Characters

When I'm out and about in the crowds, I look for people who catch my eye because there's something about their character that make them 'special'.

Sometimes it's the way they make their mark among the others.

Sometimes it's the way they move.

They might dare to do something you're afraid to do.

Or they know how to control themselves, their body.

Sometimes they look at you with that deep, wise look.

Or you feel in tune when hanging around them.

Sometimes you're fascinated by their 'happy-to-be-here' look.

And sometimes the whole personality pops-out like a shining star.

Some characters are so strong that you notice them right away, but I believe, when you stay long enough among the people, you can find something that fascinates you in every person you see.

Captured

Following the previous blog post, there's one more thing to notice when talking about for-ever.

The traditional garment. It looks like this tradition, this style is immortal. It seems it was, it is and it will be here forever.

In a way it is captured in time. It fits into any year, to any age and gender.

Little details make the folk costume unique, personal and creative.

But I believe it's not only the dress that makes you 'beautiful and interesting', but also how you wear it.

When you feel comfortable and relaxed wearing it, you become a whole person - a person that attracts attention and admiration from other people.

You glow!

You shine!

Traditional garment has no age limit.

It fits to young and old, big and small,...

... and from the top of the head to the toes.

Try it one day - maybe it bewitches you too!

For-ever

Some things are meant to last for-ever:

celebrations (with a style)...

focusing on important things...

tender thoughtfulness...

smiles...

and smiles and smiles and smiles...

greatness...

humbleness...

glowing personality...

a little connection with roots...

great company...

and walking home with a fulfilled heart...

No matter the year, the season, the age... - some things are meant to last for-ever.

Transformations

It was a long, beautiful summer - a good one for taking pictures and not so good one to sit behind the screen and update the blog regularly. Oh, well, let's hope things will get back to normal again now that the days are shorter and cooler...

So today, I'd like to take you on a special journey - to the place where the past meets the future...

It is colorful.

It is melodical.

It is happy, although in pain.

It is mysterious...

...and serious.

It is brave...

...and it is strong.

It is modest...

...and proud.

And now imagine 'you' - how would you look like when transformed by the past?? Summer is almost over and it's time to put ourselves together again. What will you choose?

Treasure hunt

Yes, that's how I call it when I'm on the move. Just me, curiosity and my camera.

The 'Beauty is where you find it' photo project theme of month May was: 'On the move'. An easy one, as I always feel 'on the move' when I'm on the way to unknown or known places with my camera. My camera makes me move!

And it always feels like I'm on a treasure hunt - not really sure what will I find, but it's always something precious, something to fill my heart with.

The colors of newly discovered jewel made me go click-click-click. So pure, so calm, so special! Walking around the lake was like a meditation, observing the colors was like watching the best movie ever, listening to the songs of various birds was like listening to the best concert in my entire life! Only Nature can be such a brilliant creator! Only Nature is full of surprises!

So, go, move, hunt for your big or small treasures! Focus on what makes you happy, inspired, eager to learn more. There's a treasure for everyone out there!
