Easter Blur


Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur

Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating. And to all of you who are not. 😉

I was raised very religiously. Catholic. Easter is now a holiday when we eat a lot of traditional food made for this occasion. Easter then was a sequel to many visits to the church, holy sacraments and thinking about suffering, sacrifice, love, loss, forgiveness.

I am thinking a lot lately about my childhood. I’m going back in my mind to places and situations that defined me and defined some of the challenges I am facing today. I’m going back in order to go forward. I think I’m at a crossroad, many of which we encounter. Is it a crossroad if there is no more roads than one? I still feel like things are changing and about to change. And I welcome the change. It was long waited. 🙂

This is my 365th post. Wow. Never thought there would be this many…


And the next second the moment was gone | Ephemeral


And the next second the Sun was behind the horizon.


Balloon is filled with a bit of helium. Cat is confused. 😀 (On the balloon it says “Happy Birthday”)

IMG_0358It looked like a storm is coming but the clouds just passed through. (My favorite thing in this photo is the nest you can see in the branches of a tree. Spring is coming and the birds are coming back. Taken today.)


And finally, my photo of the eclipse taken on a home-made projector from paper. I eliminated light sources in the photo. This, ladies and gentleman is the Solar eclipse of 2015. 😉

Where are my glasses?

This is from Marilyn’s post, but it could oh so easily be mine. 🙂

I lost my prescription sunglasses during the wild and crazy weeks of October 2014 during which we were on the road most of the time. I don’t know precisely when they vanished or where.

OK, I took third and fourth sentence but I felt it needed some explanation. I don’t feel the need to include this in my post, since every half an hour my sentence in real life is “Where are my glasses?”

I am a member of “I lose my glasses AT LEAST three times a day” group on Facebook, it is THAT serious. And, in fact I don’t have them on right now. Where are they?

Just a sec…

Found them. On a table. Three rooms away.

So, If by any chance I end up on a road for some time, this sentence could became mine.

Also, I found incredible page with stunning photos every day which have provided my curious mind with incredible photos of a Solar Eclipse from few days ago. Do check it out if you like awesome stuff: APOD.nasa


Peace out. Ivy ❤


Orange. What was first, the color or the name?


I love taking photos like this one… When I don’t have to do ANY editing whatsoever, none. 🙂

Also, I totally like the orange theme! It seems that I am surrounded with it since I saw it everywhere when I read this week’s theme for DPchallenge.

Enjoy in my gallery of “orange” while I go and eat one 😎

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?.”


White and Lilac


Some things are new, even though we know they are coming. Spring is coming, but knowing that does not diminish the fact that I love to see spring flowers blossom… It’s magical. I had to take few with me from the meadows of white and lilac waking flowers (saffron).


Here I Am.


I completely understand why famous people love to have their hand print made. It’s so powerful. Like you did something important, left your trail… 🙂

Although mine imprint is in snow I hope I will make some real difference in my life and lives of people around me, maybe even for people I don’t know all around the world. It’s cool to think about it.

This is an entry for WPC: Depth and below is entry for Scale.

Is it a underwater photo? How big it is?

You probably know what it is because of the photo above, but it’s still fun to imagine. 😉


Btw, I am better. 🙂
