While I was trying to write a new post, I decided to organise my photo archive and found the photos of an artichoke flower that I shot last summer. I recall that I didn’t like them back then. There was something about it that was bothering me and I felt that its purple color was too bright. Maybe it just wasn’t what I was expecting at the time.
That day a family friend from Slovakia came to visit us and we went for a walk outside in the fields by the house. We stumbled upon this artichoke flower which looked really compelling and I took several shots. The next day our friend who was anxiously awaiting for the pictures, asked me if they were ready but I disappointed her by saying that I didn’t like them.
When I came upon them this time, I changed my mind. The color seemed just fine. I also noticed that there were tiny bugs and insects on the flower which I totally forgot they were there.
A whole microscopic world was gathered in that attractive purple artichoke flower!

One cloudy day, I was wandering around Bratislava with the intention of finding interesting things to shoot, when I saw this fascinating tree. It reminded me of a lady trying to stand against the wind, wearing a long dress with green details and rough texture. It looked like she is leaning her upper body backwards, as if making an effort to retain her balance while trying to hold onto the green railings behind her as the wind continues to blow…
This is the picture that popped in front of me as soon as I laid eyes on it. It might remind you something else or nothing at all, like my husband, who just sees a tall tree. It depends on everyone’s imagination!

It’s just me playing with the light and my sunglasses from a moving car. Don’t worry I wasn’t the driver!
Through the first part of the trip, I was shooting from inside the car and it was hard because both the car and I were moving, To add to it, the road was full of curves and that made it hard to maintain my stability. At one point I had to stop the experiment because I started to feel dizzy!
When we finally arrived at our destination, we went to a café for a drink. The weather was really nice and sunny so we sat outside. It was a great opportunity for me to play again some more with my sunglasses and the light.
