Almost Coat Time

My Saturday in six words:

SUMMER ENDS… SLIDING INTO AUTUMN MOOD

for a larger image, please click the photo

They forced me, yes FORCED me to buy these autumn tokens at the garden center this morning (last photo). And I know the fake furry animals really are not classy or stylish… but to hell with taste: I like them! They give my living room a gentle touch of autumn and silliness. I love silliness 😉

By the way, the little one is nibbling on a real sequoia pine I took home with me from the USA last month.

Enjoy your coat this weekend! 😀

Sunday Post: Close-up

Since it has got to be Sunday somewhere already and I don’t have time tomorrow, my Sunday post will go up now.

Jake Sprinter’s assignment for this week is CLOSE-UP.

Close-ups are used in many ways, for many reasons. In filmmaking, television production, still photography and the comic strip medium a close-up tightly frames a person or an object. Close-ups are one of the standard shots used regularly with medium shots and long shots (cinematic techniques). Close-ups display the most detail, but they do not include the broader scene. Moving in to a close-up or away from a close-up is a common type of zooming. 

My favorite way of making photos! 😀 And because of that, I decided to publish multiple images. Please click on the photos for the original (larger) size.

Have a close weekend!

Upside Down

Today my world was turned upside down and inside out. Back to the core of life.

So I need to share a bit of beauty: my favorite insect, dangling upside down without the slightest effort. (Click for the original size.)

And thank you, Michael Bublé, for singing to me tonight 🙂
