    1. Thank you for your lovely comment! It’s much appreciated πŸ™‚ It’s winter in my part of the world and I wanted to bring back some memories of the green lush summer…

  1. Happiness comes in small packets and Santa gave you quite a bundle full.. Thanks for sharing it with us πŸ˜€ Macro view indeed shows us how beautiful the world really is πŸ™‚

    1. Haha, I like your Santa metaphor! Actually, we don’t have Santa here, we have what we call Father Frost πŸ™‚ That’s just an irrelevant piece of info for fun! I’m glad that the shots worked for you! I admit that these are probably my best so far…

        1. Of course I don’t expect you to know the customs of my country, that’s why I pointed it out as a fun fact πŸ˜‰ One of the things I love about blogging is getting in touch with people from elsewhere and learning about their customs and their way of life… And seeing the world through their eyes, or lens, like in your case!

          1. Yes,it feels so nice as if I already traveled a bit in your land and had a part in its lifestyle πŸ˜€

  2. These are simply beautiful, colours, framing, focus…dreamy quality….so, to pick up a thread from a different post, you have just shown us there is always something new to photograph and although I sense how frustrating it feels to run out of subjects…I am convinced you still have much to show us from your perspective…these really are lovely…

    …now, when are you going to explore those bushes that lie across the bridge…..? x

    1. Thank you so much, Andy, for your kind words and appreciation. It’s incredibly uplifting. It would almost make me happy, provided that I had the capacity of being happy, of course πŸ˜‰ It’s a shame that all these plants are gone now and there’s hardly a leaf left outdoors for me too shoot. These are pictures from the summer that I got down to postprocessing only now. As to the bushes across the bridge, I don’t think I’m returning there now, but I’ll revisit in summer to see how the greenery is overtaking the bridge!

      1. ohhh…my pleasure πŸ™‚ I am sure there is capacity for happiness there somewhere….I imagine by summer the bridge may be hard to find….but something to look forward to…

        1. It’s true that I occasionally approach to a state similar to happiness, such as when I grab my poor cat and press her on my face. On my defence, she doesn’t protest. The bridge is my plan for summer, but now I can’t wait for some snow to finally appear. I got few autumn photos due to bad weather conditions, so I hope to get some winter snaps with snow.

          1. Me too! Other years there had been snow in November already, this year it’s been too bad. No proper autumn to speak of and no snowy winter so far. I really don’t know what I’m going to shoot next if this is going to continue. I might need to start shooting people. With the camera. Or otherwise. By the way, your new street life photos rock!! You captured some pretty edgy guys in them! I’m almost excited…

          3. I should learn shooting people from you. Shooting like shooting, you know. And I am actually studying your technique already, as I tend to do with photos I like. I wonder what’s more likely to happen in these parts: snow or people? I’ll see…

          4. Now it is my turn to *blush* hard! I have so much to learn also, shooting people is addictive and I am always wanting to do more, hard to stay in the shadows so I constantlly fear i might upset someone…certainly looking forward to seeing more from you…and I have never really tried macro so I can learn from you….

          5. Yes, shooting people indeed is addictive, thing next thing you know is you’re a mass murderer. Anyway. I still haven’t figured out what the laws of this country concerning shooting people on the street are, but even if it’s legit, I don’t like having people’s faces in the photos just in case they mind that. So I sneak around behind people’s backs for my shots and pretend I’m shooting something else. Creepy.

          6. I have been getting braver more recently (crazier?) so mass murder is looking more likely…i also have a lot of back shots…now i have a lot of rubbish shots take from waist level, usually at an angle with several body parts missing or mutilated….

  3. I know this is probably cruel but the header photo just makes you want to spilt open the bud to reveal the flower 😣
    LOL to the comment from andy on you exploring the wilderness beyond the bridge.

    1. Hahaha… πŸ˜€ No, this is not cruel, this is perfectly natural and that’s what I’d do myself! But I didn’t, I was thinking it would be a bit perverse to actually do it to the flower… Thank you for assuring me that my violent plant killing drives are normal πŸ˜‰

    1. Now I’m blushing at your compliment and I’m as red as my laptop. In fact, there are just a few photos that accidentally turned out well in my numerous macro shooting sessions. I still don’t know what I’m doing and only get a good shot by chance plus a lot of postprocessing πŸ˜‰ But I am of course glad that you enjoyed these!

    1. Oh why, thank you! It’s more chance than talent, but I keep on trying. I sort of enjoy rolling on the ground in the garden, getting filthy and shooting macro plants πŸ™‚

      1. I don’t mind the snow … it will look great afterwards. As long as it doesn’t blow away from the bows and branches, it might make for some nice winter photo πŸ™‚
