I’m off for a few days and my connection is slow,
so I may not be around for some time.
Take care everyone!
May, us humans,
learn to respect ALL living beings

Lieber Klaus, vielen Dank für Ihre freundlichen Worte! Dies ist eine Fotomontage ich gemacht habe. Ich bin so froh, dass Sie mochte es! 🙂
What a gorgeous collage. Have a great weekend Marina. I am off on a trip on Monday, so I have a great week planned.
Thank you, Donna! All the best for your trip! Have fun and have a safe journey home [to us! 😉 ] 🙂
I would like to feature your blue moon as a little square icon on my SoundCloud with a link to your blog here, would that be possible?
With pleasure, my friend! Would you like me to e-mail it to you in square form or is the existing image ok?
I came over from Frank Angle’s place. I’m so glad I did. You have made a beautiful piece with your picture of the sea and the moon shot by Galileo.
Also thank you for following my blog.
My pleasure! 🙂
Thank you very much for visiting / following my blog and thank you for your kind words. I hope you’ll enjoy your visits here as I am sure I will enjoy my visits to your blog! 🙂
A glorious capture of the moon in the photograph, Marina. As a moon child (cancer horoscope sign) I am drawn to moons. The blue color in this one in the photo is incredible. Love it … thank you for posting it. 🌝
I am almost finished with my box of tissues from crying about Cecil. I don’t think it will be enough to have this inhuman man on trial. I can’t understand why people do this and why they have no remorse. 😂😂😂
Have a restful time while you’re away. I always enjoy your artwork. Be creative … !!!
Isadora 😎 ❤️
My dear Isadora, I’m so happy you enjoyed this moon.
I can’t understand it either… I am glad however that so many people around the world stood up for Cecil [and trophy hunting]. He united us.
I hope you are feeling better and gaining pace with every minute! Sending you hugs and xxxxx 🙂
The Moon seemed extra large this Blue Moon.. 🙂 and sending you lots of Love your way Marina.. Hugs Sue xxx ❤

The sea and the moon
I need silence
like you who read my thoughts
the sound of my own voice
Now would be noise
not only words but annoying noise
that distracts me from thinking.
I need silence
I go out on the street and the same people
who know my gab
disorietate from my quick hello
who knows, maybe they think I hurry.
Instead I only need silence
so I spoke, too
now is the time to be silent
collect your thoughts
happy, sad, sweet, bitter,
there are many within each of us.
Real friends, just one?
They know how to listen to the silence,
They know how to wait, understand.
Those words from me he’s had so many
and he does not want more,
needs, like me, to silence.
A hug and a kiss, my sweet friend,
Your Ninni, from Italy
Yes, my dear Ninni, silence.
How beautifully said, my kindest friend.
I send you a silent smile – a big one.
Thank you, my dear friend.
Beautiful images, Marina. Happy weekend . 🙂
My dear Sylvia, as the weekend has now passed [sorry about the delay – i still am away and the internet is lousy], but a new week has began, so I wish you a wonderful week and August! 🙂
Thank you very much, dear Joseph! Have a lovely August. 🙂
Marina this is so beautiful, dreamy and calming, I love it!
My dear Gilly, dreamy and calming were the exact words I had in mind with this! Thank you so much. Enjoy a wonderful August, my dear friend! 🙂
Bangin’ on Love Button!
Bangin’ on the ‘happy’ button! 😉
Blue Moon means I love you! We love animals, too. Wait until you see what we can do for our animal friends! I will never stop trying!!!!
Love to you Marina!
#Cecilia #ArtGowns photo shoot begins tomorrow, She can hardly wait to show you how beautiful she is! #CecilTheLion ❤ ❤
Awwwww….. Resa! By the time I am replying to this, you have already posted it and I have also re-posted it, so you already know how overwhelmed I am by Cecilia Lionhearted! 🙂 hugs and love! xxxx
Hugs & kisses! xxx
May the wish that we humans realize the value of all life be granted by the beautiful blue moon.
Ah, Elena… indeed! 🙂 Happy August!
Lovely post, and thank you for visiting my blog.
I have been looking at the full moon from Europe and it is fascinating that we are looking at the same beautiful sight in the sky from so far away
I agree with you, it is fascinating! Thank you, my dear Magny. Enjoy August! 🙂
Outstanding, Marina! xo
Deb, so happy you liked it! Happy August, my dear! 🙂 xxxx
Wow, what an outstanding photo. Looks remarkable Marina!
Ah, thank you, Zee! It’s a combination of 3 photos which have been edited and reworked. Sky and sea are mine and the moon is by the Galileo. Have a lovely August! 🙂
it is simply lovely. Great job. 🙂
Thank you so much, YS! Have a great August! 🙂
You too. 🙂
Very nice! 🙂
Thank you, my dear Nawfal! Wishing you a wonderful August. 🙂
Wishing you a great August too. Be careful and watchful with all the craziness going on nowadays. 🙂
Wow, brilliant! Have a good break, Marina!
Thank you, my dear Richard. Am enjoying it! 🙂
Have a great August! 🙂
Bliss it is, to see the splendour of full moon, so nicely presented by you. Not happy with your taking off, marina, make sure it happens only once in a blue moon…best wishes.,. Raj.
Ah, Raj, thank you so much! Once in a blue moon may not be possible but I always come back! We all need a break from time to time. After all this image is a result of my break! Be back soon. Best wishes to you too! 🙂
Glad you liked it, Robert! 🙂
PS: .. but now I see that’s an enhancement, not a painting.
It’s a collage of 3 elements. A photo I took of the sky of Theologos, another one of the sea and a photo taken by the Galileo of the moon / and then edited and reworked.
Thanks for the info on how you did this! It’s an awesome photo.
Given the special occasion, I was wondering if you would be posting today on this topic. 🙂 … I like this one better than the other one. 😀
I thought you’d be looking out for one from me. It was unplanned and all done during my break. Still away – I’ll be back end of this week. Thank you, my dear friend. [we can switch moons if you wish! 😉 ]
In terms of switching, as much as I like the moon pic, (at least right now) I’m sticking with your original thought … besides, all the rest are paintings. Enjoy your final time of your break.
But … I hope to display this blue moon on Friday in OITS.
With pleasure! 🙂
Beautiful picture of the Blue Moon dear Marina. And wish you all the very best. Kindest regards and cheers 😀
Thank you very much, my dear Dilip. I hope you enjoyed it and wish you a beautiful August. 🙂
