About Me

I’m a proud mother…

She’s my biggest fan and vice versa.  She’s in college now and lives in Scotland.

My daughter once told me, “You’re too old to blog”. Whew, that hurts!   My age is not the main problem upon having a blog: but the theme, the composition, the usage of correct grammars, and the insufficient vocabularies.  Yeah, I know, it’s very difficult for me to write a good post.  But hey, I’m not so pessimistic about it.  I’m going to entertain you here with more photos than writings, that’s my plan.

I’m married to a man who doesn’t want to be photographed.  So here we go…

He loves this kind of collar.

And let me introduce you the cutest member of our family,  my lovely model…

Her name’s Mimi and she loves carrying her toy around.

I have a passion for analogue and digital photography. I love black and white photography especially when it’s in square form.  The reason why I love IG at the moment.  I have no specific style when taking photographs, more or less, I call myself a snap shooter and just backing up my memories.  And I’ve noticed that I’m executing this passion/I’m making all those images when I’m bored. Hence, the blog name!

This blog is all about the snapshots of my humble lifestyle and all the simple things that make me smile.  All the published images on here were taken by me, unless, otherwise stated.

My favorite quote is from Lewis Hines; “If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.”  I have the feeling that this saying was especially made for me.  I’m not a good verbal communicator, that’s the fact and I’m okay with that!  😉

Thank you so much for passing by and I’m looking forward to seeing/reading your unique blogs, as well!

Keep Shining… Smile!

  1. Hi Jane… Lots of thanks for dropping by my site. And it’s great to meet you here. I’m looking forward to see more of what you will be sharing. Cheers!

  2. Hi, It is great, that you found my blog, and now I found do like yours. You do speak also german, as far as I see? Is it anywhere written where you live, I mean, in what country? If you can tell?
    Your, Giorgio

      1. In Berlin. Das ist aber spannend, denn die meisten der vielen schönen Bilder von Ihnen scheinen nicht in Deutschland zu sein. Ich dachte immer, Sie wären Amerikanerin?
        I live in Berlin. That´s interesting what you tell me, where you live. You have so many nice and beautiful photos I thought they were from the USA and I thought you were American?

      2. Oh, nein ich bin keine Amerkanerin… ich komme aus Asien (Philippinen). Ich blogge einfach in Englisch weil ich mache dann nicht zu viele Grammatikfehler! Sie können aber weiterhin mit mir in Deutsch schreiben… 😍

  3. Interessant und tief (deep) an Ihren Bildern finde ich, dass Sie einen internationalen Flair ausstrahlen, den ich als amerikanisch assoziiert habe, wahrscheinlich aber, weil Sie Englisch schreiben und ich in den Tagen meinen ersten viewer aus den USA hatte. Der Name “passionatelybored” bringt mich immer wieder zum nachdenken, da er ja ein Widerspruch in sich selbst ist, wenn ich das ins Deutsche übersetze: “mit einer ans schmerzhafte grenzenden Zuwendung (sprich: “leidenschaftlich”) genervt / gelangweilt.” Da kann man immer wieder drüber nachdenken, was das meint, bei jedem Ihrer Bilder. Da im Blogtitel aber “smiles” vorkommt, kann “passionatlyboared” aber wohl gar nicht so negativ gemeint sein…. Herzlich Giorgio aus Berlin

    1. Thank you so much for the time spent thinking about my blog name. It’s an oxymoron and I’ve chosen passionatelybored because I’m oftentimes bored and when that happens I always find myself taking picture of simple things that make me smile.
      Wish you a lovely day!

    1. Oh hello dear Ompong,
      I’ve just noticed this notification… sorry talaga ha but I’m not participating on this! Nakakahiya but one of the reasons is I’m very tamad! 😱
      Maraming salamat for the nomination, though, happy si ako! 😍
      Regards sa pamilya lalo na kay Misis ni Ompong

  4. Dear Jane,
    I like your blog very much and it is most important to me, that you found me as a quite new one to blog. I do not know, if you ever heard of the “Liebster Award”, a way to get bloggers to know each others blogs and get into a conversation. I nominated you for this award. I would be very happy, if you answered the question and brought this conversation onwards, by following the rules that come with the Libester award. Please, visit my site with the topic “Liebster Award”:

    Your have my answers in German there, but if you scroll down to the english part, you find the rules and the questions I would like to ask you. You answer them on YOUR SITe please! I would be VERY happy if you found the time!!
    Yours Giorgio.

    1. Dear Giorgione,

      I’m glad you like my blog very much. Though I’m not taking part of this kind of award I am always pleased to read this sort of notifications. It made me smile!

      Please don’t be upset/disappointed and please don’t think I’m rude or a snob… it’s just my personal choice!

      I’m already browsing some of the blogs you linked on your latest post and will continue reading the other blogs when I have enough time.

      As for now, I wish you a very lovely time with your family and friends. And enjoy the very nice weather we have at the moment.

      THANK YOU so much for the nomination and for mentioning my blog on your recent article.

  5. To be true, I AM a snob myself. I am not the least disappointed, because, I think the Liebster Award has two great disadvantages: It is not really an Award! And, what does it mean “liebster”, this is a German word, and it would mean, that you could nominate only one Blog, that you liked most. No, as I wrote on my answers, it was important to me to define myself as a blogger, this is why I took part in the liebster award. Otherwise, I am just, very, very happy to know you, and if you ever come to Berlin, PLEASE visit me and my wife on my (our) balcony!!! Yours, Giorgio.
