Dear Optimists,

When Den talked about how much he loves vintage photos I couldn’t help but feeling a bit sad that I won’t be able to be the creator of such photographs. I wish I had a time machine so I could go back to those times and shoot some photographs.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a time machine, but it doesn’t stop me doing what I love the most. Photographing.
I haven’t got much time these days to actually shoot like I did when I worked professionally, but when I do it it just feels right.

There’s this certain connection between us – me and the camera. We don’t always speak the same language (the new camera I ordered last year is from a foreign country and obviously, it hasn’t learned English nor Danish just yet), but we have this common understanding when creating.

It gives me peace, yet it creates excitement inside of me that I can’t shake off. Not that I want to.

When something makes you this happy, learn from my mistake and do it more often. Get involved, find time, do what you love.

    1. I wish I knew how to play the piano. No, I wish I knew how to play any instrument, actually. 🙂

      Aww, thank you ❤

      1. I’ve noticed! I really like your latest post from Egypt – where you wrote they might be too blurry? I love them! I need to go through your blog when I get to a computer! 🙂

      2. Ha ha, mix-up! I reply to comments on my phone, and it appeared as if you commented that you were also photographing 😀 Ha ha, I better start replying to comments when I’m on the computer 😉 But I like your photos! Yay!

  1. So true… really, so incredibly true. We’re planning to photograph the next town in our project. Can’t wait – forget about the day job – time for relaxation!

      1. For once, our planning went fairly quickly – so we headed out two weeks ago. The result of our photography ‘spree’ was uploaded just this morning! Have a look! (was logged in with my personal avatar last time, just click on bjorn&ingrid to link through to our photoblog!) Hope you like! 🙂
