I spy with my little eye

Bathing in the sun, looking over the water, and dreaming of far away coasts…



This month I would like to introduce two bloggers that have my utmost respect and admiration. Please, say hello to Phil of phillanoue.com and Sophia of  sonelcorner.wordpress.com.

This post is my entry for Marianne’s CBBH Challenge. Pay her a visit!

Black and White Stuff – Sequel

I have decided this is going to be B&W week, not in my dressing style but in my blog appearance.

It has been great fun converting my old shots into black and white…. Maybe you will like them too 🙂




The road taken ….. is not always the most traveled one …..

I would like you to listen to this soundtrack while looking at the photo below 02-nick_cave_and_warren_ellis_-_the_road-atrium  

Weekly Photo Challenge: DREAMING

The good thing is that I can’t take photos of some of the nightmares I have been having recently…. that would scare the bunch of you off my blog :D…so instead I am presenting you a dream come true, a dream of a distant land, a remote village nestled at the bottom of a high mountain I had been dreaming of visiting for years and finally managed to do it this past holiday.

It is not a photo taken by me, but it is my dream 🙂


Weekly Photo Challenge: MOVEMENT

Having my living room filled with still unpacked suitcases, I was tempted to take yet another shot of my messy luggage as I did for the journey photo challenge :D.

I am leaving for a holiday tomorrow, so the only thing I am thinking of now is movement: a change of pace, a change of scenery, a HOLIDAY. …

This is not a spectacular shot, but I liked the scenery, and it felt really great to be so high up in French Alps.

Please listen to the attached music too 04 – Feeling good – Huff and Herb – Buddha Bar by Claude Challe – Party (… It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me ..)

This post photo has been modified today to please Jeff. This one is for you buddy.


“Freedom is the possibility of isolation. You are free if you can withdraw from people, not having to seek them out for the sake of money, company, love, glory or curiosity, none of which can thrive in silence and solitude. If you can’t live alone, you were born a slave.”

And here is the original:

 “A liberdade é a possibilidade do isolamento. És livre se podes afastar-te dos homens, sem que te obrigue a procurá-los a necessidade de dinheiro, ou a necessidade gregária, ou o amor, ou a glória, ou a curiosidade, que no silêncio e na solidão não podem ter alimento. Se te é impossível viver só, nasceste escravo.” (Fernando Pessoa).
