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

 

 

In the Blue

Today…

my pictures…Today, my pictures speak for themselves.This little sweetie grows fast. Fanny is now nine weeks old and I really hope she will fit into the cage during the flight between Sweden-Malta when she’s fifteen weeks! Of course she will.

Weekend pics from Malta

Click on an image to enlarge. To each image there’s a short text.Faith, a necessity whatever it is based on. Faith in the Mediterranean when the sea is calm. Or rent a bike. When I moved here seventeen years ago there were no bikes on the streets.And absolutely no apps either.

These are just a very few pics from another lovely weekend here sunny in Malta, where I chose the theme blue. More to come…

Kort och blandat

Som så ofta några blombilder och en insekt. Klicka för att förstora, till varje bild finns en kort text.Fann den här bilden i arkivet från Sandhamn i Stockholms skärgård. Vilken idyll! Sverige när det är som bäst!Med huvudstaden Valletta i bakgrunden, en idyll i sig med värmen och medelhavet så tätt inpå. Mer än så blev det inte idag. Har badat, det är fortfarande 30+ på dagarna och livet går sin gilla gång här på Malta..Avslutningsvis, Lek i tvättstugan. Nej, jag har inte sysselsättningsproblem eller brist på motiv, det är värmen.. 😉

Everyday life in Malta

Några bilder från vardagen här på Malta. Klicka gärna på en bild för att förstora.
Utmed den breda havspromenaden vid Tower Road finns det många sätt att ta sig fram. Nere vid The Strand i Sliema är turisterna många liksom de som vill sälja utfärder.Tower Road sträcker sig flera kilometer från Spinola Bay i San Giljan till Tigne och Qui si sana i Sliema. Perfekt för den som vill promenera, motionera eller bara flanera. 🙂

Monday’s mix from Malta

Watercolor in the Mediterranean Sea.A diligent visitor among our flowers.This flower doesn’t grow on our terrace and I don’t know what it’s called.

If everything goes as planned, we will go to Sweden in September to pick up our little puppy. Here you see our new family member born 13th July. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be reality, I´m so happy.

All pictures are taken by me except those on the puppy, taken by Marianne Gustavsson.

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.

Malta pics..

Examples of Malta’s architecture.

Fun in the sun at the Mediterranean Sea.And finally, one of all the beautiful flowers that bloom here on the island.

Sweet little insects…

When I take my macro lens out to the terrace and look for small insects among our flowers after I’ve watered. Then I feel satisfied, as are our plants and the sweet little insects.

Weekly Photo Challenge / Satisfaction

Photo of the day

Have just started trying to create some kind of collage. It goes quite slow but it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s fun. Practice makes perfect 😉Try again!! No, this does not work well and takes too much of my time.
Back to normal and the reality instead.

Post a Day / Motion blur..

Yes, I decided to publish a post per day, but sometimes it’s hard to find inspiration.
Here’s my postaday, anyway.Splash! A photo from my archive!
But tomorrow is a new day and my inspiration will hopefully flow like normal again.
🙂

 

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.

Splash !

Yesterday, I took the first dip of the year… …in the Mediterranean Sea, 25 degrees. But I didn’t exactly jump into the water… …the same way like this guy did 🙂

I’ll do the same next time but think I’ll wait for another year, or rather, until my next life..
😀 😐 😕

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

Några bilder från helgens besök till Malta´s systerö, Gozo. Du måste nog ta dig tid och klicka på bilderna för att de ska komma till sin fulla rätt. Till varje bild finns en kort text, ordningen är slumpvis. Welcome to Gozo 🙂

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.

Watercolor

”Sometimes all you need is a little splash of colour””Colours are brighter when the mind is open”
Reflections in the water from a boat in the harbor along The Strand here in Sliema.

Either you like what you see or think it’s a bit too messy.
Regardless, we can call it some kind of art created by nature.
