So here we go:
When in Riga it's one of my favorite things to do: Go around the city, find some nice place in the park and feed some birds. Of course much more fun when with someone. If you're patient enough, birds may become friendly and sit on your hand.
Fall in Riga is always extremely beautiful.
And when it is dry and sunny it looks very fairytale-like.
My stupid cat always lies on my notes when i need to study. But i guess he doesn't care :D
One of the photo trips in early winter in Riga. Famous LAIMA clock in the center which are the traditional meeting place.
Over the past few years winter in Riga is quite cold, but never starts earlier than late December-January.
One of the small waterfalls in the park.
Lol, i once decided to see how i would look if my face was beaten up :D Yeah that's real blood, but it's not from being beaten, lol. It's from the bleeding nose i occasionally have. Still looks cool. I scared my mom so much she'd beat the sh.t out of me for that joke :D
Finishing with birds eating some bread.
And here's a little bonus i was promising.
You ever wanted to take a photo of a falling star? It's easier said than done, since the thing is a random process and you never know when to start shooting, because you need long shutter time. Not that the resource i found solves the problem, but gives a little trick-cheat how to get a photo like the one above. So technically it is not a falling star: it's a satellite of the system called "Iridium". Flying at the orbit of around 700 km, these things sometimes reflect light from the sun to earth. That we can see as a bright star moving very fast in the sky.
So the main problem is to find the time when to take a photo. Luckily the Iridium company has provided us with JUST GORGEOUS service of creating a personal timetable of when you will see the satellite over your area! and it's easy!
