My next post for the Alphabet Hunt challenge by @barbara-orenya. This time we had to find words starting with letter "O". Pretty easy task, there exist a thousand of good things started from this letter, but I came unprepared and didnt have time to choose what I want to share, and shape a proper post in time. So, I am sending my stuff off the contest, just for the love of the game. Most of decisions were the last-minute, I just looked around and noticed what I can pick up!
O — Olga / Olya
Olya, Olga is a beautiful ancient Russian name of Byzantium origin. My family has a lot of great friends having this name, our Godmother's name is Olga, too! (Oh, and by the way she took part in many Alphabet Hunt rounds in different nominations, as well!). So, its always a pleasure to find some greetings and appreciation for this name. This graffiti I found at the streets of St.Petersburg.
O — Onyx
For this one, I got a hint from @melinda010100 (thanks, Mel! as you see, I used it) -- I took some pictures of my ebook reader. The brand name is Onyx Book, the model name is *Darwin. The Darwin-4 model we happily lived with, for the last 4 years, but all good things inevitably come to the end. We exhausted its charging part, and the screen (the main part of this gadget) became 1/2 unfunctional, so its no use to do any fixing, just no go. For my baby's forthcoming birthday I obtained the newest model, Onyx Darwin 7 -- same beautiful leather case but a new processor and more velocity.
This is not an ad, but if you're considering getting an ebook reader, this is a very good one; ideal proportions, cool design and very reasonable price (about 150$).
O — Oil
Olive oil, fish oil, sunflower oil, linseed oil. Aroma oil... we have a lot of oils in our hOusehold -- was not hard to make a few pics of this stuff!
The fish oil is left from the times our little baby was growing, we used to add it to her diet, but she wasnt too happy with it, hehe
And the linseed oil (besides it is very healthy stuff, when its fresh!) is a delicasy flavoring for our bakery. If you are not in the know, do check! Sometimes it is being referred to as a 'Russian oil', but I believe it is well-known on a wide scale, not exclusively in Russian cuisine!
O — Omelet
O — Oak
Theres an Old Oak at the edge of our place, and every year he sends out missionaries around the area whose job is to spread life... But since its our garden all around, I have to dig up these little 1-2 y.o. oak sprouts and look for a new suitable place for them Outside of our site. I was going to create a post about that for #AmazingNature, but did not have time ... but I prepared the photos - and they did not go to waste!
O — Owl
We have collected a decent collection of Owls thru years, maybe I will show it to you one day. Here are just a few copies for you.
All the images taken by me, as always. I considered this round other words that came to my mind, which finally lost their position to more successful rivals:
ornate / orchard / orchidea / oriental / office
Those are all good things... but nobody can fit an unfittable, right?
Как говорил мой старый наставник-редактор: "Нельзя впихнуть невпихуемое!
Here is an index to my previous posts for this great challenge.
Hope you enjoyed travelling with me. Come back next week, and join the fun!
