Yesterday was National Day in Luxembourg and fireworks were shot from all over the country. We had our very own private spot from our apartment window. It took us a bit by surprise, because we didn’t expect them at all. It was a very nice welcome to our new home 🙂
Hope you enjoy the photos!
Roses are red, violets are blue. I’m wishing a beautiful day, to everyone of you … and that’s about how good my riming skills are, so let’s not push it too far.
I’ve uploaded a few photos of my valentine roses (yes it has been a while). I actually don’t like bouquets that much, I think flowers are just more beautiful outside than in a vase on the dining table. Still, I’m making an exception for valentine’s day…
Hope you enjoyed it and see you in a bit 🙂
Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the most photogenic of them all ?
Well, today I thought it would be nice to show you some faces again. Unfortunately, I’m missing out on some crazy volunteers, who would happily endure the torture of a little photoshoot… So I just dug out some old portraits and edited them again. I have to say that taking portraits is by far not my speciality, but editing them is always a lot of fun, especially if I can do some nice double exposure effects 🙂
I hope you like the result of my sunday photoshoping 🙂
I wish you all a nice weekend!
Last week was a really busy one for me and so I only have two photos for you. I think they nicely show the big contrast between industry and nature.
On the first picture, I especially love the thick steam clouds coming out of the factory’s chimney; it’s as if they want to mimic the clouds in the sky trying to be part of the stunning sundown.
A few days ago, on my way to work, I discovered a few trees full of nests. Alone by the noise surrounding the place, it was easy to guess which birds were nesting there: crows. It is true, that crows are neither elegant nor beautiful birds, but they have the unique power to add a touch of mystery and spookiness to every possible scenery.
I hope that my photos can show you the beauty and mystery of those crow’s nests and that I managed to spook you just a little tiny bit :). And because I think it fits, I will leave you with a little verse of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven (just for the spooky mood…).
And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—nevermore!
Yesterday was a sunny day in Luxembourg (yes that’s quite something special here 🙂 ) and as great finale of the day, we had a beautiful sundown at the countryside. When it is sunny, the countryside is my absolute favorite place to be! It always feels like holidays 🙂 .
I hope you like the pictures and that you too had a beautiful sundown of your own!
Spring slowly settles in and everything becomes green and full of life again. This is my cue to go out and take some brand new nature photos. Today, I opted to simplify nature’s complex colour scheme in a calm black and white pattern. This is something I rarely do, because I am deeply fascinated by all the colours nature can offer. Still, I have to say that black and white sometimes creates a unique atmosphere which can enchant us as much as all the colours our world can offer.
As the saying goes, nothing is black and white. It’s a million shades of grey.
