Still life


 
It is the middle of the summer!
I am constantly dreaming about new places to travel.
And I'm sure we do not have to cross our beautiful country
to get the feeling of being somewhere new.
I would be happy to stay in another city for a few days, 
to have wonderful time at the sea with long walks in the evening..
 
See you soon,
Rita

Summer evening ..with Helios


 
I recently bought an old Helios 44-2 lens and couldn't wait to try it on my Nikon body.
Not so simple it seems! First, you should use only manual focus.
Second, you can't get inifinity focus, so is either for nearby objects or detail shots.
But it gives a beautiful bokeh. Love it!

Things I like/ 12

 
I was a dandelion puff...Some saw the beauty in me and stooped quietly
to admire my innocence. Others saw the potential of what I could do for them,
so they uprooted me, seeking to shape me around their needs.
They blew at my head, scattering my hair from the roots, changing me to suit them.
Yet still others saw me as something that was unworthy and needed to be erased.
