weekly photo challenge: my 2012 in pictures

for this week’s photo challenge i decided to modify the topic a little bit, the photos you are seeing show my travels in the year 2012. it all began with a 3 weeks trip to thailand in february (with a stop in doha, qatar), a short trip to amsterdam in april, a one week trip to new york with my sister in july, a short trip to oslo in august to see the manu chao concert and a weekend trip to bratislava with 3 of my dearest friends at the beginning of november. enjoy :)

weekly photo challenge: surprise

this is my sister’s cat emilia rotköpfchen, rotköpfchen is her second name and means as much as  cute redhead.

i’m at home for the ciristmas holidays and today i was surprised that she wanted to come into my room to cuddle with me because she sometimes has a very unique character and she can turn into a little beast within seconds ;) 
she was very cute today and even posed as a model in front of my camera!

horse portraits

currently i am in upper austria and this morning i spontaneously went to a horse ranch with my boyfriend’s sister. fortunately i took the camera with me, so i had the chance for a ‘shooting’ with very special models :)
the horses did a very good job and were almost as good as professional models at posing, was fun to take these pictures!

 

a little résumé

my blog is now one month old and i must say, i am really surprised how well the first month went. i didn’t expect so many views, so many likes and so many followers! 

at this point i simply say thank you for over 3.300 views and more than 40 followers! thank you guys so much, i appreciate that my blog and my photos are being liked and hope it will stay like that in the future :)
