Week 46- Misty mornings

Week 46- Misty mornings

Musical background.

I hate mornings like this. But I love my photo of the week.

My camera is at the neighbor’s yard and I am on the other side of barb wire.

In mornings like this one, it’s the best not to play with colors.

However, you can take advantage of shapes and silhouettes.

Along with the fact that the neighbor is not around.

And make wet-almost-monochromatic-dangerous photo.

I guess Bob Marley felt like that when he wrote our musical background, while being in UK.

Knowing that Rita is enjoying Jamaican sunshine.

And colors.

Oh Rita, you lucky one!


Week 44- Tripod!

Week 44- Tripod!

OMG, look at these green leaves and the date of publishing! Shame on me!

I have to tell you that I have completed my photo challenge on time and I am getting ready for the next one. But in the meantime, I have to publish all the photos that remain, and it is pretty number. I was working so hard on my SUPERNOVA project, one more photo challenge, coaching, yoga and the time just slipped away. Anyway, I’ll speed up and in two weeks I promise to be back on the tracks. I apologize for being late. (Will not happen in 2014., it my New year resolution. 🙂 🙂 🙂 )

This photo is captured on lovely autumn day. (Believe me that it was an autumn, despite all the green leaves and very few yellow ones.) That day I got a lovely and incredibly useful gift that I was whining for for the ages. It is a small tripod for a camera. (Actually, we had one a few years ago, but we have mysteriously lost it.) It is “must have” thing for self portraits. Don’t even ask me how I managed to take 43 photos without it!

We have spotted the tripod in a store and we asked for the price.

“3 Euros.” the guy from the store said.

“Gimme, gimme, gimme!”, I shouted.

Then the girl from the store made us a check and said:

“OK, it would be a 300 Euros for you…..”

“What, what, what?!”

We almost ran outside, feeling like we tried to steal something and got caught. It turned out that the girl typed a code for some fancy-cyber-camera lens and she couldn’t correct the check. We have waited for a half an hour and finally got our baby-tripod for an initial price of 3 Euros (or 1 Euro per pod, if you prefer.)

This is a very first photo with it. I held the tripod with camera on it in my shaky-shaky hand. But the photo was fine, nice, sharp and vivid. Good, good investment!
