Travel theme – Autumn

Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower. – Albert Camus

I can so relate to this quote on Ailsa’s blog as Autumn is something not seen in my part of the world, unless you head much further south. Summer drags on to a milder summer, there is a slight lowering of humidity and then hey presto: it is Spring or early summer again. First world problems…..

Late Autumn in Denmark – a photograph I never tire of, the hues of the leaves are so true, so rich in their earthy tones, so dark and dusty, the reds yellows and orange-browns….

Travel theme: Sculpture

Sculpture is the word from Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack for this week’s travel theme.

Are you joining in?

Here is my contributions:Image

The above photo is a sculpture in Christchurch, New Zealand honouring those that died in the 9/11 disaster at the World Trade Centre in America. Little did I know that 2 weeks after taking this photo, they were to have their own disaster in the form of a devastating earthquake in an otherwise relatively earthquake free zone. But, it is New Zealand, and this is a risk.

But the piece de resistance has to be from Vigeland Sculpture Park in Majorstuen, Oslo
