Playtime with Oscar, my new camera, straight after breakfast – we had a bit of sunshine to start with. Had big problems getting my all-weather boots on, was struggling – for some reason my feet was so swollen …. took me about 20 min.
Had them for years and never had problems. With boots on feet and camera in hand …. It was very bitter and really an unpleasant day, but I just had to get out there and see what Oscar could do for me.
No doubt about it; Spring has arrived already … the park was full with snowdrops, crocus and winter aconite. Also the forsythia was nearly blooming … and some cheery trees (I think) had some blooms. Far too early, last year we waited until May nearly.
The birds was singing so I nearly got headache – all on the same time. I just manage to get to the Art Hall when the fog started to roll in – and all the birds went very quiet and it became freezing cold. Not easy to take photo with glows on, also when I took on my gloves I notice I got one glove of two different pair – was lucky I had got one of each. Life isn’t suppose be easy and they where black both.
Walked around in new harbor area, with terrible exclusive apartments … but no trees or plants, just down by the seafront, Nyhamn it’s named. I wouldn’t live there if they gave me one of the apartments.
No atmosphere at all, but fantastic views on a clear day – over Öresund (the water between Denmark and Sweden) and all the way to Denmark. As I was walking along the quayside the fishing tour boat came filled with happy amateur fishermen. They must have left home about 5am.
Walked my way back to the town center – there was some kind of “after ski” parties on all the pubs organized by Jägermeister, one pub had even got some snow into the main street.
People were having a good time and great dancing music was blasted out – they had then gone on since I passed the town center 3.5 hours earlier, still going strong. All dressed up in skiing outfits.
I had a nice large cappuccino in mind since hours back … and a grilled sourdough sandwich at the Espresso House, a true treat. Sat there for an hour to get the heat back into the old body. It was extremely busy … people in all ages treated themselves, Saturday treat maybe – I was lucky to get a seat.
Then straight home through the fog that was thick as milk. It was so nice to come into my warm and cozy apartment and … my first walkabout with Oscar was over. I enjoyed taking photos in the fog … beautiful results! First time ever I done it.
A little story about fog … from my years in UK, they have plenty of it. Was living in Dover at the time and there the fog just came from nowhere in minutes. One morning they said on the news that the fog was so severe that Europe was cut off from UK!!!
That is the way an empire thinks. It wasn’t the other way around – that maybe it was UK that was cut off from Europe.
P.S. I think Oscar did a great job with my Saturday – he are so easy to handle, a bit too easy at times, but we are getting there.
