Beautiful Sky


I shot the photo above in 2016 and I probably didn’t upload it because I have way too many photos, and I can’t upload them at the same time.

I hope you like the picture. Continue reading Beautiful Sky

Enjoying the last warm Sunbeams of 2013

I did sit down on a stairway and enjoyed the last sunbeams. We had already some cold and rainy days in September but sometimes we do still have a warm day, like today. As often I saw some tourists in the city but I guess they will be the last ones for this year apart from the people who travel here to visit a white … Continue reading Enjoying the last warm Sunbeams of 2013
