This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “resilient”.

As long as the sun exists and the earth rotates, the weather changings will endure! Weather, like the sun, was, is and will be!

Happy new Year!

 

Take care have a great weekend!

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “path”.

The word ‘path’ can describe a real path you can walk on. But, in today’s context the path of life is meant. Your life, my life. Lock back to the stations of this year. Consider each station as a single footprint on your path from birth to death.

We finish this year in a few days. I’ll do a review post here as usual. but not today 🙂

Take care!

 

Take care have a great weekend!

Visiting the craftsmen in their workshops

610_8291_wDuring my latest trip, I also visited a few wood-carver workshops and manufacturer production halls as well as their showrooms or shops.

It’s so amazing, what fantastic and filigree things these people are able to create from wood.

I really recommend, visiting the open workshops or the craftsmen in their workshops to look, how they create their products. Then you’ll understand why the prices are so high. Everything is hand-made. Even the manufactories have a high percentage of hand-made tasks. And it’s stunning to see their artistry. In Seiffen you can find at least two big manufactories with enough room for a group of visitors. The craftsmen’s workshops are tiny and don’t have room for more than one or two visitors. The young lady in the image above shows her skills on the Christmas market in Anaberg-Buchholz. Some more images are in the gallery below.

Enjoy and have a peaceful Advent time.
