Portraits (Andrea on CESTANDREA still banned!)

Suddenly, while we were walking across the fields, he picked this blooming dandelion up and blew it. I told him to do it once more for the camera, grumpily he obliged:) - that's my husband.


Here you can see better the two wooden african sculptures, plus Dad and the Giraffe.

I like this portrait of my mom and brother. My Mother usually never smiles on pictures because she hates being photographed. So I have to be patient and ambush her:)

These three are nice together...

This is my brother and me, at my parent's house. I look a bit fat, I think the window does that:)

Oscar sneaking through the fern.

Barley, oh so green.

Great photos Andrea, thanks for sharing them. I wonder why your other blog is banned. I can still bring it up on my bloglines.

Cestandrea said...

Hi Sue, thanks for your comment on the pictures. In fact, I'm still feeding myself some energy out of these two weeks in nature:)

My blog CESTANDREA: it is waiting the google re-approval, meanwhile I cannot post. People can read the blog and leave comments, me too, but I can't post new posts until they "clear" it...

Mim said...

Lovely photos - hope you get your other blog back too - sometimes it can be so frustrating waiting for the approval. Nice of Miss Doodle to share with you

Approval? I'm sorry, I don't get it. I don't remember some approval process when I first opened my blog. Jeesh. Sometimes the world is a big puzzle.

Love the photo through the window. Amazing. Your husband is cute. Your relatives delightful. They look very at ease with each other. Thanks for giving a window into your life.

Andrea! What a beautiful family you have! It made me smile when your husband grumpily obliged you with a photo! You know what I am thinking... And your mother not wanting a photo taken...so like me! I do like the photo of your mother, brother and sister-in-law - they look so happy. You dad looks like the dearest man and so relaxed. And what a beautiful photo of you and your brother...that has to be a special one for your parents. Of course, the art is so much fun there...wow, so a lot of sculpture, too.

You are so sweet to share these beautiful photographs with us. You have a very, very handsome family. Very special, you are!

These are great photos. I LOVE the Shot you got of you and brother in window. Thats a fantastic shot. I love the one of Oscar in the ferns too. And we finally get to meet your nice looking hubby... and your family too. as Suki said.. a window into your life and who you are. Thanks for sharing.
Wonder if this blocking of YOUR blog has anything to do with you complaining about the blogspam that was being left on your blog?

The picture of your cat is so cute! Lovely scenic photos as well. thesoundbites.blogspot.com

Cestandrea said...

Mim, thanks for visiting:) and for enjoying my blog. Yes I too hope to get the other blog back soon so that I can put these pictures in there, they do not belong here:)

Cestandrea said...

Suki, yes, if they block your blog for reasons of spamsearching, they have to unblock it on your request, or else it will be destroyed within 20 days.

Thanks for your comments on the pictures, I had very much fun sharing them here with you. Yes we are at ease with each other most of the time - and love to laugh together.

Cestandrea said...

Kim, thank you for your comments, it makes me even more aware of the fact, that it is a great chance to have people like you and like my family around:)

Cestandrea said...

Cris, thanks for your sweet comment. I like this windowshot too, my mom (or dad I don't know) must have done a great job cleaning this window:)
Ref. blog, I think they randomly make spam research on google and perhaps the words I chose for the title of my last post wasn't right? That is what I thought, kind of religious word not to be used here? No idea. I'm waiting, it takes them long to unlock it!

Cestandrea said...

Bobbb - thank you for this sweet poem. It captures pictures of loved ones so well:) Thanks for visiting!

Cestandrea said...

Gina, thank you for your comment and for visiting and liking Oscar in the fern:) His eyes were so pretty in there..

Spectacular photos Andrea. I am very partial to the one of Oscar in the ferns. It's as if he knew you were memorializing the moment -- as he struck quite a pose. This would make an amazing art quilt!
Your family looks loving and fun. Your mom looks young and healthy - very German!!! Your husband and brother -- as Sabrina would say, "HOTTIES!!"

Clevelandgirlie said...

Do they say, "hotties" in France????? lol

A Brush with Color said...

Strange business that Google reapproval?! Love your photos and nice to see you! Sweet shot of the two of you before and behind the glass.

Martine said...
