This bouche of roses was living the peaceful life in the garden of Voronet Monastery in Moldova, Romania. The paintings of saints on the walls and the quiet, prayful atmosphere there lifted up my heart.
Hope in the Darkness
Sometimes it is easy to get lost in worries and doubts. Little do we know that hope, however frail, is waiting quietly to pull us out of our darkness. Hope is never lost!
What a beautiful coincidence this was! It’s quite old, but I believe I took this photograph in my home town, Piatra-Neamt, Romania.
This was taken a long time ago in Oglinzi, near Targul Neamt, Romania. I was visiting my godparents and I believe we were having a nice stroll through the village. This little fellow was watching our every move.
Dog from Ciocanesti
On one of my solo trips through Ciocanesti, Romania, I find this relaxed dog, bathing in the sunlight. He’s probably the guard for the house behind him.
On a quiet afternoon in May, I went for a stroll in the Botanic gardens of Bath, UK. I was eager to test my new lens on the birds there. The squirrels, however, turned out to be even more entertaining. Notice how the curved tail resembles the curved branch of the tree.
The Keeper of Secrets
I was on a quest to find finches in the trees of Bath, UK and behold, this little fellow came to say hello! He was no bigger than my little finger, but was witty and had a sweet tune.
In September me and my family went to Kakadu National Park, Australia. One of the cruises we did was on Adelaide river, where our guide fed crocodiles and wild kites from the boat.
I went on a cruise on Mary River, in Kakadu National Park, Australia to see the beautiful wildlife. One of the many birds there was the Jacana, or the Jesus bird. It gets the name from the fact that it “walks on water” or from lily leaf to lily leaf.
This image was probably taken in Queensland, Australia. It was a few years ago, but I still remember the Kookaburra’s distinctive laughter. It almost felt that I walked into a comedy show. Also, they prefer meat to bread, so keep your fingers ar bay.
