a photo a week challenge: squares and circles

This challenge I have missed …. thought I was up to date, but so wasn’t the case, so I have some catching up to do. *smile

Squares and circles …. not easy to find in my existence or image files … maybe it because I’m far from being neither of it when it comes to my personality, even if I’m what you can call a “round” person when it comes to my shapes. Had to dig deep.  I’m one of them that is all over the place.

“With enough coffee, I can dress myself
and use my grown-up manners”

Squares????!!! Just an image of a coffee stand along ul. Jozefa Dietla in Kraków – I was out walking on Christmas Eve, it was cold, grey and wet …. and I was desperate for a cup of coffee, but every cafe was closed and so was this coffee stand (hut) – December 2017

“Life is great. Cheese makes it better.”
Avery Aames

The Old Amsterdam Cheese Store at Damrak 62 is a MUST when visiting Amsterdam. This  is Gouda Cheeses. I’m a big cheese lover … and I eat far too much of it, but can’t help myself – April 2017

“Life is one big road with lots of signs.”
Bob Marley

One of Madrid’s beautiful street signs … all the street signs are all individual … not one the same … this was the sign sitting on the Opera, Teatro Real – September 2016

“As one who would rather light a candle
than curse the darkness.”
Richard Paul Evans

The table candle holder at one of my favourite restaurants in Porto … that is located in the magnificent Palácio da Bolsa, Had a fantastic dining adventure and it was there I was introduced to my favourite cocktail those days, Porto Splash (white port & tonic with loads of ice and lemon peel – far from square that drink *laughing). – June 2017

“Only the pure of heart can make good soup”
Beethoven

This with the Beethoven quote .. gives me the chance to use one of his many beautiful piano sonatas as music cloud. This is Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13 – “Adagio Cantabile – Sonata Pathétique”. This was used in episode 9 of the TV series, Hannibal – with my favourite Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal.

  1. Lol at the intro to this post…you do have a unique personality and who cares what shape you are. You are you 🙂 Brilliant photos, Vivi. Really like the close up of the cheese one. I also like cheese, especially the soft kind like brie or Camembert 🙂

    • Mabel, thanks for your lovely words. You’re so right … I’m not bother about my shape anymore … have accepted it, because I can’t afford a new wardrobe. *laughing. I love melted Brie or Camembert with nice jam and vanillia ice cream. Yummy. I’m more of a hard cheese girl. *smile

  2. 🙂 I would have not been a happy bunny if I’d come to the coffee shop and it was closed… But I like the picture!
    Have a very HAPPY weekend. I think I have to grab an ice cream now.
    Many hugs, dear Wivi xoxoxo 🙂

    • Dia, it wasn’t only one … it was all. Christmas Eve!!! Only the liquor stores was open????? Have done my EU voting now. Very mixed weather and more autumn than spring for the moment. I think I will do the same … grab a Magnum. SundayHug

  3. I played this Beethoven piece for my audition to the Music Department’s Piano Performance program at the University of Utah. I’ve had a couple of students learn it since then. I love this piece.

    • Nancy, Wow … I was playing piano too when I was young, but not on your level at all. I don’t think I played a classical piece, never came that far. Beethoven were the master of the piano. Hard to understand that a man that was nearly totally deaf could create music like this.
