THE CORN THIEF





 







Let's try something new ! This time I won't start by apologizing for how long it's been and promise betterment -too many posts began that way by now and I feel very silly catching myself writing the same stuff over and over again.  The only thing I will repeat is my gratitude for your comments and mails, they meant a lot to me...that also sounds old after a while, I know, but it's true.

This blog is so beloved to me that I will never be able to really move away from it. It helped me in many ways to experiment with my creative interests and I probably would have never taken a serious step towards photography without it. Every time I have been gone I really miss my posting on here, there is something very healthy about having a constant outlet for any kind of ideas and inspirations. It even makes me a bit angry that I don't use it as often as I did in the past.

 A few weeks ago I went on a little trip to the country. I suddenly had a lot of time for myself (and Asim) so I went on many excursion through the forests and fields, talked to goats and stole some corn (just kidding -don't take the title to this post too seriously) and somehow this little story happened.

You may have already noticed that not only my blog has a new appearance, but that there is also a new addition to my posts. I thought it would be a nice idea to put a little mix together whenever I do a new story. It will be a soundtrack not only to the post, but also to what I was listening to in the time the pictures were taken. A mix of the music I loved and what was playing around me, by the people I was with or the places I stayed at -do you like that idea?

Thank you for still being here and I would also like to send a very warm hello to anyone that happened to find this blog in my absence!

Oh, and please excuse if my english got bit rusty!

LIKE TALKING TO A FRIEND

It has been seven weeks since my last entry on this blog. I think even for an unreliable and infrequent blogger like me, that was a long absence. Then again, everything seems so different now that seven weeks sound way too short. To begin with something funny, I look very different, I haven't found the interest in curling my hair lately and I wear glasses on a day to day basis now as I am too lazy for contact lenses. Asim has become very unruly, the puberty rebellions of such a huge dog can be a bit straining from time to time. All at once everyday struggles have become much more complicated, the move, a new work, somehow all that was much more challenging this time. And right now my family is saying a very long and painful final good bye to my Aunt . It's not an unexpected good bye, we all knew that she would leave us much too soon for her time, but you can never truly be prepared for something like that, I guess.

So far this year has made me lose my lightness, something that always was a big part of the pictures I made for this blog. I have shot six films since I last been on here, but I don't like them. I never even thought like that about my photos before, I just took them out of the moment, out of the mood I was in and that was all. It was all a learning experience, to see the outcome and post it on here. Now I just don't like what I see, or feel like it looks like stuff I have done a million times before in the past, just better. I have missed blogging very much, much more than I would have thought. Still I suddenly feel a bit unfamiliar with this place...I don't even know what I'm writing about here, I'm not good with words.

I received many thoughtful mails from you  and it is a lovely but unexpected surprise that quite a few new people decided to join this blog as a reader without me even updating once.  I just thought I check in today and tell you where I am at the moment.
