It has been quite a while since the last Photographic Monday. Thankfully, I recently went through the photos I took on my holidays last year, and found I had quite a few shots to share with you. (Yes, I can take some time to actually see the photos I took. It’s not good.)
Those holidays were spent in two of the nine islands of the Azores, Faial and Pico. I’ll only be showing you photos of Pico for the time being – otherwise, this blog post would be very lengthy. Ready? Set… go!
It’s time for yet another interruption on the current hiatus (this only goes to show how good I am at hiating – is that a word? probably not). This time, it’s the moon’s fault.
It was my birthday last week, and as I’ve been too lazy to work on the photos I took of that adventure, I decided to show you one of the places where I celebrated last year’s birthday, one month after the birthday: the Harry Potter Studios.
Aah! Isn’t it beautiful?!
In mid December, I had the chance of going to one of my favourite places in Portugal: Serra da Estrela. For those of you who don’t know, this is the highest mountain range in continental Portugal, with the highest peak reaching 2km of height. Whilst it’s definitely no Kilimanjaro or Everest, it’s still high enough that snow says hello quite easily when it’s cold down below.
That day, however, the mountains decided to play a trick on us. Odd as it may be, it was quite hotter at the peak than it was down below. And I do mean hotter. Some people were walking around on t-shirts, and everyone down in the villages had their teeth chattering.
And the snow? There was some. Pearly white but hard as rock. No, that was not the most beautiful part of it. The sunset was.
I’m not a fan of fireworks. I don’t rush to the window at the sight or sound of them. I don’t gasp at their unmistakable popping. I don’t get starry eyed over them. I just think of how the money could be better spent, of how it helps air pollution, and of how my cats hate the clamour.
Still, even I must admit they can look really cool on a photo.
The following photographs aren’t mine. I found them on DeviantArt and Flickr. Just give them a click and you’ll be taken right to their rightful owner.
With Christmas just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect time to show you some photos I took last year of the two Christmas markets I went to last year, one in Manchester, one in Sheffield.
It’s time to tell you one of the reasons why I’ve been absent from the blog (although, if you’ve been following me on twitter or checking my Flickr, you’ll have guessed it by now): I went to Portugal’s first Comic Con – or to two days of it anyway.
Yes, that’s a zombie trying to escape a lady.
It’s time for the third instalment of Photographic Monday!
Today, I bring you kittens!
It’s time for the second instalment of Photographic Monday!
This time, I bring you a photo of my own I took just last Friday:
Look! There’s a dragonish/serpentish cloud on the right!
I’ve noticed that some of my most liked posts are the photography ones, and so, for your pleasure, I am introducing a new feature to Tessellated Tales: Photographic Monday.
From now on, Mondays will be the day when I’ll share photos that I like, as well as some of mine.
To start this new adventure, I’ve chosen a photo I saw on facebook a couple of times. A friend of mine, a biologist, posted it, telling the rest of us to “find the frog” in this photo:
