Looking back: 10th of October

My friend Sunneschii did a blog entry a few days ago (on the 5th) about looking at old photos in her archives on flickr. I really liked the idea and decided to copy it. So for the next few months I want to look back too. And because October is the 10th month, I will start with the 10th of October...

My first photo is from 2006:

These were Y&As dummies. They exchanged them for a toy at the toystore that day and I remember how hard it was for them to fall asleep without them the first night, there were a lot of tears and some swearing too. In the morning they didn't want to go back to exchange their present anymore and by the evening the dummies wrere mostly forgotten. This photo is part of my first year of A Picture a Day, it was day 16.

In 2007 there were a few pictures to choose from... Here is one of them...

Trini and Sandra, two  German women I'd met online via flickr came to Zürich for the day. We took selfies (of course), had a glass of bubbly (broseggo actually ;-) and did some sightseeing. It has been far too long since I've seen these two in real life but thanks to facebook and flickr I still keep up with them.

While there was no photo for 2008, I could choose between a spider and fall in 2009.

You get a leaf, raindrops on a car and a definite feeling of the end of summer and warmth. But the important thing is to see beauty in all seasons!

In 2010 we were on holidays in Engi / GL.

We had a beautiful, surprisingly warm week in the mountains. We stayed in an old farmhouse where we had to cook with wood and fire. In the evenings we huddled around the tile stove, even though it was barely cool enough to light it. We got friends with Idefix, the farmer's dog, who protected us from every stranger that dared to come close.

There are no pictures from 2011 nor 2012, but in 2013 we were on our road trip through Canada and the USA.

Exactly a year ago we climbed Mt. Washington with our rental car. Even though we have lots of mountains in Switzerland it was a fantastic experience to climb that mountain and to see the landscape change with every meter. At the top, we had a fantastic view and we were lucky because there was barely any wind. Looking at these photos makes me want to go on tour again right now!


  1. This is such a good idea! Your pictures of all the October 10ths of years gone by are great ... I especially love the raindrops on the car one. Gorgeous.

    1. Thank you! It was fun to look back and I am looking forward to doing it again soon.

  2. Oh die sind schön! Und auch bei dir, früher gabs eher Bilder... wir sind etwas Foto-faul geworden...

    1. Ich fand es super, so zurück zu blicken und es hat mich sehr motiviert, die ganze Woche Fotos zu machen. Immer jeden Tag kann ich mir im Moment nicht vorstellen, aber ganz verlernen möchte ich es auch nicht!
