Happy New Year/ a video post

First of all, I,m so sorry for the lighting! It was getting dark already when I started recording this video.
Secondly, I didn,t know that my voice sounds so childish, but my voice is my voice :)
Thirdly, my pronunciation leaves much to be desired.




Have a nice day!

Ice Creatures



Another photograph of ice formations. The snow has melted and I,m already sooo excited, because the new ice will cover puddles soon, and I,ll be able to take more pictures of these weird ice creatures.

Tomorrow I,m seeing Anastasia and we will probably record a video of me talking :) Have to think over what to tell you about, because I,m not that good at speaking English spontaneously.
I hope the weather will improve, because right now it,s stormy, terrible stormy weather.

P.S.
We bought an amazing Christmas tree! I,m going to decorate it tonight and take lots of pictures :)

Have a nice day, guys!

Merry Christmas!

 

Had a wonderful day with my family :)
We went for a walk not to waste a sunny day.
Here in Russia we celebrate Christmas on the 7th of January, but ,anyway, Merry Christmas to you all! I enjoyed reading all of your posts so much!









I have never been good at taking photographs of branches :)











Winter forest is incredibly beautiful!



I don,t have bangs! This sometimes happens when I run fast. It looks quite ridiculous, I must say :)



Merry Christmas!

Why don,t we celebrate Halloween?...



A couple of days ago I went for a walk with my dog though it was getting dark already. Some puddles covered with ice grabbed my attention, they seemed to look quite mysterious. Too mysterious, I must say. I realized that only when I came home.
Can you see that scaring face in the upper right corner?
I do hope you see that terrifying teeth and an eye, and I,m not completely crazy.

Have a nice day and try to forget the face in the picture :)

Let It Snow



I got up early in the morning and was very quite irritated because I didn,t get enough sleep, as usual, actually. Then I looked out of the window and saw... You,ll never guess! I saw the snow covering everything :) It was marvellous to see white roofs and trees.
My mood improved right away. I had my breakfast quickly, then got dressed, grabbed a camera and went out to take some photographs. The lighting was amazing, but unfortunately I didn,t have much time as I had to go to school, pfff...

This is the last school week before winter holidays, by the way :)

Have a nice day,
Vera

Back in time (2)



Hi, guys,
First of all, I was sooo glad to receive all of your comments! It means a lot to me, thank you!

Lately I was browsing the pictures taken in summer and suddenly came upon this photograph and realized how much I miss my walks with a camera. It was actually very difficult to reach this cat and get an acceptable lighting, because he was trying to hide from me ( heh, do I look that scaring? ) under a car. Well, cats have every right to be camera shy, don,t they?

Have a nice day,
Vera

Look what this guy is doing! Isn,t he the sweetest creature?


Just kidding!
Osya rolls over every time we go for a walk :)

Don,t take this post too seriously, I,ll be back soon with a long text. I just can,t concentrate on anything else because I really put much effort into writing.

Have a nice day!

day off

Going to school has made me more than tired, even exhausted. I always have late nights and don,t get enough sleep. As a result, I didn,t heard my alarm clock ringing today.
When I woke up, it was already too late to go to school. I must admit, I was very happy to know that I had overslept and didn,t feel ashamed at all. Going to school 6 days a week? No, thanks...

It has been snowing for several hours today and I spent most of the time outside taking pictures. Such weather made me think about Christmas. By the way, I,m thinking about recording a video post this month. Although, I,m not sure I can speak English that well, I hope, you,ll be able to understand me and won,t pay much attention to my accent :)

I,m absolutely obsessed with taking photographs of water in black&white, they always do look so mysterious!

Have a nice day!

No Snow

The first day of winter. Time passes so quickly.
  Christmas is approaching, isn’t it exciting? The weirdest thing is that there is still no snow here in St. Petersburg. Obviously, this winter isn’t going to be as harsh as the previous one, but who knows…

I have so many plans for this December! The most important one is to finish writing the promised text about the events that influenced my life and attitude. I actually started writing it about a month ago but I still have a lot to think over. Writing that text is definitely good for me.  I try to write so that every sentence sounds well. I have a chance to think back and to review what happened in the past. Sometimes it’s not very easy, especially to realize I have made lots of mistakes, but I know they helped me to become who I am now.

I’m also planning to write about the insecurities and fears that I have overcome. I’m tired of pretending and simply want to be candid. Talking about blogging, it’s very important to let readers know you better, with all your insecurities, imperfections or whatever. You shouldn’t hide what makes you unique and different from others.

I know that lots of bloggers only post their outfit photos and write a list of what they were wearing below. Nothing more. Can anybody explain me why so many people are interested in such blogs? How can they write “you-are-awesome” comments if they can only see clothes? I get bored by such blogs immediately.
Sure, everybody has his own way and I can’t judge people, but I want to write frankly, so that you can know who that Vera is, who posts cat photographs and misses Wiesbaden way too much.
This picture was taken in October. That reflections seem to be painted, what do you think?

Hmm… When I opened Blogger I thought I would just write how glad I am that winter has come. So, here it is, spontaneous writing :)
