Love nature

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

– Albert Einstein

Another Earth Day is here. This year’s campaign of the EDN (Earth Day Network) is called: End Plastic Pollution.

If we all  reconsider and change our attitude towards the wide consumption of plastic, be more informed about the threats and consequences of our health and the environment, we should contribute to this effort.  Undoubtedly we all want to live on a cleaner and a healthier planet!

By the Danube

A story by the Danube river…

by the Danube river, Bratislava,Slovakia

During their winter promenade by the Danube river, something unexpected got their attention from the other side of the river, so they moved closer to the river bank. The father, as an adult with more experience and knowledge is trying to give an explanation to his little one, who listens carefully to his story.

After a long pause, they continued staring at the the river and slowly both of them immersed in their own thoughts!

This quiet and beautiful moment though did not last for long, because they were interrupted by the other members of the family.

Walking alongside the banks of the Danube river in Bratislava, we approached the New Bridge with the UFO tower. This bridge has always fascinated me and no matter how many times I pass by, it draws me in. I find myself taking its pictures every time, and each time it’s from different vantage point.

Treasure Flowers

Gazania rigens, also known as treasure flower, is native to South Africa. It is a durable perennial plant that thrives in dry and hot conditions which needs full sun and well drained soil.

Gazania flowers close at night and in cloudy conditions. But during the day their beautiful colors are mesmerizing. They bloom in various vivid shades of red, orange, yellow, pink, white or in two tones.  In our garden the  gazanias are a stunning orange color.

At some point I noticed that, while most of our gazania flowers began to dry, – closing  their life cycle – few were still in bloom. This contrast is what caught my eye and I felt compelled to capture  the moment.
