Each of us has his own September 11.
The day when something happens that makes that date unforgettable for ever.
September 11 belongs to the history of us all,
then there are the dates that belong only to a few people.

Photo of the month: September

It's some time that I do not write. It happens. There are times when the ideas are few or maybe you just do not have the ability to share what you live.

One of the strangest summers that I can remember is slowly saying goodbye, giving us the appointment for the next year.

Now I have no excuses and I must return to my routine. 

Goodbye summer!

Closed for holidays!

I'm leaving for my summer holidays with the family... destination seaside!

I wish you all happy holidays and a great summer with the ones you love...

See you by the end of this month...take care!

Photo of the month: August

It is said that one day the beautiful Fairy Lavandula, looking for a nice place to live, began looking through his book of landscapes.
Get into the page of Provence, she stopped and beginning to cry at the sight of those poor wildlands.
The tears fell on the page blotting it and she tried in vain to wipe her blue eyes as tiny droplets continued to soak those lands.
Desperate then drew a large stretch of blue sky on Provence, to forget all those spots.
Since then, the lavender grows in those lands formerly uncultivated, a spot of color under the blue sky of Provence[...]

I found this purple spot some miles from my home and for a moment I believe I was those beautiful lands.


Did you look up to the sky a few days ago and admired it?

Have you seen how big she was and how close she was?
She was larger than usual and more luminous.

They were "only" 360.365 km away from the Earth and was one of the three new-moon supermoons of this 2014.

Sometimes I really need to take my time and see how beautiful is...our Moon.

Dynamic summer

Summer weather has never been as dynamic as this year!
A continuous swing of sun, clouds, rain, rainbows, certainly not typical of the Mediterranean summer we are used to.

I take advantage of this opportunity for some photographs near where I live, trying to find out more interesting shots than those with an anonymous blue sky.

In the meantime I'm waiting for the real summer ...
