  • Flower of The Day

    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

  • Those Eyes

    Those Eyes

    Cyprus has beautiful places like golden shores, ancient ruins, and meadows. But it is also known for the large number of stray cats on its streets. The island is often called the “island of cats” because there are more cats than humans. While these cats are friendly and lovely, the growing population of stray cats…

  • 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.

  •  The Bird

     The Bird

    I rarely photograph birds, they are often too far away and usually, I carry my system camera with a macro lens. But sometimes it feels a bit too heavy to carry around when I’m out with my doggies. This time I had my new, much smaller and more handy Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ200 with me. My…

  • 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

    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

    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

    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

  • Asymmetry


    This week’s theme at Lens Artists is asymmetry hosted by Donna. Last week, the theme was symmetry, but does that mean asymmetry is the opposite? Or maybe it’s not that simple? Asymmetrical balance in photography means that the elements in the composition don’t have the same visual weight. Despite this uneven distribution, the photo still…

  • November Mix from Cyprus

    November Mix from Cyprus

    This little creature was sitting on the glass table in our gazebo the other day. A grasshopper and not a cricket or the other way around. Crickets tend to have long antennae, grasshoppers have short ones. It’s November but the almond tree doesn’t care and blooms anyway. Although I have only seen one tree that…
