My friend Girlie requested that I feature my orange cactus for this WS entry, so here it is.
Last week I bought a new one, this time in deep purple color… aint that color interesting?
Here’s where I bought my cacti, the famous Flower Market in Amsterdam
here they are, all ready to be brought home, the tiny ones (approx. diameter 5 cm) were 3-for-Euro 6,00 and the slightly bigger ones (behind) were Euro 4,75 per piece.
please if you have extra time, do visit my other entry HERE. Have a wonderful week to you all!!
Beautiful MrsWorkingGirl tagged me about Entrecard’s User ID Number. I seriously forgot about this tag so I am ashamed of me, truly, completely…am madly mad at me! …so sorry Meeya for 4getting *LMAO!*
The rule is simple. Go to your Entrecard and click the Get Code tab. In the widget code there’s the user_id=710, as in my case. Or you can access your Entrecard widget in your sidebar and look for your user id. After that, add your user ID number below.
Example: if your Entrecard user id is 1234, then place your number and blog (and also the link) above my entry.

Ano ba yan! Muntik na akong maglupasay sa sahig dahil parang wala talaga akong mahanap na apat na kantong pwede ko gamitin para sa tema ngayong Huwebes na ito. Bakit kaya ganuon, minsan ang mga ideya parang tubig na dadaloy sa isip mo, minsan naman kahit anong piga sa utak mo, ni-patis walang lumalabas bhu hu hu! Kaya ayan, repeat performance ng mga magnet ko na lang, mga magnet na ginamit ko ng nakaraan na Huwebes. Sulitin na ng husto ang pinangbili, hmp!
Sa unang piktyur, ginamit ko ang P&S ko na Canon S5 IS, ang setting ay ‘Scenery/Color Accent’. Wala itong flash at kulay dilaw ang lighting ko, pero dahil sa setting ay kulay lang ng magnet ang lumitaw. Naghanap ako ng wine glass na medyo malaki ang bibig at nilagyan ng tubig para may extrang elemento naman na ginamit.
Sa pangalawa naman, ginamit ko ay Canon Rebel XT, wala ding flash at dito kitang-kita ang kulay ng ilaw na ginamit ko (o ilaw namin sa kusina.)
Hanggang sa susunod na Huwebes mga kapatid sa L.P. Patutuyuin ko na ang mga magnet ko at baka kalawangin!
NOTE: Sasha if you read this, I accidentally deleted this combined entry, including the accomplished tag…darn! I’ll do it again, ok?
Have you seen those street whatchamacallthem, live statues? Those kinds that you have to pay a dollar, in our case, Euro so you can take their photos with you or a friend beside them. I don’t mind paying only if someone who would take my photo beside it, unfortunately I didn’t have that someone when I saw him (photo) . Armed with my zoom lens and was approx. 20+ meters away, I saw him with his back towards me and said to myself: “I don’t mind taking his rear profile” when suddenly he turned around like he felt my camera aimed at him, he caught me. I really felt guilty I tell you. Then he covered his face preventing me to photograph him more. I still continued clicking but on subjects beside him, he thought I was still aiming at him so he stood there with face covered for a good minute.
Street performers like him must really hate zoom lenses he he*

Husband, our pug and I spent yesterday in Amsterdam. The city was busy with tourists, locals and the likes of us from neighboring city who jumped on the chance of visiting since we had a dry weather yesterday.
We were waiting to cross the street when I looked up and saw this tower before us. It’s called the ‘ Munt Toren’. The date 1620 caught my eyes, not the clock. I quickly took some shots before the light turns green.
” The clock belongs to the Munttoren at the base of Muntplein, close to the renowned flower market of Amsterdam.
The polygonal base of the Munttoren (mint tower) formed part of the Regulierspoort, a gate in Amsterdam’s medieval city wall. The gate was destroyed by fire in 1618, but the base survived. In the following year, Hendrick de Keyser added the clock tower, capped with a steeple and openwork orb. The carillion was designed by Francois Hemony in 1699, and rings every 15 minutes. The tower acquired its name in 1673, during the French occupation of Amsterdam, when the city mint was temporarily housed here.”

Nahirap akong maghanap ng tatsulok sa totoo lang para sa entry na ito. Buti na lang, tyempo at bumaba ang presyo ng Geomag, puzzle ito na puro magnet. Ilang taon ko ng gusto bumili nito kaso lagi akong namamahalan, pero dahil sa L.P. napagastos na ha ha! Nag-enjoy ako sa pagkuha ng mga larawan na ito kasi sumikat ang araw ng mag ‘shooting’ kami ng mga magnet, ito resulta:
Itong una ay ipinatong ko sa rebulto na naka display sa bintana namin , pinaglaruan ko ito sa photoshop kaya kung gusto nyo makita ang resulta, paki-click lang itong larawan…at makikita nyo hindi lang alikabok sa rebulto, pati na rin yuong sinag ng araw na parang nagbigay ng dramatic effect sa kanilang halik. At pagkatapos ng pagkuha ng larawan na ito, nilinis ko na ang rebulto ha! ha! ha! nakakahiya ako!
ayun ulit sya, gusto daw nya sa mabulaklak mag pose eh , e di pagbigyan ang modelo di ba?
2 sets ng Geomag ang nabili ko, ito naman ay sa set ng may pastel colors…ipinatong ko sa putol na sanga ng puno-ng-peras na nasa likod ng bahay namin.
sila naman ang mga kasamahan nung dilaw na tatsulok, isinabit ko sa kapiranggot na sanga yuong kulay ube at ibinalanse ang dilaw at rosas sa ilalim nito
silang tatlo ulit, nakasabit lang ay yuong kulay ube…nakita nyo ako? Hindi nyo lang alam kung gaano ako kasaya dahil sumikat ang araw, malnourished kami sa Vitamin D dito eh.
Salamat po Lord at hinayaan Nyong sumikat ang araw!!
To be honest, I had a hard time finding my triangle for this theme. I got lucky when Geomag (magnetic puzzle) was put on sale. I’ve been wanting to have this so when I saw the chance to use it for this theme I finally bought me a puzzle…and since the sun was shining, I had a great time using the pieces as subjects.
For the first shot I used a statue displayed on our window. I played with photoshop and if you’ll just click it, you’ll see not just the dust but also sun rays which gave a dramatic effect on the kiss. After the shoot I cleaned up the statue. Second shot was the same triangle this time I placed it in the middle of a plant. 3rd shot, the yellow triangle came from another set of Geomag – pastel colours. I just placed it on a tiny twig of a pear tree located behind our home. 4th, purple triangle holding onto the yellow and pink underneath and 5th shot, still the 3 of them balancing on the short twig.
I can’t explain how happy I was because the sun was present that day. Thank you God for the sun!
