Picture Friday! – View From Above

New York seen from the sky

New York seen from the sky

Just in time for another Picture Friday!

This time a picture that shows the beautiful city of New York from a helicopter. It was a thrill to see the city like this. We were also very lucky, since we arrived early at the heli platform we were able to get on board with a more exclusive flight at no extra charge.

I tried to follow all the safety instructions, but just seconds before the helicopter took off, I manged to unmount my seatbelt (several actually at the same time with a simple twist… Houdini would’ve been so proud of me) and in a few very scary seconds I was able to connect them together again, just in time… barely… before we went airborne. Just like posting this picture before it becomes Saturday. Just in time. πŸ˜‰

Have a great weekend!

Autumn Pictures

Last week I went to a nearby forest to take a few pictures, which would hopefully sent across the “autumn vibe”. πŸ™‚
Even though I don’t like posting anything without a lot of accompanying words, these pictures are quite self explanatory. There’s really no need to bury you in an avalanche of words to describe them to you, so here are the pictures without further ado!

“20 Things to Remember If You Love a Person with ADD”

Even though this is about ADD, I’m sure it will also apply to lot’s of people on the autism spectrum as well (or people close to it). There’s a big overlap between ADHD/ADD and autism so you will probably be able to relate to most of these things as well. I thought it was worth a share. πŸ™‚ Continue reading

The Eagle Has Landed

Or actually the book has landed!

As I wrote earlier on my blog, one of my illustrations (3D graphic) was going to be published in a new book from Tony Attwood, Craig R. Evans and Anita Lesko and just a few hours after finding it on Amazon and downloading it as an E-book, the printed version of the book arrived from the publisher in London. Halfway in the book you’ll find a collection of illustrations, all nicely printed on glossy paper, which is a really nice touch. I’m planning on keeping the book in unread condition and start reading it on my Kindle. πŸ˜‰

The printed version hasn’t been released in the USA yet (except for the E-book version), but it’s already available in the UK. The book is chock full of stories and advice and I’m looking forward to reading it!

Spring is here!

Uh no wait… this picture is getting me all confused! It’s still winter for a few more weeks, but it sure didn’t feel that way when I saw this last Wednesday when I was visiting the little town of Bergen.

I knew a TV show would be there to shoot a DIY “On Tour” special and since it was such a nice day, I decided to go and have a look. They were filming in front of this ruin church and I noticed the field in front of it was covered in flowers. I know we broke a few records this winter, but apparently nature jumped right in and decided to start spring early this year and join the party. πŸ™‚

Here are some of the other pictures I took during my short visit.

Shopping like a pro!

As some of you might know, I had to start from point zero in the whole analog shopping scene and I thought it would be nice to give you an update with how things are going now. πŸ™‚ The picture above is from this afternoon when I went to get some groceries. Not because it was really necessary, but more to keep motivating myself to get out and do this sort of thing. Today I didn’t feel so great, which made this a good experiment to go anyway and see how that would go! Long story short (’cause why not?) it went okay. Not great, but good enough. I didn’t forget to pay, scanned all products (so it is still a bit techie… I like!) and I didn’t forget any of the products I wrote down beforehand.

New graphic

I was feeling creative today and decided to do some digital doodling in 3D and the above image is the result of that. I’m also using it as the main image for this site now, since the other graphic has been up there long enough.

So what is it, what does it represent? Nothing! πŸ™‚ It’s just a bunch of orange colored glass cubes with lots of reflections. And that’s also going to be the title of this graphic: “Just-a-Bunch-Of-Orange-Colored-Glass-Cubes-With-Lots-Of-Reflections”. I think it sounds very catching! πŸ˜‰
