From the corner of my balcony...

Now that the days have gotten shorter, I wake up to see the sun rise almost every morning, and it's so beautiful. The only thing is, I'm tired of the same view, with the same trees, so even though my balcony have the best view you can get in my house, I'm in need of somewhere new. One day, I will get myself together and get up early so I have time to snap a couple of pictures, and not be late for school. But in the meantime, here are some pictures I took this morning:

These two pictures (above and underneath) was taken the same place, with a few seconds apart, but with different settings on the camera. I just found it kinda cool how clearly you can see that the setting the camera is on really makes a difference

Autumn update

It seems like autumn is starting... it's getting cold, the fall collections are coming to the stores, and everyone are blogging about chilly autumn days and golden leafs. But I'm so not ready for this. Autumn is not my favorite season, but I agree it's pretty, and usually I'm just happy because fall means it's almost winter, and winter means snow, christmas, candles and hot chocolate. But this year, all I can focus on is the cold, gray and sadness of the season.

My theory (warning, it might be a little weird and might not make sense to you) is that last year it was such a long and cold winter (I was in northern Canada, and we had snow for at least 5 months!) that I just got enought of it, and now I can't seem to grasp that winter is already coming again.

This post isn't the most positive, but so much has been on my mind lately, and beside my own confusion, stress and what not, I'm trying to deal with some of my friends' relationship-problems and I'm trying not to make it affect me too much...

Hopefully tomorrow will be a brighter day!

Pretty morning sun

The last couple of mornings I have gotten up just in time to see the sun rise, and it's been so beautiful! So with my new camera in my hand, and still just in my pj I've been standing on my balcony taking pictures. The same tree kinda pops up in most of these pictures, but when I'm standing on the balcony I just can't seem to get the sun in the picture without the tree. 

I had a few more pictures, but they needed editing, and since my computer wouldn't cooperate with me today, I'll save that for later.

New camera!

I finally got my new camera! Unfortunately I don't have that many pictures yet, because my battery died, but I can't wait to really test it out sometime soon. I did have time to go outside (in the dark) and snap a few photos.

This picture was taken with a makro-lens that I borrowed from my dad

During my family's summer-holiday this year we went to Florida for 10 days. My dad's colleague Tammi has a beach house there so we stayed with her, her husband and her daughter, Rachel. It was a closed community with many big mansions, so it was really different compared to the places my family and I usually stay on holidays, since we uually go backpacking.
We had extremely nice and warm weather, but every afternoon we had around 30 min of heavy rain and sometimes thunder (see the picture above, which was taken just before the rain started).

My dad took this picture of me that I don't really like, but the light just looks amazing

Forgotten things

When I came home from Canada I had A LOT to unpack - not only my suitcases but more or less my entire room which was packed in cardboard-boxes. And of course, while trying to put it all in order, I snapped a few photos, of pretty things and things I had forgotten about.
The picture above is some of my mom's old sewing patterns that somehow ended up in my room?

A retro clock and some old books

A vintage photo I found deep down in a random box

My painting stuff is finally (somewhat) in order

This is an old, nonfunctioning camera my dad was about to throw out once, but I saved it... Now I just need to figure out where to put it...
