He opened the door and a woman stood there on the porch with anxious eyes.

May I help you? Says the man.

Oh… I just want to see Eric.

Eric? There is no Eric in here

No Eric… ? Are you sure? Damn…

Of course I am…

She said nothingmore, took twosteps back and, just before he closed the door, heseenthe depthof the inevitability in her face.

There was nothing to add. Nothing more to say. She had alreadythought ofthis possibility but wouldn’t believe it. What shefearedthe most in the last 6 yearswas nowa reality….

Walnuts, also called “wet sheet”, are the edible nuts of the tree ‘Juglans regia’. There are many different types, of which the English walnut and the American Black walnut is the best known. The nuts of all the species are edible, and they add a flavorful crunch to dishes. The nodes consist of two partially sticking together, brain-shaped halves off-white in color, and covered with a thin, light brown membrane. Fresh walnuts dry quickly and have only a short shelf life, so they are best bought in shell, or dried. After the cracking and peeling the somewhat bitter brown membranes must be removed off the fresh nodes. The white flesh of the fresh nuts has a soft, slightly sweet flavor and is considered by enthusiasts as a delicacy.

The ReaderThe title should read “Never think you are finished for the day.”

The picture above, “The Reader” is an example of that. I’d spent the morning taking pictures while on a visit to the city of Bergen here in Norway. The weather was cloudy and it was raining, which will come as no surprise to people that live in Norway.

I’d kind of given up for the day after taking some lackluster shots while walking the streets. I was looking forward to lunch. We ended up at a restaurant famous for its Fish soup. While waiting for our order (It was lunchtime and the place was busy) I noticed a lady sitting by the window reading. The light was perfect. I slowly raised my Leica MP and shot off a couple of frames of Ilford XP2 between the shoulders of my friends sitting opposite me.

The result…well you can judge for yourselves.

So…

I Swear…..

I’d just returned home from my trip to Kentucky, and had spent the previous 3 hours riding in the rain.  The light, and the shadows, and the raindrops on the windshield, stopped me in my (very wet, dripping )tracks.  My bike was dripping, too,  but it had brought me home safely and that, my friends, is all that really matters.

Come on over to Life on the Bike and Other Fab Things to see more images from my adventures on, and off, the bike.  Please check out the blogs of my fellow contributors to Monochromia, too!

 A very hot day in South France / 1995, Kiki was refreshing herself in the garden.
Pictures were taken with a Nikon 801 / analog –  pure chance pictures,
because I had just arrived that moment with the camera in my hand.
