Weekend in Amsterdam!

This past year has been all about getting me and my creativity back on track. Even though I’m not all the way there, a weekend in Amsterdam really brought back some of it. I always forget how much I love just looking at people and capturing a random moment in time. I should really go for strolls more often, and Hey! Having a sister to do the long talks during the long walks, sure helps alot. And photocred to her for actually capturing me in a picture haha <3

This post is not a lot, but its something! And a little bit of something always a good thing right? :)

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Work of art? Art for work?

A while back I asked my workmates if I could take some pictures of them and make “little-big-people”art. After quite a few hours or should I say a couple of days behind the computer, alot of figuring out the things that to me represented each individual and a little magic here and there. I finally finished the posters. And I’m quite satisfied with the outcome!

Hope you like it!

The vow renewal!

A while back I had the opportunity to witness my first wedding vow renewal. It’s hard to try to explain in words, the warm fuzzy feeling you get when you see a couple that’s been together for 60 years still look at each other like it’s love at first sight.

Add in some family, love, reminiscing about the past and looking forward to the days coming,  and you have yourself the most “on point” life recipe you can find!

I’d like you to wish you the best of luck in the future and say thank you for letting me be a part of this amazing moment!

 

Hope you all enjoy the pictures!

When in doubt, vacation!

Why not spend the first week of your vacation in Greece? That’s what I did!

Long days on the beach, boat rides, evening dining and a big ass fishbowl! That’s how I’m going to sum up the vacation with the girls.

And Hey! Can anyone please FedEx me the oven-baked feta cheese with honey please? I miss it so much!

 

I don’t think I have anything else to add, Imma let the pictures do the talking!

The Golden Hour

My computer is old and he is dying, I think I pushed him a little to much this time. I’m gonna try to revive him, and try to finish this post via my phone. This post is just going to be totally random one.  Grabbed some random pictures that was on my camera from a trip to MAX with some friends last week.

I pulled over to the side on the old road to take some pictures by the lake, and told my brother to take pictures of the road and telling him how to hold the camera while I was the one keeping my eyes on the road and doing the driving. He didn’t do that bad of a job, now did he! ;D

I hope I won’t miss next weeks post, but i can’t promise anything. I might have a new computer on its way. One never knows.

 

Have a great sunday!

November Voodoo

I finally get to show you the best part of when great minds think alike!  Me and Nasime have for a reallllyyy long time been talking about having a “Modern Voodoo Photoshoot”. Both of us being on a low budget, we finally pulled it off, low budget and everything!

Saving old cans, jars, wood and loads of other stuff. Used tinfoil taped on styrofoam as reflectors, and with a little good and random help from Sarah, some serious magic in photoshop. I’m proud to present “The November Voodoo Shoot”.

I think I spent a good 25-30 hours in photoshop all together Geeeeeezzz, BUT I loved every single minute of it! (But more on that in next weeks post, if you wanna know a little bit more on the behind the scenes, make sure to peek in next week, I’ll do a before and after.)

How about a little like or a share on this one!

Enjoy!

Road Trip to Denmark

Last week I got the opportunity to join a group of really amazing friends on a little road trip to Denmark, and who can say no to that (not me obviously!).

To sum the week up its been all about “Ohana“, swimming in the sea, sightseeing, playing board games and eating! And when I say eating I mean eating, fish everyday ftw!

Also met an angry ice cream man, 4 naked old men at the beach, walked halfblind trough limestone mines and been wardrobe to death itself (but thats a totally different story).

Anyway, long story short, here’s some pictures of the adventure!

Enjoy!

Been working on repetitive patterns in photoshop this week, Added som fabric textures and grain to make it a little more interesting. I had an idea of printing stuff I like on fabric, watched some clips on youtube, Not really sure if i would want to walk around with these prints and patterns, but I had a fun time working with this post.

 

Hope you like it!

Alicante part. 1

Hola chicas y chicos!  Sooo I went on this last minute trip to Alicante last week with Len. Came back with pretty brownish legs, a burnt forehead, full stomach and a brain full of memories. The food, the people, the still siesta buzz in the air, do I need to say more.

So here you go, get ready for a little mix of late aftenoon/night in Alicante – part 1.
