Winter Color

A friend at work celebrates Epiphany and Russian Christmas on January 6th and 7th, so when I noticed this colorful store, bright against the blue sky with its Christmas display I thought I'd post the shot. Steffe in Haninge, Sweden dropped me a note to say he owns the candle set you see at center. But this store is not in Sweden. It is in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, famous for its pride in Nordic heritage. The store specializes in goods and foods from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland, thus the display of flags from those countries. Truth be told, I'm saving up all the sunlight and color I can to get me through the abundant January gray sky moments. So enjoy the color, sunlight and shadows :-).

My mom is Serbian Orthodox and we celebrated Christmas again on Saturday. Fantastic color in this shot.
I wish you and yours a very happy 2012. May all your resolutions come true...since I am always late, I should have mine figured out by the Orthodox New Year. :)

Word Verif: redstor (I am not making it up!)
