Cutucando o Sol

Momentos que dão um imenso prazer! Caminhando pela rua, perto de casa, encontrei estes bulbos cheio de espinhos crescendo em arbustos quase na calçada. Nada muito interessante mas somente o Sol banhando-os por trás.  Eu me agachei no chão até que...

Bom Dia!

- 'Dia! - 'Dia! - Eu respondo mecanicamente sem mesmo levantar a cabeça ou olhar para a porta. Não é porque eu não seja educado ou não goste de pessoas; simplesmente, todas pessoas passam tão rapidamente pelo corredor que, pelo tempo...

Sunset in Montreal

What a difference 10 minutes makes when taking pictures during sunset! We happened to be at the Saint Joseph Church in Montreal, Canada, to show its splendor to a friend that was visiting us. Conveniently, I delayed as much as possible...

Hidden Somewhere…

Almost on time, rushing through the crowded streets for a shooting session, I saw this wonderful lilac in a small garden and partially hidden by a fake white fence. No other bushes, any wild flowers, just grass for company. Strange! Is...

Want to Relax?

If you want some relaxation time, just to get away from your daily chores or from problems, go out for a walk with a camera. You do not need to stay long out; 15 to 20 minutes is enough. Why for...

Spiking the Sun

Little moments that reward you so much! Walking down the street, close to home, I found these spiked bulbs protruding from the bushes almost on the walkway. Nothing really interesting but there was the Sun hitting them from my back. Why not...

Water in the Park

This Winter was really tough with lots of snow that accumulated and then melted in the beginning of Spring. Normally, the water gets absorbed by the ground but, since we got too much snow, the snow melts faster than it...

Summer Rain

There is nothing like a hot Summer day washed out by a sudden rain that comes, spills water like a bucket full of water being turned over and then, just like it came, goes and leaves that pleasant freshness in...

Bamboo Rafting

The first impression of a bamboo raft is not very pleasant as it looks pretty unstable and wobbly but once you get onboard, you feel safe and comfortable if you don't go through very rough waters.  Actually, looking closely, they...

Petra

This year, I was in Petra, Jordan, to admire the beautiful houses carved in soft stone by a mysterious people named Nabataeans. In fact, what seamed to be houses are actually tombs where members of this people were buried. The...

From Hell to Heaven

Simple facts in Life have different meanings for different people: to a poet, would a little house with a white fence a reason for romantic or delicate moments of Love? To an architect, the same house and white fence is...

Lost in Time

Lost in Time (but not in Space because I knew where it was all the time), this low-resolution image was taken while traveling to some beach in Mexico with my daughter and her boyfriend long ago. These flowers were there,...

Some Flowers.

Here in Ottawa, I have seen more fireworks in a year than I had seen in my entire life elsewhere. Right now, I am seeing this beautiful presentation of colors, explosions, beams that goes in a crescendo and I found...

Fire and Water

Canada Day, commemorated at July, the 1st, marks the start of the country called Canada in 1867 or you could call it "Canada's Birth Day", if you prefer. A series of events happens throughout the day ending with fireworks at the...

Before the Storm

I really don't like going to the doctor for whatever reason and I only do it when it is absolutely necessary which seldom happens for my own good. I am not saying that doctors or the associated medication that often...

The Big Tree

It is not only from sunny days that we can create opportunities for a nice photo. This afternoon, the day did not promise much but the sky was contrasting enough to spread light around the objects on the ground and...

Four Seasons in Yellow.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]OK, I accept the suggestion that maybe the pictures are not really yellow but gold or even brown! But, if we otherwise also accept the idea that they are metaphorically representing the four seasons, then yellow in place of any other...

Wishing Wells

There is a tradition in Germany (and perhaps in other countries as well) that a "Forest Belongs to the Soul", meaning, nobody actually possesses a forest but, at the same time, they belong to everybody. Indeed, forests in Germany are...

A Nice Smile!

There are days that things work well and there are days that the more you try being nice or the more you try being productive, things simply do not work out. Today, it was one of those days that none of...

I Could Not Resist!

As I usually do at lunch time, I was walking in the neighborhood with my camera just inspecting if anything interesting would jump on me when I saw these beautiful purple and white flowers with a delicate yellow detail almost...

The Colors of the Desert.

The common understanding that a desert is sort of yellow and all covered by sand is somewhat a cliché mostly propagated by the movies. The pictures below, taken in Israel and Jordan, show plenty of disparities in the scenario with...

Winter Scene

[vc_row row_type="row" type="full_width" text_align="left" padding_bottom="50"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]I was not really confident about this panorama taken right after the snow stopped following. The temperature was relatively high (around zero degrees centigrade) which meant that I had to be careful with the falling...

A Branch Story

Were all branches created equal? Actually, I am not talking about branches that are thick or the ones that are long or even the ones that are as curvy as a snake slithering on the sand. I am talking about the purpose...

The Music of Japan

To me, above all, Japan represents a mystique combination of elements as simple as a geisha, the pink peach flowers, the Fuji, the Buddhist temples, the very peculiar way Japanese act and think, its tradition...
