After rain freshness

Photobucket

i like the rain but especially love how everything looks after it stops.
it looks like everything is different after it.

especially love the after rain freshness.
love the colors, love how the ground smells and how fresh air surrounds me...
everything seems so clear and refreshing.so uncomplicated and plain.

it reminds me of the unforgettable Pink Floyd`s `High Hopes` verses :

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter

Vote for the best google doodle!

I stumbled upon this interesting article on google and thought to share it with you.
You might have noticed different doodles during special events or holidays on google.

This doodle thing has become a speciality of google to celebrate some special days.
I like it a lot , i find it very amusing.

Last day i
noticed the `new doodle contest` .
28.000 K-12 students drew different google doodles under the theme `What i wish for the world`.
It was really lovely to see all of these creative , differently seen doodles , but the most special thing was to read the way the young artists described their works ;) So do not miss it!

This year the contest is opened just to the US children.
Voting is now opened and it will end on 18th of May.
The winner doodle will appear on google`s site on 21st of May 2009.

After a long period of rainy days , last day i stumbled upon a marvelous rainbow in Tirana. It was really amazing at least for me since i have not experienced many of them.

And i can definitely say that ,up to know except for the rainbow i had seen in Bosphorus ,Istanbul this was the most amazing one ;)
It looked like it was dividing the city ;)

I had never seen a rainbow looking so close to the city and so down to earth ;)
I wanted to share this genuine moment with you ;)
Enjoy the lovely rainbow of Tirana!

ps : you might want to listen to this while watching the photo ;)

Rain Lullaby

Raindrop Rhythm
©Fannie L. Houck

Heard the rhythm of the raindrops
Dripping to the ground.
Heard the rhythm of the raindrops
Dropping all around.
Heard the rhythm of the raindrops
Drumming on the rafter.
Heard the rhythm of the raindrops
Drowning out our laughter.



April Rain Song
© Langston Hughes

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
the rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night -
And I love the rain.

Polaroidmania

I`ve always loved polaroid photography.

I love everything about such photos , the tones, warmness of colors, vintage feel they have , their atmosphere .The emotions are so very tangible in such photos.

I love the old fashioned style of them.The photos i have added to this post belong to me but are not pure analogue polaroids , they`re just shot with a point and shot digital camera and then turned to polaroid using one of the many digital techniques you may find on net.Sorry for this little cheat ;) , i wouldn`t prefer it if i had a real analogue polaroid camera ;)

still life

As many of you might have heard , Polaroid is transforming itself from an analog Instant Film Production Company to a global Consumer Electronics and Digital Imaging company.

Many analogue polaroid lovers are protesting this and different campaigns are carried out.You can check out below.Please sign the petition to save polaroid film too.
