Woke up this morning and saw that it was misty. This weather gave my morning walk an extra mysterious quality. At least I think so.
Off course, my four legged friends wanted ‘a piece’ of the spotlight too. So demanding… 😉
Another building at the Port of Ghent, covered in graffiti. Love it! The fact that an artist left three empty bottles of spray paint there was just great, made for some interesting shots (remember the one with the extra model).
Just a side note on the ‘Growing up’-post of yesterday, I did not expect that post to get much response. I didn’t have much to say, the pictures weren’t my best, so I wasn’t sure if I should even post it or not. Turns out it’s one of my most liked posts! Funny how that goes doesn’t it?
Saw this house recently were ivy almost completely covered the facade. I’m totally pro ivy-covering, what about you guys?
Tonight I’m going to a practice of a dog school that specializes in dog frisbee, to take pictures off course. I’m so looking forward to it, so check in later on this week if you want to see the result!
I’ve realized that this blog has helped me a lot in my journey to become a good photographer. Like today for example, I’m tired, but I want to blog consistently so got myself together and turned on my laptop. But also, I keep thinking about what to post next too, which pushes me to take a lot of pictures and practice.
A while back I went to the cemetery here in Lokeren (if you missed that post, click here), but I didn’t post all my pictures at once. There’s a series of statues looking over a grave, which gave me a feeling of security.
When I posted a picture of my Golden Retriever (if you missed it: click here), I promised you guys to tell you a little more about four legged friend number two: my Bernese Mountain dog Hagar (named after the cartoon character Hägar the Horrible).
I think my dogs are equally great and gorgeous, but I have different type of bond with Hagar. Not only because he’s my first dog, but also because Bernese Mountain dogs have a tendency to bond with one person in particular, in contrast to Retrievers who tend to love everyone. And Hagar is like that, I’m the only person that matters to him, the only one he is focused on and the only one he would protect when being attacked. And seeing that he is quite small for his breed, I get all of that rapped up in a cute little fur ball :-).
This last picture I didn’t actually take myself, but I found it recently in my box of old school analog pictures and wanted to share it anyway, seeing that it is the cutest picture ever of Hagar :-).
If your answer to my post title is “Me”, please leave… ;-). I think spring is the best season, especially after a wet and depressing winter. Nice sunny days, the nights aren’t too hot and there are flowers everywhere. Like the dandelion. For you not Belgian people, we actually call it a ‘Paardenbloem’, which literally means Horse(s)flower (yes I know, Belgians are weird). Do you love spring as much as I do?
My all time favorite tree is the Japanese Cherry. It’s in full bloom now, but even a little breeze will loosen the pellets and make it ‘snow’ (which is as close as we got to snow this year here in Belgium). Those beautiful little pellets are covering the little lawn in front of my house too.
