Photographer

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.

Always.

Love,
Nadia.

Shower

Dear Optimists,

I’m so fortunate that I’ve been out of the country twice this Summer. One of the trips was a three week holiday in Iceland where Mum lives, as you probably already know, the other one was a solo-trip to London.
I was quite nervous to travel all by myself, but Boyfriend encouraged me and repeatedly told me I was sooo awesome daring to travel all by myself. I like when people think I’m cool, so of course I went.

The day before I left, we had a shower together.

“Are you gonna bring your camera?,” Boyfriend asked me.
“Nah…,” I smiled, “That would be crazy!”

He looked at me wondering; why wouldn’t I want to take my camera with me to London?

I laughed: “Of course I’m bringing it, it was the first thing I packed!”

Then it occured to me that I’d forgot to pack my knickers. It’s obvious what’s more important to a photographer.

Love,
Nadia.
