Christian brought us a new house mate: our resident orchid. It’s beautiful and I had to shoot a picture of it. In black/white it makes such a timeless impression. It will majestically reign over our household.
After a long time, I went for a run on the beach, and during a highly needed rest in the shade of the Naples Pier I saw this White Heron, the bird of the nations snowbirds, having lunch in the shade, too. I like how the high contrast filter enhances the shadows of the foot prints of other invisible Beach Creatures and of course how the water turn really blue…
Every time life gets a little too hectic and I feel rushed. I take a deep breath and look at the beaches in Naples, Florida. I never get tired of the place. I probably have hundreds of photos of sunsets, sunrises, dramatic Florida clouds. And then I painted quite a few sunsets and beach views in oil on canvas between 2008 and 2010.
I already mentioned that I use Eyeem Android application to upload and share some of my mobile photos when attending events of catching a theme in my photos. It’s has a great feature called Vibe, or more uses is the term “tag” – that all photos have in common on upload and then every one can see the event’s photos from all people. #Streetart was one common Vibe that resulted in a whole Art Projection Project by EyeEm in Berlin at the end of November.
This month the Blog of EyeEm featured three different Vibes by other photographers, among them the “Florida Clouds” album by yours truly aka #pauli.
It’s obvious that Florida is a nice place, but we didn’t know it had such nice clouds. Birgit Pauli-Haack aka #pauli captures them perfectly in this album. Follow it to be up to date with her latest pictures or, if you’re dwelling in sunny Florida, add your own photos!
And EyeEm also provides an embed code for the album, so you are able to see all the photos posted and feel free to posted your selection of Florida Clouds. The most interesting time of the year for dramatic sky events is the summer time and afternoon thunderstorms are building.
