Hi there! Saturday again. Time flies so fast these days. Maybe it’s just me growing old, but I can’t really understand how quickly spring just disappeared this year?
I have a complicated relationship with time, or more precisely, a constant fear of waking up in 10 or 15 years only to find out I’ve spent my days on building someone else’s dreams instead of my own. (Yes, I’m born in 1986 in case you wondered what generation I belong to, lol).
Thus, even though time flew by rapidly this spring, I’ve tried to make it a priority to make my creativity a priority! I’ve tried to combine the best of several worlds: travelling, spending time with family, working out – all while keeping Evert (my Canon EOS1300D) in a steady grip.
It’s Saturday, but today that means work for me. I’ve got a some catching up to do on ongoing project management, as well as a copywriting deadline coming up. However, before I jump into that, I just wanted to share couple of quick camera moments I’ve captured recently.
My boyfriend and I went on a short road trip to Jönköping to get a little change of scenery. The weather was ideal for photography: cloudy, lovely and dramatic.
An anonymous man made my day. Whoever you are: Thanks for crashing and completing this picture!
I went to Finland in order to celebrate my sister’s birthday. We were just there for a few days, but we managed to squeeze in several long walks in the forests. Fresh air, sunlight +movement =win win!
There was so many beautiful piles of wood that just popped up here and there when we were out walking. (No. Please don’t ask me what I’m going to do with 3,000 images of woodpiles and trees, but at least they are saved for future generations to look at now).
The weather was on its best behavior during my travel to Finland. I’m no ferry fan whatsoever, but I have to say that taking the day trip with Viking Line this time was a very unexpected and paradox combination of relaxation and extreme productivity. I love that nowadays, there’s a work lounge/conference area where you can go and actually get stuff done and avoid drunk people. When you’re on a regular trip, drinking and partying is obviously not on the agenda – working is. I’ve complained a lot during the years to Viking Line and suggested they would create something like this, so kudos Viking Line for listening to your customers and improving your services!
May provided Stockholm with lots of heat. One of the evenings however included a magical, soft spring rain! I had to capture what was left of those refreshing water drops on our light bulbs on our balcony.
I’m currently in Strängnäs. Perhaps one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I know. Yesterday’s sunset got caught on camera and I played around with it a little bit, just to increase the more scenic elements of the composition. I really like working with dramatic and cineatic effects and the cloudy skies here certainly provided me with all the raw material needed.
Hope you liked this little photo bomb! Going forward, I’ll try to include more of my photography in this blog as well.
Now, go have a great weekend, talk to you soon again!
