March Photo Challenge: Floral Still Life

This is my submission to the current Rock the Shot Challenge. I love how the tip of the flower is surrounded by that pretty bokeh. Keeps the attention on the subject. Isn’t it sad how something so small and pretty is considered a weed?

Spring is here!

It’s so nice outside recently so I had the urge to get some pics of the flowers that are blooming now everywhere. So yesterday afternoon i was crawling around on my neighbours frontyard. Oh boy that must have looked so silly. I politely waved to every passing car so they don’t think I’m a weird creeper. 🙂

I even had the luck to catch a bee in some of the photographs. Love crocuses. One of my favorite spring flowers. They come in so many shades and colors. Feel free to use the big horizontal Image as a Background Picture for your Laptop or Computer Monitor. It’s currently mine 😉

Here are the results!

“why do you look so sad?”

– “Because you speak to me in words and I look at you with feelings”

Aaaaaah, I hate being sentimental! Being german and a gemini doesn’t make it any better…

“Gemini’s can have feeling of discouragement and moodiness although they never allow this to be seen by anyone but heir closest friends or family. Gemini usually want everyone to think that they are always happy and doing wonderfully and stress never affects them.”…..”The Gemini woman is truly enchanting. However, dating her might feel more like a friendship then a real relationship due to her casual nature. This is not necessarily a disadvantage, for the casual man who shy’s away from overly romantic emotions, she is the perfect woman. Since she is the astrology sign of the duality, she offers quite the challenge. One one hand, she needs to be nurtured, loved and catered to and on the other hand, she needs stimulation and novelty. She is very demanding and if you do not provide what she wants, she will be off onto the next adventure pretty quickly.”

This nails it pretty much….

Where is the winter?

Beeing from Europe I try to keep up as much as possible with the news. Apparently there is a huge cold wave  crossing the Continent and turning it into a Winterwonderland. Beautiful! But wait a second, it’s February here as well and Climate is supposed to be similar. So why can I go out in just a light Jacket? The whole global warming thing is pretty scary. Don’t get me wrong I’m not a person for the cold. I’m mean yes I grew up in Germany and I always get told here that I can’t complain about the cold because I should be used to it. That still doesn’t mean i’ve to like it. I enjoy the warm sun shining in my face but that also makes me wonder how these changes affect our future life.

I went to Compo Beach the other day and took some nice icy and frosty shots. I love the fresh, salty air. And the season is great to take your dog for a walk since they open the beach for dogs in the cold month.
