Motivational Monday

Sorry that I didn’t post a quote last Monday but here we go again 🙂

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”

– Alice Walker

Weekly Photo Challenge: Textures

“This week, share a texture found in an unexpected place. It could be made of natural materials, as in these images, or with man-made objects.”

What a great theme for a photo challenge because it can be interpreted in so many ways and we are surrounded by different textures everywhere. I immediately thought about a couple of pictures which I took while I travelled through New Zealand last year. I was so fascinated by the nature and its beauty. So here is a small collection of different textures like tree bark, solidified lava and sulphuric sediments. Hope you enjoy this entry.

Weekly Poto Challenge: Zig Zag

“For this week’s challenge, share with us your own take on zigging and zagging. It can be a winding path, the Herringbone pattern on your coat, a scar: any jagged line that tells a story.”

Barcelona is not only a colourful City, it’s also famous for it’s architecture. Many artists lived in Barcelona and they shaped to the contemporary cityscape. Like the building on the picture there are a handful of houses with a Zig Zag front.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin

Summer Lovin’
Show us something you love. It could be your favorite novel, the light of the moon on your deck at night, the beach on a hot day, or that special you-know-who. Get creative!

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend in Spreewald a beautiful biosphere reserve just an hour away from Berlin. It was time to relax a little bit and to leave the stress of work and the city behind us. So we enjoyed the sunny weather and explored the Spreewald by bike and with a canoe. Here are some Pictures I took over the weekend and which mean ‘Summer Lovin’ for me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

“Boxes, tanks, wrappers: for this week’s Photo Challenge, show us something that contains something else.”

Here is a picture of a few “containers” on my window sill. I love to store staple foods like noodles in these glass “containers”. It looks tidy in the kitchen and I can always see if I need to buy something. Hope you enjoy this entry. More great posts to this WPC on “The Daily Post“.
