Hiding ...

 - Such a cozy hiding place, ain't it?!

I'd love to hang a hammock under those branches, just above the water, close my eyes and just enjoy the fresh scent of autumn ... 

What do you daydream about?


Happy mid-week greetings,

What happens when we live God's way?


But what happens when we live God’s way? 

He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—
things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. 

We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, 
and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. 

We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life,
 able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.

In the Shade of Green Trees



Sit still with me in the shade of these green trees, 
which have no weightier thought than 
the withering of their leaves when autumn arrives, 
or the stretching of their many stiff fingers 
into the cold sky of the passing winter. 

Fernando Pessoa 






... Wishing you a peaceful weekend,
Nina

Unforged Rhythms of Grace



Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? 
Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. 
I’ll show you how to take a real rest. 
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. 

Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. 
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. 
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.

A Tribute to My Bike



It is Friday - 4 pm. 
I'm parking my bike ...



My bike is my faithful compagnion,
taking me to work from Monday to Friday.



I enjoy the rides each way,
being outside and having time of my own...
Just biking.


Now my bike is in the cellar -
The weekend is about to start.
I'm having a glass of cold milk with chocolate
- my Friday's treat. 

 
... Weekend greetings,

Nina

Tangled FX [App Happy Wednesday]


I spotted this pretty flower as I was walking in the neighbourhood. I fell for the round, high top of the flower - and the orange - green color-combination. I wanted to highlight the sharp structure of the flower top, and chose therefore to edit the photo in Tangled Fx.

Tangled Fx is a creative painterly app. It has 16 different painterly effects, from "Brush Strokes" (which I have used in the photo above) to Fibers, Swirls, Bloom and so forth. Tangled Fz allows you to adjust the strenght of the chosen effect, together with the color boost, contrast, gamma and hue shift.



I edited the photo making the following changes:
  1.  I used Camera+ -app to take the picture with. 
  2. I adjusted the brightness, contrast, warmth and ambiance in Snapseed-app. 
  3. Masking the flower in TadaaSLR-app, I created a blurry background with a bokeh-effect. 
  4. I used Mextures-app to add warm sunlight in the background. 
  5. In Tangled Fx-app I selected the Brush Strokes-effect - that highlights the flower top and also the grass  and leaves, creating a delicate painterly look. 
  6. Finally, I took the photo to PhotoToaster-app, where I chose the White Brush-frames to the photo.

What is your favorite creative photo-app at the moment?

Everything beautiful


Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. 
He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, 
people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11
