This week’s entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge – “Variations on a theme” – is a little abstract. Can you spot the original photo? I only played around with the colour setting on this one… I might post another entry as I like this week’s theme quite a lot. It gives you a lot of freedom when it comes to interpreting it.

Supernatural fans will agree that Jared Padalecki is like a ray of sunshine on a cold winter day. I thought long about what I wanted to enter for this week’s Photo Challenge. When I found this photo I took at the Asylum 14 convention, it was settled. Michelle W. from the Daily Post quoted harmony as being “[…]the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.”Ā I think Jared more than fits this description šŸ˜‰

My entry for this week’s Photo Challenge Seasons. This photo was taken in Wilhelshaven, Germany. It was a stunningly cold but beautiful day at the ocean. My friend who I was visiting at that time invited me to go see the Unesco World Natural Heritage site there. The Wadden Sea tourist center was very interesting and offered this beautiful view from its observation deck. In the winter, the sea is really uninviting. It’s rough and freezing. In addition to that, the wind was so strong, I had to grip my camera tightly in order not to have it ripped from my hands. Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience and I hope to be able to go again in the summer.

My entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is Time. I’m visiting my friend in Jever which is a small city in Northern Germany. I had noticed this legend-themed fountain the first time I came to Jever. At that point unfortunately, I hadn’t brought my camera. Now, I had the chance to capture this tender gesture, the hand streched out in greeting, to be kissed by some gentleman or other. A gesture we now associate with past times, storiesĀ and legends.
