This is a precious little boy with his favorite toy, a bicycle. Peruvian families appreciate what they have. The boy was quite intrigued with my camera, and I am proud of this photo. Amazon CARES is an organization that deals with public health and children´s education issues as well as animal rescue.

Be happy whatever you do this weekend and thanks for visiting.

I did not get my Christmas gift and Santa did not come on Christmas Day. I know why. Because he got stuck at the window here. I saw him since Christmas Day until end of the year here!


So please do not think that you are not good this year or not good enough this year if you did not get the gift from Santa. It is simply that he got stuck somewhere!


Similar situation like photo competition you have entered. If you did not win the grand prize, it is simple and straight that you have not met with a judge panel that will appreciate or in empathy with your photographic vision. You will get to the place when you meet with a good judge.


Is this called "positive thinking"? :o)


Happy Friday and great weekend!

Is it wrong to be doing the ironing and think “Mmmmmmmm what pic can I do that involves an iron?". My mind has been racing with all the things I have to do over xmas, what I still have to get and do, housework, kids school plays etc and as I was ironing I was thinking about the night out that I have on Friday “free bar” posh frock and all that good stuff and then I thought “god I hope I don’t get steaming” voila pic is born. Iron on face with steam coming out head. Very random I know but sometimes this is how I get my ideas. I often stare at an object and wonder how I can make a pic or a scene out of it. Why the feck I'm jumping mid air is a mystery though!!!


Oh and thanks for all the votes on the competition I entered, not sure if I posted the right link so if anyone wants to help me win here it is again Vote for me please x I just checked and I think I definately posted the wrong link in my last image. I've changed it now!!

I entered a photocompetition with this shot a while ago. the theme was "dream is dream is dream" (roughly translated) so I thought it might would apply. I named the photo "verklighetsflykt" which would be something like "to escape from reality" in english.


I listen to the escapist by world's greatest band Coldplay while I look at this, you should too.

Many Mursi will put 'anything' on their heads to attract tourists, the first time its very overwelming to see the people like this. They mostly look or will look angry, like a warrior.

This young woman did not want a lipplate. So times are changing and now girls can refuse this very old custom. Omo Valley Nat.Park

Viewing terrace. Tanguá Park, Curitiba, PR, Brazil.


This park was inaugurated in 1996, the Tanguá Park surprises with its beauty as an example of urban space being re-utilized - on one old complex of disactivated quarries -, and it is part of the Barigüi river preservation project joining Tingüi and Barigüi parks. This park with an area of 450 thousand square meters has two quarries connected by a 45 meter tunnel that may be crossed on foot by a path over the water. It can be visited by boat or on foot (hiking). The park has a cooper and bicycle track, snack bar, belvedere and Poty Lazzarotto garden.


Repost: fotowedstrijd Utrechts Landschap gewonnen. Deze foto komt in, en wellicht op de cover van hun kwartaalblad. Trots:-) I won a photocompetition with this photo. The photo will be published in (and maybe even as the cover of) the magazine of Utrechts Landschap. The organization that protects nature in the province I live.

[Worn smooth after centuries of foot traffic, the stone] ramp inside the first northern buttress leads to the upper galleries that overlook the nave [of Hagia Sophia]. The view of the nave becomes all the more splendid from the top making it an exhilarating experience altogether. Certain sections of these galleries were exclusively reserved for the Empress and the other ladies of the court while other parts of the gallery were used for meetings of the Church council. The center of the upper gallery was the domain of the Empress, and was known as the Loge of the Empress. The place where the throne of the Empress stood is marked by a round, green stone. The royal ladies would sit there and watch the proceedings that took place below.


The galleries were richly decorated with mosaics which depicted various religious fables. Some of the best preserved ones can be seen in the southern side of the gallery. The Deesis is one such mosaic, which probably dates back to 1261. and is situated in the Imperial enclosure of the upper gallery, [...].


The Hagia Sophia of Istanbul was converted to a museum by none other than its first President, Ataturk, as a tribute to the Republic of Turkey in 1935.


Hope you are enjoying your Wednesday and thanks so much for dropping by.

Lightning is an atmospheric discharge of electricity accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms, and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms.[1] In the atmospheric electrical discharge, a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 60,000 m/s (220,000 km/h), and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C (54,000 °F), hot enough to fuse silica sand into glass channels known as fulgurites which are normally hollow and can extend some distance into the ground.[2][3] There are some 16 million lightning storms in the world every year.[4]


Lightning can also occur within the ash clouds from volcanic eruptions, or can be caused by violent forest fires which generate sufficient dust to create a static charge.[1][5]


How lightning initially forms is still a matter of debate:[6] Scientists have studied root causes ranging from atmospheric perturbations (wind, humidity, friction, and atmospheric pressure) to the impact of solar wind and accumulation of charged solar particles.[4] Ice inside a cloud is thought to be a key element in lightning development, and may cause a forcible separation of positive and negative charges within the cloud, thus assisting in the formation of lightning.[4]


No time to post another photo today. My sister, Trinimusic2008 (Judy) , is flying in from Toronto for a visit. Will visit when I can. Enjoy your day and thanks for dropping by.

I ended up with quite a few photos of this Big Wheel after I decided to enter a photocompetition to win a free ride.

Yes I'm still busy..


But I won my first real photocompetition! At least, I'm in the last eight nominees and I am proud with that :D


The competition is from the local newspaper and it was about the renewal from Groningen. I entered this photo

Late last year, for the first time in my life, I joined a photo competition, an open category nation-wide one. I never expect to win anything. Very very tough challenge pitting my small simple point & shoot camera (a Canon A630) against those pro, semi-pro & serious hobbyists with their big powerful DSLR. The results were announced on 26th Feb this year. There were over 8000 entries for the open category and only 63 were selected as winners. Imagine my utter surprise and joy when against all odds, my photo won a Merit Award!

What did I won? Beside the glory, S$100 cash(cheque), a Nikon CoolPix L21, a certificate and a 5R photo of my entry.

The title is taken from the Mike Oldfield song "Let There Be Light" from the album "The Songs of Distant Earth." So, my friends, just click, sit back, relax and listen:


I was captivated by the brilliant sunshine and striking geometric small paned window shadows on the pillars and marble floor of the Upper Gallery of the Hagia Sophia. Istanbul, Turkey.


Hagia Sophia, the one that you can visit today, was built by emperor Justinian I between 532-537 AD over the remains of the previous basilica. [...]. The church became the glorious symbol of the Byzantine Empire and the largest church of Christendom in the world. For almost 1000 years the Hagia Sophia was the seat of the Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople. Church councils and imperial ceremonies were held here. [...].


On May 29th, 1453, the Ottomans conquered Constantinople and sultan Mehmet II ordered to convert the church into a mosque. [...].


Aya Sofya [Hagia Sophia] remained a mosque for almost 500 years until 1935 when Atatürk converted it into a museum so everybody could come to visit this architectural masterpiece and admire both Christian and Muslim art.


Thanks for visiting.

Couldn't resist another shot of these pomegranate reflections on our granite kitchen island.


The pomegranate has appeared in myths, legends, art and history for centuries. Associated with health and rebirth, some scholars even place the pomegranate in the Garden of Eden, instead of an apple. Known as one of the earliest cultivated fruits, they may date back to 2000 B.C. and are still a fruit of fascination today.


Have a wonderful evening / day and thanks ever so much for dropping by.
