Hope you all enjoyed your holidays and were able to spend quality time with friends and family. I had a quiet couple of days here, with lots of reading, some binge-watching of old Agatha Christie films and some walks through the crisp air. We had sunny days here, and yesterday I visited my friend N - who cooked a magnificent meal, very yummy. She lives on the other side of the river and town, so I took the tram into the town-centre of Düsseldorf, and then did my favourite walk across the bridge, past the Altstadt, and enjoyed myself immensely.
Today I am re-sharing some older mixed media pieces with the theme light and darkness, which I find very appropriate for this time of the year. I am linking to Paint Party Friday:
Perhaps it was being born on the winter solstice that always made me very conscious of the light/darkness theme. As a child, I was convinced that I had less birthday than others because it was the shortest day of the year! And I am still obsessed with the theme, so here some more photos of the moon taken in the past few days. The first photos were taken on Thursday evening, and the moon looks dark and mysterious :
This was Christmas Eve:
And this was Christmas day - I love to see the moon waxing or waning, as here:
And last but not least, a few of the photos taken whilst crossing the bridge yesterday:
So, if you're still awake after all that, well done! I know I am rather crazy about the sun and the moon, the word 'lunatic' comes to mind....But I don't mind having a screw loose, as long as it's not in one of my cameras, coffee-makers or my sewing machine!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
