Better Late Than Never: The Changing Seasons – June 2021

Yep, that’s right, I’m almost 3 weeks late for June’s Changing Seasons post, and here’s the reason why.

The Changing Seasons – May 2020

  It’s time again for the wonderful challenge The Changing Seasons hosted by my dear friend Su from Zimmerbitch!   May presented itself with a lot of “firsts“…   …like the first rhubarb of the year that I stewed into a compote and served with warm semolina, a childhood favorite of mine that I still look forward toContinue reading “The Changing Seasons – May 2020”

A Splash Of Red

  In this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge Patti invites us to to a photo scavenger hunt to find things that are red.

Please Hold The Line

  This week Tina asked us to share some of the leading lines we’ve captured for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge!

A New Challenge

  First: Wishing you all a very Happy and Creative New Year!!!   I’m usually not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions – since they never seem to work anyway! – but this year I made one tiny one, and that is to allow myself more time for photography, and to make an effort toContinue reading “A New Challenge”

  It’s time again for the wonderful challenge The Changing Seasons hosted by my dear friend Su from Zimmerbitch!   HALLOWEEN Having shared with you the artwork by my students at the end of September where we were already busy crafting things for Halloween (back then it was still unfired and unglazed), I thought I’d show you howContinue reading “The Changing Seasons – October 2019”

The Changing Seasons – August 2019

  It’s time again for the wonderful challenge The Changing Seasons hosted by my dear friend Su from Zimmerbitch!   First of all I want to apologize for having been quite absent from blogging and for not having visited all your wonderful blogs as much as I wanted to.

An Afternoon at the Aquarium

  A couple of weeks ago I spent a lovely afternoon at the Berlin Aquarium which never fails to fascinate me. Watching the different jellyfish floating elegantly up and down their water tanks kind of mesmerizes me. I’m aware though, that the effect would be quite different if I were to meet them in theContinue reading “An Afternoon at the Aquarium”
