Nature gets everywhere (days 108-109)

Day 108, Saturday, 05.01.2013
It was a lovely warm sunny day outside, so I decided to put my beddings in washing machine. I just love it when you go to bed and you have this fresh feeling around you; though it’s not that perfect here in Portugal, because of all the moisture. But since it was sunny outside it was still quite nice at the end. =)
Anyway, while I was cooking my lunch our apartment owner stopped by to borrow my camera. She needed to take few photos of some dog she found in the street and she’s taking care of her (yes, it’s a she) for a couple of days now, but she really needs to find her some other home. That’s really nice of her. I hope poor dog will get a nice home.
Well after lunch I went out to take some photos, I went to shop and at the same time I was enjoying a walk on the sun. It was great! And it was really warm! I loved it! When I returned home I did some Portuguese language practices and edited few photos. That was more or less all for the day.

Day 109, Sunday, 06.01.2013

As soon as I woke up and had a delicious mango fruit for breakfast, I started to work on my Portuguese language course homework and practices. I really needed to work on it more. I did quite a lot of that, so hopefully I learned some new words. =) And again I edited some photos from yesterday. I don’t know what else to write. I guess I’m just in the mood for writing these days. So that’s why here are some photos I took yesterday.

Green grounds and fallen leaves (day 74)

Day 74 – Sunday, 02.12.2012
Another sunny morning and again time for some laundry. We have these sunny days for this because nobody knows how long they will last. After my workout exercises I decided to go out a bit and take some photos. So I went to that large park behind the hospital and this time I took my Canon 60d with me, because I didn’t go jogging and I could afford to take a larger camera. =)
I think I spent about a hour or hour and a half in that park. I really enjoyed it because it is simply beautiful park and it was just perfect because of the sun. To me it looks just like from a fairytale and colours there are amazing. Green grounds with orange fallen leaves and clear blue sky… Amazing. So today there is just few photos because I decided to take a bit more time for editing them and so I couldn’t edit a lot more. I’ll post some more of them tomorrow.
Anyway, after my photo mission I returned home and had some lunch. I also gave our kitchen some winter spirit by posting those paper snowflakes on a window, just as I did in my room yesterday. It is snowing in Slovenia today, so I brought some snow to our apartment too. =)
Later I talked to my family on Skype, because my mom was having a small birthday party and all of my reletives were there, so it was really fun to see them all! I even saw my cousins daughter and she’s growing so fast! When I’ll return she’ll probably already talk and say whole sentances. For now she was just looking at computer monitor all confused how is it possible that something from the monitor is calling her name and waving to her. =) So it was really nice to get some ‘family love’ from everybody. =)
Well most of the evening I spent editing following photos and that’s pretty much it for today. But I think it was nice and productive day and finally I really took time to play with photo editing possibilities. Though I know I could do even better if my laptop monitor wouldn’t be that bad and poor machine is just suffering when editing raw photos… New laptop next year, definitely.

Bršljan obsesija / Ivy obsession

Končno sem našla čas za nekaj uživanja poletnih počitnic, čeprav le za vikend. Kar sama sem se odpravila na morje, da si vzamem nekaj časa zase, da se brezskrbno lotim sproščanja. Seveda brez fotoaparata ne gre in tokrat je bil moj glavni motiv bršljan, ki mi je že od nekdaj všeč, pa tako priročno ga je tukaj povsod dovolj… =) Za spremembo sem se lotila tudi igranja z nekaj več efekti in barvnimi spremembami.

Finally I found some time to enjoy summer vacation, only if just for the weekend. I went to the sea side alone, to take some time for myself and to enjoy relexation carefree. Of course I can’t do without my camera and this time my motif was ivy, which I always liked, and how convenient that it’s so much of it here… =) And for a change I played with some effects and colour changes this time.
