In March of this year I found ViewBug – “a creative community with the world’s best photo contests.”
It was a love from the first sight. I joined it and it gives me an opportunity to relax a bit during very difficult time in my life (my wife is very seriously ill).
In every creative community you meet interesting people. I made many friends with extremely talented and very good people on WordPress. I also starting to know people in ViewBug.
Before my wife became ill I saw the portfolio of Tristan Quevilly on ViewBug and his newly created website. Tristan is from France but now lives and works in Columbia. Below is one of his photos.
This is what Tristan wrote to you:
It’s cold and raining in New York today.
However, it’s so pleasant to remember that our planet always have terrific warm places.
Just imagine that you are in one of them!
My surprises come usually once I start rolling and photographing.
One day it was raining hard in Hollywood (Florida). As the result there was a lot
of water on the floor of the loggia of our apartment.
Raindrops continued to drop on the water in the loggia and it looked to me as a
new organism was born there.
I took my camera, zoomed it on water on the floor and took a shot. Then I made
the photo in black and white.
I got a surprise – a living monster.
It is wonderful that children who are loved play and don’t think about security.
The world is too dangerous today!
There are always many people who look down at the skater rink in the Rockefeller center..
There are also many flags on the same side of the street.
Green is prime color.
That’s why it is easy being green.
Every human longs for peace and love.
On 1/20/2017 I found on LEARN FUN FACTS and enjoyed the post
The post with many quotes about circles inspired me to create a simple painting below.
I hope that you’ll like it.
We think of our lives as straight or not so straight roads but I believe that we often follow circles and our happiness and all emotions depend on their colors.
I was walking from the Pocono Manor Inn to the Carriage House.
The road was empty but all of a sudden I got a feeling that somebody was watching me.
I stopped, took my tiny camera from a pocket, prepared to take a shot and slowly started to turn.
Then I saw him. He stayed quietly until I made a photo. Then both of us went to our destinations. I was delighted. Hopefully, he liked our meeting too.
I met somebody last spring and was so inspired that against all odds I created the unforgettable picture below.
Sorry, it is not a photo but I hope that you’ll be impressed by this extraordinary haircut and the depth of my imagination.
Below are one of my favorite quotes and a photo I was lucky to shoot in Hollywood (Florida). I hope that you’ll like them.
What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I would appreciate very much if in comments to this post you shared whatever you like or proud of (giving links to your blogs).
Today’s weekly challenge is AMBIENCE.
Every time I enter the Pocono Manor Inn I feel its special atmosphere.
Below is a photo I selected for the challenge.
