A lovely new minesweeper for Android he made

Minesweeper
Pretty, isn't it?

Bf finally finished that minesweeper app he's been coding for ages because he couldn't find any he liked in the Play Store and needed an excuse to make yet another app. It has four levels plus a custom one, so that I can play minesweeper the way I like it, a huge grid and only 10 bombs so I can click randomly and keep opening huge white spaces! It's weirdly satisfying.

You can download it here, and read more about it on his blog post.

It's getting really cold.

cozy sweaters

Angora pullover / Basic cotton pullover - Mango Outlet
I'm not allowed to catch 'em all, but I did get these four. The darker ones originally, the cream/light pink after I realised I was going to wear am wearing them all the time anyway. So cozy and warm.

Every study-stuff space needs it's own pair of gladiator heels.

Traum Bilder

"Die Sirenen erwachen, wenn die Vernunft schlafen geht", Max Ernst
Die Sirenen erwachen, wenn die Vernunft schlafen geht, Max Ernst

"From the 1960s onwards, the fashion entrepreneur Theo Wormland (1907−1983) amassed one of the most important private collections of Surrealist works in Germany. Masterpieces by Max Ernst, Richard Oelze, René Magritte and Pablo Picasso have been on loan to the Sammlung Moderne Kunst since 1983 and radiate a unique brilliance of their own. In 2013, the Pinakothek der Moderne is celebrating the bequest of the Wormland Collection to the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen."

Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria
It really wasn't a good day to photograph. And the weather cheated on me too, I was expecting a semi-sunny day and 18C, so I was in a light Spring jacket, dress and ballerinas.

I might have found my favourite place in Munich.

Belleville et Monceau - Paris, Part Five

Rue Denoyez, Belleville
Rue Denoyez, Belleville

On the last two days there we were taken on a tour of Belleville by a friend of bf, who showed us all the pretty semi-hidden places there, and the day after we had a stroll and lunch at Parc Monceau before leaving to the airport.

Museums - Paris, Part Four

Les Nuages, Claude Monet, Musée de l'Orangerie.

We visited three museums while in Paris, one I really wanted to see, Musée d'Orsay, bf wanted to see the Louvre's Egyptian collection, and I found out about the Musée de l'Orangerie while we were there.

Little things - Paris, Part Three

This post is for all the great little things we found in Paris and loved, and that didn't fit in the other posts.

Sightseeing - Paris, Part Two

Fountain at Jardin des Tuleries

On the first two days we didn't have much of a plan, and bf wanted to see the Obelisk (he has a strange attraction to all Ancient Egyptian things).

Light - Paris, Part One

View of Paris from the top of the Galeries Printemps.

I've upload already the photos of my week in Paris on Flickr. One thing you might notice there is the amount of photos of skylines, clouds, and plants. The sky and the light were consistently beautiful all day, especially in the late afternoon just before and during the sunset.

summer things & weddings

Westpark, Munich
After true canadian maple syrup pancakes.

This was a very relaxed and event free summer, apart from a small wedding and Paris, so I have very few photos to show, and most of them I shot with film, which of course I will take a few months to finish and then some more time to develop and be able to scan. I think I should give creative shooting another try sometime.

Paris - sneak preview

Bolo de arroz em Paris
Bolos de arroz at the first boulangerie we went to in Paris. 

I still have waay too many photos to go through of this summer, Paris' 600 photos included, and I'm still backing up everything since 2011, when I didn't have a proper organizing/editing method. And all of this has to be done while bf is out for work so I can use his Mac that has a properly calibrated screen.

In the mean time, here are some quick cellphone pics from Paris.

melody & hidden skyscapes

Month of summer holidays in Portugal, weddings, preparing for a week in Paris and rediscovering, editing and backuping old photos instead of going through the recent ones.

here's an old favourite, Melody Gardot singing beautifully at Casa da Música, Porto, in 2010.

Praha



The weekend before last was a long one in Germany which happily coincided with my birthday, and I had never been to Prague. That's really reason enough for me to want to go anywhere, so that was my present.

Phone camera to the rescue.

If you're around Munich until March 17th, there's a special exhibition of tropical butterflies at the München-Nymphemburg Botanischer Garten.

winter is ending

Tuesday was a great day to be out in the middle of nowhere in Bavaria. It was snowing all day and in huge snowflakes, not the is-this-rain? type we get in Munich, which is a great way to make you feel like waking up early in your holidays was worth it. This was the view from the hotel room:
