Joining in with Kat Sloma's Photo Heart Connection - do go and check out the others over on her website
My husband is half Norwegian and has many relations living in Norway. One of these, his cousin Helga, was over for a conference and asked if she could visit us for the weekend. Of course we were delighted to see her, but unfortunately the weekend she was coming coincided with a two day photography course in London that Brian had given me for my birthday.
On the Saturday I headed off to London early, leaving the family to have a celebratory breakfast as it was 17th May , Norwegian National Day, which is a very big deal in Norway but not usually much celebrated in England. Busy on the course I didn't think much more about it until the afternoon when we had to go out and shoot in the streets around the studio where the training was, imagine my surprise and delight when I found this.
A Norwegian deli with these wonderful celebration cakes complete with flag! it really connected me to the celebrations happening and home in my absence and with friends and family in Norway - made my day!
