Power Flower Friday

The weekend is here and what a better way to greet it that with a beautiful Caribbean flower.

Tomorrow is the grand opening of a new beach bar near 7 mile public beach (Tiki Beach) and we are invited!

The event's dress code is "elegant smart" so I have a new dress and I can't wait to wear it. Will take my camera and post pictures for the world to enjoy the happenings of that night.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

In sepia

Yesterday while looking at some pictures of my dog Sheba I realized that she is almost Sepia color, if I adjust a color picture the change is not very different, ck it out...

Obviously I don't have much to write about today, I guess I could mention the terrible disaster that it the oil spill in the Gulf but that is just too painful to even think about, nevertheless write about...

So, today this will be my post... in sepia!

Big Animals

On yesterday's post I wrote a little bit about imagining great wonders and how beauty is in the eye of the beholder or at least the camera holder.

Also on my post from the day before yesterday, I mentioned animals encounters in nature. Well, if you are looking for somebody to show you animals encounters and beauty in great wonders I believe Amos Nachoum might just be the perfect person for that.

He is an nature/underwater photographer able to imagine and experience great wonders that he captures with his camera, like this one..

 Or this one

But besides showing us those great and gentle giants, I believe he's probably the only person ever able to catch on camera the most extreme smile of the animal world, in no other than a Great White Shark...

Say cheeese!!!!

Besides taking underwater pictures he also takes land ones and has some amazing expeditions that you can read about (and sign up if you have the time and the money- in case you have both but don't feel like going on one, please contact me and I would love to go for you instead, LOL!).

Visit Amos website by clicking here.

And now, saving the best for last...

Happy Hump(whale) Day!

"Only when we accept small wonders, we qualify ourselves to imagine great wonders"- Tom Robbins. 

Walking around my yard last weekend made me think about the above quote found on the Tom Robbins book I am currently reading. 

I walked around and took some random pictures around the edges of our property, where there's nothing but overgrown bushes, well, not really...



To some these might just seem like just plants, bushes that are just over grown and don't have any beauty to them, to me are small wonders that make this planet a great wonder. 

I am sure you have heard the expression "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", well, I guess it can also be in the eye of the camera holder, what do you think???

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

I just love it when I have encounters in nature with animals that come so close that you swear it's like they are trying to tell you something (and maybe they are). It even nicer when you see a new new animal species in nature for the first time.

Since we moved to this house almost 3 years ago we have had the pleasure to have many visitors (mostly birds) in our back porch, this weekend was not an exception, for the first time since we've lived here we had to pleasure to see a Northern Flicker, isn't it beautiful?

Of course I had to run to get my camera to get a shot, and yeah I got one, but this...

Don't you just love it when you take a picture and you were genius enough to have everything but the main object well focused, I know I do! LOL

Have a wonderful week... I will be keeping an eye for "Flicker" and hope to get a much better shot to post later.
