Shaking off the cold

Image
I feel better after drinking a lot of tea, eating hot soups and fruit. I still have a rough voice especially if I speak loud and for some long(er) time.
I'm experimenting with vitamins and tea... and of course, photography ๐Ÿ˜.
This thing... Is not kompostas the fruit are fresh (as oposed to cooked).A friend told me it's still a tea but some kind of... well something different and interesting. Ok I cold my experiment raw tea; or roar/ tea as the pronunciation is quite the same (english is not my native language, so feel free to laugh at me joke) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ingredients:
pears (speaking of which, the last time I ate pears I was probably in my teens) (?)grapestea baghot water
Enjoy it while you edit the photos and upload them on  different photo-challenge-websites...

I got cold. Thank you climate change ๐Ÿ˜“
As I was once cold 4 1/2 years ago (since I live in Germany) and I could shake off the cold with some tea and lemon, I tried it today too.
Only one exception: marmalade added... well what's left of it, of course.
Note: you can do the same thing using honey instead of marmalade ๐Ÿ˜‹ Yummy!
Pour hot water; lukewarm water will get cold faster because the marmalade jar is bigger than a regular cup of tea.
At this point I had to add water first, then photograph. I had a cinematic idea รก la Peter MCKinnon, but my lens got covered with steam from the hot water.
Peter, how HOW do you do all your amazing stuff?! ๐Ÿ˜
Lemon is optional, but it works miracles.
I also decided to (re)use the jar lid. Too much of throw-away in this world...
Plus, this method may keep your tea hot/warm for longer.
If you decide you don't want to keep a marmalade jar in your house, at least, please recycle it correctly.
 If you are healthy, stay healthy; if you are cold, get…

One photo per hour

I found this scrolling through Jonna Jinton's blog post from 2011(!). Her blog is amazing! I was curious about her life in a small village so I read every blog post she wrote.
As I try to become a better photographer and try to promote my hobby as much as I can, EFIT seems like a good challenge. No, I am not talking about photographing private life or selfies every minute, but a better structure of my blog and a chance to use my photo camera even more; and of course, reaching out to as many readers as possible. ☺EFIT has also blog schedules, so there's no danger of spamming.
I think I can make it. Looking forward to it.
Now I should get some sleep.
Good night!


Rant about Facebook

Image
Hello my readers,
(Wow! I didn't expect to have some reads on my newly started blog. I don't even know where my blog will end or what and when I will write next ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜€)
good to see you in 2019!
And now my rant about Facebook: I tried to share my husband's post on different music groups and guess what...
My post got banned by Facebook for whatever reason I couldn't understand. I also couldn't undo this "mistake" as faceFace's report options have become a chore.
In other words, I try to do as much as I can with the power and knowledge I have. It's not much I guess but it's better than nothing.
Technology is becoming increasingly difficult. It makes me even angrier as I studied technology in highschool. I should deal with this stuff, right?
Yeah. No. I feel older and older day by day trying to deal with things that make me feel guilty for not knowing how to cope with them.
How do you cope with such feelings?

New Year's Eve without fireworks

Image
I don't know how laws are regarding fireworks where you live, but there are people in Germany who want to deny fiewworks because of fine particles in the air (polution and all that).

Of course I  heard also about animals fearing the sound of the fireworks;

but then I also think there must be some stray dogs since very long time.; and the Chinese fireworks even longer...

Anyway a Facebook event (you don't have to know German language to stop buying fireworks for next year) brought me to an idea: not buying fireworks, but photographying them.
As there are still a lot of people to buy and enjoy fireworks, I settled for photographing the fireworks (and some people?)
How would New Year's Eve without fireworks look like?
Happy New Year!

throwback thursday of the year and new year resolution

I decided I don't want to pay for unnecesary services to make my blog look professional. It's not about the domain name but the servicess you offer. Right now I am still at the beginning of my blogging journey so I barelly have views on my blog. I am not chasing fame or followers that will unsubscribe in a few days. I read tips and tricks about how to be a professional blogger but this is how trust in a blogger is shattered; those who chase the money and the followers. I'd like to focous on my work as hobby photographer and writer instead of how much money I could lose. There are people who are quite famous for totally different thing(s) on Instagram or any other account without paying for a professional website.


I also decided that less is more when it comes to social media accounts. So that's why I decided to keep it simple.

While writing this blog I realized I don't have photos that define my lifestyle: like I didn't take any photos to document our marriage.…

Haiku

Image
Isn't it wonderful how ideas pop from anywhere around us?
Just yesterday evening I read one of my favorite magazines. The strange but wonderful thing is: I got an idea for a haiku by just reading the main titles of the a-tempo magazine; and just checking out the grammar, of course (unfortunately the Internet version of the magazine doesn't show the titles I've seen on the paperback version).
The first version of my Haiku is of course in German:
Am Rande der Nacht die Tรผr angelehnt an Deinem Licht I also translated it in English and I like the English version just as much as I like the initial version.

Where do you gather your ideas from? What inspires you?
