Project 365. Music

This is one of my older works. I was experimenting with lens bursts and panning, so this was the result of mixing lens burst, long exposure and low light, with Cutters Warf providing beautiful lighting. There was hardly any processing done apart from cropping…so i am quite pleased with the outcome still.

I called this image “Belfast beat”.

Project 365. C is for…

C is for coffee in the morning with a warm cream bun…

coffee

 

Well, in my case it is a bit healthier option of a drink – a chicory root drink, but with a coconut fresh cream bun on a side (not so healthy 🙂 ). But I have to say that chicory is great as a coffee substitute, with the benefit of having no caffeine. Really healthy stuff.

Project 365. A sound you heard

A sound you heard …

A sound you heard –

a rustle of leaves,

a bird timidly tweeting ,

a squirrel scurrying through the grass,

a crow circling high above,

wind going through empty branches,

a sound of silence – a silence of snow…

The silence of snow

This was a bit of a lyrical take on the today’s theme. The theme did get me thinking about all the sounds we hear or not hear when we actually do realise that we are in the present moment…

Well this trail of thought got me all the way to silence, as apparently when snow starts to fall it gets quiet. It turns out the snow muffles all the sounds and it seems like the world gone silent. If you do by any chance get across falling snow, do stop for a second and listen – you will hear silence.

…And just to add a few more sounds …

 

Project 365. Ice

Ice is cold, ice is dangerous… but it can be fun, like ice-skating cannot be done without it, smoothies are yummy…A favourite drink tastes just perfect on a wintery evening by the fire…

And for a devoted fisherman, an ice on a lake is a one of the most awaited moments during winter (at least in post-soviet countries – remember my father and uncle could not wait until the lake would freeze completely so they could go out on ice, bore a hole in the ice and fish to their heart content). I have to say, seeing and more importantly actually standing on a frozen lake is a moment to remember. On our way back to Vilnius from Druskininkai we stopped by a lake GlÄ—bo EĹľeras that was frozen solid and there were some fishermen actually getting ready for a day on ice.

I love winter. It is beautiful, it is magical, it is a magician 🙂
