Two in the sunset

The common knowledge says the sunset is a special romantic time, this couple seems to be aware about that.

Ana eats apples – cinemagraph

Is not brilliant from a photographic point of view, having no tripod, no lights and such, but it was an unique moment: the first time when the 4.5 months old ate solid food (apples), she grabbed the spoon to feed herself.

More creepy dolls

If a week ago I saw a creepy urban doll, now walking in the morning in a village I encountered a rural one. Which is creepier, you decide.

Hummingbird Hawk-moth

First time when I saw one was a couple years ago and then my reaction was “that’s impossible! hummingbirds don’t live here… and this is an insect, not a bird!” Now having the opportunity to take some pictures, I documented a bit: yes, is an insect looking like a hummingbird and is obviously called the Hummingbird Hawk-moth or, if you prefer Latin, Macroglossum stellatarum.

Thistle in ths sunrise

I woke-up early in the morning, climbed the hill and waited the sun to rise only to meet a big setback: the sky was completely clear, therefore the sunrise image boring: only a disc of fire behind a distant black wall (another hill). Fortunately, a nearby thistle bush kind of saved the day (some pictures of it are made into desktop wallpapers for my general blog.

Viral

Unexpectedly, a picture I snapped last week became viral on facebook, the stats below are “likes” and “shares” I can see directly, there were a lot of duplicates copied and uploaded separately by other people, for which I have no way to count them. On top of that, the picture was picked (copied from facebook) by mainstream traditional media, TV and newspapers like Realitatea, ProTV, Gândul, EVZ or RTV.

viral

What was it about? Street garbage and people discarding it is a big problem in Romania and people eating sunflower seeds and spitting them on the ground are a special case. Friday evening, walking in the nearby I.O.R. park I assisted to an unexpected episode: a couple of local police officers confronted a group of youngsters practicing this bad habit and offered them a choice: take a broom and clean the place or pay a fine. This is original and funny and also quite unexpected, since the police rarely react to such things. I posted the image on social networks and the rest is history, a lot of people got enthusiastic over the police action.

There is one more side of the story, the police officers were not alone, they were accompanied by a couple of agents working for the private company hired by the park administration. One of those agents asked me not to show the logo of their company, which was printed on their shirts. I listened and excluded them from the frame. Their excess of secrecy made the company miss a huge free advertising opportunity.

Learning

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, still I hope this dog learned something useful today.

“See your hands? See my hands? We have so much in common!” I guess this line may work.
