i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

altweibersommer

seed (of a thistle, i think) caught in a spiderweb

new texture from kim klassen: "word"

frame is a freebie from free digital scrapbooking.com

das hoch "sepideh" (ein weiblicher persischer vorname, den ich bisher auch noch nie gehört hatte) beschert uns dieser tage den denkbar schönsten altweibersommer. allmählich hat es sich wohl herumgesprochen, dass dieser terminus nichts mit alten weibern zu tun hat, sondern vom althochdeutschen "weiben" (= weben, von spinnennetzen) abgeleitet ist.
noch sind viele blätter grün, aber jetzt geht es dann ratz-fatz... und ich erwarte (hoffentlich morgen...) das eintreffen meiner neuen fotokamera... die hab ich mir verdient;)
there is no exact equivalent to the german term "altweibersommer". it translates literally "old ladies´ summer", but actually it is deriven from "weiben" = "weben" in modern german, which refers to spiders´ webs. it comes closely to the "indian summer", which actually is a bit later and is associated with the colorful autumn leaves. well, we have the sunniest weather here, i could take photographs from morning to night (and i hope tomorrow will come my new camera...).

    Ich mag das Wetter auch im Moment, aber heute ist es schon ganz schön kühl draussen.

  2. Beautiful Caught In Flight - you've captured this so nicely. We are experiencing an Indian Summer here in London with autumn leaves at our feet and, bright blue skies and high temperatures - the best of our summer so far! pen x
