A youngster Redtail spend some time in the garden yesterday, while his/her parents were busy getting the food ready. Gave me the opportunity to get some nice closeup shots like this one

22: Alien World

10 Comments

Alien World

There are aliens among us
You may not recognize them
But they know who you are
They dwell in our dreams
And roam the streets at night

There are aliens among us
Are they peaceful
Or are they a threat?
Who can tell what they’re up to
If we don’t know who they are?

Perhaps I dream too much
Let my fantasies run wild
But I’m sure there are aliens
Cause i surely saw them
While i was lying in my bed

When I come to think about it
The aliens looked so familiar
Almost like a human being
They even have the same eyes
And spoke in plain English

These aliens among us
Creatures of doom and delight
Only seem to visit me at night
I’m now beginning to question
Was I really in our world?

The home of Nikola Tesla

2 Comments

The great inventor Nikola Tesla was born in present day Croatia in the town of Smiljan. His father was a priest for the local church. This church was rebuild and the family house stands there too. In front of both buildings is a statue of the inventor. Really a wonderful museum to visit, with lots of nice quotes by Tesla and some of the early inventions. The documentary on Nikola Tesla was both fascinating and alienating, as it showed some of the strange visionary flashes of light from which Nikola Tesla was suffering. He eventually learned to live with them. If you happen to be close by, please consider visiting this small museum. So many of his inventions have found their way into our homes. Why not visit the home where it all started? 🙂

This is part of the skyline of the city of Deventer in the east of the Netherlands. I’ll be working here starting next wednesday. Lovely city and a nice skyline. I’ll surely photograph this skyline more often in the coming months 🙂
