Getting there...

Slowly, winter is making its way in... somehow, even if it's only frozen fog particles, everywhere you look you get the feeling that snow has covered eveeything...

Proiectul Shoe Box...

N-am mai dat de cam mult timp pe blog... va trebui sa incep sa pun ceva poze din urma, cronologic, ca nu e bine deloc sa neglijam micile pasiuni pe care le avem.

Pana una alta insa am vrut sa scriu 2 randuri despre o campanie ce mi s-a parut foarte bine intentionata, care insa are si un istoric de succes in spate. Deci merita sa ne gandim putin la lucrurile astea si sa facem ceva, un gest cat de mic, pentru a demonstra ca ne pasa si ne putem implica (concret, nu doar in cuvinte...).

Randurile de mai jos sunt exact cuvintele oamenilor implicati in proiectul Shoe Box. De-aici incolo depinde de fiecare...
_____

ShoeBox.ro - Cadoul din cutia de pantofi. Participa si tu!

Ai nevoie de:
- o cutie goala de pantofi (corpul si capacul)
- hartie de impachetat cadouri. Gasesti o multime de modele de Craciun/Sarbatori de Iarna.
- foarfeca/cutter
- timp si bani pentru shopping sau sortarea lucrurilor din casa pe care vrei sa le daruiesti
rabdare …

Ce faceti apoi:
Se inveleste frumos in hirtie cutia si capacul ei, separat, apoi pui in cutie tot ce ai pe suflet sa cumperi sau ai prin casa si poti darui:
- dulciuri (ex.ciocolata, biscuiti, napolitane), dar NU ceva perisabil (ex.banane, portocale, iaurt)
- articole scolare: caiete de scris, creioane colorate, un ghiozdan, un penar sau orice altceva
- jucarii potrivite pentru varsta si sexul copilului
- produse de igiena personala: perie si pasta de dinti, sapun, sampon, gel de dus, absorbante (in fiecare an am observat ca fetele aveau mare nevoie de asa ceva)
- o felicitare de Craciun pe care sa scrii citeva rinduri pentru copilul care va primi cutia de la tine (esti liber sa pui datele tale de contact si sa pastrati legatura si pe viitor)
- articole de imbracaminte: un fular, caciula, ciorapi grosi, manusi sau orice altceva de acest fel, nou sau purtat dar care sa arate bine, sa nu fie rupt, patat sau deteriorat
- poate o lumanare parfumata care sa le aminteasca si lor de mireasma Craciunului, insa fara chibrituri, nu cumva copiii sa faca vreo isprava… Lumanarea nu trebuie sa fie neaparat ceva “fancy”, ci una “folosibila” (multi dintre ei NU au nici macar curent electric).

Am pus mai sus cateva sugestii, nu le considerati lista finala. Puteti pune inauntru tot ce intra, ce vreti si ce credeti ca ii trebuie unui copil de varsta si sexul respectiv.

Va rog sa nu puneti alimente perisabile (ex.portocale, iaurt) sau care s-ar putea deteriora/desface in timpul manipularii (ex.compot de casa in borcan de sticla).

Copiii sint intre 2-18 ani fete si baieti.

Nu lipiti capacele pe cutii, le vom lipi la momentul in care veniti cu ele, cand vom lipi si etichetele speciale cu varsta si sexul copilului pentru care ati pregatit cutia/cutiile.

Termen limita: 21 Decembrie 2011, ora 18:00

Unde se colecteaza cutiile? Locatie Cluj-Napoca: sediul iQuest: Str. Motilor Nr. 6-8, Cluj-Napoca, vis-a-vis de sediul Primariei Cluj, in curte la ING Bank. Urcati cu liftul la etajul 8, iesiti in dreapta si bateti la usa la Room D. Intrebati de mine: Valentin.

Pentru cei care sunteti din alte localitati din afara Clujului si doriti sa trimiteti cutii prin posta/curier, va rog sa folositi aceste detalii la destinatar:

Sunset in the Garden

It's OK to take some time and try to really appreciate the finest things in life - which are (almost always) free...

Getaway Place...

Simple chill-out recipe:

1. Get a Getaway Place... preferably somewhere quiet, harder to reach, ideally with no cell-phone coverage.


2. Find a slightly tilted spot with lots of green grass.


3. Just sit back on the ground and let Sandman take over :D


Check out a few more pics here:

Tangled?

I was always fascinated by the weeping willows... growing wild, quickly raising to the sky then relaxing back to the ground as if from a heavy burden... and above all I guess I like it how its branches always stay straight and do not get tangled, even if sometimes it appears so...

Spring - Mobile, Raw

Just wanted to share some quick snaps from the weekend. Forgot my cam but I just couldn't help it so I used the nasty, no-macro focus 2MP mobile phone cam.

The one nice thing though is that I can blog it directly from my phone :P

Have a great week, everyone!

It's back

Yes, we've all felt it... we've seen it... it's in the air again...
Spring is officially back in action.

And sadly, I only noticed it yesterday... In the place we're usually having the Sunday morning coffee, the air was no longer filled with smoke from the crazy party night before... one of the windows was wide opened... and through the old window, caught onto an old piece of dying wood, strapped onto an ancient metal fence, there it was... a tiny green group of leaves, a small plant awakening back to life!

To HDR or not to HDR?

That is the question... HDR (High-Dynamic Range) is a bit controversial process that adds a surreal feeling to a regular photo.
The folks that are "against" it are advocating the fact that it turns the images into more "artificial" pieces.
On the other hand, the "adepts" of HDR are stating that it's meant to present a captured moment in a more life-like way, a way that would bring up to the surface an emotion, a feeling, a state of mind that would have been induced by the respective moment (if you were there). It's supposed to be similar to how your mind would've remembered it.

I have a few HDR experiments myself, but because they're made out of JPEGs there's a lot of noise. Hey, you'll get the idea, everyone can judge for themselves. Really quality HDRs would ideally be made out of RAWs. Let's just hope I get a bit better even with the JPEGs, because I really do not expect to buy another gear soon...

first step...

another one...

addictive...

I should post an original vs HDR soon, to show the differences by comparison as well.

BTW, here's a guy that takes HDR onto another level - Trey Ratcliff's blog.
Check out Marius's blog too, he has some really fine HDRs.
...and I'm sure there are lots others out there...
