Color Splash Sunday - Food

This weeks theme is chosen by The Mommy over at Twenty Little Toes.
MMMMMM, I love food, being a chef I guess that is good that I love food. But to tell you the truth I do not have on photo of food on my laptop that would look good to color splash. Guess I was lucky I didn't have to start cooking something that will look good to color splash in the end. Didn't feel like taking the time for that. So instead I went to work with my partner (who is a pastry chef) and took a photo of the restaurant he works in. Since I was there during the afternoon brake no food was being sent so I couldn't take photos of food then ether.

I actually really like the logo of this restaurant, it is located on the Junden platz, (Jew square) where a memorial for the Jews stands. And all around are old Viennese buildings. Walking through town yesterday, I remember how much I just love the architecture here.

Well onto my photo. From Ella's

Head over to Amy's blog Artistically Amy for more color splash photos.

I ♥ Faces - Celebrating Teens

This week over at I Faces we are “Celebrating Teens” Photo Challenge, I don't have any teenagers are ound where I can take fotos of, there is my brother in Law but I don't have any of him, came to remember when my borther (18) was here I did some fun photos of him jumping of a railing at night with the city of vienna behind him. Quilty wise not the best pic, but I just love it. I think it shows what teens like freedom, what is better then jumping.I still need to workout more of the settings with the flash and so on, LOL, it isn't easy to time when the flash will go off befor, I think i had the lens open for 2 seconds to get the movement, then I had the flash flash just befor the lens closes again, to get him frozen in air.

So here is my entry for this week,

So head over to iheartfaces.com and cheek out more fotos of teens.

          I ♥ Faces - All about babies

          I love babies, but then I guess most people do, over at I ♥  Faces this week the theam is babies, but since not everone has a baby it can also be baby clothes, baby boots anything that represents babies. My big baby is 4 and my little baby is one, but I when he was a few days old I was taking photos of him for his birth annoucment, This is one of my favort fotos that I took, though I didn't end up using it on his annoucment because it didn't fit into the big pictur. I am sure this week will be VERY hard for Amy & Angie to sort through what photos will go through to this weeks guest judge.

          So head over to iheartfaces.blogspot.com to cheek out more photos of cute little babies.

          Color Splash Sunday - Toys From Yesterday

          What a fun theam Amy has chosen this week in her color splash sunday, old toys that are older then 10 years. Well there are a few, from an old ride on tracktor from my partner, but it dosn't look old. Or my teddy bear I got for my first birthday, thats nerly 24 years old. But we went and visted my Grandparnts on the weekend, so my kids GRATE grandpartens. They grew up during the second world war, they were kids at the time, but the problem with growing up druing the war toys isn't somthing you have. I asked my grand mother if there is anything of hers that she still has, but she didn't have anything, then she rememberd my granddad has a teddy bear, this bear is going on to 70 years. To add a bit more to it I tryed making the photo look a bit older, LOL, I don't think it looks older, well it looks like I tryed. Guess is still have some luring to do.

          Any way here it is, The 2 bears to the left and right of my granddads belong to my dad and my uncal. So 3 out of those bears would fit well into this theam.

          This week we are playing, don't we all love play, now having 2 kids having photos of kids playing isn't that hard, I took a bunch this weeks of the kids playing in the kiddy pool (now don't know if we can still call this a kiddy pool what they have with slide and so on) but they didn't have anything on and do not want to post those pics so everone can see them on the net...

          Thow for the yellow them I used a simmler photo of my Mr Mar JR, this week I am using one from Miss Mar and her HUGE bubble. This toy is just soooo fun, but hard, I think she got about 5 big bubbles but never one to leave the bubble blower. Here is my lovely girl with her huge bubble.

Taking phtotos of a whole bunch of things, then when we were in the graden on saterday Miss Mar found a ladybug, I put it on the rose bush and splashed that one with this out come.

          I found a new cool way to make photos black and white, or how ever, make them more silvery or like this one a very light green shade, I use the gradent tool in photoshop, I think it is so fun. So no more plain B&W but interresting colord black and whites....

          I ♥ Faces (or feet) - Barefoot Week

          This week is the non-compitative week again, this week they are raising ahwerness for a charity called Soles 4 Soul. This week we don't need to have faces but feet in our pictuers, as many or as littel as we like, bearfoot or just shoes. I have HEAPS of photos of feet, who dosn't when they have kids, kids feet are just so cute, even more when they are itty witty little babies. So after you have looked through my post head over to both I♥ Faces.com and soles4souls.org

          Mr Mar Jr's feet at about age 5 days.

           This next photo was taken at the beach in New Zealand, on our second vacy there. We had a fun day running around barefoot on the beach.

          Theas next photos I took them on the weekend in Austiras biggest womans race the DM Frauenlauf I also ran this race and took 31mins 17 seconds for the 5km. My best time so far, my goal is to get to run it in 30 mins, so I was only 17 seconds off that...

          Though, the photos are from when we were getting the start numbers on the day befor during the kids race, so more kids feet,

          Grils (4 year olds) waiting for the race to start. I was suprised at how fast Miss Mar could run while holding my hand, the littlest were alowed to run with there parents, Miss Mar probably came in the top 10, and if I was holding her hand from the get go I think we could of even made the top 5 if not 3, but I didn't think she would be abel to run that fast. She also got confused at the turn around since it was 100m one way and 100 back again. LOL, she did a few spins at the top end befor I was abel to direct her in the write postion and grab her hand and finnish running to the other end with her.

          The boys (4 year olds) Race
