Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #7: Everyday Moments

Everyday moments – maybe it is easy to forget how important they are, because (I) we seldom succeed in living as mindful as we should… Thank you, Amy, for the opportunity of highlighting some of those precious moments.

Everyday I have to care for my best friends, Totti and Milo. Following their lives is a gift.

Even if I see to their daily needs, sometimes a professional grooming is necessary – especially if you want to win next competition!

Not yet….are they best friends, but it is coming. Milo is slowly learning what he can do… or not…Totti has an angel’s patience – he is really too kind and considerate for his own good.

So, I try to walk Totti alone, just him and me, once a day. Picking berries, finding wild animals – and apple trees – in the forest and meadows.

Some days we go to our summer house, or just to the sea, to relax, and only – exist…

…which is so important…Life is short – someone will soon grow out of those sandals.

Taking a boat to one of the small islands in the archipelago is always a treat.

Driving home to our ordinary house again, the farmers are usually busy in the fields, but this year there is not much left to harvest. The drought has taken its toll.

Every month – not every day – we usually visit some interesting exhibitions. It could be about almost anything. Here a fashion and theater theme by designer Camilla Thulin.

This summer there was no rain – but all the other summers there usually are everyday moments with umbrellas!

During summer, spring or autumn – or all of them – we sometimes get a bit tired of everyday life, and decide to hop on the train/ferry to our neighbor country, Denmark.

Somehow I love train stations…

…and ferries. Some guys are very, very tired of the everyday thing…but there is always room for a ferry feet stretching!

Strolling the streets of Copenhagen is always a treat. To us, Denmark means good food, fantastic exhibitions, lovely people and yellow houses with cosy corners!

  1. A beautiful collection of everyday moments Ann-Christine, it is so lovely to see Totti and Milo together :o) xxx

  2. I love all the different ways you took this Leya. The photo of the pink shoes on the rock tugged at my heart, because time really does fly by. My favorite photo was of the feet in the air at the train station. And the mothers expression. We have all worn BOTH pairs of those shoes. lol. Nice collection of everyday….

  3. Lovely post, Ann-Christine. I love your dogs and your ”snapshots” of everyday life. Beautiful. I love train stations too–the excitement, the bustle, the controlled chaos. It’s wonderful seeing the world through your eyes.

  4. What an inspirational post Leya of course your adorable dogs share your everyday moments and I love how you give Totti some individual me time. The light and composition of the hay bales is superb. My computer has gone AWOL along with my blog post ability, I’m reduced to keeping in touch with the iPad, but not able to post from it. I’ll be back when normal service resumes….

  5. A great collection. I loved the colours of that last one, such a lovely bright place. And your dogs are adorable as always.

  6. Wow excellent photo shares you are right we do miss a lot. I love your dogs and the photo with the shoes and umbrellas are so good. I love the photo with the man and his dog. It’s so sweet. Happy Sunday 💜🦋

  7. A story-telling everyday morning series, Ann-Christine! The morning walk with Totti, the beach, rain… are wonderful moments you captured. I love the last one especially.

  8. Hi Leya. You pictured your everyday moments so beautifully. We haven’t had much rain here in Canada also. The extent of the forest fires has been scary. Love your post. ❤
