La Paloma ohe

Wikipedia says: “"La Paloma" is a popular song, having been produced and reinterpreted in diverse cultures, settings, arrangements, and recordings over the last 140 years.”
Having grown up near Hamburg, Germany, with it huge port and seafaring history La Paloma is a sea shanty that I have been humming ever since I was a kid.

It has been stuck in my head for two day now due to a recent sailing trip. I have to say there are worse songs that can get stuck in your head.

forest nymph

There is a forest nymph
A tannic, secret child
Crowned in white and dancing
Can dance the trees a smile.

Lukas - You Rock!

Lukas you rock!

I really enjoyed the day at the beach with you, and I am absolutely thrilled that I did not use a regular camera to capture the magic of the day, but instead grabbed 'my old toy camera' that shoots medium format film. Yes, FILM!

Today my fingers are smelly of good old fashion chemicals, and I am in love with the mementos they gave me.

Viva Barcelona - Viva Vicky & Ed

We're back from Barcelona.
Actually, we have been back for a while, but I am still trying to catch up with all the photos I brought back.

Most importantly with the pictures of Vicky & Edward's Wedding in the beautiful mountain setting in Montseny near Barcelona.

Congratulation again.

... and while you two enjoy being married, I will work frantically on your wedding album, which will be the best I ever made.
