it has been on the back burner, i have not been taking a lot of photos for a while now, and that should change. so i put the "hand made" lens back on the camera body and got started this week. it touched me in a special way, as i wander and have the camera ready be it in the kitchen, or living room table... this enables me to see with new eyes and i like it. we will see if it sticks, it is a start to a new friday review of what caught my eye. there is to be said, that i was inspired by erin boyle and her blog "reading my tea leaves". she does a wonderful job and it is so inspirational to have a look at her photos...

it turned into a 2 hour jam cooking adventure, my dad and thea cut the fruit. and together with my mother we cooked and addes this and that for different flavors. one batch was with oranges (damaged ones from the little store in town) an other batch was mixed with peaches.
and for the pleasure of using up old fruit, we cooked a batch of old banana and overly ripe kiwi. with that one, we added a little bit of williams (pear "brant wine"), just for a jinx of flavor. i liked it fresh from the stove, and we will see later how it will taste when cold and on a buttered bread.

it's all so very green. i didn't expect it to be so very green in the middle of july. the heat of summer is upon us and for a while now, rain has been super scarce but still, nature is abundant with all it's deep greens...
