2018 A New Start

Hello, my dear little Friends,

We have not talked since last year. Wow! How were your Christmas holidays? Did you find many presents under your Christmas tree? I did.

2018 is here, not sure I am ready to it. A new year means a new start to many of us. We hope that new year will be better than the old one. We make new resolutions and set new goals. Right? I have mine as well. I keep bugging you about my book that had to be published last year and volla…it was not. Actually, the largest obstacle was the editing process. You have no idea how difficult it is to find a good editor. Fortunately, I came across kind people who directed me in the right way.  The editing process has been launched. And now I try to sell my photos to gather money to pay my editor. I know that sounds weird, but on the way to my dream I might be a bit reckless…

Briefly, there is a good deal for those who need some greeting cards and do not know how to design them or have no time for it. I make you an attractive offer regarding six beautifully designed birthday cards at cheap price. Take a look:

Did you set your goals for 2018? I’d love to hear them, if possible!

 

Love you all,

Yours Ann

Saint Nicholas and Toys

Ho-ho-ho, my dear little Friends,

stock-photo-santa-hat-on-white-background-749917906

 

Did you find anything today under your pillow or in your shoes, or somewhere else? So, you were good all last year! Well-done!

In every country there is their own Santa or Nicholas who comes to children, while they are sleeping, and leave some presents for them.

Hope many of you know that his name is of Greek origin and means “victor of people”. It suits him, right? Perfectly.

Some of you might still doubt whether he existed.  Nicholas was born in Patara in A.D. 270 and served as Bishop of Myra, both seaport towns off Turkey’s southern coast where he lived all his life (and died in 345).

St. Nicholas’s anonymous gift-giving originated in his hometown of Patara in Turkey.  According to ancient tradition, the young Nicholas secretly threw three bags of gold coins through the window of a widower father and his three daughters on three consecutive nights to help them. His anonymous nocturnal gift-giving has continued in many countries to today, including being translated into Santa’s visits.stock-photo-dalmatian-puppy-ceramic-statue-and-penguin-toy-on-black-background-750861118

My dear little Friends, your dreams and wishes might come true today because you found something what you wanted under your pillow:

   stock-photo-cute-toy-grey-mouse-sleeps-on-red-pillow-on-white-background-valentine-present-love-and-happiness-767678824 However, some of you might not find anything today and can be really disappointed. That happens in life often, you dream, but dreams not always come true as in movies or books. Life is full of surprises and not all of them are pleasant ones. We have to be ready for it and still not loose our hopes and beliefs for the better!

Have a lovely St Nicholas Day!

Transit Zone

 

Autumn-19

THEY have not SEEN each other for more than nine months. She left for the other continent last year. It happened three months before they firstly saw each other after a one year emailing. She could not miss the chance of her life – she headed for her dream come true. Their love seed has been already planted, they were unaware of it though. Months of web messages and no live chatting scared their longing souls who were left alone in the ocean of every day routine. Each one kept the non-lit love flame deep inside. And today finally she landed on his continent on the way home. Eleven hours between flights turned his weekend laundry time topsy-turvy – he needed to see her, he could not let this idea go. A million typical romantic airport scenes played out in his head. He was starving to hear her voice, and to see her blue eyes. The missing emptiness honeycombed his broken heart – he was feverish. The same hotel rooms were his only shelter from loneliness. An unknown feeling settled in his wounded heart, he did not give it a name, neither a meaning yet. There was no time to sort him out – life and work sucked up almost all his energy. However, today everything was different. A man of action after a lot of sleeping awoke in him. The last day of June presented him a date with that lovely girl who was sitting and waiting for him in the transit zone.

 

stock-photo-red-blossoming-rose-macro-queen-of-flowers-727385062
A cute blonde with misty light blue eyes could not believe she would see HIM today. That was a spontaneous gesture of him, which might mean something, yet she did not dare to wish more. He outsmarted to police, his administrative experience came in handy. For the first time in his entire life he left himself as a hero – a knight in his shiny armors. Girls do love fairy tales and always fall in love with that handsome knight who is ready for any deed. His imagination directed the best film scenes and then….time stood still, his hazel eyes were laid on her. For some endless moment silence in the air was so thick that they could hear only the beats of their hearts.

Not mine, but based on true facts, story!

Love and be loved, and stay away of transit zones!

Obsession, Devotion, Work

Hello, my dear Friends,

Hope your week was successful and you did manage to accomplish several serious tasks. If not, then do not worry, you have plenty of time yet. Now time to relax and visit my channel at youtube.  Many of you know that I am a devoted film maker who cannot live a day without her camera.  I am obsessed with making videos about everything around me. Sometimes I dare to think of myself as a person who MAKES TIME STAND STILL. Every moment is unique and I would like to keep in in my heart.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBGjYIQCGU1OdVSQabHwZvQ

Though film making is not my only passion. Two years ago I discovered the still motion world and since then I have been babbling about any fantastic capture. A crazy kid who is happy about every shot made, especially great one.

Connect with my photoworld at twitter ann021814 or at Instagram ann.anro!

Finally, I recall my childhood years and come across the burning desire to write. I could not resist the possibility to start writing something serious and now I am on the half way to my new dream. I am going to finish it and you are going to LOVE IT. I am deadly serious and very decisive. Writing is a chat with my soul, it makes me feel complete. One more obsession, devotion, and work, which makes my heart jump in delight!

And what makes your heart jump in delight?

Have a delightful weekend! Do what you like and enjoy it!

Love you all,

Yours Ann

 

ALL THINGS ARE DIFFICULT BEFORE THEY ARE EASY

Look around and stop for a second, the most wisdom things are right in front of your nose…

Though we are too involved in many unimportant chores that forgot to be able to recognize the most obvious…

Somewhere, something I am thinking of…

New projects, new images, new ideas until I can, until I enjoy…

Until my territory is unrestricted…

I would like to make all things simplier!

Love you all,

Yours Film Director 

Sunday Photo Quiz

My cute Friends, the best way to relax at Sunday evening is to look at these photos and answer me “what does you see?”:

my-goal-0611

“Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.” (Milan Kundera)

bench-1-of-1

“You cannot score a goal when you are sitting on the bench. To do so, you have to dress up and enter the game.” (Israelmore Ayivor)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Love you all,

Homie

Friends, friends, friends! We haven’t seen each other for one week. How are you doing? Did you have a busy week? Mine was a bit busy. How lovely it is to stay at home for weekend and do just what you like. Edit your film, publish your photos and read your comments. This makes me feel good as if there is no distance and i just look at you while sipping a hot cup of tea with a delicisous sandwich…It is still winter in Kyiv and there, at you? Aren’t you drinking tea ☕ now? How do you like spending your weekend? What is your favorite relaxing exercise? I would love to hear…and feel a bit closer to you 😊…

Freezing of Water Painted by…

 Hello to you, my Friends! I am happy to see you silently browsing my blog pages. Hope you have some fun. This week our Mother Nature was especially generous for lovely surprises. She met dear Madam Weather and they agreed to have a painting masterclass. Look, what they’ve made:     Frozen Branch

We are very visual creatures.  Our love of images lies with our cognition and ability to pay attention. Images are able to grab our attention easily, we are immediately drawn to them. These are facts know to that two ladies whose pictures are just…help me with a proper adjective please? Comment, comment, comment…

dscn0725_li
Frozen Field

Don’t be greedy for compliments. These two artists were extremely successful today. Colors, shades, shapes are chosen so elegantly right. My eyes are beaming with pleasure, and yours? Not…hm…then one more image…

dscn0768_li

How odd is that the most beautiful things are most simple ones. They just wondered through that thick trees and enjoyed what they saw. Together with their simple equipment they managed to capture this innocent beauty and show to you. They felt themselves artists who can transform that live images into a picture that can hang on somebody’s wall or be presented as a greeting card. Do not know whether they were enough skillful, but their results are given here and available for download. In case some of you particularly like one of the image (or all of them) and would like to have then in original size or designed for special occasion as a greeting card, you may contact me via comment folder and I’ll provide you with all the required details ( I am their delegated agent). Everything is possible, art has no restrictions and borders. we can always spread it to be able to evaluate and treasure. A nice picture can always cheer you up in any season or weather, right, my Friends?

Have a sweet weekend! Enjoy the simplest!
