Shadow shot sunday - Тінi фотографія неділя



If I was a spider princess, she said, I would spin webs the color of sky & catch drops of sunlight to give to children who watch too much TV & then everyone would remember to come outside to play. If I was a spider princess, she said, things would be different.

Songs to herself



She waved at all the people on the trains & later,
 when she saw they didn’t wave back,
 she started singing songs to herself & it went that way
 the whole day & she couldn’t remember having a better time in her life.

Winter will come...



Friday Five and Gratitude

I


Last week we had some bright days.
 If during the morning rain and gray had passed, the sun came out.
I am very grateful for each of these light hours and have enjoyed them.

  II

Hope, you had a nice and harmonic Thanksgiving. 
In Germany we don't it celebrate.
It seems to me we have ever much less holidays than in the States.
Less reasons for families to come together.
But for people which have not big family (like me) is that ok.

III

Of course, Christmas casts its shadow and I viewed the Christmas exhibition of an florist.
Many beautiful things.
I can not buy no one of it, but I am happy to see that all.

We are at the beginning of winter, but the geraniums bloom still on my rooftop.
1-2 ° frost they can bear. Only when it gets colder and permafrost, I put them in the dark cellar.
Where the begonias are already. Because they are more sensitive.

I still rejoice in the flowers and am grateful for all the beauty that I could see this year.
I am grateful to my eyes yet can see, even if gotten worse again.
I am grateful for my beloved - he's a wonderful person.
That I have enough food and a warm house.
Food for cat and clothing and so many books.
All this is not natural for me.
I am thankful for quiet time now. And for every new morning.
 I am thankful for so many amazing poems and songs.
And for some wonderful sounding languages (like Russian, Ukrainian, Polish... )



V

Last but not least a photoseries, what I call "The moving cat".
Really it's more "the moving camera", because it was to dark for photos without stand.
My dearest took some pictures of me for one of this outfit memes and the cat came to us.
Images are blurred and shaky, but I think they show movement and somehow beautiful.

Have a nice weekend all.

Geraniums in november




We have the end of november, cold and rainy days.
But the geraniums on my roof terrace still bloom.








Behind the hedge...


... is a lot of stuff.








The small courtyards behind the downtown buildings are often limited not by walls or fences, but by hedges. This produces good privacy from the neighbors and gives the impression of greenery in the smallest space - there are often only a few square meters.
Here is the courtyard of an little flowershop, filled with lovely decoration things.

And here is the front door of the shop
