Historic Wendover Airfield
I bought a new lens for my Nikon camera, a 50mm 1.8g and it is simply fantastic. I just had to play with it on board this old plane:

September 29, 2013 - Mormon Tabernacle Choir at the Tabernacle, Salt Lake City

On my things-to-do-list while in the Salt Lake City area was a visit to a rehearsal of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the Tabernacle Hall. The rehearsals take place on thursdays, and while there, we were invited to visit a recording of the Tabernacle Choir on Sunday that would be broadcasted later on. I just found the video on youtube which gives you an impression of the choir.

Park City: Terzian Galleries & Adam Thomas Rees Sculptures



This was on my "things-to-do-list", a drive to Park City to visit the Terzian Galleries . They sell polymer clay sculptures made by Adam Thomas Rees, one of my favourite polymer clay artists. His work is amazing!! I wish I could afford a piece, he's not asking too much considering the work done, but it's not in my budget yet. I'll keep saving.....

Day Of My Life - In the Air with the HB-RSC Super Constellation!

I've been waiting for this day for a long, long time. Rather unexpected, on September 1st 2013, it was my turn:


what a beauty (I mean the airplane)

Flying aboard this beautiful plane is indescribable. This is something you have to experience yourself. I will just post a few pictures here. Become a member of the Super Constellation Flyers Association and be privileged to fly aboard the "Connie".

I did. 

And I had the day of my life.......















such a pretty smile!




happy smile
