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 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 ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Colors of fall, simply beautiful – Photos

Is summer really over?
If yes, then the weather doesn’t know that hehe
Last weekend it was so warm that I went out only with shirt and shorts to take photos.

I wanted to make the first fall photos in the sun, because there all colors shine and fall shows itself from its most beautiful side.

I took the first photo at a small tower. It was covered over and over with red leaves.

Fall 2018-7

Not only have I enjoyed the sunny day, also bees were still on the way

Fall 2018-1

Whether these are fall flowers, I don’t know. But the colors were simply fantastic.

Fall 2018-6

Fall 2018-3

But also some trees have their colourful leaves visible from afar

Fall 2018-2

I wonder why the leaves do not turn from green directly to brown …
Is it nature’s help to tell the animals that, for example, bears have to put on winter fat, or birds have to fly to warmer regions?
Or is it just for people like me so we can take great photos? Hihi

I love the sea (photos + film)

 

 

 

I love the sea.

No matter how the weather is, whether hot or cold, windy or rainy  I love to be at the sea.

Never before have I had the few days of vacation as needed as this summer.
In my last post I wrote that I had a construction site IN my apartment for 10 weeks.

Every year we went cycling by the sea, to a different place almost every day.

But not this time!

We took hours of walks by the sea, slept late, made no plans for the next day.
For a week we simply rested, enjoyed the sea, calmed our nerves.

Of course I took photos again. I think I have a million photos of the sea now, but still I take new photos every year hihi

I took this photo the first day. It was very cloudy and windy, perfect for kiting

Beach 2018 - 01

Here my favourite motive at the sea, waves that break

Beach 2018 - 04

We passed the bike to walk up the stairs to the beach.
No, that wasn’t our usual way to the beach. We went that way for the photos. As you can see on the photos, the weather was perfect

Beach 2018 - 05

Here you can walk up the steps in the middle of the dunes.
The brown is not withered but a special form of the plant Ericaceae. This plant can be found all over the dunes because it can grow on sandy soil and thus prevents the sand from being blown away.

Beach 2018 - 02

And now the best look of all when you’ve gone up all the steps. Down the stairs to the beach.
When I was standing on top, I made a little video with my mobile 🙂 The noise in the video is the wind and the sea

I hope you like the view too ❤ ❤ ❤

Baby animals in the zoo (photos)

I went to the zoo – again. Now is exactly the right time to go to the zoo because you can see many baby animals.
Weather was not so good because it was very hot and humid.
But to see the baby animals was worth it.

This baby lion was the first thing I took pictures of today.

Lion baby

The tiger is not a baby but he has not let the lion baby out of his sight! Maybe he thought it would be his next meal hehe (and I liked this photo)

Tiger

Bear mommy never let her baby out of her sight. If the little one went anywhere, Mama would run after the baby

Mama bear with baby

I felt sorry for the little monkey. He was playing alone with the sticks the whole time. No grown-up monkey came to him once…

Baby ape

The scene with these monkeys was funny. At first I thought the little guy wanted to drink. But he bent over and over again and looked at the water. Maybe he wanted to know who the monkey was looking at him in the water.

I have no idea what the bird is called but these huge Feet!!!!! 😀

Bird with huge feet

This little calf must have been very young. It was very unsteady and fell into a small ditch. Luckily, nothing happened.
