So guys which mountain top should we hike to next weekend? Well, there’s one about to crumble and fall down. Let’s go there!
«Mannen» is a mountain in Rauma municipality not far from where I live. A couple of years ago the small village beneath it was evacuated because there’s a huge piece of it threatening every now and then to detach from the rest of the mountain and smother everything on its path. We thought it would be cool to se the thing before that happened, so we went ahead and did. A glorious hike in both sun, heat, blistering cold, a freakin hurricane and a whole lot of rain to! (And the mountain still stands..) ((for now)). The village was again evacuated just a few weeks after our hike, and just couple of days later they were given the all clear to move back…. HELL NO imma stay right here.
My family is no joke when it comes to celebrating birthdays. My little sister Sara turned 24 while while she was away on vacation. I took it upon myself to make sure that the event did not go unnoticed when she got back home to Norway and dads insanely blooming garden. And no – we are NEVER too old for colorful balloons.
In August my right index finger was worn out from all the times it hit the shutter in July. I shot four rolls of film that month, which is my excuse for only having these six exposures from this month. Anyway, we were back home from our lovely vacation, and I finally spent some time in the glorious late summer mountains. This was the month I realized I really l o v e wandering in the woods looking for mushrooms. So I did. A lot. We also ended the salmon fishing season with a freezer full of goodies, celebrated my nephews birthday and I also girl bossed on with my little and beloved business.
Pic number four – funny story. On our way to the botanical garden, our taxi passed a cemetery where the church and all the tomb stones were made in marble. Every grave was decorated so delicately with flowers, it was all marble, purple, blue and green. It looked so lovely and serene. On our way back I asked the taxi driver to stop at the cemetery so that I could get a quick pic, obviously not being specific enough when trying to explain what a c e m e t e r y actually was.
«You know, where people are buried after they die. Eternal sleep. Laying in the ground. No?»
«Ok, yes, I understand», he said, and then he took me to this place on picture number four. On the inside I was screaming NO WHAT THE PHUCK, but as the calm collected and well mannered gal that I am I politely got out of the taxi with leather seats (WHY would anyone have leather seats when its like one trillion degrees outside) and got a sweaty shot of whatever that thing is.
So I don’t feel quite so guilty anymore about having only a few pictures to share from the month of June when the pics I took in July alone qualifies for all of FIVE blog posts, haha! So I got a little carried away with the analogue love this month, shoot me (GET IT?!). Fun fact; I still haven’t unpacked my suitcase, whopsie.
As I mentioned, July wasn’t just all week work work, but also time for traveling and some much needed fun in the sun and quality time spent with my daddy-cool. We kind of spontaneously booked a trip together to bouganvillea-filled Greece, and had a lovely and relaxing week.
Jeg ELSKER syttende mai! Det vet dere nok by now. I år var første gang jeg har hatt fri hele dagen på så lenge jeg kan huske. Det er minst syv år siden sist, og for å feire litt ekstra fikk Nikonbaby bli med på morroa. LORDILORD! Stemningen var fantastisk og været aldeles ny-de-lig den dagen med knallblå himmel og etterlengtet sol, og sistnevnte førte dessverre til at jeg bommet litt med kamerainstillingene og noen av bildene ble litt overeksponerte og ute av fokus. Men what the hey – jeg lærte en greie, og det er jo hele poenget med mitt kjære lille prosjekt ♥
Disse to månedene er litt forvirrede og blurry. I vert fall på filmrullen. Noen av bildene fra Romaturen i mars havnet på filmen som bare liksom sklei stilt og fredelig over kalendergrensen og blei plutselig forvandlet til april over natten. Derfor tar jeg en spansk en og smekker sammen siste rest fra mars sammen med april, og lager et stooort bildedryss. I dag fikk jeg nemlig tilbake filruller fra mars til i dag, og jeg dør – DØR – etter å dele de fortest mulig. Enjoy!
My soul is so happy right now. I`ve just finished my work week and tonight I`m headed abroad for a holiday with my family. I LOVE travelling to new destinations, and this time I`ll be leaving footsteps in Gdansk, Poland. I am travelling super light due to insane luggage fees and have therefore decided to only bring my Nikon along, which means lots and lots of analoque love. But first – march through my SLR.
So, It´s time for some more analogue love! Im pushing a lot of Kodak moments (litterally!) on my blog these days, simply just to get a jour with my project. Which I love to bits, btw.
This particular roll of film was shot when hubby and I travelled to Rome march of this year. Yes, a whole roll of film over the duration of five days but what the heck – Italy deserves a roll of its own. Looking back at all the photos I took from this trip, these actually are some of my favorites. There´s just something special about shooting analogue that makes me put so much more effort into every shot. Perhaps it´s the not being able to view the photo directly after shooting, and the wonderful anticipation of what I actually managed to capture that makes it so unique. Also, it costs a crap load of money to buy the film and to have it digitalized and developed, so that helps to.
