I wanted to stop and take a photo of a little dog with a cute dog coat a chilly day. But... I passed the man with the dog and couldn't bring myself to ask if I could take a photo of his little pet. I was so disappointed at myself. What was I afraid of? Would it be so hard if I got a no for answer.
Suddenly when I got closer to the church I saw that the helicopter that I had heard some minutes earlier above me was standing on the lawn in front of the Manor. I thought it was an unusual kind of parking, and now something miraculously happened! I felt that my legs went towards the helicopter man, and my mouth beguine to open up. My ears heard my voice talking to the man about what he was doing there and finally:
- Can I take a photo of the helicopter?
I felt like a winner when I left the man who was waiting for the local airport to open, which is 12 on Saturdays. He had landed because he thought he could drop some equipment at the hotel reception of the Manor. But that was also closed at this time.....
This photo was taken some weeks earlier when we visited the Manor which has a fine restaurant. The red house in the background is the hotel part. During our dinner my youngest went around in the house and took so many photos of everything she thought was beautiful and interesting. As I have them in my computer I want show you some of them.
The photos were taken some days after Bart Boehlert wrote on his blog how he had bought gladiolas and remembered the time when he was a kid and his mother used to buy them at farmers market. But I didn't know that my daughter had taken these photos when I wrote a comment that I like them so much and Bart answered that we should bring them back.
I like this photo so much because of the perspective my daughter had when she watched and adored this painting. We haven't got any snow yet but yesterday we talked about how much she longed for winter and snow.
