2014 November In Pictures

November brought us more beautiful sunny weekends as well as a few more Fridays off for me. And while it seemed that I picked up the camera even less than in October and took even less pictures, I certainly had my fair share of things to do and places to go.

And things to break. I broke three pieces of glass in one week, one by pulling aside the coffee table – the votive candle holder rolled off and left me with shards to hoover up, next I wiped a just emptied glass of milk off the same table in passing, and then I opened a kitchen cupboard and a glass dish that I hadn’t stored properly came falling down – the result looked like I’d dropped  hundreds of diamonds on the floor.

On the positive side, I went to a trade show, went out with friends, stayed with friends in the black forest for a long weekend during which we drove over to France for some serious food shopping. Then just yesterday I went to another cute little town in France with my photography friend E to visit a Christmas market. My picture outcome was pitiful, even though I froze my butt off looking for opportunities.

Add to that an office move including (grown men’s) temper tantrums, restaurant visits, quite a bit of shoe shopping and taking up jogging again, and it was a really eventful month. Now I’m definitely looking forward to December, the season of Glühwein, Christmas markets and holidays.

How was your November?

  1. Lovely food photos and some great ones of the Black Forest! Terrific work! Seems like a full calendar for you! My November was all about work (including travel time close to 75 hours a week). I am broken at this point and photography has to suffer 😉 Only 4 more weeks of work and I have vacation! Good luck surviving december 😉

    Happy Monday!

    • Thank you, Tieme!
      I think at this time of year, sadly, most people have more to do at work and are more rushed to finish their projects by the end of the year. I guess you deserve your Xmas vacation even more then me 🙂 Hope you’ll survive December well, too… Have a good week!

      • Hi Kiki 🙂 Haha we all deserve our rest and vacations 🙂 But you are right, too bad we rush our lives and then we die.. That’s the price of making money I guess..

        Have a great December too and a wonderful Wednesday!

        Cheers,
        Tieme

  2. It looks like a beautiful and fun month! I especially like the photo of the deep, dark forest and the one of the steamy cauldron and hands. What will December bring? Looking forward to seeing!

    • Thank you, Kerry! The deep, dark forest one is one of my favourites, too. I went for a walk with a friend and brought the camera; it got dark really quickly within an hour, and I took lots of pictures not expecting too much, but a lot of them came out really well – some look quite eery, and I was amazed about the quality in the darkening forest as I wasn’t using a flash.

      The steamy cauldron contains mulled wine; the picture was taken in France where I found they like to serve mulled wine straight from the cauldron whereas here they just pull a lever on their container, the lazy way 🙂

    • 🙂 Thank you, Kristen! I took a walk in the same forest 2 days ago after heavy snowfall – that was a completely different view; I’ll be posting that beautiful view here soon.
