July 2013

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me… alone

I’m discontented with homes that I’ve rented
So I have invented my own.
Darling, this place is lovely oasis
Where life’s weary taste is unknown
Far from the crowded city
Where flowers pretty caress the stream
Cozy to hide in, to live side by side in,
Don’t let it apart in my dream

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me alone
Nobody near us to see us or hear us
No friends or relations
On weekend vacations
We won’t have it known, dear,
That we own a telephone, dear…

Day will break and I’ll wake
And start to bake a sugar cake
For you to take for all the boys to see
We’ll raise a family
A boy for you
And a girl for me

Can’t you see how happy we would be…

W.P.C.: Grand 2.0

After my previous post, I could not stop thinking that one can actually find a ‘wow factor’ or something impressive even in a little thing, like a small puddle, because, in facts, I had a small stunning puddle in my mind. So here it is.
Somewhere in the woods around Cape Corse, there was this little pool highlighted by a ray of light that passed trough all the trees branches, just to greet some small tadpoles.

W.P.C.: Grand

Grand. As a sixth post on my brand new blog, I was looking for something more recent to show you, when I bumped into the Weekly Photo Challenge. It is asked to post “that special element: the ‘wow factor’ of a scene, that magical quality you’re always out looking for and so excited to capture with your camera”.
As you can imagine, in the past few years I’ve collected thousands (literally) of pictures, so picking a single photo for a challenge, is not always an easy task. Plus, I’m that kind of person who is likely to lose herself in every little thing, from a leaf to a small puddle, and that makes it damned easy to find ‘wow factors’ just everywhere!
Thus, I’ve tried to remember the last time I felt deeply stunned, while standing still in front of something. That something, is Pointe de la Parata, Corsica. The place is so much beautiful, that I would just call it magic.

It was a real rush to make it until there before the sunset. Of course, I couldn’t wait till the morning after, ’cause the light would have never been as good as at dusk. ;) However, before reaching the tower at the very end of the cape, I stopped running with my camera when I saw these flowers and had one of my ‘Alice in Wonderland’ moments (this post will help you a little to get it). A long one. Someone had to wake me up.
No idea of what kind of flowers are they, tho!
