Botanic beauties part III

Good afternoon,

to combat the current rainstorms we have here at the moment, let´s enjoy a bit of nature´s colours in this (for the moment) last part of my botanic beauties series.

Very soon there will be a work-in-progress post of the three-headed-school-dragon of Faunia  … more cuddly & comical than fierce & fiery 😉

Have a good day.

botanic beauties part II

Hi everyone,

after my adventure in Middle-earth, I started working on my next Faunia-creature – highly motivated to sculpt a fun and unique three-headed-“teacher´s pet” t0 add to my fantasy-realm I really enjoy to spend time with.

That beast probably will keep me occupied a bit, so for you to have a good time while I  “wrestle” with a clumsy & cute dragon, and to accompany the brilliant sunny weather, here´s a bit more of the botanic beauty I came across when travelling.

Enjoy.

New photo-series: botanic beauties I

Spring is approaching, so I felt it would be the perfect time to start a new photo-series with those many bloomy blossomy impressions I captured on my wanderings through nature when travelling … most pics were taken in New Zealand (now THAT is surprising, eh ? 😉 ) and Sicily. Enjoy!

Nice paths to follow, part III

The nice and sunny weather convinced me that today would be a great day to post some more of those nice paths I discovered and followed when travelling to some of the most beautiful places one can imagine…to be honest: it makes me want to pack my backpack and rush to the airport, catch the next flight heading for Australia or Canada or Norway or…

Nice paths to follow, part I

Browsing through my travel pics, I noticed that I captured quite a few nice paths, so I will post some of them in a three-part-serie. I hope you enjoy them. They gave and give me an uplift, as the last days were quite unnerving for me, I started the week with a big bang walking full speed into the door and badly bashing up two toes. They are of an impressive swollen blue and my walk sure isn´t as elegant as it usually is, haha. And there are some other things that don´t work out as I would like them to, soooo let us enjoy some nice paths and dream of what lays beyond them!
