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*

WS # 25: Munt Toren

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.”

It’s almost the end of the weekend on my part and I must honestly say that I did not had the chance to do much outside photography yesterday even though it stopped raining for few hours. I guess I

Featured Friends

It was a pure delight when Willa, a blogger friend and forum chum I know for few years now, has decided to include me on her Featured Friends post, thank you Willa! It took me a while before I was able to post this but as they say, it’s better late than never *wink*

Willa was also creative enough to include a graphic so please feel free to use it as well when you get tagged. This blog was chosen so now I will do the same for 5 other friends. When you feature your friends’ blogs, you will help increase (hopefully) their page rank and yours. You can read more on this here and here. So keep the ball rolling, make your own 5 featured friends. To return the favor, make sure you include the name of the person who recommended you.

So here’s how it goes:

1.Willa is one of my featured friends.

2. So when Willa will make her featured friends for the week, she has to include my name and she will pick 4 or 5 more from her own list of friends.

3. She will inform ALL her featured friends to keep the ball rolling.
If you use Blogger, you can add your featured friends using the new page element ‘Link List’. And here are my Featured Friends: ZJ, Ate Marie, Meeya, Girlie and of course Willa.

Happy tagging, friends!

pooch.jpg

This cutie wasn’t our pooch. I saw him walking with his boss one day and I just had to take his picture so when the boss gave an okay nod, that’s exactly what I did. wasn’t he a cutie?!

The temperature that day was quite low thus I thought it was but appropriate for the pooch to be protected from cold. But my husband is opposed to this. Friends, even I, have bought shirts and jacket for our pug but he can never wear them. Why? Because my husband says it’ll cause any dog to be sick because it’s unnatural to clothe them. I think that’s not true! We totally have opposite views in this matter. Why would wanting to clothe your pooch during winter, and when walking outside, cause him death?! I said to my husband that if you wrap your dog 24/7 then that’s unnatural, that will kill your pet. But for a short time and during winter, I feel that it’s a sign of love and protection for any pooch.

‘Bah!’ says the husband.

I said: ‘ you just don’t want to walk the dog when he’s wearing his jacket because he definitely looks hotter than you!

-I won the argument, but jackets and shirts stay in the closet.
