52 weeks of pics for 2014

took me some time to be able to approach close enough to get the shimmer of its wings... it is the downside of close-up lenses with shy creatures! but so worth it!

Bokeh and flower

I recently got a book about flower photography... It is not something I often do so I try to progress... Here I was happy of the nice bokeh effect I got using my macro lense!

an easy way to print instagram square pictures // imprimer les photos instagram

This is a bilingual blog... I will try to get all of the post in both english and french... bare with me, I'm trying!  
J'essaie de rendre ce blog bilingue... soyez sympa avec moi!

As you might have noticed... I am a little addicted to instagram! Instagram and I was looking for a way to print square pictures! There are a lot of offers for regular sized pictures but I was finding the "square market" lacking... then I heard about printic and I had to try the service!
Comme vous avez pu le constater je suis accro a instagramInstagram! et je cherchais un moyen facile d'imprimer mes photos carree. C'est comme ca que j'ai decouvert printic!

so I ordered sunday evening a few test pictures that I want for a mural project to test the quality of the print! Monday afternoon I got an email telling me my order was shipped!
and today (wednesday) I got my order! Great and fast service!

J'ai passe commande dimanche soir pour tester avec quelques photos (j'ai un projet de deco en cours) la qualite de l'impression et du service en general. Des lundi j'ai recu confirmation de l'envoi.
et ce matin (mercredi) j'ai recu ma commande! service rapide!

I have to admit I love the bright orange envelope and the little P sticker on the back is a nice touch!
As a side note you can have the whole thing delivered to someone else! The "look" of the packaging makes it a nice little gift!

J'adore la pochette orange et l'autocollant "P" derriere! tres sympa a recevoir! En envoyant sa commande a une autre adresse le packaging en fait un cadeau tres sympa!

So... about the pictures... For the mural I choose the square format (10cmx10cm or 4x4') without the inch of white space at the bottom (those would make awesome fridge magnets with a little caption!) and here they are:
Bon, et les photos alors? c'est  le but apres tout! Pour mon projet j'ai pris le format carree (10cmx10cm) sans les 2cm de blanc en bas (mais je pense les prendre pour faire magnets avec une legende sympa). perso je suis ravie!
As you can see those are nice quality prints!! these prints were 1.59euro/$2.19 the first print and then 0.39euro/$0.49 per print with free worldwide shipping!
 Vraiment une belle qualite et pour 1.59euros la premiere photo puis 0.39 euros par photos supplementaire. L'envoi est gratuit partout dans le monde (super pour ceux qui ont de la famille loin!)

So if you want to try here is my referral code 37AA02 which gives you an extra $5 (and for me as well) off your order! really worth it to give it a try! It gives a fews prints for free, just add my referral when you pay.
 Si vous aussi vous voulez essayer j'ai un code de parrainage qui donne 5euro et donc permets de commander quelques photos gratuitement! code 37AA02  il suffit de l'ajouter au moment de payer et ca ote 5euros!

just a little guy

This little guy was on the side of the path we were hiking... he looked so curious! I had to snap a picture!

I love the ocean!

a walk on the beach at the end of a long rainy day... just enough contrast to snap a few picture... and after that I was able to try out my new cleaning kit! oh joy!

a magical sunset during my vacation... after dinner on a small fortified island we went for a little walk and saw the sun set...
