HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

I was missing in action for two weeks due to total overwhelm.   This morning I finally tackled all the photos in my phone ….  Sheesh.  Too much!

From back in Israel – one sequence I took because I loved it: a snail in the garden from a widening perspective.

 

Also from Israel – leaving Haifa by train.  The photo isn’t much to look at, but I took ten photos of the same thing over the course of about five minutes.

Those are BANANAS in there, being grown under white shade-cloth.  Thousands of acres of bananas.   It blew my mind.

A week in freezing England, I hardly took photos there.

A skyscraper in London with steam coming out the top:  either it isn’t energy-efficient or else it is thinking too hard.

And my good friend Emma helped me knock an item off my bucket list.

She helped me find the grave of Shoghi Effendi.   A true symbol of triumph over all adversaries.   It does my heart happy to remember being there.

Home to Fiji and a hurricane.  This time last week the power was out.

And then there was New Year’s

Wishing everybody a happy week and a glorious year.

As we say in Fiji, “Vakanuinui vinaka na yabakivou.”

  1. The snail must be very big, as you can even see it from so far away.
    I don’t like taking photos in cold weather either, so I use the time to see what I haven’t published so far.
    A Happy New Year to you as well!
