Dear friends of the Canary

Wow. I have just realized that it is the 1st of December today. Time definitely flies. I barely got used to the idea that it was November and now this: the year is basically over and so are 6 months of blogging on WordPress. Let me tell you, honored friends of the Canary, it’s been an entirely positive experience sharing my observations with an amazingly diverse blogging community, and I almost feel I have made some real ‘virtual’ friends out there. All an illusion, an artificial world that has nothing to do with reality? Nah, not entirely. It’s a sphere in between, which continues to be fun to explore. I seriously enjoy your feedback and our exchanges. So thanks for this.

The Canary will switch continents tomorrow and, then, provide you with what I hope to be interesting winter observations from Berlin.

Here’s an overview of what’s been cooking in November (click here for more observations-of-the-canary):

Have a lovely Sunday, y’all.

    Thank you canary. Its great to have you on here. A real addition to my site. An open invite for other bloggers to share

    It’s always a pleasure to come back here and see what you’ve produced. Quality and attention to human life is important to such pohtography, and you never waver from them.

    Well done, and good luck in Berlin. I’ll be watching.

    I like the drama in your images. A silent drama and it makes your photos intense. Led by a cat that shows what he is thinking about our world. Priceless. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hehe. Thanks, Antonia. You totally got what’s fascinating me about peoples’expressions: the silent drama. Snapshots can be so revealing, can’t they?

        Not mine. I never get to the vicinity you succeed. it’s probably a bit cowardly and I think they will take offense.

        There is a solution: Why don’t you try using a strong telefoto lens (preferably with a zoom)? It is like with taking pictures of shy deer… if you get too close, they run away (the intimacy is ruined) or – in the case of humans – they might show you the finger which could lead to a entirely different kind of drama;)

        It is a solution of course. I now go and buy a lottery ticket. ) And also hope Santa.

      • December 2, 2013

        …there are great used ones on ebay or so… no need for the lottery, bank robberies etc ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Qualitative harvest of November, little canary ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • December 1, 2013

      Merci. The pet and nature pics are dedicated to you, Mrs. Ambassador!

      • December 1, 2013

        Thank you, I’m very honoured ! ๐Ÿ™‚

        De rien…it issss my plaeeeeeeshoerrr (German transcription of a French-intonated ‘pleasure’). Uhh, I wish we could exchange little sound-messages on wordpress.

      • December 1, 2013

        Haha that would be funny ! But you may be disappointed : my English accent is rather good, as I speak English every day, more than I speak French… My partner is English ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • December 1, 2013

        Ohhh, too bad. But English accents are great, too. By the way, we seem to have quite similar lives in terms of cats and partners. Fascinating coincidences.

      • December 1, 2013

        I realise that I’m grateful to my blog ! You are one of the surprisingly nice encounters it allowed me. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • December 1, 2013

        Same here! ๐Ÿ˜‰
