Photography 101: Triumph

I figured that Lady Liberty needed a bit of a touch-up, so I decided to help her…. Please, meet Lady Pliberty.





This is not what I would call a photography project, but a photo-montage… still I hope it will provoke some laughs. This is the final post in this Photo 101 challenge ending with the theme of triumph.

Now honestly, isn’t she twice the lady she used to be?


ADDENDUM: My blogger friend Yvette at suggested I should show what Lady Liberty had looked like before my intervention, so here, have a peek: 😀


Thursday’s Special: Double – Photo 101



This month I am combining my Thursday’s Special event with the #photo101 assignment for that day. I will be happy, if you join me. Remember, for my event you can come up with your own special theme.





Check out beautiful contributions for this Thursday’s Special:

Photography 101: Edge



This is my entry for today’s #photo101 project.

Photography: Glass

These three cherries are made of white glass; different colouring was obtained during the shooting process. Possibilities when shooting glass are endless.

Photography 101: Landscape





This is my entry for today’s #photo101 project.

Photography 101: Moment

As he was coming running down the hill this braying donkey was determined to defend himself, several other donkeys, a pony and a herd of sheep.

I can’t remember when I had so much fun :D.

Photography: Connect

What you see in this photo is the landmark of Oxford, Herftord Bridge, popularly known as the Bridge of Sighs though its design bears a closer similarity to Rialto Bridge than to the actual Ponte dei Sospiri in Venice. It connects the Old and New Quadrangles of Hertford College and was completed in 1914.

Photography 101: Solitude


“Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell that solitude is fine.”

Honoré de Balzac


This is my entry for today’s  #photo101 project.


A friendly blogger asked me about meta data so here they are:

Exposure: 1/250 sec at f/5,6
Focal length: 135 mm
ISO: 200
Canon EOS 70D
Lens: EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

Photography 101: Water

Having one of the most advanced waterway systems in Europe, the medieval Bologna grew into the fifth largest city in the 13th century Europe and into the main textile centre of Italy.

Water canals can still be seen today surrounding the narrow alleys of this enthralling town.

The host of #photo101 project Cheri Lucas suggested we should turn the camera both horizontally and vertically while shooting to get both landscape and portrait views of the same scene. I am happy to oblige and post two different views of Moline canal in Bologna.



This is my interpretation of water for today. I look forward to seeing your entries. A word of warning for tomorrow: this month I will be combining my Thursday’s Special with Photo 101 assignments, which will economize my posting process and maybe bring more advertising to my main event 😀

Photography 101: Street

On my travels I have seen streets in many towns and most of them were packed with tourists and locals which did not always make me feel welcome. There is something about my home town Zagreb when it gets emptied in August that appeals to me. Here is one of its main streets…





or maybe it looks better in this one? (Feel free to vote)


I am taking part in Word Press’ #photo101 project the purpose of which is to post a photo a day during the month of November. This will not stop me from publishing my usual posts as well, particularly for my Thursday’s Special and Black and White Sunday challenges.

Photography 101: Home…

There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure home.

Photography is not just sharing your own world; it is seeing and capturing the world around you. Those who follow me closely know enough about me. Let my photos of what I see be my introduction in this project. Big thanks to all new comers on my blog. Looking forward to meeting you all. Paula
