Dresden, Germany, June 2013
In one morning the Weasel encountered an unusual character – a so called Wood Duck. Is it lost, was it brought on purpose there or was just a tourist, as this type of duckies are typical for the Americas (USA and Mexico). But the Weasel was fascinated by the beauty of this apparition, and had to stop and snap a few pics. The new acquaintance was strutting undisturbed around, under the close observation of some girly-duckies, as he was showing proudly his beautiful attire around.
Dresden, Germany, May 2013
This long-legged, gracious creature stopped for a little break on the lake in the park, in a late afternoon. The heron kept me under close observation as I stopped to snap pictures. Was almost to miss my train, but it was worth.

One would think that would find remains of Art Nouveau style in Paris or Vien or some other big European capital city. The most treasures are actually hidden (how else?) in little places that, for different reasons (mainly financial) survived the great plans of modernization, remaining intact and, many, being lucky enough to be restored (also for financial reasons).
Elberadweg, Germany, May 2013
Hidden between the leaves colored in this rich, pulsing-of-life green was this little ruby-colored treasure enjoying the warmth of the sun.
Diesbar-Seusslitz, Germany, April 2013
Ever raised on the tips of your toes to catch a glimpse of what could be behind the roof-tops of the houses or behind the hills profiling at the horizon, thinking that there, hidden by those obstacles lays the big, wide world?
Klosterpark Altzella, Germany, April 2013
… is purple.
Because of all those myriad really, really tiny flowers, in all sorts of tints of purple and blue, smaller than the nail of your little finger.
Großer Garten, Dresden Germay, April 2013
Along the common European ducks and the Mandarin ducks, there was this newcomer on the lake in the Großer Garten Park. It’s a water birdie, but I have never seen one like that until now. I really wonder who was this guest enjoying a warm, sunny afternoon near the usual inhabitants of the Garten. Inhabitants which seemed to have nothing against sharing the lake with the visitor.
Riedenburg, Germany, June 2012
Structure, rhythm, and color. Nature teaches us design.
Donaubruch Kelheim, Germany, August 2012
How lucky we are, we, the today’s humans, to only hop in a boat or just go in a walk around or even on the bike, in a Sunday lazy afternoon and admire the work it took the river to master in millions and millions of years. How great we think we are and how, in fact, insignificant are, like the corns of the sand on a beach to the mighty ocean.
Diesbar-Seußlitz, Germany, April 2013
This old castle, rotten inside, stays like a testimony of past centuries, that now seem more like a dream of the modern times, a dream reflected in a little pond, in one sunny spring day.
