Assignment 25

old metal and roses

It is time for the 25th assignment arranged by Scott Thomas, with the title: Your Photography Passion. You are invited to join it, by posting one or perhaps many photos at your own blog, and post a link to them at this page. Deadline is midnight (your time zone), Wednesday, May 22, 2013. Until then I will think of what my photographic passion might be. A closer look at rusty parts from the car, perhaps?

Encouraging collage

Yesterday, while I was making this collage, my Japanese friend Sumire “called” me via Skypechat, writing this short message; “Earthquake.”
Once again everything around her was shaking, – her cat went under the sofa, but she herself kept on chat-writing with me. Skype chat makes it possible to do other things, while waiting for answers, so I used the waiting time to finish the collage and send her a copy, thinking about how different conditions we have to adjust to. There have been many earthquakes around us lately, but the people in New Zealand and Japan seems to have a strong mind and forces to overcome the disaster in a very calm way.  I surely would have been  under the sofa before the cat.
Sumire found that the collage was encouraging, which I was very glad to hear, and it immediately motivated me to post it at my blog. Perhaps encourage others who might need it because of a long winter or a boring day. Or something else, – hopefully less serious than in Japan and New Zealand.
