  6. Thanks v much for your nice comment on my blog and your follow! I like the idea behind your blog (+ the contents, of course). It’s, indeed, all about the little moments in life. Ideally, little moments of bliss. And, it is important to capture them. In that sense, ‘carpe diem’ and have a great day.

    1. Thank you so much for such beautiful words πŸ™‚ It is true about the moments of bliss… and the importance to draw our attention to them, and capture if possible. So that we would not get stuck in the rougher moments and times. Have a beautiful day!

  7. For as long as I have been following your blog I just never got around to looking at the about me page Elina. By the caliber of your photos I would have never guessed you just picked up this hobby such a short time ago. I’m looking forward to see your images in the coming years if they are this outstanding now. I’m glad I stopped by now to learn a little bit more about the talented woman behind the viewfinder. Have a great weekend πŸ˜€

    1. I’ve always liked watching and taking photos but with a point-and-shoot camera it was very different. I was dreaming of a DSLR for many years already and once I finally got it a whole new world of photography opened for me. I learned what is aperture, shutter speed etc. and could finally take the kind of photos I’ve always wanted to take. There is so much to learn still but this is also the fun part… I guess this hobby will last a lifetime, there will always be something new to try. I’m so glad I made this blog for my photos and thanks to this met wonderful people and inspiring photographers like you! Thank you so much for your kind words and support Joe! Have a great weekend!
