Little Pleasures

Two days in a row without rain - and even the sun came out a bit and said hello!That's really all it takes to persuade me to enjoy a little photo walk.

Photography really slows me down - I take the time to look up and notice tiny details

and I also take the time to stop and look down to see what's at my feet

and then I admire all those lovely flowers with their wonderful colours

Did I mention that I love photography...

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Another Rose

Roses don't get much of a chance to show off their beauty this year with all the rain we've had over the last weeks. So I decided to provide a platform for those rare beauties and there is no better one than Lisa's Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful start into the week and enjoy the links!

Aurora on Wednesday

This is my contribution for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. I know it's Wednesday already, but I still wanted to share this one with you.

This rose is one of the few that survived the cold temperatures, the rain and the storms and I thought I'd honour her with a little processing. I used two layers of Kim's freebie "Aurora" - I really like it on the photo, as it somehow integrates the brown spots on the petals in a beautiful way.

Lisa's Creative Exchange

In one of her recent posts, Ashley wrote about a wonderful vintage polaroid set over at Katie Lloyd Photography. Katie provides a free download of the set and as I loved the look of it I decided to give it a go. It's really so easy to use and so much fun to play around.

I tried the frame on several photos - this one is my absolute favourite and I'll link up to Lisa's Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful start into the week!

From My Walk

It was really a wonderful day yesterday and I was so happy to get out from the office at least on time.

I enjoyed my photo walk, although somehow I had chosen a route where there weren't so many flowers around. I found this rather battered lavender - I wish you could smell it. Just to lean in close and inhale deeply was worth the photo!

I really wonder why I don't do that more often...

Have a wonderful day!

Creative Exchange

I have the feeling that summer is slipping through my fingers. I spend the finest hours of the day in the office, where my sinuses keep struggling with the air conditioning (which is also blowing much too cold for my liking, leaving me sipping hot tea almost all the time) and when I'm finally free to enjoy the sun one thunderstorm chases the next one and then there is rain, even hail and an abrupt drop of temperature.

The forecast for this week says that tomorrow will be a warm and sunny day (the last one for this week), so I plan to leave early and then enjoy the rest of the day. I might just take my camera with me and maybe find a few flowers that survived the last storms - just as the ones above I found last week.

Now, I'm heading over to Lisa's blog to link my post up to her Creative Exchange - see you there.

Have a wonderful week!
