    Weekly Photo Challenge: State of mind.

    This week photo challenge has a tricky subject. I was looking for some of my pictures that could show that somehow. I liked this picture, but, do dogs have states of mind? I’m sure they do.

  • Horse


    Yesterday I visited the National Stud in Newmarket, Suffolk. There is a big thing about horse racing there. Here is my try at a horse portrait. And not just a normal horse according to this. A really promising one…

    Two pictures with birds on them from my Lisbon trip, a few weeks ago. Going to the beach in December is great but it wasn’t my intention to have a swim, so I just enjoyed playing in the sand with my daughter and stalking seagulls, like the ones shown in the first picture. This was taken…

    More about friends…

    I don’t know how I managed to get all of them posing this way. Maybe I read them yesterdays post… 😉

    Poisonous blonde.

    Small, cute, but clearly dangerous… I saw this little frog in London aquarium. The same place where I meet this crocodile. I don’t know the name of its species, but those bright colours in her skin must mean something. I wonder what its predators (or preys) may think about them. Are they irremediable attracted by…

    For Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape. I’m sure animals in a zoo are constantly thinking in ways of escaping.
