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 😉

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 – 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!

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

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.

Bridge

Bubble

Life is nothing but a bubble, a valuable and sensitive one.
It sometimes feels, like we all walk around on a bridge, over troubled water…

When you’re weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I’ll dry them all
I’m on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I’ll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Paul Simon

There is a place where adults and children gather to blow bubbles. It`s amazing to see how all these bubbles, somehow, build bridges of fellowship between so many people. There´s so much joy between everyone and it`s funtastic to take part. Conclusion, we need more bubbles in our world, to build more bridges of joy between each other.

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.
