The sea and the snake

Spent another day at sea. Met a friend… A snake in the sea! Never seen that before. Sand was so hot, the snake won’t cross it! To get to the dune in the other side. A lot of people were taking pics of the snake and stayed in the way. Then one tried to scare it to the “other side”. […]

Old analog TV antenna

The old analog TV antenna last winter was a huge problem in my mom’s roof. She is living in flat in old churches house. She isn’t owner, she’s renting for ages. I spend my 18 years in this flat. And back then we had analog TV with heavy & big antenna. In the winter the wind tilted it down on […]

Salacgriva

Finally we are in my home town. Its been a wile. We are happy to meet my family and great new baby boy in my brothers family. Now girls have three cousins – boys! As usully we spent time at the seaside. Sea? Its actually the Gulf of Riga… But I call it “sea” all the time. We had +30C […]

Salacgriva

I went to Salacgriva to charge my batteries! I didn’t take a camera with me but I took a laptop to be sure I have an opportunity to write a blog post or check my email (don’t like to check my mail on the phone). So, my mom loves to walk at seashore and dunes and she took me to […]

Out of sight, Out of mind!

I grow up in a small city – Salacgriva. It’s near the sea… or to be precise – gulf. The Gulf of Riga. Never called it gulf. Sea. Always. Spent my summers sunbathing in sand and swimming – it’s safe – no jellyfish or sharks 🙂 Now I’m 200 kilometers (about miles) away from the sea and people ask if […]

OMG!

It’s been a while! So.. a lot has happened in the past month. Biggest things are: Taking care of MY photo studio, one of three local kindergartens said no to the conveyor style photography company and choose me – basically, give me a chance to try capturing 280 kids in portraits and 13 group photos. I had to make an […]

Grandma’s house

My grandmother Agafia died in the year 2004. Unfortunately, I can’t share a picture of here with you at the moment. I think when I’ll get back home I will find Agafia’s picture and will write a special blog post about her… But for now, I can share a most peaceful place on earth – my childhood memories, my grandmother’s house. Our caravan is […]

White Swans: Mute swans

Till today I thought there are only one species os swans… well not true! There are three different species in Latvia. These ones (below in the picture) are Mute swans (Cygnus olor). These two are in the pond next to our grandmother’s house. Beautiful birds. And so big! I had the chance to see them very close the other day […]

Big Cat

I love this cat! I love how big he is! I asked if I can take a picture of him to show to my followers. He didn’t say anything so I think he don’t mind 🙂 He is only two years old and he was rescued when he was 5 months old. Last summer he was lost for the whole month […]

Hometown Salacgriva

Our next stop was Salacgriva. We all wanted to meet my mom. Girls were sad when we left Gauja National Park, cause they meat wonderful friend Normunds and didn’t want to leave. But when I told that next stop is Salacgriva, they were so happy! Linna especially! So, after a one and a half hour drive, we were in Salacgriva. […]
