Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

I’m actually happy with this week’s challenge: Unfocused, for it means I don’t have to delete this photo! An unfocused picture of two focused-on-eating cats. Seems like they wanted to blend in with the background.

Home Away From Home

Spring in Portugal! Last week the V-man and I caught a plane to the south. To the sun and warmth. Well, skip the last part, for it was around 16 Celsius. Skip the first part too by the way, for there were plenty of clouds, rain and thunderstorms. On the other hand, it immediately gets warm whenever the sun burns her way through that gray, oppressive blanket. And clouds are really photogenic!

During this short Portuguese holiday, we stayed in the wooden cabin that you can see in the third picture. Three years ago, we helped building this oasis of peace for dear friends of ours. And it has become a home away from home.

All of these pictures are taken with my iPhone, a pro-active device that fucked up helped me tremendously by switching on the option ‘Burst’. I have no conscious memory of ordering it to do that, but the result is that the photos are small: 640×480. I still like them though, especially after playing with a few modifying options. Of my own choosing this time 😉

These are pictures of our walk along the Atlantic Ocean near Cidade on Sunday, April 29th. I will post more during the next weeks.

Thank you so very much, M&M, for letting us stay once again *hugs*
