Bits and Pieces

Life In Pictures #1

Linda invited me to join her #LIPlinkup today, which I’m happy to do. I’m also happy to steal her description in order to spare me the effort of describing her idea in my own words:

What is “Life In Pictures”?

Take as many pictures as you want throughout the week or day to recount the things you did avoiding as much text as possible. Your job is to guess what happened! For more info, click here.

I’ll be honest with you: this one is a challenge for me because

a) I’m not a skilled photographer and I’m not even aspiring to become one. Most of the time I’m happy as long as I can manage to occasionally capture my dog’s cuteness before she jumps out of the frame.


b) I have a hard time keeping quiet about anything, so posting uncommented pictures will require a huge amount of self-restraint.

…which is probably why I’m taking my time rambling away right now instead of showing you those pictures already. 😉

The pictures you’re about see (I promise, I’ll get there!) don’t really capture a complete day. As far as this requirement is concerned, I just failed, sorry. However, I still enjoyed the challenge because it forced me to pay more attention to my surroundings, which is a nice change for DSCF1666someone who DSCF1663tends to spends most of her time walking around with her heads in the clouds and her eyes on the pavement.

AND FINALLY – Here we go:

Life In Pictures


PS: did I mention how I also really enjoyed playing around with PicMonkey? Just in case you were wondering why all the colours look a bit off and unnatural…I tried to step away from the most extreme effects, but I couldn’t resist giving in to the temptation of applying some of the less colourful ones. =)

But it definitely could have been worse – I mean…considering…:

  1. You’re a coffee drinker in the mornings and enjoy studying outdoors (hence the laptop on grass)? Are you located in Germany?
