It’s been a while and I apologize for lack of posts in this Blog. It’s been a busy, horribly busy year for me. But anyway, this Christmas break I have the chance to sit down and reflect and write once again. So many things had happened for the past months and I guess I just need to move on. Thank you for those who continue to comment, write and visit my Blog. Hopefully I could personally catch up on all my followers and readers!
How are you guys doing? I hope that everyone is doing well and had a wonderful holidays with your love ones.
For those who celebrates Christmas —Merry Christmas and as Germans say “Einen guten Rutsch “ or a wish for a great slide in the coming New Year!This is one of the great things that I did this year—to learn and speak German!
But the Dutch and Germans do it well since they have the second day of Christmas ( Boxing Day) that is December 26 to celebrate. What’s not to love about this extra day of holiday but to eat more, drink more and be merry?!
How did you guys kept yourselves busy this holiday season? As for me, here’s another sequel for my collection of Manholes—also known as drain covers!
If you read my post about “The beauty of Manholes“then you must know my fascination for water drainage. I have this thing for looking down and set a goal to collect different images of manholes in different places and as I find it very interesting, Germany is a great place to start. These images showed uniqueness of each place and area. Some are really distinctly creative, some are just plainly functional. But I tell you, for me, It is always great to look down into something nice, whether its covered with snow, dirt, or leaves, mud or wet with rain.It adds a sentiment while walking on cobbled streets. For these second part of my series, I want to thank my father-in-law for capturing all the new manholes.
Soon it will be another year, how time flies. A brand new year for all of us to start new beginnings. Have you already thought about what do you want to accomplish in 2019?
What about starting a “Looking down series“?
I know its human nature to look up. Gazing up on a tall building, or on a clear blue skies is something that we all do especially when we are “visitors”in a foreign land. It only takes a few seconds to look up and appreciate all the new and beautiful things that surrounds us.Same goes with looking down. You see shadow paths from yesterday, footprints and marks that tells a million stories.
Do you also have a habit of looking down while walking?
How does the manholes in your area looks like?
Want to participate in my global project?
If you ever seen an interesting Manhole in your area, please feel free to send me a photo of it or a link so I can include it here in my list.
My goal is to collect as many as possible depending where my path leads me to.
Send me some photos in : firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you find my story interesting and something to ponder about. Over here in Bavaria in Germany, sending you the best wishes for the coming Silvester and New Year!
Happy New Year to all!
Wishing you all a happy weekend…Tschüss!
