There are so much. Like a bud above that turns into a beautiful flower! Or the slow and natural transformation of something once shiny.Nature, an old church and all details look completely different when reflected and in water.

Click on the link below and you’ll find lots of transformations from other participants.

CFFC – Letter N

Nature lovers, on hiking in Malta in November.Natural look. Neat and so lovely, but nearly too close.

CBW: Weather

I love color, need color and can`t live without color around me, but I also like challenges.
That`s why I take part in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge and this week the topic is Weather.This was a beautiful day last spring here in Malta. As always this time of year, there were lots of yellow and reddish flowers among all greenery. In black and white, it looks very different.Our terrace on the 6th floor a rainy day in October.Sunset with storm clouds.Sunshine, warmth and enjoyment by the Mediterranean Sea in July 32+.

WPC – Temporary

Ain’t everything temporary? Like the flames of a fire…  … or reflections in the Sea. Like moments of joy and fellowship.
Nothing lasts forever. It’s about catching the golden grains in our daily lives. To see, to feel and enjoy…

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Pets

Once again I take part in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge and the theme for this week is ”Pets”!  It suits me well because I now have my own pet. My funny silly, lovely little Fanny, almost four months old.

There are lots of wild cats in Ġnien Indipendenza/Independence Garden here in Sliema. Mutual harmony between dog and human being.

This blog is not going to be a Dog-blog but now and then I’ll post pics of my little puppy.
She`s now a part of my everyday life.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge

Here`s my entry for this week Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge. Just for fun 🙂 This week it’s about distance. At a distance, you would barely notice the little bird.At a distance, you can focus on what you want.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge / In the Distance.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge

This is a great fun and for me a completely new challenge. To convert from color and use only black and white.An indoor garage here in Kuching with the shadow of a man walking from the entrance.

This is a spiral staircase inside a very old mill completely made of stone in a small town in Malta. This image was taken inside a train in Singapore. This photo is not exactly the same as the one above. Just a small difference in light and contrast but I know that even a small difference can mean a lot and that’s
what I’ll try to learn in Cee’s weekly Black & White Photo Challenge.

CB&W: Indoor Walkways, Hallways, Elevators etc..

Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

For this week’s challenge, we’ll make use of sizing, placement, and scale in our photos.
Here you can choose in which scale you want to watch the view of Spinola Bay in Saint Julian’s, Malta. The aircraft flying over Manoel Island in Malta looks more like a black spot. While we stand on the ground, hundreds of people are sitting inside that black spot watching the view, seen in a completely different scale.

CFFC Letter H – Happy

This happy bridal couple were photographed by a professional photographer along the Sarawak river here in Kuching. Happily, I always carry my camera with me and couldn’t resist taking some pictures myself.Happiness for me, among many other things, is to live on the small island of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea. Where it never gets too cold and you never see snow. Pure happiness at Valletta Carnival in Malta February 2016.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge / Letter H – Topic for this week is Happy

 

 

WPC – Pedestrian 2

A pedestrian on the new bridge here in Kuching. It’s not open to the public yet, what we see as a silhouette is a worker. I don’t think the bridge will open before we leave and fly back home to Malta. Just over a week left.
Pedestrians in another part of the world. An early morning walk in the old town of Stockholm, Sweden. I always try to spend some time in this part of Stockholm when I visit my hometown. Soon I’ll be there.

WPC – Pedestrian

The Golden Anniversary Pedestrian Bridge Project at the Kuching Waterfront
is almost completed.

It lights up in different colors at night, is very curvy, which makes it much longer to walk from one end to the other and the pillars are shaped like a Hornbill. Kuching is located in Sarawak and is called ”Land of the Hornbills”. I really do looking forward to be a pedestrian on that bridge when it´s completed.

WPC – Windows 2

Yesterday, when I went out for a walk with my camera, I thought about what really gives a city its character. How much can windows and architecture tell about a city. These are all from Kuching in Borneo, Malaysia. Sarawak has it all – diversity, nature and adventure, also called ”The Land of Hornbills”.

This is my second entry in this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge. You’ll find my last post here.

Leaf and Greenery

In Borneo, where I am now, there are no specific seasons. There’s the ”Landas” the rainy season but it always rains in the tropics, more or less. Compared to Sweden where the differences between the seasons are much more distinct, spring, summer, fall and winter. Also in Malta but not as clear as in northern part of Europe.
Tropical rainforest, layered of compact greenery.Hiking in the forest where the ground are layered of withered leaf. The leaf only change color when they fall off. Not like in Sweden where they fall off after changing color. That can be a real beautiful magnificence! ……In Malta, where I live, there’s almost no forest left...
Layered and twisted texture, as the seasons, depending on where in the world you are.

This is my second contribution for this week’s Daily Post WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
Just for fun!

WPC – Layered

In this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge we will focus on the interplay of depth, density and texture. Immediately I got some pictures in my mind that I then found in my archive.Depth, density and texture…

Water is layered by surface, density, space, transparency and texture. Water is also a homogeneous volume, but this is my interpretation of this week’s challenge, even though my thoughts are totally wrong in reality. This is not a race, it’s just for fun 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge – Waiting

Photographing insects with macro often means waiting for the perfect moment.

WPC Structure

Even an ordinary flower..…has an exciting structure.As well as shown in this close-up of a hibiscus.Structure of a feather. This one is actually not larger than a little finger nail.A completely different but still, a kind of structure. A construction, a creation.

My husband’s secret project. It’s not really done yet… Look at the wings on this little beetle! We easily shoo them away and forget to watch closely.

The last picture is from my archive while the others were taken today.

WPC Macro and Color, Soo Shiny!

Failure is success in progress! Ooh, Shiny 😅Even a colorless can appear as shiny through a delightful detour. Colors among our flowers and a welcome little visitor gives delight and diversion.A fly can distract in two different ways. Choose the positive one…

WPC Distraction

In this week’s Photo Challenge I’ll try to find what´is distract me and makes me feel ”Oh, shining!”?

This flower grew when I planted a bunch of chives that I bought at the supermarket. They have already started fading. But yet, oh, shine! I will certainly find more that distracts me during this week.

WPC – The four Classical elements

Fire, but rather a fiery sunset. Water, reflections from boats. Earth, with patterns created by a tiny crab.Air, and a volatile little bubble.

Weekly Photo Challenge / Elemental

Weekly Photo Challenge – Textures

In this weeks challenge we will focus on the tactile element of the objects we shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality, softness, smoothness, graininess or any other texture we find interesting or, a combination of several.

As usual, I couldn’t choose only one. All pics are taken in Italy, Sweden or Malta. It´s a mixture of walls in different shapes and textures. Walls made of bricks, stones or wood. Smooth, hard or painted in soft/strong colors. If you take your time and really look at all pictures, you will find one that is not a wall 😉 Enjoy!

WPC Satisfaction

There are so much in this picture that makes me feel satisfied, besides holding the camera. Memories, the sense of freedom, the amazing landscape and the natural colors of the great ocean as well as the blue sky.
Road Trip California in 2014, a trip that gave me great satisfaction and lots of lovely memories.”A journey of thousand miles must begin with a single step and every exit is an entrance to somewhere else…”

Rock formations

An unusual rock formation found in Bako National Park in Borneo, Malaysia.
Looks a bit like the profile of a face and I like the different colors of the stone.

These are from the same place, and I have shown them before. But still, so unusual and unique.

Post a Day / A Summer Evening In July

The Marsovin Summer Wine Festival in Hastings Garden, Valletta, took place last weekend.Buy a glass and then you can taste different kinds of wines while enjoying the sunset. The real Wine Harvest Festival here in Malta takes place in August in Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta and shouldn’t be missed.

Beach life…

Some pics from last weekend in Golden Bay, one of Malta’s few sandy beaches. Most common along the Mediterranean are rocks made of limestone. The special honey-yellow stone, which sometimes looks like sand.It’s now 26 degrees in the Mediterranean.Watermelon, sweet and seedless…The sun is strong, the waves are high, the sand is soft and this is…

Beach life…

A blend of everyday life

Inspirerad av Mia och av Sanna förstås, tänkte jag hoppa på Gems Weekly Photo Challenge. Eftersom jag inte varit med från början väljer jag ut ett antal teman som passerat och fortsätter därefter att följa temat veckovis. Men bara om jag tycker det är skoj, enjoy 🙂

Varje bild representerat ett tidigare tema. Klicka gärna på bilden för fullformat. Ordningen är slumpvis.
Each image represents a previous theme. Click on a image to enlarge. The order is random.

The theme for this week is BOAT, which I might post later on, before Sunday.

Light and water

Water and Light can transform the ordinary into something beautiful but are also sensitive to changes.The blue water as well as the light in the Mediterranean Sea are constantly changing.
Even the stone and the ladder, but the sea, will in the long run, remain the same.

Gozo’s lost icon…

Where the Azure Window once stood… …there is not much left today.
This is what I saw when I visited Gozo last weekend.

I felt sad when I read about it, after so many times I have visited The Azure Window on the island of Gozo in Malta, which also was a major tourist attraction. Something once created by nature after decades, also became destroyed by the nature. It collapsed completely in stormy weather on 8 March 2017.These are memories and history…. …Gozo is still a small gem in the Mediterranean.

Bättre macrobilder har jag tagit men visst ser huvudet lite underligt ut, som om biet bär öronlappar.

  I`ve taken better macro photos than this one, but it looks as if the head is a little weird, as if the bee is wearing ear flaps.
