Happy Spring everyone, I haven't had the time to do posts everyday so happy belated Spring.
And, I did not jump on the bandwagon yesterday for Happy Birthday Steemit, but I'll send a card later.
I have not posted a smoothie in a long time, which is kind of funny because we do smoothies at least 5 days a week in my house. Southern Chile always has so much fruit available that we are always making smoothies. A lot of the times, I must admit, we're using fruits that are getting ready to go bad and the only thing you can do with them is make a smoothie.
One fruit th
Another one in the Camo Bikini from my shoot with the very Beautiful Nikola Weiterova IFBB Bikini Fitness competitor. This was almost perfect out of the camera but I decided I'd retouch it anyway and then develop the look.
Camera: Nikon D810
Lens: Tamron 24-70 f.28
Lighting: Two Softboxes with Alien Bee AB1600s

The title is 'Honey Thanks'. The first photo is shrimp, and the reason for the title is as follows.
My wife was responsible for my meal. It was because I was doing everything but preparing meals, but I was not fit for me anyway.
However, as people age, they change.
So I tried simple seafood dishes for my wife who likes seafood today.
제목은 '여보 고마워'입니다. 사진은 새우인데 제목이 이런 이유는 다음과 같습니다.
저의 집 식사는 사실 아내가 모두 책임지고 있었습니다. 식사준비 이외의 모든 일은 제가 하고 있었지만 식사 준비만은 아무래도 제게 맞지 않아서였기 때문입니다.
그러나 아무래도 나이를 먹어가니 사람이 바뀌게 되더군요.
그래서 오늘 해물을 좋아하는 아내를 위해 간단한 해산물 요리를 해 보았습니다.
Been on steemit since early August and I remember 2 months of zero or no payout. @blocktrades upvoted my #introduceyourself in the beginning, but it was rare to get a whale upvote back then.
I started steemit because I had just watched a recent @dollarvigilante video on youtube, where he interviewed @ned and @dan about @steemit.
What an amazing and crazy ride Steemit has been. I have two growing boys, so my time is more limited, but I'll still upvote the shit out of #minnow posts, because I remember the uphill climb.
I'm @runridefly, and I think facebook is for hometown friends a
There are more tiny strange houses at my home! They are colored, funny, odd houses with yellow big eyes and they really love the Springtime!
Sometimes, if you look around in the corners at my home-lab, you can find 2 or 3 of these strange houses that are standing close together. If you close your eyes and open you mind, you can hear they are telling about some stories and adventures.
If you have the right key, you can enter in their world, live their adventures, walk with their legs and watch with their eyes.
Don't worry, you'll find the compass to live your adventures with the tiny strange houses!
See ya soon
I am not an ornamental person either for in my house or outside, but walking in the Botanical garden yesterday, gave me some great ideas how to beautify a garden in a tasteful way.
These were placed in such a classic way that they actually enhanced the over all picture.
This dragonfly was placed as the center point in the pond, they planted some reeds which dragonfly's like to sit on all around the edge of the pond.
Right at the entrance they have placed this Dung Beetle.
Now who would have expected this grasshopper in the tree up so high.
Thought I'd share a few throwback pictures from a trip @slickwilly and I took to Jamaica back in 2015. We had a wonderful time!

First off , I would like to say thanks to everyone for checking out these posts. Astronomy has been an interest of mine since i was quite young , and just looking up at the stars and wondering what's out there. Then looking through a telescope for the first time and seeing the moon , and tons of craters , that was awesome. And then seeing Jupiter and Saturn for the first time , with your own eyes , wow that was cool. Sure it may have just been a tiny dot , but that was a planet man! A huge ball of gas out in space. But wait that wasn't all , there were also 4 or so even smaller dots. Moons! Exciting times :) . That excitement as a child stuck with me and morphed into astrophotography , but even now i still enjoy just going outside on a clear night and staring up at the stars in the sky. Staring out into the universe. And thinking about life , the universe and everything. Now , on to some pictures , but will continue on a bit after i post the pictures.
As I mentioned in the previous posting, I am not good at cooking.
But since yesterday, I have been bold and have tried another dish this Sunday morning.
In fact, it is another shrimp dish that can use food ingredients yesterday. ^^
바로 이전 포스팅에서 언급했듯이 저는 사실 요리를 거의 못합니다.
그러나 어제부터 탄력 받아 일요일인 오늘 아침에 또 다른 요리에 도전했습니다.
실상은 어제 음식재료를 사용할 수 있는 다른 새우요리입니다. ^^
'Gambas al Ajillo' means shrimp baked with garlic in olive oil.
Spanish tapas, also called 'shrimp casserole'.
Add olive oil, spices, garlic, pepperonchino and mushrooms to brew, and it will be a nice and savory dish.
'Gambas al Ajillo'란 뜻은 마늘과 함께 올리브유에 구운 새우라는 의미랍니
I love going to the National Gallery of Victoria every few months to see the new exhibits and I enjoyed the Creating the Contemporary Chair exhibition which just opened on 17 March. It celebrates the acquisition of 35 new pieces of Australian and international craftsmanship.
The blue and white chair is 3D printed from recycled materials . It is called Endless chair.
Dirk Vander Kooij is the designer and maker
The one behind it is called Shadowy armchair. Tord BOONTJE is the designer and MOROSO, Udine is the manufacturer
Love the light shining through this chair
I am not sure how to sit on this one.
This time I'll tell you about the trip to Luza and Lalsk, the Kirov region. The length of the route is about 200 km there and back. The road there is 80% dirt, but in winter it is in excellent condition - you can go at a speed of 90 km / h. There are, of course, snow drifts, which turn into a
washing board. But this is not often met. The path ran through many abandoned and semi-abandoned villages.
Our first stop was near the village of Pokrovo. Hoarfrost, the sun just came out - how not to take pictures?
Then, without stopping, we went straight to Luza. This is the small town, a district center and a railway station. The roads in it are terrible! The tracks are such that it will not leave the SUV!
There is nothing to see and we went further to Lalsk. From Luza about 30 km.
Been for a photo shoot!
Hope you enjoy 😊
We rested on the Dead Sea. While my wife was looking at the sea I photographed. I saw geometric shapes everywhere.
Look at that! Such was the Dead Sea.
Here are the circles.
This is the squares.
This is the diagonal.
This are straight lines.
Portland is known for a few things and coffee is one of them and coffee is something my wife and I really love. We decided to check out a coffee spot that was located near where we are staying and it had great reviews, Ovation Coffee. They put a unique twist on some of there drinks adding aromatic Moroccan spices to many of there lattes.
I ordered the Morroccan Latte which is your standard latte with a few added Morroccan spices and some dried honey on the top. I'm normally not a huge, huge fan of lattes but the dried honey added just the right amount of sweetness to the drinks and the spices added a little bit of
something to jazz up the steamed milk.
My wife on the other hand decided to get something a little less traditional based on the Baristas suggestion. She ordered the Pistachio Latte. It was extremely creamy, and it tasted exactly like Pistachio with a hint of espresso. It is something you should try
This is a sculture of Buster, my faithful French Bulldog who past away 3 years ago. Buster had become ill suddenly and even after spending 2 weeks under veterinary care, he continued to decline as his condition was incurable. I miss his curiosity and his adventurous spirit that filled the room and brought excitement everywhere he went. He wasn't perfect and had a mischievous side at times, but that was just Buster and that's who Buster was! :)
About a year or so before he died, my aunt brought my little cousin over and they brought some clay for us to make sculptures. Now, I'm certainly no sculptor but I did enjoy working with clay and I decided that I would make a sculpture of Buster. I never had it fired or painted, but in a way, the lack of my perfection in this sculpture kind of reflects who Buster was
Cromeleque dos Almendres, Guadalupe, Évora, Portugal
This is a very ancient 95 monoliths circle. It is a beautiful painting, lots and lots of olive trees, and cork oaks, prefect to relax, contemplate the horizon and stare at the stars away from the Evora city lights.
Also, I can say some really weird stuff happened to me there... and the folks there (Guadalupe) are really intense.
A few years ago it was found a shrine with most names from Guadalupe people written in blood, nearby the circle.
It truly had a very x-files vibe the whole set, villagers and the circle of stones, no man's trees..
I studied in Evora and it was a very beautiful place to take pictures and just relax.
Went there several times and it started to get weird and eerie, specially at night.
Until it happened to me the weirdest thing: a sort of voices in the radio and creepy static (I know what you're thinking, but n
Heute geht es weiter in der " Versteckte Perlen Berlin Reihe " mit der Graffitkunst im Wiesenweg. Der Wiesenweg ist auf den ersten Blick voll romantisch mit einen Pflastersteinstrasse aus vergangener Zeit.
Today we continue to the "Hidden Pearl Berlin Series" with the Graffit art in the Wiesenweg. The Wiesenweg is, at first glance, completely romantic with a paved road from the past.
Hauptsächlich sind dort kleine Clubs und Autowerkstätten.
Mainly there are small clubs and car workshops.
Wer aber aus Berlin kommt, wird die Strasse aus einen anderen Zusammenhang kennen, hier wurde letztes Jahr ein Rocker getötet. Sollte man n
For the Ecuadorian native tribes such as Shuar, Quechua and Guarani, the canoe is the most popular transport that allows them to travel long distances.
On a horse or on foot in the jungle it is difficult to go far and impossible to cross powerful amazoninan rivers.
So, before they start building a canoe, first of all it is important to choose a tree with light and non-rotting wood. An experienced master with a trained eye going to the jungle, he will mark a suitable tree.
Then the tree falls down and the boatmens with axes and machetes start working on tree trunk wich transforming to boat step by step.
At the end of the work leave this mess
Native family returns to home by canoe.

Do you have something about you that you are ashamed of? Are you a woman?
I understand you! Especially women, are more inclined to be self-conscious; self aware.
Is there something about you or you anatomy that you wish you could change?
Do you go drastic and alter your anatomy, against all odds?
Is that really the way out or are there alternatives?
I have added so much weight. I mean, compared to the me; that used to exist months back; i have added so much weight.
I live in a nation where over-weight or even the slightest chubbyness is considered, with a measure of disdain. Girls already lose self cofidence, because they have added some weight.
It is so evident, even on their Facebook profile;
I am chubby, just so you know
Hahaha, people undergo this much unrest here, but i have also live in a country, where weight is seen; a thing of beauty and even affiliated with affluence.
Some men, actually want their women big!
So why not love yourself, how you are?
We were made different a
