Easter Blur

IMG_0564

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

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

IMG_0m882

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

_MG_0081

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.

IMG_0213

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. 🙂

A Cloud Has Landed

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Shadowed.”

IMG_0138

I like fog. It is both scary (specially if you’re driving) and fun… You can imagine different scenery around you, different view on the streets you watch every day. The photo is taken 20th November spontaneously, my sis is checking out the weather AND posing without knowing. 🙂

I have caught a bad cold, so I’m off to bed with my tea. Don’t worry, your comments are waiting for me. 🙂 ❤

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays… I saw the life inside

New.

IMG_0172

What says new beginning more than a sunrise? New Year. New human life. (Read on the whole post 😉 ) My resolution to post more of my photos here. There is and won’t be nothing “new” about this Year if I don’t choose to make it so. 

I love sunrises and it is somewhat rare for me to see them – I am a night owl most of the time. 🙂 So, these moments are very special, especially because I photographed this sunrise when i woke up and not when I was going to bed after all night making love to the internet. 😀

I took it on December 30. It started snowing here on December 27 and it didn’t stop for two days. So I woke up on December 30 and saw sun rays piercing through my blinds. You can see on my header how much I love sunrises (and sunsets) and you can maybe see comparing the two photos how much more south the Sun rises in the winter.

Also, I have a happy news, another new begining. 😀 My cousin, daughter from my father’s sister gave birth to the cutest baby boy yesterday! ❤ They are both fine and this just feels me with joy hehe 😀

Also, I have been yearning to listen to this song for some reason.

p.s. The title is from the lyrics of the song. 🙂
