Beautiful Springtime – Photos

Finally it’s time again. You can throw your winter coat and thick sweater behind you and enjoy the sun and nature.

Of course don’t forget the camera and photograph the colours of spring.

All the photos above were taken in the park. The next one I found on my way home at a shop in a flower pot. I just liked the colors and had to photograph it 🙂

I hope my photos bring you some spring mood into the house ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Needed things for sewing – Photos

Today I actually would have had my first sewing course – day this year.

But I had something else in mind.

However, in order to do something with my favourite hobby today, I had the idea to photograph a part of my sewing supplies.

Yes, I have also photographed needles and scissors, but I have then decided for more colorful motifs here.

Here you go 🙂

Happy New Year – Photos

Happy New Year-2

Happy New Year-1

Happy New Year-3

I wish you all a Happy New Year.

I had prepared so well for the fireworks with my camera. But then came – almost nothing.

That was so disappointing, because I was looking forward to good photos.

Apparently most people bought firecrackers, which make hellish noise to greet the new year, but are unfortunately nothing to photograph.

Unfortunately the fireworks this time were very far away. Last year I had it right in front of my house. This time I only had the stupid firecrackers in front of my house.

Next time I will put definitely my bigger lens to the side, so that I can change fast. I think with 100mm or even more I would have got better photos.

If you want to know which settings I had on the camera, here are the dates:

Camera: Canon 5DII
Lenses: 24-70 2.8L
Focal length: 70mm
Iso: 100
Exposure time: 6 seconds
Important: Tripod

 

Hoarfrost photos

Today I was at my best friend’s and my godchild’s to give them my Christmas presents. And of course to also get presents hihi
They live a few miles from me.
When I arrived at their place I saw that there was hoar frost everywhere on the trees and plants.

Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me but only my mobile phone to take photos. When I was back home I had hoped that I had hoarfrost too, so I could take better photos, but there was nothing there. Too bad.

There you can see what a few miles for a difference make. The air at the house of my friend is more humid because of the stream nearby, her house is a little more open with more wind. My house is in the middle of the city.

On the photos you can see what cold, humid air and wind create for works of art. It looks like every plant suddenly got needles.

Even cobwebs suddenly look like works of art

I would go there again to take real photos, but I saw in the garden after a few hours that the hoarfrost has changed, that the beautiful shape got lost.

December 23rd – My Advent calendar

December 23rd - My advent calendar

Advent, advent, a candle is burning
First one, then two, then three, then four,
Then the Christ Child is standing in front of the door.

OMG, is this really the fourth Sunday of Advent?

Time has raced. Fortunately I did everything I wanted to do.

I also sewed presents but unfortunately I forgot to photograph them before I gave them as gifts.

Edit:

If you look at all 4 photos with the candles on the Advent wreath, you will see that it has gone from very bad on the first photo to almost perfect on this one. The first photo took so long that it was already dark outside. The other two I had taken during the day and looked better.
The trick is to spotlight. I had wondered all the time why the photo looked so bad in the beginning and then googled how to photograph candles.
So I bought small studio lamps for the last photo and lightened the motive with the candles. And voilà it worked 😀

 

December 1st – My advent calendar

I love December with the advent season, the smells of cookies and fir, the lights. Everything.
I also love the christmas gospel. I have already had it read to me as a little girl and still enjoy reading it today…
I believe that a lot of people all over the world do.

That is why I will make my Advent calendar international. On almost every day the beginning of the Christmas Gospel in another language.
I hope you like my idea 🙂

December 1th- my advent calendar

Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world…

 

For about 2 years I have been collecting decorations of a certain brand.
Meanwhile it has become so much that I could decorate 3 houses hihi

Three weeks ago, I happened to find this figure in a shop. You can use it to change the number cubes every day in December.

That gave me the idea to create my own online advent calendar – with photos.
So for each day I take a photo that I want to use for the calendar.
Among other things also pieces of my collection.

For clarification: I only photograph pieces I own. I don’t advertise the company or sell the objects.

I just love all the things I bought and I think it can be nice photos for an advent calendar ❤ ❤ ❤
