Weekly photo challenge: Sunset

As I have mentioned before, I don’t like direct photos of sunset. I like sunsets, but 99% of sunset photos are just plain cheesy and bring back very unpleasant memories of an ambitious art student with a knack for abstraction, who was constantly told that sunsets, flower compositions and naked women paintings will sell, and abstract art won’t, and therefore she should stop doing what she wants and loves, because nobody has the time to do what they want if they want to make money. I hate¬†people telling me what I should do and absolutely nobody has the right to do that when it comes to art. So here’s a sunset photo without a sunset. Well, almost.

Taken in Maastricht, Netherlands.

Weekly photo challenge: Fall

My first thought was that the challenge was not about the current time of year (I think of it as Autumn), but about falling. Well, I suppose it could be both, as it isn’t specified. I couldn’t think of anything cool for the latter, so here’s an Autumn shot.

These days have been sunny and very warm and generally lovely in Netherlands. I wonder what it’ll be like when I go back to Ireland on Saturday.

Weekly photo challenge: Home

I’ve been looking around the house and checking out what angle I could shoot for the “Home” theme. But it just wouldn’t be right, because this house is not my home. Not yet, anyway. I don’t feel at home in it, although it’s getting better, and I’m getting used to it.

So the only photo I can publish for the home subject is  one from my photo archives, taken in my previous apartment, where I still feel my home is.

Weekly photo challenge: abundance

One of the seals in Howth, Ireland. They are being overfed by tourists so badly, that they can barely move, and yet they beg for more food. And people are stupid and don’t realize that they’re harming those poor creatures instead of helping them.
