it has been a while since last time. i had to login this time and thought for a moment what was the password.
i was blogging regularly all the spring, then was the summer, holidays and life was slow and good. then holidays were over and school started. we started to try to focus on the usualy routines but then it really got very warm and summery here. we went to the beach almost every day after school/work and made our best to enjoyed every sunny day. many people here did so as well. you just never know how long good weather will last here. my blog was the last thing on my mind. i was taking photos, but not as much as usually. i reall focussed on enjoying summer and warmth and sunlight.
then it all was over. it got colder and darker and I was suddenly funcioning best 8.00 – 16.00 but not so good after that. It takes time to get used to busy schedule and have some energy left after everything neccessary is done.
i have lots of photos. i hope i will have time and energy to edit, organize and to share.
Hello, how are you, long time no posting. Today is a long post with many photos. as I promised earlier, I am sharing some pictures from one of our hiking trips. we went there in the begining of summer.
the mountain top is 565m over the sea level, and it took us 5 hours to get to the top and back. The whole trip of 10 km was one of the longest trip i had taken my kids to. One should be able to do it in a few hours, depending how determined you are to go fast. We were two adults (wanting to go fast), one teenage boy (very good at going fast) and two 6 year old girls (not interested to go fast but interested to play, run around a lot and stop often to drink and eat some swet treat). we made many small stops and one longer on the top.
from the top of the mountain it opens a nice view over the whole city. I messed up with my film camera settings and most film photos are overexposed. I take many photos indoors on that sunny that day i didn’t realise how much more light was in that open space. i tried to edit them in photoshop by adjusting curves a bit. it is much better now, and though i am still not happy with the colors i have something to remember anyway. and i have learned a lesson to check my camera settings next time (will most likely to forget it anyway).
it has been a nice and long summer holidays, a lovely thing that is coming to end soon. we travelled a bit, rested a lot, slept as much as we wanted to, cooked proper meals and managed some renovation work in the appartament. i really feel relaxed and am able to enjoy life more. I have lots of photos that i am going to share later. For now, some quiet random still life photos, taken during past few months.
