"Macro Mondays" "Summer Olympic Sports"

My amazing daughter just finished inside the top 300 in the 53 mile, half of the West Highland Way, ultramarathon. 11 hours and 48 minutes!

The time is running fast, it's last week of the year!

Wishing you a Happy New Year with the hope that you will have many blessings in the incoming year!


Happy New Year 2020!


It was quite early in the morning but the sun was already very bright and harsh.

I had to lie prone on the look-out deck to photograph this duck in order to avoid the glare from the water and the background reed vegetation.

These large and beautiful Trumpeter Swan like many waterfowl need a running start to fly! Their large web feet are like tires to get up the speed keep them from sinking!

I know, panning is not everybodys liking, but me I like it. I still have to improve in that technique.


Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.

Hello my amazing Flickr friends !


Today is an orange day at Color my World Daily and we have Mr. Teddy Bear with us since we celebrate Happy Teddy Bear Tuesdays. The theme at Crazy Tuesday is song title.


So of course I was searching for songs about bears but other than this awesome classic Let me be your Teddy Bear. And guess what ? I found a perfect song for illustrate the way I have been feeling lately. Apparently there is this song called : Running Bear by Johnny Preston! Isn’t that perfect ??? And yes, it is a real song and it does exist and was popular (at one point in human history it was even number one in UK, around 1960)!!

You can hear it here:


Running bear is the perfect song for me ! I love to run, I haven’t shaved my legs since almost the beginning of the pandemic (sorry TMI!!!), I eat Nutella everyday: I truly feel like a Running Bear ! This is the best association ever. So I hope you will like my picture and maybe the song (it isn’t bad at all but everything depends of what kind of music you like …).


And since, today is my running day : the bear is in the house !! LOL Have a beautiful day and see you later my friends !!


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments / favs/ general support / happy thoughts!! Stay safe and well!! And see you soon on Flickr !!

Hello my amazing Flickr friends !!

Today is a red day at Color my World Daily and we celebrate footwear at Macro Mondays !


So this is my contribution to both of those fabulous Groups.


My inspiration for this picture was me walking on a strawberry (which I accidentally dropped on my kitchen floor… yes, I’m very, ver clumsy… you have no idea !) with my favorite slippers. I was about to eat that strawberry with a little bit (ok… a LOT ) of Nutella . I wanted to make it a healthy choice, that is why I added a strawberry…Unfortunately my husband came in the kitchen and I had to act very fast and then I dropped the strawberry and just shoved the whole spoon (spatula) full of Nutella in to my mouth… And then Boom !, I stepped on the strawberry. You know the whole story…

So I recreated my story in this picture, I just used different shoes and a different strawberry (since the first one was completely squished !! Yes, since I’m eating Nutella my weight is way too much for a tiny strawberry…).


Who else is addicted to Nutella ?


Happy CMWD and happy MM to all participants !! And for the rest of us : happy day !!


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments / favs/ general support / happy thoughts!! Stay safe and healthy!! And see you soon on Flickr !!

We say life is meant this way but we break

We say we are born this way, so, why change?

Seeping down, deep and down in me

Holding on, 'cause I can hardly breathe

It's darker now, the silence brings me sleep

I'm yearning for a hunger in my dreams, yeah


Now, this is music to my ears!

One just wants to graze, whilst the other two run off a bit of energy!

Life keeps us busy at times.. and pulls us in many directions at one time..

All we can do is carry on and take things head on.

Just remember, Never give up.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, just cause you can not see the light , it is there..

It's just a long tunnel.

So we stay focused and move forward.

We work hard and play hard.

Never let things hold us down.

What do they say? (what don't kill us, just makes us stronger)

I aim to be hulk like strong before this is over 😂😂


Take good care my friends and stay safe. Hugs 💙

Image taken at ISO 5000, the noise is quite apparent. Nevertheless, I find the reflections and the overall image scheme quite pleasing.
