I see a lot of trains every day on my way to work but this is the first time I see one that makes me want to take a picture! The repetition and movement were really cool almost hypnotic. I wish I had made a movie.

Some flowers

I got some watercolor paints but it's going to take some time for me to learn basic techniques.
After a few unsuccessful tries on landscapes, water, the sky etc... I turned to this simple flowers and called it a day! I know it's not what a "water color painting" should look like but I got to have an entry for today's blog!

I wanted to write something on the "white space" but nothing came to mind :(
