One Word Photo Challenge: Linoleum

London 2015

Did you know that linoleum practically no longer exists? In Switzerland everyone has tiled or wooden flooring, but no linoleum. Otherwise you find fitted carpet everywhere. I I decided to search in my England photos, as in England you basically find either linoleum or fitted carpets in the council houses. I eventually found linoleum in my dad’s extra care home. He had fitted carpet in his private appartment, but in the communal room where the golde oldies all met for a lotto game or otherwise special events, there was linoleum.

My dad is sitting in the middle talking to the lady who is standing. It was at the time when Queen Elizabeth was celebrating something british and so it was all decorated with the british flags. I think it was after a lotto match where they were serving tea and cake and dad had celebrated his 100th birthday in that week. That was why I was there to help him celebrate.

One Word Photo Challenge: Landscape

M - Rumisberg

I live in landscape, but landscape is not always landscape. You have to avoid the buildings that are being planted in places that really belong to the trees and the cows, but there are still some places left. We visited the village of Rumisberg. It is not so far, but combined with an ascent to the village on a one track road where you hope that a tractor does not meet you on the way it can take a while. It was worth it eventually with the view across the fields to the distant mountain peak of the Jura. Even the sky decided to show itself from its dramatic perspective.
