Hello everybody on a sunny, cold winter afternoon,

I am sorry to have been away once again from the site, but things kept me busy.
Tomorrow I am taking my brother to the clinic again, he needs another surgery, now on the right side of his neck. He's going to be under the knife on Wednesday.
If everything goes well, I can take him home next Monday and hopefully there will be no more trouble.

It is still very cold here and we have some snow. Hope you agree with me - winter can be very beautiful.

If possible, I'll drop in and have a look at your work.
Have a good week,
Johanna

Nice natural pattern repeats in V1. I like V3 too - the long shadows come over better in the portrait frame.

Johanna, I especially like the first image because of the near abstract feel (the others are great too). I do hope that all goes well for your brother - you and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Having been "on the tiles" a few times, I kinda recognise the pattern Johanna, and very pretty it is too. My best wishes to your brother and to you and your family of course. There always seems to be something about for us to worry about.

Nice images and you didn't have to go too far either.
