Life is Short-…..

So….Do not lose your smile…Do not lose hope…Keep walking…

“Sunrise in Torrevieja..”
"Sunrise..."

Starting next week I will return telling you all my adventures…
In general everything has been very cool…But there are a couple of bad news…I think now I am more or less ready to come back…
I can not promise I will be able to read all the old posts…But yes the new ones…

I am thinking may be this pic suits Ailsa´s theme for this week: “Horizon…”

What do you think???

Big hug to all of you…

Unexpected: My Golden Butterfly…

Today Ailsa´s challenge is: “Unexpected”.. ..

And I am glad…Because something unexpected happened to me yesterday, while playing with a picture I took last week…

This is the original pic…

Blue butterfly

And this is what I got….

"My Gold Butterfly..."

 Life is full of expected and unexpected moments…Some  are black…Some are grey….And some more are vivid, warm and full of light…

And all of them are ours…

All of them  are part of that Odyssey that is our passage through the world….

Let´s face them…

Let´s be brave…

Let´s smile to life!

“The greatest glow of happiness…”

When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things-not the great occassions-that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness…”

Bob Hope

Happy together

When I saw this mother with her two children walking by the sea, my memories went back to my own childhood…I can not remember when I saw the sea for the first time in my life, but I remember having my mom near by…I also remember (how funny!) she knew I liked big hats, like one of the little children of the photograph…And that I enjoyed (and still I do!) playing and getting dirty with the sand…
I absolutely agree with the Hope´s quote…Happy moments glow in our minds…And, usually, they are made of simple things, colours, textures, smells… May be full of meaning only for us..And for all of those who love us!

Dedicated to all the Mums of the world…And in answer to Ailsa´s Travel Theme: “Glow”

Have a great weekend!

“I will always love you…”

"I will always love you..."

Have a great Saint Valentine´s Day!

I have been thinking…May be this pic can suit Ailsa´s challenge…Because, to me, true romance is that kind of wonderful feeling that fills your mind, your soul, your heart…

Like when we were children…Remember that summer you were on holidays and just there, by the sea, you saw the most wonderful girl you had ever seen? Remember how did you promised eternal love to her?…

Now we can look back and smile to it…But then…

“Lost in a Silver Dream…”

If you have been following my blog for a while, may be you have felt that my photographies have changed quite a lot…
Now I try more Black and White and even, sometimes , a little bit of Fine Art, Romanticism and Surrealism…
Yesterday, when I saw Ailsa´s challenge, I was feeling on that mood…So, here is my proposal for “Silver”…
Hope you like it…

Nature is luminous…

This week Ailsa´s Theme is “Illuminated“…There are many kinds of lights and illuminations but I have chosen to rescue this  image from last year, when I was trying different apertures and speeds during a winter day…..

I made a mistake, a was a bit rookie on manual focus, but the result was quite magical (I think! :))…You should click on the image to enlarge it…

“Every moment of light and dark is a miracle”

Walt Whitman

Sometimes, after failing or making a mistake, light and truth are there, waiting in silence…

🙂

Stillness…

In answer to Ailsa´s challenge: “Still“, I am going to use one of Torrevieja´s  images from last week…

When you see stillness in front of you seems that part of it goes into your soul…

Stillness

¡Qué quietas están las cosas! Y qué bien se está con ellas…

“A Rosy Sunset…”

This week Ailsa´s challenge is “Sky”…
Perfect!!! Now I have an excuse to post a picture of a serie I took last week…
I was walking with Sigh and Neo in the evening, and the nigh came early and slowly, almost surprising us…But before, may be as a way of saying “Sorry, I know it is early and you are far from home”, she offered to us this present…
We were alone in the middle of the forest….It was a magical moment….

(No photoshop has touched the image!)
Sunset...

“If I can put one touch of Rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God”

Gilbert K. Chesterton

Hope you like it as much as I did…

Have a great weekend!

Life´s too Short…

This week Ailsa´s challenge is “Short”…

I was thinking and thinking…

And reading and reading, looking for a clue…

And, suddently!, I saw this… (click on the image to fully enjoy it!!!)

“Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Listen To Me: Your Eyes are Getting Heavy…

This week Ailsa´s challenge is “Relaxing”….
And what is more relaxing than seeing relaxing around you?
Have fun, enjoy it, click on the images…And relax yourself!
.
First, I will introduce you to some wild animals from my neighbourhood…


And now, of course, to the wild beasts that took control of my home (and my life) some time ago….

Remember:

“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer”

William S. Burroughs

UPDATE!

This is what was going on while I was writing this post…
