Happy Holidays!


Yet another year is coming to and end, we have just passed winter solstice and the darkest day in the year – and apparently the darkest in a very, very long. Next time the day will be as dark as this is supposedly in more than 4 billion years. That’s good to know… Anyway, it’s been another very interesting year of blogging. I have got to know new bloggers, kept the relationship with many of my old acquaintances while others have left the blogosphere. That’s the way it goes. I nevertheless appreciate the contact with all of you. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Don’t forget to captured the holiday with your cameras! Now I look forward to having a few days of holiday only to be spent with my family.

    Best Wishes for the Holiday Season to you and your Family too, Otto. May 2015 be a Good Year filled with lots of “Shooting” and “Sharing”.

    Your photograph is a reminder of my own family. My paternal grandparents came from Sweden, sailing from Gävle on the same ship in the early 1900s. They met later, in Minneapolis, then married and moved to Iowa. I still have their pair of traditional candle holders, which my father remembered from his childhood. I don’t know, but like to think they might have been one reminder of home that my grandmother tucked into her bag before leaving the Old Country.

    Enjoy this time of making memories with your own family, and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours.

    Otto! Wishing you a wonderful 2015. I am so looking forward to see what you write and photograph in this coming year. And I thank you so much for your post — I had no idea that this solstice was so dark. It fits well with the year I’ve had. Now I want to research what you said and find out why! I have felt much relief to know that light days are once again on their way — and to hear they’ll last for 4 billion years is terrific! This year is starting off to be wonderful. I can feel the good spirits in your post as well. Cheers for a great New Year!

  57. Candace says:

    Wishing you a healthy, happy 2015, Otto, filled with wonderful photo opportunities.
