This week has been too busy, and made doubly hard by the depressing weather. What would be a better boost for a down-in-the-dumps mood than baking a sinfully calory-rich chocolate cake? Tasting it was even better!

Just got to avoid feeling guilty after indulging myself…


066/2011 at school

Another school week started. Leaving home in the afternoon, I noticed the thawing process around the school building, too. It’s quite a juggle to get in and out with dry shoes!

The sunshine is lovely, but funny enough, it also makes many of us very tired. It’s as though our bodies are not yet ready for the longer activity periods. I’ve been seriously affected for over a week now. I need an afternoon nap every day after school, and I’m at least one day behind with all my work and chores. Got to be gentle with myself, give my body and mind time to adjust to the drastically changing seasons.

Just a picture of the colour scheme outdoors. The pile of snow sitting on our garden fence, epitomizes the immobile state of winter. Nothing moves, it just is!

I couldn’t decide which photo to choose today – this one or the one below. In the end, it was the straight lines above that better depicted my lazy mood today.


#254 feeling blue

There was a chill in the air. And cleaning up, after our daughter’s farewell party to her friends last night, made me feel extra wistful. Only five days and she will have left home! Plus it’s the day of sad memories from nine years ago.

Playing with blue bottles and light depicted my mood quite well.

I was really happy about today’s Daily Shoot assignment to get me out cycling, even with a grey, overcast sky.

Welcome the new week (and holiday in the US) by making a bright cheery photo outdoors and posting it today.

I went looking for some vivid colours to cheer me up! I am not a great fan of Mondays in general, and I really needed some brightness after the totally bland Sunday I spent yesterday.

I love autumn colours, and every day now, there seem to be more of them around. One side of this giant maple is already quite spectacular. Looking at it, makes me hear some Vivaldi playing in the background, and see tiny Disney fairies flying about with their magic brushes to add more strokes of red, orange and yellow here and there.

The cycling helped – I gathered a lot of energy, and feel good and optimistic about the week ahead now.


#237 head in the clouds

From down in the dumps yesterday, into a light, dreamy feeling today. What a difference the weather makes! Sometimes I feel I’m particularly susceptible to changes in the weather, or maybe it’s just me, and nothing whatsoever to do with the elements.

The clouds tonight formed beautiful, canvas-like formations, colours and lines in the sky. I stood on the balcony for ages watching them slowly shift and transform themselves. It was a really calming moment.


#236 dark mood

The Daily Shoot today was about dark areas.

Make a low key photo today with lots of dark areas. You might need to use exposure compensation to make it work.

I wish I had had more time to experiment to manage to get a black background and find more interesting subjects. Would have been interesting to try B/W photography, too, but another time then.

Just a dark snap of a houseplant, which, with the shadows, depicts my mood on this rainy day. There must be lots of low pressure in the air.
