On Tuesday I met up with my friend in down town during a lunch break. It was both a happy and a sad meeting: It was so good to see her and catch up, but - After 3 years in Denmark she and her family are moving back to their homeland this fall! I will miss her sweet and tender spirit ... but ... we'll surely keep in touch both by mail and when possible, meeting both here and there.
As I was biking back home that day, the skies turned all of a sudden dark and it started to rain ... These soft, small raindrops were falling down - like small tears ... Saying farewell is not easy - Yet, we're to be thankful for the shared moments,cherishing them and our friendship.
Next morning I just couldn't find my keys! I checked every purse and bag I could get hold of, and also all the pockets and other places, I usually keep my keys. But without success - My keys we're nowhere to be found.
Well, I had to go to work without my keys to our house. I was wondering if the keys had fallen out of my purse, while I was biking the day before.
When I came home, my husband smiled to me and says, that he has found my keys on our back door! I could then remember, that I had let the keys stay at the door as I was picking up the groceries ... and I must have left them on the door as I went inside ... Well - now my keys are found!
"Mirror" was a theme of I Heart Face's daily photo challenge. It was already late, so I grabbed my phone and took a snap shot of the bathroom. Thereafter I used different iphoto applications to edit it:
1. Original image
2. Using Snapseed to adjust the contrast and PhotoToaster's Fade Out-effect (remowing frames)
3. Photo Toaster Polaroid-effect (removing frames)
4. Picfx Black and White-set Black 1, Urban-set Contrast, Cross Process- set Cross One
5. Photo Toaster - Deluxe: Lite Portrait (removing frames), Mextures: Yololomo Orientation 3 opacity 30, Dusted, orientation 3, opacity 30.
The roses from last week are decorating the kitchen of my friend now- it seems like the roses would be growing from the plate, that has a few painted flowers on the edge. I have edited this snap shot with the Glaze-Photo application.
A week with happy moments, sad moments,
a bit confusion, restlessness,
laughter and tears,
