ANROALISTIC PHOTOJOURNEY TO NIEDERNSILL: FIVE O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING

My dear little Friends,

Thank you, my dear Maverick  and my dear Carole  for your kind comments on my previous post! I was happy to bring you with me!

And my journey goes on…

“Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera (Yousuf Karsh).

It is only five o’clock in the morning. But my mind revolves as on a pivot. My head is aching strongly as if somebody put something heave on it. I try to lift it from my soft welcoming pillow, but it falls heavily back. My eyelids flicker open to the sunlit room and the morning light trickles in through the blinds. I close my eyelids again. Shedding myself of the remaining glimpses of a dream, my eyes were still shut as I soaked in the warmth of my covers before letting my green eyes see the sun’s rays. The tasks of the day became demanding and I think about them. I slowly turn my head to the clock standing on the night table. I check the time and wondered why I am awake at such an early hour. No sleepiness, no slow warming up. Within seconds of realizing I am on my feet, eyes wide, and dreams not just forgotten but erased. The sleepy girl sits up, drags her feet off the bed, and rubs her knuckles onto her eyes. I watch my legs dangle above the brown old carpet. How oddly exciting I felt when I opened my shutter and saw this view.

The late night I got there by car and saw nothing around me. It was pitch-dark: I couldn’t see my hand before my face. But now I understood that I woke up in the other world. As if I turned my flying machine on and landed on the other planet. Sounds crazy, right? But that’s how I felt. The view was so stunning that I did not trust my eyes. The more I was standing on the porch in my red sleeping gown, the more excitedly my heart bet. I could not believe that such beautiful places exist. Even more I could not believe that I was there and everything what I saw was real. I did not look at the advertising pictures in the travel magazine, I saw them in reality. That’s what traveling gives us, it allows us to discover what this wonderful world has to offer. Just think that you might never see this place, you may never experience the excitement of new things, or never be amazed by simple and yet surprising joys of life. Just think!

Where was your last journey? Do you read travel magazines?

Please make me happy and leave your comments! Remember that you can be featured in my next post!

Love you all,

Yours A

 

ANROALISTIC PHOTOJOURNEY TO NIEDERNSILL (INTRODUCTION)

My dear little Friends,

I am excited to announce a new series of posts based on my journal notes made in Alps. Everything I saw, felt, experienced, liked and disliked. Only my thoughts and only for you…

Niedernsille-6977

“When I travel I explore…myself. Curious wanderer. That’s how I would describe myself, my life right now. I have wandering soul hungry for a perfect place, an ideal moment, and a great shot. My wandering soul brought me there. A little village between Austrian Alps is not in the must-visit places, but I found there something that none of famous mountains resorts can offer me…”

Time to Smell Roses

Time to see the results of seeding…

Why women like roses so much? Because of their sweet smell and perfect shape? Or because they have thorns protecting them from rude invaders? Oh my!

Every rose is so unlike the other and yet similar in being pure female, pure fragile and delicate!

Every rose is a bunch of layers that needed to be cared for. Go deeper, Honey! Layer by layer, the most interesting is hidden deeply down!

They can be happy or sad! They can laugh and cry! They can brighten this world and darken as well!

Stay Healthy, Vegetables From Garden

 

Hello, my little Friends,

Summer is the best season for our health since the choice of vegetables and fruits is the largest one. So many vitamins in one plate. Who would know that cucumber is one of the oldest cultivated crop, originated mainly in northern India. Cucumbers are excellent source of vitamins K, C and different B vitamins. They are also very good source of sodium, copper, amino acids, carbohydrates, soluble and insoluble fiber content. It is no wonder that your skin will look great after smashing yourself with a piece of cucumber.

The word “radish” comes from the Latin “radix,” meaning “root,” and the Greek word “raphanus,” which translates to “quickly appearing”. Well, I did recognize it, radishes were the first in my garden! Radishes contain significant amounts of vitamin C and several other vitamins and minerals. I love radishes, they are my favorite red buddies!

Mister Onion is the main at my plate. Onions have been used as food for thousands of years; in ancient Egypt, they were worshiped and used in burial rituals. Onion helps killing microbes in your body, a good disinfector as well, not to mention that it contains a lot of vitamins and minerals! Onions kisses…muuah!

Stay in tune for more veggies and fruits from my garden and many fun facts about them!

Without the Weekend, Where Would the Week Be?

“Without the weekend, where would the week be?”
― Anthony T. Hincks

with beauty in my heart

Have you ever asked yourself what can be if we don’t have weekends? Wow, I confess that I never though of it before, but now I do.

“A wild and crazy weekend involves sitting on the front porch, smoking a cigar, reading a book.”  (Robert M. Gates)

So, what are you doing this weekend?

Delightful Poppy Seeds

 

 

” Be quick!” exclaimed I and hastily inserted my lenses to the camera. Fortunately, the weather promised to be sunny and not too hot, thus I had good light conditions to shoot poppy seeds. They were gracefully turning their heads to my camera in modest attempts to show their most attractive bends. Through my viewfinder I spotted their delicate fringe petals that were easily blown away.  Only their fluffy turbine-like heads were curiously casting a glance at you. It was tempting to make a closeup in black and white, there is something intriguing in all colorless pictures. It helps the photographer to go back in time when there was no alternative to black and white images. Do not click endlessly, just take delight in capturing the scenes. Maybe I am lack of technical skills, but I am in ecstasies about photographing the beauty surrounding us!

Have a delightful day!

A Picnic IS More Than…

“A picnic is more than eating a meal, it is a pleasurable sate of mind.”
DeeDee Stovel

Isn’t it deliciously said, my dear little Friends,

Who is with me for a picnic today?

There is nothing more delightful than a BBQ in a good company, right? Where did you go for a picnic last time?

You know I thought that sometimes we should get out of homes and social networks, we have to switch off our laptops and phones and throw then out of our busy minds. And why not to invite people to share with them your Sunday picnic!

The concept of the picnic dates back more than 250 years when it was considered to be a big event in the social calendar where the guests contributed food to the party. Now picnics get a more personal meaning. We love going out for picnics with our families and friends.

The word ‘picnic’ can be traced back to French roots almost a century after it was first seen in French originating from the word ‘pique-nique.’

The form of the picnic basket has evolved over the years to transform from a simple woven wicker basket to house more complicated features like separate hot and cold compartments, a detachable blanket for picnics and even a wine chiller. Nowadays, our picnic baskets look differently. Surely, we can put there some meat or fish and mostly vegetables with some beverages to refresh under hot summer sun. Yet I hope picnics are not so much for food joy as for the joy of being together and spend time with people whom you care for. Such a hectic lifestyle requires some unity with nature and your loved ones in calmer surroundings. Why not to grab some fishrods as well and impress your family with freshly caught fish that can be grilled with seasonings, hmm, I can nose the smell…yam. There is nothing perfect than a sip of tea  while watching the sunset over the river on the blanket! Such moments cannot be bought or found at social networks, they are real not virtual ones! Let’s treasure and enjoy them!

And in case you liked my delicious pictures so much that you need them, please download here Shutterstock  or contact me for some business enquiries!

Yammm!

Happy Mother’s Day

Flowers-5

Dear Mothers,

This gentle tulip I am presenting you today with the warmest hugs and wishes! Today in Ukraine we celebrate this special day and I couldn’t resist writing a couple of words on this lovely holiday!

Flowers-6

Early Mother’s Day celebrations can be dated back to the spring celebrations to honor Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, in ancient Greek civilization, according to some sources.

The modern-day origins of Mother’s Day can be attributed to two women – Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis, who were important in establishing the tradition in the United States.

I am grateful to these women who paid a special attention towards such an important even as honoring our mothers. Our mothers are the most important people for us, they devoted their lives to us and the least we can do is tell them a huge THANK YOU and give them the tightest HUG!

Whenever it’s celebrated in your country, please visit your moms and tell them how much you love them!

Flowers-2

Love you all,

Yours A
