Something that brings me joy

Something I missed loads while being at the hospital for nearly two weeks. Family and friends were able to visit, but this.. no. There wasn’t any of this beautiful nature.

I don’t know what it is exactly, but it just fills me with hope and joy when I see stuff like this. I can feel the sun kiss my skin, I can feel the touch of the flowers and fresh leaves on my fingers and I can smell the fresh air.

Favourite place (One of..)

Don’t think this needs all that much of an explanation.

It’s one of my favourite places.
It’s beautiful.
It’s calm.
It’s peaceful.
It’s special.
It’s free.

My mind can wander when I’m there. Or it can settle down. There’s no judgement – no expectations.

It’s far away. I only go there around once a year, but I love that time. Always in the fall so the leaves are colourful and the sun shines so beautifully.

My kind of art

It’s (still) that time of the year, the leafs have fallen off the trees and bushes. They’re brown and boring, and not all that great to look at.
Thankfully it’s almost time for the green bits to peek out into the world again – and I can’t express how happy I am about that.
But, since the leafs are boring, I decided to try and see if I could do something interesting – or pretty.. and I think I did.

On one of my walks, I picked this up and photographed it several times. And the amazing part was that it was nearly see-through. The tiny holes adding to the ability to see right through it. I don’t know what exactly did it, but I sort of fell in love with it right there, and it became one of those little things that made my day fee good.

When I need to calm down

I got a few colouring books for my birthday a week ago, and since then I’ve been putting them to good use. They’re different from my other ones and I really enjoy being able to switch between them. Patterns or motives, depending on what I’m in the mood for.  (more…)

Favorite macros

These are some of my favourite photos that I’ve ever taken. It’s been a while since I took them, but they’re still the ones I prefer. Partly cause of the photos themselves. Partly cause of the memories of the day taking them.

I love the light flower petals, especially in the bottom photo where you can actually see the texture of the petal and to me it just looks so soft my eyes can practically feel it. I also love the colours. The white mixed with the green and the small yellow addition in the middle.

Flower shoot

Wanted to share some photos I took a while ago. Sadly I am still using the settings already put in the camera, macro and auto – but I love the pictures I got out of it.

Flowers are one of my favourite things to photograph. There’s so many nuances and small things to focus on. Things you don’t usually see when seeing them in a vase or outside and you walk by.

Let me know what you think, please. And maybe link me a few places to get inspiration, or to see the difference between the manual settings and the auto ones?

My new hobby

Recently I started colouring again. I say again, since I, just as so many other girls, did this very much when I was little. But here I am. 26 years old and wishing for colouring books and colour pencils for my birthday.

My birthday was this weekend – and I guess I wished for them enough, cause my brother and sister came me two colouring books and a pack of nice pencils.

I always felt that I would be the sort of person who would enjoy to doodle and draw – on of those people who would do it all the time, bring books and pens wherever they went and always return with a stack of creative and beautiful pictures. But that never happened. I’m not skilled enough, and not creative enough. But I believe I’ve now found my niche! I love colouring. It relaxes me and keeps my mind calm, and lets me destress and allows my thoughts to settle down.

Honestly I haven’t done it too much yet, but so far I am really enjoying it, and can definitely see myself doing this much more in times to come.
