267-2020 – Selfie Family Time


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about selfie family time initiated by our daughter. I decided to go with a blank & white treatment because I don’t want the variate colours to distract from the action, our daughter grabbing both of us by the neck while she is leaning towards the camera.

266-2020 – Cutting Firewood with a Chainsaw


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about cutting firewood with a chainsaw. I have no experience cutting firewood with a chainsaw, but our neighbour Gabi offered to help. He brought his own Stihl chainsaw and heavy duty wood log splitter. Tomorrow will have to stack all the firewood inside, next to the fireplace. Winters are harsh in Romania, and for that reason we have to prepare in advance, while the sun is still shining, because is not advisable to use wet or green wood in the fireplace. If you do, you might […]

265-2020 – Silver Metal Whistle


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a silver metal blowing whistle. In order to take this image I used my iPhone 11 Pro a piece of white tissue on the kitchen table using the available light. The edit was done in Lightroom mobile, white balance, cropping and masking the object with my finger to get the white background. I have to admit that is not perfect, but it’s amazing what can be done these days on a smartphone. Like, comment & share! 2 likes Related posts: 209-2020 – Lunch at Firejacks […]

261-2020 – Giant Grey Moth


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a giant grey moth we found in the basement of our house. My courageous wife picked it up gently and brought it outside, where I found it on a patch of grass, and started taking photos. Below are some of the stages the moth was going through as I shooting.

260-2020 – Gentle Touch


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is of my daughter’s gentle touch with the neighbour’s cat called Lemonade. Poor cat, sometimes I feel for her. She is dragged all over the garden and trained to walk like a human or squeezed firmly by the neck, with all the love in the world. On the other hand I don’t see her complaining too much, and only noticed a few scratches here and there on my daughter’s arm and face.

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about our two cute little cats, only a few weeks old.

Currently we are debating how to call them…Roxy seems to be one name my daughter is using, but to be honest I not even sure if they are male or females.

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my neighbours’ rabbit (Not Peter Rabbit) who escaped its cage this morning. I found it under the porch, grabbed it by the ears and put it back in its cage. Mission accomplished. To keep it busy for a while we dropped a bunch of dandelion leaves in the cage too.

251-2020 – Crying Vines


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the crying vines. I didn’t know about this vine tears phenomenon, which is a way for the grape vine to heal itself after pruning, preventing the penetration of bacteria, and finally closing off the cut wound.According to Botanical-Online this grape vine sap is one of the most important eye drops. It can be used to treat Skin Diseases or Conjunctivitis. 2 likes Related posts: 218-2020 – Yellow Flowers 172-2020 – Healthy Breakfast 174-2020 – New addition to the garden 176-2020 – Unripe Strawberry 180-2020 – Tomato Flowers 184-2020 – A Stubborn Bird […]

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is of a beautiful butterfly hanging upside down on an apple tree stalk. Even with a damaged wing, this beautiful orange and brown butterfly was flying without any issues. In conclusion, being flawed doesn’t make you less beautiful. For most people you are perfect the way you are. Carry on … flying.

249-2020 – The Final Goodbye


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the final goodbye family and friends wished to my father in law. In many traditions around the world, the memorial of a loved one doesn’t end after the funeral. While the memorial service is the last chance to say goodbye to the deceased in many cultures and religions, some believe the mourning process lasts for 40 days. There is a belief that the soul continues to wander the Earth for another 40 days after the initial death. While wandering, the soul visits significant places from their life as […]

248-2020 – White House with the Red Rooftop


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the white house with the red rooftop I see everyday from my kitchen window. Because our houses are located in a valley, most days the top of the hills are covered with a white blanket of clouds and this is the view I see quite often. Spectacular I would say! Another interesting fact is that the white house with red rooftop was the only house in the Doftana Valley in 2003, when my in-laws started the construction of their house. Now there are more than […]
