Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


Still having lots of problems with WordPress 😦 My latest post didn’t show up in subscriber’s Readers, and WP Helpdesk aren’t able to help. Boooh. (If you read this, please check out the post from last week as well!)

Anyway, it’s been a lovely sunny weekend here in Amsterdam ❤ I took these pictures with my iPhone

Aren’t these tilted trees just so beautiful?

Love autumn leaves! So colorful and perfect..

  1. Autumn beauty! That wonderful avenue of old trees in some UK cities would be for the chop! Health & safety and all that!

    • I do hope these trees get to stay just the way they are, I never get tired of seeing them leaning over me when I pass by 🙂 And autumn is the most beautiful season I think!

  3. Stunning!! Maybe I think so because my camera library has a lot in common with these types😊 or I try anyway. The bottom one is an underrated view that isn’t appreciated enough. Well done!

    • Thanks so much, Tony! 🙂 I love autumn when it’s sunny and pleasant like it’s been this weekend. Thanks for stopping by, always appreciate your kind comments!

  4. Wonderful images, Camilla. I especially love the angle of view and colors of that final image–it speaks to me of autumn.

    • Thanks so much, Mike! 🙂 Sunny autumn days are the most photogenic ones!

  5. It looks like autumn has decorated Amsterdam quite nicely, and you are paying attention. Lucky us. 🙂 And how very beautiful that street is, with the leaning (London plane? Sycamore?) trees.

    November 20, 2018 at 12:21 AM

    • Thanks so much, Lynn! 🙂 The trees are Platanus, I think they’re called Plane in English though not sure if that’s the same as London planes? In the US they’re known as the Sycamore family I think!

      • Right, that’s what I thought they were, and they go by different names in different [places (hey, can you imagine what would happen if people did that?). 🙂
        p.s. There’s a chance we may head to Europe in the spring, and if so, we may fly into Amsterdam. It would be wonderful to meet you in person.

        November 25, 2018 at 5:17 PM

        • Haha, that would be so confusing! 🙂
          I’d love to meet in person! Oh I hope you come here, and Amsterdam is lovely in the spring too. It would be so nice!

          • As you can imagine, it’s a log flight and a big expense. We might take a train to Germany then, and visit the place my grandparents came from. Who knows? It is in the dreaming stage now and I will surely let you know if and when it becomes a reality. One question – the weather in April? Not too cold? I would like to avoid crowds but not freeze. 🙂

            November 25, 2018 at 6:27 PM

            • Yes, I’ve taken that long flight a couple of times! But I’m one of those people who sleep through most of it.. April weather is the most unpredictable of all months, but in recent years it’s been quite mild. A good time to visit before the crazy tulip season kicks off!

  6. Beautiful views! I love sitting or lying beneath the tree and looking up on a sunny day.
    Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with WordPress. I’ve actually had very good luck with their helpdesk. A couple of times recently I emailed or chatted about a problem, and they were quite persistent in trying all options until it was finally resolved. They were courteous and helpful from start to finish.

    November 20, 2018 at 3:54 PM

    • Thanks so much, BJ! 🙂 The Helpdesk people I’ve chatted with have been friendly, but not able to solve the problem. I’ve a paid membership until spring next year, and I’ll probably keep on blogging here until then. Hopefully this issue with the Reader won’t happen too often.
      Hope you’re enjoying some beautiful autumn days!

      • Most of all, I hope I am not missing any of your wonderful posts!! ☀️

        November 20, 2018 at 5:05 PM

  7. Ah those fall colours make everything so much richer.

    November 20, 2018 at 4:40 PM

    • When autumn is like this, it’s my favorite season! 🙂 Today I’m a bit less enthusiastic though; temperatures dropped and it’s cold, dark, rainy, and very windy. Hope the sun comes back!

  8. vibrant Amsterdam fall!
    i remember locking my
    bike up near there 🙂

    November 25, 2018 at 4:21 AM

    • Anywhere in Amsterdam
      is a place near
      where you locked your bicycle 😊

      November 25, 2018 at 12:27 PM

  9. Superb colours! Love that first one with the tiled trees! Beautiful.
    Sorry to hear about the continuing problems with WP! It’s a shame they can’t get it right for you! 😦

    November 25, 2018 at 3:17 PM

    • Thanks so much John! 🙂 The trees in this street are so charming, I love the way they grow. And fingers crossed, I haven’t had any problems with WordPress the past two weeks so maybe it’s solved now!

      November 25, 2018 at 4:10 PM

  10. Wow, that’s a seriously tree lined road!!! I love roads with trees and houses. My earliest memory of a house my family lived in was on a tree lined avenue (not as grand as this!)… at that age I thought everyone lived in roads with tall trees lining the road! It’s hard to tell with this road if the trees were planted between the housed or the houses built around the trees? It’s quite awesome…. they look very strong too. Altogether an autumn bursting post! 🙂

    November 30, 2018 at 8:08 AM

    • Thanks so much Suzy! 🙂 The trees are old but they were planted after the houses were built. Most houses here are very old, for example my house was built in 1894 and the trees outside were planted some time after WW2 I think.

      December 2, 2018 at 7:26 PM

    • PS. Just listed to you read the Dangling Conversations, how very beautiful!!

      December 2, 2018 at 8:16 PM

      • Oh that’s interesting! The building I live in was built in the late 1890’s… we’re living in homes of a similar age! I just wish we had some of those trees!!

        Thanks so much for the lovely compliment on my post.. so kind of you!♥ Sorry the comments are disabled at the moment… I’ve not been well this last year… I’m feeling much improved but not back to good health yet. I just want to put what energy I have into the posts and comments on blog friends posts at the moment, until I’m back to my normal energy levels… thanks so much for your previous comments and support… it’s very much appreciated! 🙂

        December 2, 2018 at 8:45 PM

        • So sorry you’re not well, I didn’t know that! Good to hear you’re on the mend though ❤

          December 2, 2018 at 9:33 PM

  11. Nice autumnal images – I especially like the first one 🙂
