Shibuya Crossing

When I first read about Shibuya Crossing I really couldn’t imagine how it would be to take a walk across the famous intersection outside Shibuya Station. It is unbelievable when you come there and have a look at the crowd of shoppers, commuters, young and older people. It is really fascinating when all the lights turn red at this busy junction at the same time in every direction. Traffic stops completely and the street is full of pedestrians. Really amazing!

Dear followers and visitors of my blog,

I never thought that there will be people who are interested in my poems, stories or photographs. But your support showed me that there are many people who do appreciate my work, stop by for a while, comment on my pictures and writings. Some stay and follow and some come along with me just for a short while.
Hence it is time to thank you all from the bottom of my heart, every one of you makes me feel happy  and smile.


Big hugs, Alexandra

I really love this weeks fun challenge because there are so many things that can make me happy. Some I can’t catch with my camera like my husbands and my familys love, the happiness that we’re healthy and everything’s going well but others I can, so have a look at… my cats, shopping on a lazy morning, some sweets or frozen yoghurt or ice cream, the lush greenery in Singapore, the sea and the beach, handbags and shoes, angels, elephants, my balcony, a cocktail or coffee with friends, Korean BBQ and Kimchi, Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay, petits fours, sunset, my bird-of-paradise flower, small markets and fresh fruits,  the Thenthousandangels Cafe, my job, Christmas and decorations, and many, many other things.
