THIS POST IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN SWEDISH! Theme week 3 of my 365 photo challenge project was all about love… All because of Valentine's Day, which occurred on the Friday of this/that week. Valentine's Day is also Oh's and my anniversary, the first time we shared a pillow, so we've chosen this day to celebrate … Continue reading 365 project, theme week 3

365 project, theme week 2

THIS POST IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN SWEDISH! Because my first theme week of my 365 project was black and white, I chose the second week to be about colours, and not just colour photos, but in some way symbolise colour, or show colours of the objects in the photos. This was an incredibly hard task, … Continue reading 365 project, theme week 2

The 365 project

THIS POST IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN SWEDISH! With New Year's Eve knocking on the door way back in 2013 I decided to make some resolutions for the New Year after all. I've grown tired of solemny swearing these resolutions, you've heard it before, but somehow I managed to squeeze into my head that it was … Continue reading The 365 project

Travel apps

There are too many travelling apps for iPhone, and I've decided to try out some of them. I'll give each one 2 weeks to thrill me, and while I'm not travelling particularly much atm, I will see if it's possible to register trips retrospectively (is that a word?). I have no idea if that's even … Continue reading Travel apps

A bite of Icelandic food culture

"Ett bett av isländsk matkultur" was first published on my Swedish Blog.   Mead, mead, mead and bark, and maybe the occasional meat bone. That's probably what they eat, those vikings out on the icy island in the middle of nowhere!   To me, food is a big part of travelling, and trying the local … Continue reading A bite of Icelandic food culture

@work

THIS POST IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN SWEDISH! I've just started a new job. Well, I don't know about the "new" part… back in Stena Line and HR's JobCenter. During 2011 I worked there for 3 months and I loved it; working as an HR-administrator I staffed Stena Line's boats. I had difficulty getting used to … Continue reading @work

Photo of the Week, w4

This week I've been completely tied up at work, but I managed to get some practice within night photography. It's a bit tricky with the autofocus, though, since it's hard for the camera to find the focus point, being completely dark and all, and it's also hard for the eye (well, at least for my … Continue reading Photo of the Week, w4

Eureka!

THIS POST IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN SWEDISH! Suddenly it just happens - you find what you've been looking for all of your life. Kind of. On Christmas Eve last year in my sister's home, I was experimenting with my flash (Speedlite), which came for free with my camera Canon EOS 6D when I bought it. … Continue reading Eureka!
