Today’s Flower Collection 2

Looking at small flowers on the street, they all have their expression.

Coffee Art

I love smell of coffee. I love taste of coffee. And I love to look at coffee art. Nicely brewed coffee gives me happiness in the morning.

To make nice coffee:

  1. Coffee beans are very important.
  2. How to roast coffee beans is also very important.  Wood roasted coffee is excellent – wood roasted coffee takes twice as long as that of gas roasted coffee, preserving  all natural and full-flavoured taste without burning.
  3. How to grind coffee beans is another important fact – timing, method, and size.

Birds in Funny Spots

I like birds. Sometimes they appear in some strange spots which makes me smile.

Not special flowers, just on the side of the road.  They still give me messages.

Cat’s Mystery

Cats are potentially mysterious animal.

This is my favorite cat.  On the day he didn’t come to me (normally he does), instead just sat in the middle of the road and watching something we can’t see (that was my impression).

This is a very nice pussy cat, too.  Its eyes have different colors.  To me, very mysterious.  This is not the first one.  I saw another cat like that before.  It won’t be very uncommon.

Loving Chappy & Happy Budgies

I have two lovely budgies.  They care for each other, which gives me very good feelings.

Sunset

I like sunset time.  All the sunset is different and beautiful, so I never stop taking sunset photos.

Flower Bouquet

I found a beautiful white flower bouquet.  On the same tree, only this bunch was full bloomed. All others were still buds.  Mystery for me.

Starting the Blog

My first day for the first post.  I am fascinated to see how many beautiful things we are surrounded with.  I did not notice (or did not care about) the fact until I learned how to take photos about half year ago.   “How to take photos”….. just push the button…..that was all what I knew.  The very basic knowledge helped me how to take better photos even just with my small compact camera.  It’s so small that I can carry everywhere in my bag and whenever I see beautiful things I can capture them.
