After being out at 5 AM yesterday photographing and seeing that lovely morning light in my photos, I wanted to do it again–but this time, walking a little bit to photograph other things. So I set the alarm for 04.35. Five minutes before the alarm went off, I woke up all by myself. My head was not with me, still sleeping. When I peeked through the curtains and didn’t see any sun, I instantly thought it was cloudy and I didn’t want to photograph if there wasn’t any beautiful light outside. So I rolled over and fell back to sleep.
My three-week vacation started on friday. After spending yesterday at a pool with my sister and her family and having dinner at their place, I went home to my parents place. They are on holiday (in Nice, France) and I needed to take care of Samson (our cat) for a few days. My uncle did it until I came home. I woke up twice last night. First at 04.00 because Samson was sitting outside my bedroom door screaming–he wanted to get out. After letting him out, I went back to bed and fell asleep instantly. Almost an hour later I woke up again. I have a mild form of restless legs syndrome. It is a neurological disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to move one’s body to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations. Mostly it occurs in my legs, but sometimes my arms is affected. That happened yesterday. To make it go away, I need to focus my brain on other things than the restless arms. Doing things with your arms helps.
I have some more polas to share. These are taken at Lierfoss, where I grew up.
The three last polas are of my newphews. We, my sister and her familiy and I, were at Lierfoss one sunday barbequeing and having a lovely day. It was sunny and very warm. Emil, the oldest newphew, showed me how to ride a bike and more important; how to use the brakes on the bike–he had just learned how to do it. Great memories.
Here are some polaroids taken this spring / summer. The three first are from the Botanical Garden (inside and outside). The two next is from a bike trip I had back in May. The two last is from the street where I live. More polas to come soon.
