WeeklyPhoto Challenge: Afloat

MMMhh not so easy because I added a  great (in my opinion) floaty picture to last weeks challenge (Blur) as an extra and when I got the mail for this week, I was like: “OOhhh nooooo, I used mine already!”.

But I’m over that now lol. You can read about the challenge here: Afloat.

The first picture is part of a painting I own, painted by a sweet friend as a weddinggift. The marriage is a distant memory, but the waterlilies are still happily afloat in my livingroom….

The second picture brings us to the fountain, where the water gets shot up, keeps ascending to a certain point and then stays afloat in the wind, just for a while.

And the third photo I took some time ago when the sight of a sunny lemon afloat in my tea on a grey day made me feel a lot chirpier!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur

Below you will find the blurred version of the picture.
If you want you can take a minute to think about what it is.

Any idea?



Above you’re looking at the sharp picture, maybe you can see what it is now? It still looks quite different from it’s original state. It’s a “dried” fig in water kefir :-).

It’s sugars feed the kefir grains so that in return they can produce healthy probiotics. I think it looks quite funky, floaty, foggy and extra terrestrial, that’s why I did a little extra collage below.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

This is a self-portrait that I edited a while ago.

I was just having fun, playing around with it and in the end I thought the brown/black hue fit perfectly with the statuesque or quite haughty (as some might find) pose.

What this reveals about me, is how I am perceived by some people…until they take a chance on getting to know me better ;-).


The hue of me

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

I took this week’s challenge quite literal, but I tried not to fall into a cliché either.

So no, these aren’t little garlic cloves, in case you are wondering what the heck they are. These are my son’s cute little milk-teeth and I think they are a great example of renewal. They remind me of the constant state of renewal our bodies are in…our hair, skin, nails, bones etc. regenerate constantly and that is SO amazing!

I only wish that Mother Nature would have thought of providing a new set of sparkling new teeth every 20 years or so, but I guess it was impossible to foresee that at one point in time humans would basically last forever. 😉


Out with the old, time to renew…


Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

I can’t say this was an easy challenge for me, my initial response was:” Uughh noooo”. But after that first bout of enthusiasm I enjoyed the process of trying to open up to it and I started to use my eyes in an unfamiliar way. Anything too “logic or mathematical” scares me somehow, maybe because it can come across as stern and hard, but I have to rethink that now (well trying anyway). So thanks for the challenge, it definitely challenged me!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Just the other day I wanted to take a quick look at the manual for the new flippers I bought. Guess I was lucky there isn’t much to understand about them…
