    Red Colored Plant

    Today, it has been cloudy and rainy all day here in Paphos, but I won’t complain. We had 18 °C, not nearly as cold as in many other places now in December. So I took my camera and went out to my garden to find some colors and this is part of what I found.…

    Flower of The Day

    This is just one of all the plants blooming now in our garden here in Cyprus. Could it be a White Gaura? I don’t know for sure, but it is a pretty little flower. For Cee’s Flower of The Day

  • Empty Spaces

    Empty Spaces

    This week, Patti has chosen the theme. So, what is the significance of “Empty spaces” in photography? In short, it’s the area around a subject in the photograph that is left unoccupied. Sounds simple, right? I don’t understand the major differences between negative and empty spaces, they seem very small so I’ll leave it at…

  • Macro Monday

    Macro Monday

    A small selection of photos taken here in Cyprus this November. Now I lied a bit, the image of the Painted Lady was taken in Malta in 2016. I included it because I’ve seen so many recently but haven’t managed to capture any yet. So what, time doesn’t matter anyway.

  • A Green One

    A Green One

    They are not easy to see among all the greenery and not easy to photograph either. But here’s a Mantis anyway, one of the many insects that lives in our garden. These magnificent insects, with their triangular head and bulging eyes, eat moths, mosquitoes, flies, and aphids. I often see them among our passion plant…

    Everyday Thoughts

    Now it’s a fact that summer undoubtedly is over for this time here in Cyprus. The other night, there were gale-force winds and the rain poured down while the temperature dropped to 13 °C. But that doesn’t mean there can’t be warm, pleasant days ahead. Today, the sky is blue and it’s 21°C. The sun…

    LAPC – Filling The Frame

    This week, Anne is the host, and she has chosen the theme “Filling the Frame.” She explains that it means that when you want your subject to stand out, you should fill the frame. By filling the frame with your subject, you remove distractions from the background. This helps the viewers focus on your subject…

  • Mallow Skipper?

    Mallow Skipper?

    These photos may not be among the best I’ve taken of butterflies. It’s not very pretty or colorful either, but I like insects, at least most of them, and I enjoy trying to capture their details and features. Could this be a Mallow Skipper? I’m not sure as I get many different suggestions when I…

    FOTD – Wild & Ordinary

    Just an ordinary wild flower, nothing special about that, although if you look a little closer you will find an exciting little beauty which often changes its appearance and takes on a different character. For Cee´s Flower of The Day

  • LAPC – Symmetry

    LAPC – Symmetry

    This week, Sofia is the host and she challenges us to find symmetry in our photos. These are my images for the theme, and although they may not be exactly symmetrical, I at least had some fun. Symmetry in photography is a visual balance between two halves of an image that mirror each other. Symmetry is…

    Macro Monday

    These little creatures live in our garden here in Paphos, Cyprus. We have several different kinds of residents who have settled here. I like most of them, some I could do without…. As I said, some I can do without. I found this in one of my husband’s slippers. I’m rarely scared of small bugs,…
