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!

Off the road

Sometimes the best moments in life are found off the road...

So, let's take a road map in our hands, sit in the car and explore.
There are hidden treasures of your land everywhere. You just need to open your eyes, be open for new perspectives and make some space for new impressions. 

Your land is your land (literally) or your body... Allow yourself to start a new journey into unknown; it can be just for a day or two. It's worth it!

Green-land

There's a land in Slovenia I call 'Green-land'. Everything is green: the woods, the fields, the meadows, even the river...

I was lucky this year - I could spend some free days there at the end of April. Just the right time to find the nature in all its green glory. Bright greens, dark greens, sap greens, emerald greens, yellow-greens, olive greens, 'you-name-it' greens... The Earth is Art indeed!

It was impossible to take only one picture of this Paradise. You know me... - there's so much to see, so much to explore.

Playing with blurry backgrounds and blooming trees...

...and lying down on the grass.

'Beauty is where you find it' - and I like to find it in the ordinary, everyday things. They calm me down, give me energy and inspire me. They are a big part of my life...

What's your favourite green-land?

Great escapes

The theme of photoproject 'Beauty is where you find it' (#BIWYFI) in February was: Escape daily routine.

I should first admit that my biggest escape happened on that day, when I packed my bags and escaped to Austria. Many holidays that I’ve spent over the years in Austria leaded me to the place, where I said: I want to live here. And here I am.

When you find your place under the Sun, which means everything to you, it is not hard to find also the ‘thing’ that pulls you away from the daily routine.

My (great) escapes out of daily routine, away from loud kids, away from action, alarming state…, are to be found in nature. Between the mountains and the lake. Here I feel safe, here I feel wonderful. 

Every day nature shows a new face, that inspires me. Every day I’m looking forward to my little great escapes. Every day I’m thankful for every moment I spent here, where my heart sings. And this year, February was unbelievably giving, unforgettable!

I really hope that your escapes from daily routine are inspiring, refreshing and unforgettable too. And if not (yet), listen to the whispers inside you, pack your ‘bags’ and take the time off. You won’t regret it!

(Or check the link above and get inspired by different kinds of escapes that all the photoproject’s participants shared on that blog).

Simplify

If I had chosen a word for this year, it would have been: simplify.

That's a whisper I hear from Nature when I try maneuvering through our chaotic life. I think, the more you learn and the more you know, the more you come to the situation when you have to choose. Choose how you want to live, what to say, what to do and how you want to do it.

It is absurd how many things we have to choose from, but it is so hard to find 'the right one' for us. It is absurd, how many theories and news we hear daily, but there's hardly one to believe or trust. It's hard to tell what illusion is and what not. 

So, it is time to simplify. And, yes, it is that simple!

In the movie 'Power of One' it was said: 'You'll find all the answers in nature'. So, go away from daily dramas served by the media, and seek the answers to your questions in the nature. Her answers are short, clear and simple. Yes, it is that simple!

Wishing you simplified days!
