Photos: LifeOfAChickpea

I’m just playing around a bit tonight. The music is playing calmly, my room is looking clean and I’m sitting under a blanket on the sofa and editing some photos in ways I haven’t before and I just thought I would show you part of what I’m doing.

This is one way I enjoy spending my time – and maybe next time I forget I will be able to find this again and remember.

This weeks photo challenge was “A Good Match“. For me it was the contrast of the colours. And even the part of the giraffe. Top and bottom. Black and white.



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 thoseĀ little things that made my day fee good.

Beauty in the details

I fall in love when I see these pictures, and I feel so proud knowing they are mine. The flowers are from my parents’ 25th anniversary, so more than being extremely pretty, they provide great memories.

I hope I will forever keep seeing beauty in the little things. I wanna capture it and show everyone how beauty can be more than what we see at first glance. Beauty in details, in texture and shapes. In colours and shades, and in smell and taste.
