Last spring and summer I watched this bird for hours. She would go to the bird bath and rest. Then go to the feeder and eat, rest, repeat. I love this bird, more than any other bird I've had the opportunity to capture. I showed this bird to an expert … was told this dear girl was likely old. I don't think I'll see her this year. I only hope she aged gracefully.

 

I hope you find her as lovely as I do!

I went along the beach of "the dune" on the island of Helgoland together with two good friends - looking for newborn great grey seals - and we had good weather and a lot of fun - just missing my heart when I saw this sea dweller in the tidal watershed... when you bring it to your ear you can listen to her tales of the deep water magic... :=)))

Story Telling...

Horseshoe Crab Spawn

A 450 Million Year Story Continues

Sandy Hook Gateway National Recreation Area, NJ

Friday night, I was getting ready to go to Jackson's barbecue, when Tanaka called asking about this weekend's trip to some resort farm kinda thing.

I didn't know if we were really going and saturday morning I was woken up by them, and told that I had half an hour to get everything together and ready for the trip.

It was a really nice place to go, we were in 9 people there, had barbecue all day long saturday and sunday.

But saturday afternoon it rained SO much and the weather turned SO cold I thought I was going to freeze.

Then Rafael told the other guys that there was going to be a funk party somewhere, saturday night. I didn't want to go for many reasons, the main one was that it was raining, and we had to hit a dirt (mud, actually) road to get to the place they thought this party was going to take place.

It was dark (no illumination at all), we were all getting pretty lost when someone saw a house by a far and said: "oh, I think it's there! Let's check out!"

The problem is that we'd have to go down a very long and steep dirt (mud) road. I was in the car with Guilherme and told him: don't go down there! we'll bog in the mud! There are too many cars! Too much rain! Too steep!

Guilherme told me: "You're such a pessimist! It's going to be an adventure!!"

We got down the "road" and there wasn't a passage to the house they had seen.

"Oh, we have to go back, the Chinese (Bruno) almost got stuck in the mud!" they said. Guilherme was the first one to try to go up, rear gear and still, he would just "dance" in the mud. One more thing. There was a creek right in front of us. The cars almost fell in many many times :P

I said:"I told you... what did I say? Did you listen to me?"

Gui just groaned something, because *now* he was really worried. Smart ass...

It started to rain heavier and Chinese (the craziest driver of all) managed to drive his car half way (and almost ruined the car's engine), but it wouldn't go further. So I told the guys to push the car. (I, obviously, wasn't going to get out of the car in that rain :P)

After they pushed, the car got "safely" up the road. Tanaka and Gui tried to drive their cars up, but they just couldn't. So Chinese had to drive all cars up. Perdiga was pretty much the "Mud Man". It only took us almost 3 hours to get out of there.

Sunday there were more "adventures", but I'll tell you about it in another occasion, this is already pretty long! ;-)

Sexta à noite, eu estava me preparando para ir ao churrasco do Jaxx, quando o Tanaka ligou perguntando se iríamos viajar esse fim de semana para as cabanas sei lá onde.

Eu não sabia se iríamos mesmo mas sábado de manhã me acordaram e disseram que eu tinha meia hora para arrumar tudo e ficar pronta para viajar.

Era um lugar bem bonito, e estávamos em 9 pessoas, fizemos churrasco o dia inteiro sábado e domingo.

Mas sábado à tarde choveu TANTO e ficou TÃO frio que eu achei q fosse congelar!!

Daí o Rafael surgiu com a lenda de que ia ter uma festa funk com umas piriguetes na casa principal. Eu não estava nem um pouco afim de ir, principalmente pq estava frio, tinha chovido, coisital e as estradas eram de terra (barro).

Estava o maior escuro, e estávamos ficando perdidos quando alguém viu uma casa ao longe e disse: "ah, *acho* que é ali! Vamos ver!"

O problema era que teríamos que descer uma longa e íngrime estrada de terra (lama). Eu estava no carro com o Gui e disse: "Não desce! A gente vai atolar! É muito carro, choveu um monte e é muito íngrime!"

O Gui disse: "Ai, Você é muito pessimista! Vai ser uma aventura, meu!"

Chegamos ao fim da "estrada" e não tinha passagem para a casa que eles tinham visto.

"Ow, a gente vai ter q voltar, o Chinês (Bruno) quase atolou ali..." disseram. O Gui era o primeiro a tentar subir, de ré e nem assim, só ficou derrapando e patinando. E mais uma coisa, tinha uma represa bem em frente da gente. Os carros quase caíram algumas boas vezes. :P

Eu disse: "Eu te falei... o que foi que eu disse? Alguém me escuta?"

O Gui resmungou alguma coisa, porque *agora* ele estava preocupado. Espertão.

Daí, pra melhorar, começou a chover mais forte e o Chinês (insano total) conseguiu subir o carro um pouco (e quase fodeu o motor do carro), mas não subia mais, ficava patinando na lama. Daí eu falei pros guris empurrarem o carro. (Eu, é óbvio, é que não ia descer do carro naquela chuva :P)

Depois de empurarem o carro subiu a estrada até o fim. O Tanaka e o Gui tentaram fazer seus carros subirem, mas sem sucesso. Então o Chinês teve que dirigir todos os carros. O Perdiga estava o próprio "Homem Lama". Só levou quase 3 horas para a gente conseguir sair de lá.

Domingo aconteceram outras "aventuras", mas eu escrevo sobre isso depois, pq esse texto já está enorme! ;-)

  

For 60 years, our family and friends have gathered at this lake cottage. If these walls could talk, the stories they would tell!

Summer is transitioning into autumn. In addition to the flowers and butterflies leaving, my child moved out of my house this week for a new job in a different state. Humans have seasons too.

for the Second Life Story Telling Group on 19th January 2019

 

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for the honor, I am very touched! Your group is exactly what I try to achieve through the work I created from SL.

Unos discuten, otros comentan, se cuentan cosas banales, o comparten su miseria. Todos van de dos en dos, pero yo, ¿a quién le digo que me siento sola?.

There was a story to tell......There was DESTRUCTION.....as usual.

Then there was a visitation.

how I found her the other morning... love how she dressed her herself. She doesn't go anywhere without that skirt on, it goes over dresses, over jeans, pretty much over anything :)

A mother's dream is to see her children grow to be happy and successful...

Sorry I haven't been uploading much lately. First problem is all this rain, I haven't been able to get a good full day of shooting in for a long time. 2ndly is school and all the work that brings on. 3rd is probably the fact my internet feels like dial up lately because Comcast has been having some problems on my line. I haven't been able to fave or comment or even post much because the internet is so slow, it will be resolved soon and hope to catch up better then.

 

Thanks

I was struggling with the title for this picture I took at Goldfishmarket located on Tung Choi street in Hong Kong. I could have chosen street-photography. But for me it is more than that. In this image there is so much going on: the "merchandise" in all it's forms and colours, the lady walking, the rain, the traffic, "who's living in the apartments on the left?", "what are the girls in the background looking at?" etc, etc...

 

I like to tell stories. IRL, but also in my images. So I came up with a this new (?) genre.

 

(listen to this song while watching the image: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTwtIbgoQhM )

Have a great weekend!!
