Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having you had a great weekend! I’ll keep the chit chat short and sweet as I did the classic, 10min shut eye thinking about editing and fell asleep last night instead. So I’m dropping by with last weeks, Weekend Friday Favourites on a Monday. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye the past few weeks as I missed last weeks WFF.

BABY MEERKATS

I can’t handle the cuteness right now. Barcelona Zoo has baby meerkats! When I first saw them 2 weeks ago they were teenie tiny.

October’s 1st Week Catch Up

I don’t know about where you are at the moment, but that thing about crisp autumnal fall afternoons is a myth. Daily temps are a cool 23C. Too cool for shorts and too warm for leggings. The light’s shifting so bright summer colours stand out against a softer light. More people are dressing in darker colours which I try to avoid as I prefer wearing lighter colours leaving me feeling double not knowing how to layer right now. Even the weather doesn’t know how to layer. 23C the average with some days topping 26C with the evenings 20-22C.

Anyways I’ll leave you with some catch up photos! Mostly of the zoo. Youtube’s been less this week, yet that time’s been taken up translating (more…)

Humidity And The Beach

The humidity’s something else at the moment. If you’re in the wind which hasn’t seemed to had a day off this year you’re okay. In pockets were there’s no air like my gym changing room, in the centre down narrow alley ways the air’s sticky and somewhat still. 

My gym has air conditioning but never freezing. Just a little cooler or warmer than the ambient air temp depending on the season. And at the moment it’s bust. (more…)

Optimistic and Vibrant Weekly Photo Challenge

My pick for this weeks challenge also double up as last weeks challenge optimistic.

Sunsets are all about vibrancy, especially in the winter. The pink and reds are always more intense than in the summer. Maybe this is due to how the earth is tilted and how low the sun is during in winter that makes the light/colours more intense. But I’m not a scientist, I just know the colours are easy on the eye!

Dawn and sunrises on the other hand, they don’t always get the big ooo’s as sunsets do. Maybe this is because few people are up to see them. They can be just as vibrant if not more than sunsets. There’s something about seeing the sun rise that gives you a sense of optimism. Same sun, same air, same planet, but no 2 days are the same. Seeing that ball of pink pop up over the horizon adds a little bounce to your step. Even if only for a few minutes. You just got to see a new day saying hello!
