Unexpected Possibilities


I purchased my Nikon 50mm prime lens because I liked the fact that you can play with depth of field and bokeh according to different sources. On my DX sensor, 50mm are effectively seen 75mm, that means I thought this would also be a nice lens to try portrait photography and this is true. The weather is so bad that I don’t like to go outside with my camera, but I tested the new lens inside. I visited grandma and grandpa, and my uncle, and I shot several portrait photos and liked it. There are a couple of other reasons … Continue reading Unexpected Possibilities

Barbecue Time


Yesterday we decided to have a barbecue in the evening. We drove to our garden, the weather was mixed with rain and sun. Pretty crazy and choppy, it changed every 20 minutes from sunny day to rainy, really crazy. But we have a roofed area and a garden house anyway so that the rain didn’t stop us to start the barbecue. We didn’t prepare our own salad, this time we did buy some of these ready-made salads in a store. However, they were not bad either. We had potato salad, but we also had a salad called “Party Salad”, that … Continue reading Barbecue Time

December Barbecue in the Garden


Yesterday we decided to have a barbecue in the garden. It is already quite cold outside but this didn’t stop us to go shopping and to drive to the garden. The husband of my mother came up with this idea and he convinced me and my mother. We bought some beer, different meat, potato salad and cole-slaw. We enjoyed the evening even if it was cold but we did warm our hands near the fire and we also have a small cottage with a heater in the garden, so that we could eat inside where it was warmer. I enjoyed … Continue reading December Barbecue in the Garden

Tasty German Barbecue Combination


Above you can see a very typical German barbecue combination. Not that every German barbecue plate would look like the one on the photo, but I´d say you would at least always find sauerkraut and potato salad on the table, and meat or other things for sure. I used garlic dip and herb butter to make my steak even more delicious. I am a big fan of barbecues. I always laugh when people can´t await to put the meat on fire but when we are finished, people look totally exhausted because they did eat way too much. But if there … Continue reading Tasty German Barbecue Combination

If You Have Polish Neighbors, You Will Get Tasty Snacks…


My mother has Polish neighbors and they are very friendly. My mother even laughed and said they are in fact too friendly. What she means is that they often bring things to my mother like delicious snacks and food. For example if it´s weekend and if her neighbors have visitors, they also will bring some of the delicious things down to my mother and that happens often. But my mother gives them things too, for example if my mother’s husband did cook again some delicious German food. I noticed it is a “give and receive” there and I wish I … Continue reading If You Have Polish Neighbors, You Will Get Tasty Snacks…
