For Fleeting Photo Challenge I have lot of shots, that were taken by accident. Mostly when I was switching off my phone camera and it took the last shot on its own. The shots can be split in two groups, the first group and the first gallery there are shots of the bottom, mostly you will find the floor, shoes, foots etc on it.
The second group are shots taken on the move. Playing with these shots in instagram gives beautiful abstract atmosphere to them and I hope you will enjoy them :-).

It is almost summer, but the weather this year seems to think it’s not. And what summer means to me? I will show you at some shots taken in Southern Moravia 3 years ago during our family vacation.
Summer is seeing sunflowers at the fields.
Sunflower field in Lednice
Summer is visiting castles and old palaces around Czech Republic.
Summer is doing nothing and enjoying the sun whenever and wherever you want.
Garden coffee at Lednice garden
Summer is when there are flowers on the street.
Summer is when you don’t go to sleep at the evening, because you go to the summer festival for music.

Summer is when you don’t go to sleep at night, because you are having fun with your partner and with your glass of beer.

I love costumes, I love dressing up for some special ocassion and I really love taking vintage photos.
A few years ago we visited Bulgary, we travelled around the coutnry and several days we spent by the sea at small town Pomorie. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there, specially evening walks on promenade and by the sea. Fortunatelly, the first evening I found a special stall, where they had a lot of beautiful colorful dresses and they were doing vintage photos.
Promenade and colorful dresses
We were looking in astonishment how a family with small girls were carefully dressed up, every little detail was handled.
Family getting ready for the shot
And finally I made my husband to go for a photo as well.
Choosing the right costume and dressing
The next day, as we went for the final photos, we were watching another family being taken, really great again!
Great family shot
So I made my husband for one more photo!
Our two shots, my husband is astounding in uniform
And as a result we have two beautiful photographs taken hundred years ago :-).
Final vintage shots

Last weekend I have visited Kutná Hora and there I had found a nice sign that I want to share with you for The Sign Says Weekly Photo Challenge. More about Kutná Hora you can find on this link.
The sign I found in the souvenir shop simply said:
The sign says: 2 + 1 free
A bit strange and scary to find it at the souvenir shop at the bone chapel, which inside looks like this:
And all the decorations in the chapel are done from the same “material”, the real human bones and human skulls.
Therefore it is really strange to find this special offer:
The sign says: 2 + 1 free
Fortunatelly the small sign next to the first one says:
This sign explains what’s on sale – certificate
Still I would feel a bit strange to buy three skulls, despite the fact that one would be for free :-).

Today I want to take ayou for a visit to one of the nicest Open Air museums Rumšiškés. It is located in Lithuania, on the hill above Kaunas sea (lake, in fact :-)). Museum was opened in 1966 and it has about 50 buildings mapping the village life in 4 parts of Lithuania. I love wooden buildings and wooden crosses, the place is so lovely. Enjoy my shots.
