Scavenger Hunt Sunday (2)

Hello everyone!
This is my second participation to scavenger hunt sunday! Now, unfortunately, since I forgot that it is today and since I really wanted to participate to this one before it's over, I haven't had time to take new, fresh photos. So these are older ones, that I picked for this occasion.
Let's start!

Bonjour à tous!
Aujourd'hui je participe pour la deuxième fois à scavenger hunt sunday. Malheureusement, j'utilise des photos prises il y a un moment déjà. Donc voici mes images!

I didn't have many yellow pictures, but candles always produce yellow light (well my ones do):
Je n'avais pas beaucoup d'images jaunes, mais les bougies (en tout cas les miennes) produisent toujours une lumière jaune:

Now, something that made or makes me smile:
I selected the huge spider statue

Maintenant voici quelquechose qui m'a fait ou qui me fait sourire:
Une immense araignée!

I had nothing that was really ancient or antique, but I saw this very, very old camera one day:
Je n'ai rien qui soit très ancien ou antique, mais j'avais vu cet appareil photo un jour et il me semble très vieux =P

Splash! was one of the hardest to find. But luckily for me, I had some pictures from a day at the lake:
Splash! était une des plus dures à trouver dans mes photos. Mais heureusement j'en ai trouvé qui étaient prises pendant une journée au lac:

And finally, after the rain comes the sun:
Et pour finir, après la pluie vient le soleil:

So, as I said: after rain comes the sun. And this little object has seen a lot of storms and rain. But he's still hanging in there,relaxing in the sun.
Donc, comme je l'ai dit: après la pluie vient le soleil (ou le beau temps?) et ce petit objet a vu le mauvais temps, ca c'est sûr! Mais il se repose tranquillement au soleil maintenant.

So that was it! It's the first time i write a post in two languages, English and French. What do you think? Should I continue? I started this because I notice it more and more that a lot of my viewers come from France.
Well thank you for reading/looking at my participation!
Have a wonderful day!

Donc ceci était ma deuxième participation au scavenger hunt sunday! J'espère que ca vous a plu et je vous remercie d'avoir visité mon blog! C'est la première fois que j'écris un article en deux langues, pensez-vous que je devrais continuer d'écrire en français?
Sur ce, je vous souhaite une agréable journée!

Today I went and bought a special kind of gift for my friend's birthday who looooves nutella!
Before I wrapped it, I took some photos and here they are:

So that's the present I got for her and I hope she'll like it! (Well, I know she will =D ) This big pot is perfect for nutella addicts like her !
So that was my post for today, thank you for passing by!

Today's post is just some simple photos of a few old fairy statues I found in my old toys.
I tested close-up shoots to see how they would come out, cause they are very small. Well, in the end each picture was taken at least five times cause my camera just didn't understand that there was something in front of him .
The quality is also a bit disappointing, due to the lack of light in the room.
But it was worth a try, and now I know that my little camera doesn't like taking very small objects in picture.

April weather is not called like that for nothing! I never really noticed this month's weather these last few years but it is so strange!
Suddenly, it's sunny, nice and warm but in a few minutes, BAM! it's raining...again. It's like we're in Ireland! This weather in France is like the summers in Ireland: wet, damp, and cold.
So today, while I was doing homework (math, ugh!) I saw the clouds moving quite fast in the sky and I thought this would be great for a moving picture.
I know I'm late and not in the right theme for the moving picture link-up party
but I'll add this picture just for fun.
I've been wanting to post something for a week now (nearly two) on my blog
so this is the perfect occasion = )

So here it is (nothing too special):

Well, I didn't add this in the moving picture but here's the sky after another 20 minutes:

With rain drops on the window of course = P

I just realised how depressing these photos are =P I'm sorry if I depressed anyone with these grey skies !

Well, maybe my cat can make you happy again XD
This is my cat called Kitty (very original, I know)

Yes that's her: the little chubby, fluffy creature -who by the way is so posh (even though she doesn't look it here), I sometimes think she should be a royal cat-.

So that was my ...strange.. post today =D must be all that math getting to my brain!
Thank you for reading, or even just passing by and having a look at my little blog,
and I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!

My new homemade light reflectors!

Hey everyone! For ages now I wanted to make these "homemade light reflectors" so that I have more light in my room when I take photos.
Well, I ran out of aluminium foil, so I only made two small ones.

Here they are and here are two photos to show the results:

Well, in conclusion I don't recommend these if you are a very dedicated photographer/professional cause they aren't that great. But for a beginner like me, they're fine.

Hope you all enjoy your day! Photoholic. Pin It

The Storm

No computer, no TV, no radiator... no electricity!
But luckily : one camera.
So what does a storm + camera + Photoshop equal?



Now that the storm is finally over, I can put these pictures up on my blog.
I wish I could have some photos of the lightening but lightening = too fast and camera = too slow.

Hope you all have a lovely, cosy weekend!

Tips & Pics

I found this link-up party on this website: jaymiblog  and I decided to give it a try.

So, the subject of this link-up party is to show how you can modify a photo to make it look different and then explain how you did this.

Here's my photo before:

and after Photoshop:

I prefer the second one, what about you?

With Photoshop, to get this effect, I used some of my "actions" (all free by the way), and here I used : the "boost" from  pioneer woman  (I used it twice) and then I used "fresh and colourful" from pioneer woman   as well (click to see website). I might have brightened it a little bit but that's mostly it.
It's funny how you can change an image so quickly with such simple steps.
So that was it, hope I have time to participate next time again!

P.s. Everyone should go check out the blog: Entre2Objectifs. It's a new french blog full of great photos!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Live, Love, Travel

My first participation to Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Hi everyone!
It's the first time I participate to this link-up party. I read about it today and noticed that I have till tomorrow to participate, so if my photos look a it dull it's because I had no time to take new fresh ones, and had to take a few old ones which I quickly photoshoped.

So here they are:


I had no idea what photo to use for the "life" theme. But when I found this one, I just felt like it suited this somehow, even though it doesn't exactly.
But this image just reminds of how fascinating life is, and how many people and animals exist on this planet. I felt this way when I took this picture.

2.Fragrant + Pink

I thought that this photo just fitted with both: Fragrant and Pink.
It's a quite simple picture, nothing too special but roses smell wonderful and this one had a beautiful color.


What is more obvious than a child loving his toy?
This image was not a good quality one because this little guy wouldn't stop moving. But this image was so cute (in my opinion) and it is very obvious that children adore their little buddies.

I think I jumped one theme, but I don't have time to find a photo for it, so I just leave it like that.
I hope these pictures were not too boring, I think I would have done a better job if I had more time.

Anyway, I wish everyone a great week!
