Just a frozen moment…

“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you – sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.”
― Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium

Cee´s Fun Foto Challenge: Lines(1)

Imagen

This week Cee´s challenge is about lines…
I have been trying to upload some pics and it has been impossible…Since yesterday evening I have been trying different solutions..Do this, do that, clean your cache, clean your cookies…
But nothing has changed yet… .I hate these situations…I hate computers…I hate…..

Well…At least I think I have discovered a way I can upload ONE single pic…

..In this moment, my forehead and my heart are full of cranky lines..But as I have been busy with all this, I did not have  enough time to make up myself…So forget about a pic of my face…

Still…Here is a pic of some other lines of my property…

Cee´s Fun Foto Challenge: Colorful Monotone

Well, well…This week Cee´s challenge is quite interesting….

I have been reading the article about Monotone and Monochrome schemes…

I have found some Monotones….

But, still, I think it touches me more the Monochrome scheme….

Please, go here and look at more contributions….

Cee´s Fun Foto Challenge: Photogragh Something New

This week Cee´s  Challenge is something special… Pics must be NEW and, somehow, DIFFERENT..

She, very kindly, gives some tips that can facilitate our work…One of them is to sit in a room for 15 minutes and, for sure, we will be surprised “at what we come up with”…

Ok, I will follow the advice…

Hmmmmm…Here I am…In the kitchen…

Hmmm….May be if I look through my room´s window?

Hmmmm….I should go down the Lounge….I can water my birthday present in the mean time….

I should look around…

And plaf!!! Here it is….You are lucky this is just a post…225 pics!!!!! It has been probably one of my funnier days for ages!!!

Cee´s Fun Foto Challenge: “Pets”

Well, well, well…This week Cee´s challenge was received with a lot of joy by Sigh and by me…Woof woof…Guau, guau… (this is Spanish for woof!)

If you have been following my blog from the beginning, you know Sigh has been the main character many times…

She is a Border Collie, 4 years old (her birthday was last Thursday, BTW!)…She came to our house three years ago,  and she changed everything in a few days…We absolutely fell in love with her,…And, if you want me to be honest, I think it happened the same to her…

She likes going running in the country with C., playing with sticks, her stuffed skunk, tennis balls…. And she knows how to do many tricks. Turn right, turn left, sit pretty, stand on her hind legs and walk, just to name a few. She learns very quickly, as Border Collies are quite intelligent.

She sheds her fur twice a year..,And when this happens, it is like if we were living in the  Arizona desert, because the house is full of tumbleweeds…

She listens carefully to everything I say…And then she does what she wants anyway…

Ladies and gentlemen (as Stephen Kelly says), here she is, posing for each Season…

Cee´s Fun Photo Challenge: Orange

This challenge has been a bit difficult to me…I went out three days trying to find something orange near by…And, believe it or not, I did not find anything…I came back with a lot of pics about fall…But not what I was looking for, so I decided to dive into my old pics…And, surprise! I found orange….

I have to say NO PHOTOSHOP has been applied to the pictures…..

This is the first one…This summer there were fires everywhere…One of them was not so near (100 km away) but it was so big that the sun turned pink and orange for three days…This is its reflex in the river Bernesga, at 7:00 PM, behind my house…

I really love this pic,…To me is the proof that Nature finds its way to show us its beauty even through the most terrible moments….

Reflection of the Sunset in the Bernesga River, León….

The next one is another sunset…(I love sunsets)…This one at Petra…We were very lucky being almost alone, and the rocks, beautiful by themselves, were even more spectacular at that time of the day…

Sunset at Petra, Jordan…

The third sunset…This time inside of a nice bar, at Tombstone, Az….Because men can  not  live on bread and beauty alone….;) And as we were not on a horse, we were very well served…

Sunset in Tombstone, Az…(;))
