i know i should have left it in the dusty bin it was stored in, the pictures are shamefully unsharp to start with. anyways, some 30 years ago i had an ambition, and as i say nowadays – ambition is just another word for failure.

weekly photo challenge: ROY G.BIV (I’m a rainbow)

i'm a rainbowvery infrequently posting at the moment, it’s high season for photography – families, portraits and weddings – but not so much of what is for pleasure only. last week’s travel to the US at least gave the chance to process a couple of shots from last year’s (!) Stockholm Music & Arts festival. One of the female vocalists in GHOST goes by the name Roy G. Biv, so here we go…

oh, by the way, i’m a little less infrequent over at instagram. @inognisenso, if you want to check me out. welcome!

weekly photo challenge: broken

brokeni’m old enough to remember backpacking in a world without cellphones and text messaging, when you had to get coins and then find a phone booth to call home and tell you are still safe and sound. who needs phone booths nowadays? i hope no one needs this one in an emergency situation.
