I took this photo after bathe my cat Shyna. She does not like that and we don´t do that often but sometimes it must be. I mean she is a house cat and anyway not dirty but now and then, a bath must be. I bathe her once in a month or two.
She looks funny if she jumps out of the bath. But I dried her already before I took the photo above. I will take a photo when she looks funny, next time if I bathe her. On the photo above you just can see that she still has wet paws and this is why she was cleaning her paws now.
I took the photo when I took the other photo of Shyna which I posted earlier. Both photos are edited with pixlr-o-matic on Android with my Sony Xperia P.

I think flowers have curves as well and this is why I want to participate with a flower photo in the Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves. I found this flower on the balcony of my mother and the flower was in front of a white solar protection wall, which was great because layering effects work too great then. I took the Photo with the camera of the Sony Xperia P Smartphone.
I didn´t want to make rocket science with Photoshop and edited the image pretty fast with the smart phone app called pixlr-o-matic. It is an easy app and you can add effects fast but that does not mean that these effects are bad. In fact they are pretty cool! This app is just similar to instagram.
I forgot the name of the flower and the flower didn´t flourish when I took the photo. But this flower looks already great even if not being in bloom. Maybe you know this plant and can give me the name so that I can add it here as information?

I took a new photo of my cat Shyna with the camera of my Sony Xperia P Smartphone. I also edited the photo with a smartphone app called pixlr-o-matic. I really can suggest this app. You can add different effects pretty fast with this app. Yes, it is a similar app like instagram and you can save your edited photo local as well.
I liked the result and thought that this photo is worth to share. Love my cat so much, which means you can alays expect new photos of her on my blog!

I found this beautiful pink flower on grandma´s campground. I loved the colour and the shape of the flower and had to take photos. I increased the contrast of the image a lot with Photoshop when I came home from our trip to the nature. I also made a lens correction and added a vignette effect.
Now I do think the images are looking nice. Photos are taken with a Sony Xperia P Smartphone Camera. What do you think about the images? Also I would like to ask if anybody knows the name of this flower?

As said in Mom´s Birthday Blog Post, we planed a trip in the nature on the weekend. Yesterday on saturday we drove to Salem to visit Grandma and Grandpa on their campground so that we can again celebrate Mom´s Birthday with coffee and cake and barbecue later on.
Mom´s husband and me also wanted to make a Rubber Raft Tour in the sea. It was a really great day for us all and we had a lot of fun. Indeed, I took a dozens of photos but it will be hard to put them all in just one blog post, which means I will upload them as always time by time.
Watching on the clock, I notice it is midnight now. But I visited my mother yesterday, I mean some hours ago, because of her birthday. We both visited some shop´s later and I said she can choose a gift in any of the shop´s. She decided for clothes and a perfume.
Then we went to her home and talked a little bit. Her husband had to work and she had no other visits because she planed to visit the family on the camp ground next Saturday, where we all will make a barbecue. I wrote often about the camp ground and nature in salem. Which means next Saturday will be pretty cool for my mother and for all of us.
But some hours ago , I mean yesterday I came up with a good idea. When we talked on her balcony, I asked her if she would like a salad. It was a pretty hot day and we were hungry but didn´t want to eat any warm stuff. My mother said that a salad would be a great idea. We went to a store and bought tomatoes, cucumbers and ewe’s cheese.
My mother still had paprika and onions at home. She also got dill from a neighbour because he had too much in the garden. I love fresh salad and I do think I am a master in creating a good salad.
The husband of my mother came home with meat and we decided to make a small barbecue with the meat and salad. It was a great time. My mother was pretty happy about the day. Now she had a good Wednesday with us and next Saturday will be great too. Love it if my mother is happy. It was a really cool day.
Got this photo via whatsapp today. Family from Thuringia did send me the photo. What a tasty ice cream. Reminds me I should go eat ice cream soon too! I love it if you can be connected with family and friends even if they are far away.
I am always happy if I get photos from them and if they tell us what they do and experience there in Thuringia. This is why modern technology is awesome. But now, I am simply hungry for ice cream. We have some great ice cream shops in Lübeck too and I think I will enjoy an ice cream soon too!
I was a little bit bored today and sometimes if you are bored, then it might be a good idea to go through own photo material or photoshop project´s and so. And it was a good idea because I found one lolcat meme which I thought needs a little improvement.
I disliked the clearly visible reflection on the eye of my cat. I also thought that it would be funny to change the eye color with a more aggressive green colour value. I am not a photoshop professional but removing a reflection with the stamp tool or changing the colour of eye´s, is something I can do.
Also the image appeared too pale in my opinion. I thought it would be fun to create a new layer and paint with black over the black fur and with white over the white fur to give the colours more power. But I did so with less than 40% opacity on my brush tool.
And then I have noticed that there are several memes out there with the text “I don´t have nightmares, I create them!” and I thought this is too funny and fits better to my own meme, which is why I added this text to the new image. Here are both images by comparison… on the left the new one and one the right the older image…
I do think the new image looks more synthetically but anyhow interesting. What do you think? Which one do you like more? You can also find more lolcat memes on my blog if you like.
My mother and her husband invited me on Wednesday again for a barbecue. At the end of april we had our first barbecue of 2013. But this week we had our second barbecue. And it was again very tasty.
We grilled paprika spiced pork meat for example. This meat was so delicious even without dip. I did eat them with and without dip. We also ordered a salad for each of us. Usually my mother would create the salad but it was pretty late to get cucumbers or tomatoes. We ordered the salad from the Kebab Store where the husband of my mothers works sometimes as a driver. I mentioned that they have great food there and that their salad is always freshly sliced. And they brought us again a very fresh salad with some tasty bread.
Ok the salad was truly a highlight already but the meat as well. I don´t find words. Just delcisious… and my mother did warm up a french baguette too. Everyhing was tasty and here are some photos of our nice barbecue…
