I have decided to publish my Summer Stock Sunday pictures on Saturday from now on, because deep inside I hate multitasking. I love Summer Stock Sunday, but I don’t want to miss Weekly Winners either because of the friends I’ve met there. I have been struggling with this for weeks now but I figured this might be the best solution in order to be able to visit everyone back.
Oh and by the way, I changed the color scheme of my blog to coordinate it with my new header. What do you think? Do you like it?
Last Thursday was one of our hottest days of Summer in Belgium. I had a pedicure appointment at four in the afternoon and I decided to walk all the way down the canal and shoot some pictures along the way.
The flowerbeds in our village are beautiful, but …
you would be amazed
by Mother Nature’s wild beauty if you care to look just a little bit closer!
Every now and then my camera looks even closer than I do! Sees things I don’t see!
Like this cobweb for instance, it came as a nice surprise!
When all I wanted was to take a picture of this little cutie!
There was a fair little bit of wind and I had to hold the flowers to make a good macro.
Bend down my knees a little to get a better perspective.
and get another macro while I was at it. I had fun!
Damn. I should have seen that reflection! Aaaah okay, maybe next time …
Up close and personal. She’s so pretty.
Busy bee …
Too bad I don’t know the names of all the wild flowers I saw. Is this a thistle?
We don’t see that very often here. I’m not sure if it’s allowed, but hey … it was HOT!
More purple beauty …
I had to be very fast to snap that last picture. It’s not as clear and crisp as I would like it to be, but still, I like the image. The cute Summer dress, the wind in their hair, the two huge handbags… But what I like most of all are the dangling feet and the flip flops.
To me this speaks of Summer …
