Theme Day: Best photo of the year 2008


Happy New Year everyone and thank you for all your visits and comments in 2008!

It's so hard to pick a photo to be the best of a whole year, but we chose this picture from Ystad Daily Photo. It's a beautiful motive which reminds us of the spring that we long for. The road reminds us of what lies ahead of us; which we do not yet know what is. The poem that Fredrik added beneath the photo is a lovely one which we think is such a fitting way to welcome the new year.

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
