November is not the most photogenic of months in our climate, and so a good time to go back through the year and see what photos I can find that I haven’t already shared. This sculpture has been around for over 50 years and was not included in the summer’s sculpture festival.

From the first snowfall of the year, 22 October.
It started snowing on Thursday night. By Saturday afternoon, it was all gone again.
The pictures taken on Friday by noon. A very short, slow and “careful” walk…
See more Monday Mosaics at Mary’s Little Red House.

The snow is gone and it’s raining, so I’m going back into my archives… Don’t think I’ve shared this photo, it’s another one from two weeks ago. See that silhouette of a chair, in the middle of the picture? If you go back to my post from 11 October there’s a picture of it in the collage.
I really should come up with some kind of system what pictures I have already shared. After 1½ years of photo frenzy and blogging and my memory is beginning to fail me ;) …

Looking at the view above it is perhaps not quite easy to determine the perspective, so let’s step back a little bit:
We’re on top of a hill, and that stone wall surrounds the dam above an artificial waterfall:

I know I’ve published photos of this sculpture before, but here he is again, in a particularly reflective mood on a still October day. His name is Bodhi and he was made in the image of his Creator; something which might be worth while to reflect upon every now and then.
On the building behind him you can see a little windmill decoration. “Röda Kvarn” [Red Mill] is an old cinema building, which is still in use, now owned by the town. Their ambition is to show quality films; old classics or films which the commercial cinemas don’t find profitable enough.
There are and were “Röda Kvarn” cinemas in a lot of Swedish towns. I don’t know if they were originally one special chain of cinemas; they don’t seem to be now. I guess originally the name was borrowed from the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris.

Spotted a little green alien struggling along up the trunk of a birch tree… He was about 5 mm, I think. The first picture is enlarged from the second. The third is the same tree – I liked the light and the shadows. The forth picture, below, is a different birch tree – included just to give you a better sense of what the little creature was up against…
