Mundane Monday Challenge #136: Late Afternoon Sun

Sunlight 18.11 (4)

I was sitting at the computer on the Eastside of the appartment at about 4.00 p.m. and was suddenly attracted by the reflection of the sun in the window of the opposite house. What do you do? You take a photo, or 2 or 3 and choose the best. I liked this one as it kept the darkness of the sky and our 3 year old magpie nest could be seen in the opposite tree. I do not know if it is still used, but no-one will remove it – you never know.

Mundane Monday Challenge #135: Crows and Clouds

Crows in flight 13.11 (2)

Mr. Swiss called to say to see the evening sky this evening. As I am a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society, I decided it would be worth a few shots. What happened next surprised me. A flock of crows took flight as I was shooting a photo. What could be better: a wonderful evening sky with bird accompaniment.

Mundane Monday Challenge #134: Mundane Still Life

Mouli 02.110 (1)

I get weird inspirations sometimes. We like mooli, at least I think that is one of the names, another would be Daikon and is a white raddish. We often serve it with cold cuts for the evening food – more like tea than a meal. Mr. Swiss brought this mega mooli home after a shopping trip and I just had to take a photo of this record breaking vegetable. I happened to have the glass ceramic tops to my stove on the table and found they made a good background. I know, you can’t get more mundane, or even more weird with such funny ideas. And I did like the colour contrasts. 🙂

Mundane Monday Challenge #131: A mundane Monday visit to the Supermarket

Road to Langendorf 16.10 (4)

Nothing special, just another trip to the supermarket on Monday, putting the car in the parking space, although this time was special. We parked on the top floor, there is only one extra floor. Either you are on ground level or up above. Up above makes it easier to walk to the entrance and you get a better view from the top, although I just took a photo of the others parked next to us. We even have a roof to protect us if it rains.

Mundane Monday #130: Two Cranes and the Alps

Road to Langendorf 04.10 (12)

It all began with demolishing apparment houses to make room for something  bigger and better. In the 1950’s Mr. Swiss, my husband, actually lived in the blocks of appartments that no longer exists, with his mother. A jump forward in time and now the appartments are no longer there.

The cranes have moved in. First of all just one crane, but it has now been joined by a second crane. We pass the cranes three times in the week on the way to the village where we shop in the supermarket.

I am constantly taking photos of the cranes, something completely different. However on this day, somthing special happened. The Swiss Alps, Bernese Overland, showed themselves. The light was right and so I got a two(three) for the price of one: the Alps and two cranes.
