Bubble Fun

Blowing bubbles can be real fun.

Especially if you take your camera with you and find that dear special someone who’ll assist you in this exciting game and will make bubbles for you.

Furthermore, it is a great exercise for your shooting skills. I know it because that is how me and my man spent all afternoon yesterday.

Try it!

It’s awesome.

 

Love,

Petra

See the picture?

I’ve taken it.

It proves that I don’t write and think about food only. Sometimes I leave my kitchen for a little while to go for a trip and visit some strange places. (Hm, now that I think about that trip, I just remembered that I had a really awesome sandwich prior to taking these photos. It was yummy!)

Anyhow, in my life there surely are other issues than food that catch my attention.

Like, food photography, for example.

Oh, yeah, you’re right. That’s still very much about food.

Hm, there has to be something else that interests me. I am a sensitive and caring human being, after all.

YES, now I remembered!

The next thing I really care about are my personal issues.

They are fun!

Not!

 

For example, I like to climb onto very strange vehicles.  They carry my high in the mountains. But that’s not the issue. This one is simple to solve. I’m too lazy to walk and too eager to take nice pics from high above.

The issue that I want to talk about is my nervous breakdown that I seem to go through each time I find myself in a stressful situation.

The breakdown lasts for about five minutes.

And it’s wild.

And beastly.

And on this particular trip it started right after they had sat me in the blue chair that you see in the picture.
 
 

Right now, when I am taking this picture, I am cursing the day this insane passenger ropeway was built. I am cursing the grass below for not being more soft and cushy. I am giving my man a threatening look because he dares to breath and rock our seats as a result. And most of all, I am cursing myself for not wearing a parachute on my back.
 
 

Mere five minutes later I am the king of the world. I am enjoying the cool fresh air, I am reveling in the beauty around and I am tapping my man on the knee saying: “Lovely, huh?”.

 

I can’t reverse that thing although I know it is coming.

When the stress begins I get convinced that I am a goner any time soon.

When the five minutes have passed and I come to my senses a wide smile appears on my face and you wouldn’t find a more careless person in the whole wide world.

But those five minutes – you don’t want to be near me when they are happening.

You just don’t.

 

Which makes me think of my man right now. Poor him, he gets to be near me all the time.

Lord, bless his kind and precious heart.
 
 

I doubt this guy has his 5 beastly minutes.

Though, he might – when he meets a photographer who takes photos right IN HIS FACE.

Luckily, we were heading in opposite directions. Which is the only occasion when I dare take pictures of strangers.

I am that courageous.

Hm, I think I’ve just revealed my next issue…

A Lady

I took this picture last Saturday.

Finding a name for it was a piece of cake.

‘A Lady’.

Her presence is just so massive and heavy.

Or what?

Send Your Toys For a Vacation

Note: Although I’ve already posted this once I’ve decided to do so again since my newly established travel agency for toys needs some more marketing. Please, come and have a look at the gorgeous possibilities we offer for your teddies to enjoy…

 

My teddy has left for a holiday.

After all, he definitely deserved it – he’s been my sweetheart for such a long time.

You may be asking who he’s traveling with.

Well, it’s my new travel agency that I established recently.

I thought I should really let you know about it since you might be one of those people who would like to send their beloved toys somewhere for a wonderful trip and need that ‘someone‘ to arrange all the necessary details.

Please, feel free to enjoy the pictures from the places my teddy has visited…

First of all, it was Paris – shown in the picture above (he looks so incredibly happy there).
 
 

Then Egypt – what a wonderful place.
 
 

He was joyously excited over there.

The weather was wonderfully hot, there was a  lot of water around and even some camel riding was possible.
 
 

What a pleasure it is to spend time on a beach.

Maybe your teddy will meet his/her long lost relative there.
 
 

Is your teddy into adrenaline?

Then why not try white-water rafting?

It’s so stress-relieving.
 
 

Oh, and this is something for those who are keen on flying.

What a bliss.
 
 

Your teddy also deserves some scrumptious yet healthy food.

Yum!

All-in-all, your precious sweetie will be taken care of with the uttermost attention.

Now I’m sure all of your toy friends definitely want to go too.

For more information (or if you have any suggestions), please, contact me in the comment section.

Meanwhile, I am going to put a bit more thinking into the whole project…

I’m Back!

I’m back, I’m back, I’m back …FINALLY!

Yippee!

Yaaay!

Wheeeee!

My house sitting days are OVER!

I am nothing less than excited about going back to my old life and my old routine …and now even in a new town and in a new flat where me and my boyfriend have moved.

Today I spent the day concentrating on a very important task – walking around the flat for the whole day and watching how the sun moves in relation to my windows trying to find out which spots will work best for the thing I can no more live without – my food photography.

But every now and then my thoughts flew far away to a cute little someone I can’t stop thinking about.

It’s the baby in the picture, my little sister, my parents’ beloved sweetheart – little Georgina.
 
 


This is the baby I was looking after for almost three weeks.

Actually, it was her, a canary and a zillion of Mom’s plants.

Me and Georgina, we had the best time together. Still, there were moments when we really missed the parents. To cheer us up we needed to find various funny activities – like trying out different hairstyles for example (for Georgina, of course, I was wearing no hairstyles at all, I was channeling a nature fairy).
 
 

My parents arrived home safely.

That means that mine and Georgina’s sweet and careless days are over and we both have to start doing some proper and meaningful work.

In my case, the work consists of cooking, baking and taking pictures for my site (don’t I just have the best life ever?).

Georgina’s days, on the other hand, are filled with helping my parents with the gardening. She’s irreplaceable in this aspect (and in all other aspects, too).
 
 

Just look at how much enthusiasm, vigour and responsibility she has for the chores that looking after the garden involves…
 
 

Oh, Georgina, you are the sweetest little creature that I’ve ever met – my time spent with you was just wonderful.

I think I love you.

Of course, except for those gloomy, obscure moments when you were chasing frogs, maybe ate some of them, had a physical tremor afterward and ran after another frog as soon as the tremor was gone …that haunting stuff I hope to forget really soon…

Colorful and True

When this house-sitting mission of mine is over and I come back home I am going to have a giveaway.

I am SO going to have a giveaway!

I just can’t wait.

Though I can’t reveal exactly what the prize will be, I think I am allowed to describe it remotely in a few words. It’s going to be funny, cute, very funny, you can play with it, it resembles the subjects in the picture above but there’s much more and …have I mentioned it’s going to be very funny?

Well, you’ll see.

Back to the shot glasses above now …of course, they belong to my Mom. I suppose you might have gotten used to me chronicling Mom’s colorful stuff during these days when I am defending my parents’ house like a knight in shining armor.

These shot glasses are one of the most funny ones I have ever seen…
 
 

Not only are they wonderfully cheerful and colorful, they also want to reveal little snippets of an avid drinker’s life.

An avid drinker once said: ‘I HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM – TWO HANDS AND ONLY ONE MOUTH.’
 
 

He/She has also once been overheard revealing this memorable truth: ‘ALCOHOL DOESN’T CAUSE HANGOVERS, WAKING UP DOES!’
 
 

Oh, and I can totally feel what this person has to say: ‘I’M ON AN ALCOHOL DIET, SO FAR I’VE LOST TWO DAYS.’

In my earlier (read: brain-absent) years, there were a lot of wine diets. They involved a lot of working by day and a couple of wine glasses by night.

And let me tell you, it worked wonders.

Though I’d like to try it again these days, I can’t – my boyfriend just doesn’t allow me.

At least I have the sweet memories to cherish…
 
 

‘ONE TEQUILA, TWO TEQUILA, THREE TEQUILA, FLOOR!’

I think that if this shot glass had more space for words there would definitely be the word ‘bathroom’ standing right before the word ‘floor’.

I might or might not know a little about that …which might or might not be the reason why I am not a big fan of tequila.
 
 

Another crazy, colorful, head-spinning tour is over, dear friends.

I hope you enjoyed it.

There’s more to come soon …so stay tuned!

With love,

Petra
