Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture (II)

Published as part of Weekly Photo Challenge.

What a lovely picture! Very velvety, smooth… BUT CAN YOU GUESS WHAT THIS IS? (Update: Answer below)

I’d love to know of what you think this beautiful surface is made! I will update the post with the right answer soon.

Ans.: It’s bacterial/wild yeast infection on an old homebrew my former housemate left behind! Beautiful!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Bread crumbs, so versatile! Texture that turns into other textures. What are you using it for? Stuffing? Alla Milanese? Schnitzel? Crumble? Do you like it crackly? Soft? Fried? Baked? Well… it’s great!

Enjoy it!

Weekly Photo Challenge II: Zig Zag (Quilt)

Published as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge

Before the week is up, I’d like to publish a photo of my quilt. Why?

When I graduated from University, my grandmother gave this quilt as a gift, but it’s a special type of quilt. Not only my grandmother made it, but it has a piece of clothe from most members of the family. Parts of my great-grandmother’s dress, of the dress my aunt left maternity with my cousin, a pocket from my uncle’s first pair of pants, my mom’s dress when she was 15 years old… well, you get where this is going.

It’s more than just a quilt… it is a quilt that my grandmother made that tells the history of our family! Pretty neat, isn’t it?

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.
