the week through the lens

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...

:: 1. a bike ride with friends

:: 2. and enjoying the pretty view from the tower!

:: 3. a march through the city with lots of other women, to mark woman's rights!
       and we are not there, but we have come far for the past 28 years...

:: 4. and keep it purple for an evening moment with T

:: 5. lot's of work to be done

:: 1. peonies are all over, in the gardens and in my living room as well, i absolutely love the look as
       well as the scent of those flowers.

:: 2. delfinium, so pretty and dark purple. this one is right at the foot of our front stairs.

:: 3. elderflowers, just to pretty up my jar of water.

:: 4. summer is arriving and we love it. the girls are so happy with the water balloons (if it would be
       up to me, i would not get them the balloons, but thea spends her pocket money...)

:: 5. blue sky, green trees and lots of out door time for me.
