2014


























I have been photographing and snap shooting with my iPhone, my small or big Nikon for several years.
I have captured many places, events and people.

In May 2013 I met a sporty French guy who had just arrived in Stavanger (from Annecy, in the French Alps.)
He not only wanted to go to the North Cape, he actually DID IT, alone, and on his bike!

Take a good look at his blog: http://latitudesnordiques.blogspot.fr

Google translate it if you don't read French.

Of all the nice and interesting people I have met, I think JULIEN became the hero!

The message to all of us on the first day of the new year is NEVER GIVE UP, and if you have DREAMS / WISHES ........ just GO FOR IT!

THANKS to all of you who leave a comment on my postings from time to time.
It is very much appreciated.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

And I didn't feel like bicycling outdoors yesterday because the temps were only in the low 40s . . . :-)

It is good to have a goal and a great adventure. It is also good to live a day-to-day life well.
