on film

in my mum's garden
from boxes
A walk
In the forest
in the forest
an old wine bar
on the market

I see the blossoms of the trees everywhere and they are so beautiful that I always tend to take pictures of them. They are something you wait for when the Winter doesn't seem to end. I didn't have the feeling this year...but I still appreciate them so much, these delicate blossoms..

I have my pentax with me here at home and I hope I can capture some of the moments here to look at them when I am back in Australia

# 1 A tree in my parents garden
#2 A beautiful flower in my mums little garden. I always loved their shape and remember that as a kid I pressed the hearts with my fingers and they made little noises as if they keep air in them
#3 I passed that lion my sister made when she was in kindergarten and it hangs there every since she brought it home. When you are away for a while and come back you realize so many things which have always been there but suddenly grab your attention. Like familiar noises, such as certain corners in the house make when you walk on wooden floorboards or open a door...or the birds which sing so differently here than they do in Australia
#4 I stumbled over this box in which I kept letters, notes or all sorts of was like finding a treasure box
#5/6/7 these are from the walk through the near forest with my sister. The forest was so green and glowing with the sun making its way through the trees
#8 In the city - one of the old wine bars
#9 The weekly market in the city

I wish you all some nice and relaxing days off....

take care

I landed savely in Germany after a long long trip. It is so good to be back and it seems that Spring shows all its best sites since I am here -It is so sunny and beautiful.

#6 enjoyed a bavarian pretzel
#7 and the view into a café
#8 a little store

From Autumn to Spring

From Autumn to Spring

You know there is a way to jump from Autumn to Spring, to move your birthday into the opposite season, to go anywhere...It is possible...but it often means when you do this that you are far away from what you call home, where you grew up or lived before ... and that you leave back people you love and that things can happen you can't control...and it makes you really sad and you feel how your mind starts traveling...
I will fly home for two weeks on Saturday and I will be already too late when I get there....but you know it will be good to come home...
I look forward to seeing so many dear people I missed too often the last couple of months...

I hope you are all well!
