Weekly Photo Challenge: Zig-Zag (Knitting)

This week’s photo challenge is Zig-Zag

One of my favourite hobbies is knitting. I think that the patterns created from this extremely relaxing hobby fits perfectly with the challenge!

It helps me zig-zag through my thoughts!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Summer Lovin’

Published as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge

Can you imagine that this sort of thing is happening right in my backyard? Despicable! Think of the children? I am just joking, ok? But I needed to poke people who can’t handle that love, in whatever way or form, is all around us.

This is probably what I love most about the summer (and spring). How everything around us just comes to life! How the season generates life! It’s beautiful!


This week’s photo challenge is Containers

Lately, a lot of my posts have, somehow, related to containers, so it is very convenient that this is the weekly photo challenge. I am not sure what falls within the category, but I have planted my chili seedlings in plenty of containers, I brew my beers in containers, I have my compost in a container, I keep my knitting stuff in a paper box… well, you understand what I am getting at.

My most important container is, by far, my good old backpack. My backpack has been on the road with me on every single trip. It has been lost for weeks by a few airlines, ripped, sowed back together (by yours truly), holes covered with flags, which were given to me by friends, yet, I cannot see myself travelling with any other “container”, my most loyal travelling companion!

Well, pretty much anything around me is a container… in a literal or figurative sense! It’s possibly a very philosophical challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

This week photo challenge is Relic.

Even though the relic itself cannot be photographed, it was one that moved me, I must say!

For a brief history, Thierry de Alsace, Count of Flanders, built a chapel. Shortly after, he went on the Second Crusades and brought back with him a vial containing the blood of Jesus Christ, collected by Joseph of Arimathea during the crucifixion. For just under 1000 years, this relic has been revered by million.

I am not a religious person, but every time I stop by Bruges, I visit the Basilica to pay my respects to this very moving ancient relic.

Believe it or not about the truth of its content, well, just appreciate how old it is!
