lens artists photo challenge #49; favorite things

Favourites??????!!!  I would call it passions.

“Just go. It’s bad manners to keep your passport waiting.”

My passport …. that has taken me to the most fantastic places, given me magical adventures, great experiences and awesome meetings.

“I take the picture twice.
First with my heart then camera.”
Biju Karakkonam

Oscar, my beloved camera (The PowerShot SX50 HS) – that has been in my life since 2014 and we have a great relationship, we love the most objects, but we don’t always agree.

“Ice cream cravings are not to be taken lightly.
Betsy Cañas Garmon

Ice cream … any time, any place … any day. 

‘To wear dreams on one’s feet is to begin
to give a reality to one’s dreams.’
Roger Vivier

Shoes … shoes and more shoes. Not that I’m able to spend a day in this pair … but they will always be my favourite. Are suffering from Polyneuropathy since 10 years back now and it isn’t getting any better. Every day now it means that all shoes mean discomfort and gives pain, but some less than others. I wish I had wings, I really do.  I hope I will be able to wear this pair again one evening. I guess I have about 70 pairs of shoes.

‘I’ve got two places I like to be.
Portugal is one.”
Cliff Richard

Porto, thanks to my blogging sister and good friend Suzanne@the travelbunny that wrote about her visit to this fabulous city in 2016. When I read her post I just knew that Porto I just had to visit, so I visited a year later and this September will be my 3rd visit. Just love everything about it. It was more or less love at first sight.

“Flowers don’t tell, they show.”
Stephanie Skeem

Flowers …. flowers … flowers. Do I need to say more?
Peonies are one of my favourites, bring them on so long I’m around.

“Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk.
That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”
Ernest Hemingway

Mojito!!!!!! The last day of summer in Sopot, Poland – September 2018

“I thought without a doubt I would be a fisherman.”
Michael Buble

And of course the music … Michael Bublé (one of my 10 top favourites) at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm – February 2014

  1. Beautiful quotes and collection, Viveka! I love your red shoes and hope you can wear them soon. And I totally agree with your quote about ice cream. 🙂

    • Yes, wouldn’t it!!! I saw him alive for the first time in NY many many years ago … in the beginning of his career. I didn’t have clue who he were. I know now. *smile – Just love his voice. Love back!

  2. These are wonderful Viveka – that quote with the camera is one I haven’t seen before – terrific!! Haven’t been to Porto yet but top of the bucket list!!

    • Amy, thank you so much … I probably could have posted another favorite things. I love the shoes too, but I’m struggling with them those days.

    • My pleasure and thanks for our support. I have said for years that every woman should have a pair of red high heels in her wardrobe. I’m thinking of putting them on display in my bookshelves.
