Everyday pictures

Hi there!
I promised to post more everyday photos and I,m definitely going to make it a regular feature on this blog.



Drawing outside,sitting on a bench in the garden, is so delightful!



What can one do on a rainy day? Cooking is an exellent pastime!



When there are no more yummy things to eat and when the rain is finally over, it,s time to go for a walk!









Have a nice day,

Vera

Everyday Pictures

If I were to describe my personality, there would be one very important thing to mention. Mood swings. I,ve got terrible mood swings. My mood changes all the time. I get up being sad for no reason, hate everything and everyone, feeling like I could start crying any minute, and then I suddenly become happy and cheerful. It,s very odd.
I wrote a very stupid post this morning. Then I went out and saw the sun shining. I thought it was unfair to share only some weird thoughts and a boring photograph with you who have always been so friendly. I decided to make up for it and post some everyday pictures, the ones that I take to capture all the adorable summer moments, all the details, to enjoy them quietly in the winter. I have noticed that I never post pictures like that on this blog, maybe I should do it more often, what do you think?
I must say that I,m getting more and more obsessed with painting, it,s so relaxing! I got a new set of qouache paints and I love them! The thing is that I,m just a beginner, I,m not supposed to be good at painting and therefore I,m less concerned about my "works".








Have a nice day,

Vera

A grey cat


Summer seems to be rather gloomy this year. Can you imagine wearing wool socks in the summer? That,s awful, very depressive, but there are things that are worse than wearing winter clothing in July: it seems that I have already photographed all cats in the neighbourhood. Hehe, I will always find a problem to complain about :)
I know, it sounds so stupid, it really does, but I can,t just calm down and pretend there,s nothing to worry about. The thing is that I can,t express myself. Or maybe I have set my goal too high. I don,t know. I used to think that I had a good eye for photography, people have often told me that, but now I really have doubts about it. I,m saying this not because I want you to tell me once again that I,m talented and should not give up, I simply want to be honest with you. This blog has always been an outlet for my inner thoughts and I must say that most of the time I think about my photography or better to say about how unsatisfying the results always are. I must be mad. These thoughts torture me all the time and keeping everything to myself is impossible. I suppose, it,s immensely boring to read all these complaints, one can say they are unreasonable. Who knows...

It,s my birthday next week, by the way. I,m getting 17! Completely unbelievable. I,m not excited about it at all. I am already so old, time passes by so quickly and I have done nothing, absolutely nothing. It,s a weird feeling.

Hope you guys are having a wonderful week!
I hope to come back next Saturday with a more positive attitude to life, I promise :)

Ksenia. Part 2







Not at all typical of me, but I do love these photographs. Working with this charming girl was an awesome experience indeed and now I,m eager to do more portrait series.

Have a nice day,

The White One



Yay, I finally got my film scanned! I,d been waiting for it with some nervousness because actually I was not the only one who wanted to see the images as soon as possible: naturally Ksenia wanted to see the portraits too. I was afraid that they would turn out over-exposed and therefore it was a huge relief to get the pictures and see that they are pretty well exposed and I even kinda like them. Heh, something weird is happening, definitely. I like the pictures that I took, unbelievable, we are about to witness a miracle here. Ok, kidding. It,s actually a bad sign of becoming less strict with myself and my photography.

You might have noticed that I never take pictures of white cats. The reason is very simple. White fur reflects too much light, that,s it. The pictures turn out with too much contrast and a cat looks like a strange white blur. However, this photo seems to be an exception.

Have a nice day,

Vera
