Another caffe-latte-day

Caffe latte day

Are you happy today? I feel quite good. Soon I will go for lunch at my favourite café and have a caffe latte with whipped cream (lchf) and sort out ideas to new images that I have in my Moleskin. I expect a feel-good-mode to appear then.

This week we changed our newspaper subscription to a "Friday to Sunday"-subscription. We do not have time to read it properly on weekdays and a bonus is that we have more than halved the amount of journals to be carried away to recycling. And yesterday came the news with the real picture of it: IPad. I love the smart design. And stylish. The only question is when you can buy your giant-iPhone for home use.
Maybe we have to buy two "Can you pass me the Culture-pages, please??".

The fossil house

Gamla huset

When I was a child we often went to this beach with both pebbles and sand. Once I found a white fossil there large as my fist (then, not now). I know it is in a box in bag from the 80's at my parents attic. But which bag?

This little house is used by the fishermen and looking peacefully lonely I think.

Where? Here and on Etsy here.

Wake up and smell the breakfast

Wake Up And Smell the Coffee

My version of Keep Calm. Stay calm at breakfast. An idea that has been joining me for a while: I could just not choose what food or drink to smell. Therefor I chose them all! Except for chai tea. Would be a bit too much with coffee.

On Etsy: here and with a sunrise here.

Facades

Skyscraper-in-the-forest

I have had an idea for quite a while now about facades from different architectural styles combined to one building. I am waiting for that partly cloudy lunch hour with perfect light, when I take my camera and for the facades-walk in Malmö city for shooting images to the image toolbox. Meanwhile I made this image of whatever buildings in my iPhoto.

Exhibition: Märtas Café

Märtascafe

During February but starting today I will display ten artworks at Märtas Café in my little town. It is a cozy café with delightful salads and great muffins. In summer the backyard is a great place to relax in the shade and watching people.

Which ten images? These:
BlomsterfyrSvart-Muffins-ABCGamla huset

YesMetalltistelSolen i skogen
BirdkissHus i RomGula Huset

Want you. Need you. Love You The first one.

Ideas

Balloon

Ideas appear when I least expect them. Probably that is the idea with ideas.

Last week I was on my way to my once-a-month-photo-club-meeting. I am the youngest (i.e. 35). Most of them have passed retirement-age, but uses USB:s! I have found out that in this case age is not essential at all. We show and discuss out photos, have coffee and sometimes arrange competitions with other local clubs in the south of Sweden.

Last week someone had the good sense of changing the locks and forgetting to gives us the new key. Postponed meeting. On my way home this image-idea above just popped up. Something good came out of the non-meeting.

Ever summer?

Skånsk-sommar

Today is one of the days when I wonder how it ever will be possible for summer to come. Or even spring.  It is grey, grey and grey and rain. This picture tells me at least that there was a summer!

It is lovely to take the camera, go somewhere. Alone. And feeling that inspiration-mode is on. That is the best nutrition for fantasy and my later work with the images. I love it! And I do that instead of watching TV at night; my favorite programme i Photoshop.

Place? Somewhere here.

"Plug-ons"

Snöträd

"Where are my carkeys?" Cmd + F
"I'm sorry I said that." Cmd + Z
"Nice skirt." Cmd + X

One morning it looked like someone put a black-and-white adjusment layer in my eyes. Can you feel the air and hear the sound of walking in the snow?
Lovely morning.

Place? Outside the town of Skara.

On Etsy: here.

The yellow house

Gula Huset

I prefer passengers seat. Then I can watch everything passing by. Houses. Trees. Patterns. Colors. People. Inspiration.

On my way to work - driver's seat though - in principle I always get a red ligth at the junction by the yellow-brick-house, which is good: since it is my put-on-some-light-pink-lipstick-stop.

Recently they changed the windows and changed the sashes to a strong yellow color. Looking a bit odd, but something that stands out from the other mainstream houses.

One morning an old couch and a shelf was standing outside, waiting for the moving van. The house was like inside-out. And probably also the life of an old lady, moving to a elderlyhome.

Hey! Camera! Quick. Then the light went green and life moved on.
