    Hei Ida

    Takker så mye for det. #44 var et av de største høydepunktene i 2010, og jeg blir nok nødt til å dra tilbake igjen til Rwanda…

    Takker for din tilbakemelding!

    Se og lær! Jeg kjenner igjen en del av bildene fra fotomessen på Lillestrøm. Jeg har valgt meg ut disse 3 – av ulike grunner:
    Nr. 12. Jeg skvatt da jeg så dette bildet på Lillestrøm. Snakker om å " ta det på kornet".
    Nr. 24: Drama i isødet som påminnelse om at livet i naturen ikke alltid er noen dans på roser
    Nr. 32: "Less is more" – dette må det være mulig å nyte uten å tro at dette er det siste isfjellet som slukker lyset når det drar..
