New month, new project.

Actually, it should be “New year, new project.” As I came up for the idea for this blog project in the end of last year and thought then – hey, that’s the perfect start into my new blog year. Well… you know how it goes, time passes by, there’s so much to do after Christmas and NYE and suddenly it’s February and you realize you haven’t started the project. But now is as good as always, isn’t it? 🙂

So, new project. It’s about photography.  I do have quite a lot of photo albums (like, real ones with paper and so) with a lot my pictures printed and sorted and put in the albums in a couple of looong, long photo-sorting-days. And I try to keep the albums up to date and to continuously add more pictures. But most of my (and probably yours, too) pictures are sleeping on the hard drive, which I think is a pity. And that was how the idea for the project came to my mind – a photo post with pictures, once a week. And as it’s mostly pictures from longer ago that I’m not looking at that often, it will be photo posts from the past. Holiday travels, nature trips, city snapshots, daily-life pictures. I hope you enjoy them, I hope they inspire you to take photos yourself, to travel, to go through the world with open eyes, to enjoy life 🙂

When I tried to come up with a title for the blog posts I dropped almost every idea the same minute I came up with it. “Photo Blast from the Past” – Heidi Klum is using it on her Twitter. Eeeh. “Weekly Photo Post” – can it get more boring? “Journey through my Photo Past” – can it get more cheesy? Then I stumbled over this picture when I chose the ones for the first post:

A bunch of frozen lavender hair, please!

Winter is treating me well right now – it’s getting colder every day which also means that those three centimeters of snow are still out there and seem to stay for a couple of more days, yay!

I think winter is one of the most perfect times of the year to relive some childhood memories … going sledging, making snowball fights, hiding in igloos and of course building snowmen! As my little brother is unfortunately living too far away for reliving those memories with me, I dragged Joonas out into the cold and made him build a snowman with me – thanks 🙂 Continue reading

Snowflakes keep falling on my head…

After a rainy week in Sweden before Christmas and a 15-degrees-Christmas with even more rain in Austria I was really disappointed by this winter. Back in Sweden since NYE, it has been rainy and grey for almost two weeks (except for one or two days when the sun peaked through the clouds) and my disappointment changed to anger and was close to become desperation. Until yesterday. That was when the sun made her appearance after a long absence. Continue reading
