lens-artists challenge – something different

Have heard about this photo challenge, but haven’t found it until now… I just jump in here, because I love different objects. I hope it’s okay.

“A new broom can sweep the floor,
but an old broom knows where the dirt is.”
Paul Mooney

Colorful brooms that I saw outside a little hardware store in Costa Nova, Portugal last year.

“You never know when you’re going to get an opportunity.”
Dwight Henry

An old suitcase filled with metal-leftover that I found at the Dry Bridge Flea Market in Tbilisi in Georgia on Christmas Eve last year.

“Even a single lamp dispels the deepest darkness.”
Mahatma Gandhi

A trendy book lamp that was on display in the shop at one of my favorite art museums – Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark

“Ballet is the fairies’ baseball.”
Oscar Levant

A little more of Denmark, I was enjoying the Nutcracker Ballet at Det Kongelige Teater in December 2018 and in the foyer they had the most stunning Christmas tree made from exhausted ballet shoes.

“In a restaurant, choose a table near a waiter.”
Jewish Proverb

When I visit Hong Kong in 2015 … I had a fantastic dinner at a restaurant by name “The Principal” (today closed – then one of the top restaurants in the city) – enjoyed a 7-course dinner and this was how they served their broth, in cellophane paper tied with a beautiful blue ribbon.

    • Yes, Leya talked about when we had our day at the Botanic garden in Copenhagen. You can just click on the link in the post under the audio player. Happy Spring to you!!! Flying to Dublin on Sunday. Time to catch up with my friends over on Ireland. SunnyHug.

  1. Wow – the photos were a bit abstract until you revealed what they were – how fun – and the cellophane around the broth makes me wonder how warm it was – and what the bow looked like –
    Hm

    • Thank you so much … I love to put my camera against odd subjects. The broth was steam hot as you can see on the paper and it was very tasty; Consomme de Popillote (Griolle, Asparagus, and Zucchini). One of the best evenings I ever had in a restaurant – the staff was so entertaining and funny. The bow was very crisp. Visited Hong Kong in March and the restaurant are closed, what a pity. The food was superb.

    • Hi there, lovely to see you again. That market was out of this world, you would have loved it .. so much things from the old Russia. Open 365 days.
