Glow


There is nothing more beautiful than the glow in someone’s eyes when they are happy. I have one specific picture in mind just right now and it’s the picture of my son when he visited the hospital right after our daughter was born and held her for the very first time. As I do not share pictures of the kids on any social media platform I will not put this picture up here either. So apologize for the tease 😉

The one thing that makes my eyes glow every time I see it (besides my children) is what the sun can do to the environment. In the middle of the day, at sunset or sunrise. How it can make things glow (not just my eyes…) and give you create warmth…

 

 

Windows

Windows fascinate me. Not just because of the view they can provide but due to the fact that you can close them, lock the world out, or yourself in, and still get what is going on. You can be locked out and still gather what happens on the other side of the window. Best part is, when the windows open. When they open up and you finally really get what is on the other side. When the air comes in, the view gets clear and you connect with the other side on a different level…

Then there  are the windows that never open but it’s okay. Because they’re meant to stay shut. They keep you safe and still provide you with the joy a beautiful view can give you…

 

Layered

I looked at the word layered and I knew immediately what I wanted to showcase here. But it’s really hard to find a picture that actually does it justice… I’m talking about the way mountain chains look from afar. Like waves, like different layers, in different shades of blue. At least here in Australia. So here we go. I still think the pictures don’t do the real beauty justice…


But of course there are different kind of layered and while I was looking for the right pictures I spotted another example for layered, this time in the form of water and clouds, rays of sunlight and waves crashing in…

Right now though I’m really looking forward to indulging in these wonderful layers ;-)…

 

 

 

Waiting

I sometimes wonder how much time we spend waiting for something, for someone. Waiting for change that just simply happens. Waiting for better times, or maybe even in a sense waiting for the good times to become worse again. We all do it.

But what is it actually good for? Nothing right? Because while we wait for that chance, for that better moment, that better someone, we are totally passive. Instead of sitting in the driver seat and take action. I challenge you to take action. Hop in that driver seat and take charge of the direction “your car” is going, the speed and the road you want to take. Do it ;-)… In the meantime here some pictures that represent waiting for me…

  • Waiting for that kiss of the person you love so much…
  • Waiting for a fantastic dish to finally be ready to eat…
  • Waiting for a message from above…
  • Waiting for the sun to set and the turtle to come back up again to take a breath of fresh air…

Corner

Can’t help thinking of the famous Dirty Dancing sentence: Nobody puts Baby in a corner… but of course this is not about Dirty Dancing, or Baby nor is it about putting anyone else in a corner. At least I hope so. Feeling cornered is not a good thing. Not in a physical way and for sure not in a mental way. It’s one of the most intimidating things ever in my books. It’s also the moment I have to really focus hard on staying rational. Thankfully it doesn’t happen that often.

Anyway, here is my take on this week’s Photo Challenge Corner. I love having candles stand in a corner as the light reflects of the walls in such a beautiful way. I wonder though, if they feel put in a corner too… 😉
