One thing I undebatably love about travel photography - it requires almost minimum editing, photos are colourful enough as it is. I am currently chilling in a wonderful hotel room in one of the best regions in Turkey - Tekirova, and am overly happy to introduce a new section on the SFS blog - TRAVEL. Something I have been longing to do ever since I've started it up. I absolutely intend to travel more as of this year. Dive in to see some of the stunning sea views that I shot during our little trip feeding blue fish.

There are happy people out there, fact. Of course, everyone defines happiness in their own way - some are happy travelling, some love their job, some are happy bringing up children in a quiet countryside, some - winning cases in a court, some - writing stories, and some are just happy even if to others it seems they have nothing to be happy about. We only live once, and it is pretty essential to make it a happy one. In order to be really happy, you need to understand what things matter to you, what really makes you happy, and do all to attain those things in life. While everyone does define happiness in their own way and everyone's path to it is indeed different, here are some of my own ways...

The other day, while having breakfast, I finished reading a book that most of you have probably already heard of - "The Husband's Secret" by Lianne Moriarty. It's been a while since I last posted, and I have been looking for an excuse to get into blogging again. Having finished the book, I felt an overwhelming desire to share the thoughts and feelings I'd experienced when reading it (there couldn't be a better excuse, could there). And here's why...

I don't often go on dates, or rather - I don't go on dates. For a simple reason - I am married. And since my husband was pretty much the only man I went out with and then got married to straight away, I hadn't had much of a dating experience prior to my marriage either. Unfortunately - or rather fortunately - I managed to avoid all the dating stress somehow, and I know it is stressful for a fact.

Everyone has a friend with never ending dating drama, including me. A friend of mine, let's call her Katya, has just started going out with a new man, and the amount of drama she is going through is truly depressing. She stresses over pretty much anything - what to wear, what to say, how to sit, what perfume to choose and other quite common emotions almost everyone experiences before heading to a date. However her recent cause of stress is what to eat on first dates, or for that matter, - what not to eat. As things are, first dates almost always take place in restaurants or other places where you get food. Food connects people.

Seeing as the last post on the blog had too many words, I thought it would be quite reasonable to add a photo post just to dilute it, you know. It's not like it took me months to edit the shooting, it was actually ready weeks after. But summer was too generous on nice memories and busy days, hence less time for the blog.

I would like to introduce a new section on the blog - "OPINION", where I am planning to actually write more. It would be great if you guys could somewhat guide me on what subjects you would like to read more on the blog. We could actually "write together". Any suggestions?
