Snorkeling

We haven’t had the best weather here in Levanger this summer, but we’ve had some nice breaks in between the rain. We finally got our snorkeling gear out for the first time this summer.

I’ve always been fascinated by the world which opens up when you get underneath the surface. Also, being in the water, allows me to get a lot closer to the Haematopus ostralegus, which I captured above.

                 

 

But now, let’s move below the surface. Here is a Pagurus bernhardus:

 

 

and a Carcinus maenas:

And then some nice scenery:

 

 

All photos taken with Olympus Mju Tough-6020. The camera has extremely slow shutter action compared to my Sony Alpha DSLR, so I just have to be patient.

But still I’m pretty happy with the quality of these photos.

 

The Japanese chef

In May my son graduated from CLU, and his girlfriend threw a surprise party at Cho Cho San in Thousand Oaks, CA.

All the food was prepared right at our table, by a fantastic chef. He was so amazing that I forgot to start eating, and just had to try to capture more of his “show”, as you can see from the photos below.

Here he is juggling with the sharp knives. (I counted his fingers before I started eating :-))

Then he started throwing food around, for the guests to catch with their mouth

And of course you have to play with your food… See the cute eyes and ears?

Then he built a small tower of onion rings, filled it with oil, and set fire to it:
        

Great fun and great food 🙂

Thanks Cho Cho San.

Sunset

It’s amazing how different the sky is every night.
