From the top: a drum hanging on the christmas tree (a typical danish tradition), one of the few pictures of my mom without her eyes being closed :), the christmas dinner table nicely decoreted with lots of colors and last but definitly not least - our christmas tree filled with random ornaments and candles.
These last two pictures is of my youngest brother and my dad, both looking at the books they got :)
Sometimes a bit of fresh air, is all you need to clear your mind and cheer up. The day these pictures were taken, I had been in a crappy mood, when my dad suggested me to go out and take some pictures. So I went down to our local "park", and I did not regret it! It was a beautiful autumn day! Even though it was chilly and the wind was rather cold, the sun was shining and it kinda felt like the last day of summer.
The cutest little boy came and stood next to me while I was photographing, and he reminded me so much of the boy I used to babysit when he was feeding the swans with bread, and laughing like crazy when they came close to him. A fearless little fellow :)
It almost looks like these swans are forming a heart, but in reality they were actually fighting for the bread... funny how pictures can sometimes be decieving.
This is just going to be a short post, with a few pictures. I just had a couple of pictures of some pretty cool street art and graffiti from around Toronto...
These pianos were placed all over Toronto, and they all had some sort of sign that said "Play me, I'm yours". The coolest part was, that they were all painted completely different by different artists. This one was my favorite of the ones i saw, because it's so colorful.
These guys were from a tv-station, and they were making a story about these pianos... and since no one who could actually play was around, I got filmed while playing (even though I can only lay a small and simple melody).
Today I have slept in, it took me half an hour to eat breakfast, I took a loooong shower, did my makeup, snapped some photos of myself and a dress that I sewed and... there's still like 3 hours 'till I have to be at school!!?!
The joy of starting school at 2 p.m. (which happens like once a year). I've really enjoyed my day home alone so far, sometimes it's just all you need to not stress out completely and just catch up with homework and all that.
I'm practicing on the whole taking-pictures-of-myself thing, and I'm slowly getting better at it, so here's some of today's best ones:
Ok, I guess not... my computer and I aren't always good friends, and I couldn't upload them, but here they are on facebook.
I'm gonna try something new here on the blog, and post one of my poems. As many of you probably know, I love writing. Most of the times I write short stories, but once in a while I write poems. I'd love to know what you think, and wether you wanna see more of this, or just pics etc.
The background picture is not mine, took it from here
Songs and smells
Speaking of summers
Slowly sailing by
Shimmering in the sun
Foggy autumn forests
Full of fairytales
Fighting the flames
Of fierce farmers
Long lonely days
Laced with last breaths
A life full of love
"In times like this I write.
I write when confusion, anger happiness and emotions starts taking over my brain.
I write when I don't know how to deal with what life brings me.
I write poems because it's a way to put emotions wich are hard to describe down on a piece of paper.
Noone is a better listener than a blank page in a notebook, and nothing brings you closer to knowing yourself than grabbing a pen and starting to fill up the blank page."
The poem is from April 2012, and the text above is from September 2012
Yeah ok, it's a couple of weeks ago BUT, better late than never right?
What I'm talking about is my trip to Helsinki in fall break. I went there to visit my finnish "sister"/canadian roommate (Lived with her in Canada).
It was an absolutely awesome trip, and I couldn't have wished for a better way to spent my holiday :)
Instead of blabbering on about how fantastic it all was (ok, maybe not the weather, but everything else) I'll just show some pics :)
We were atthe finnish national library, and found some really old books. This one was a danish lexicon, and I found the town where I live... back when it was a farm and fields :)
This was a little very modern and minimalistic chapel, placed right next to a shopping center
We spent HOURS in this awesome thrift store - and found many good stuff
In "Kiasm" the finnish museum for contemporary art
We went to Talinn (Estonia) one day - it was an absolutely beautiful city, with so many old buildings. These following pictures are from a little cozy café with a kinda midieval feel to it.
After several days of raind and gray weather in Helsinki, it was nice to get a bit of sun!
Enjoying our delicious (and surprisingly cheap) dinner at one of Talinns best recommended resteaurants
Lately I've been super busy with homework and assignments, so I haven't really had a chance to post anything.... and then now when I wanted to post some pictures from my lovely trip to Helsinki, I don't have my memory card with me, so that will have to wait.
In the meantime, I will share with you a couple of pictures I have seen random places on the internet, which has inspired or fascinated me.
As you can see this picture was actually found on 9gag... I was quite amazed to see something this serious on a page like that. The picture is beautifully made I find, and it "says more than a thousand words"
I find this kinda scary, but yet somehow fascinating
Beautiful street art that makes ordinary objects look amazing
