A new beginning

Fading

When I made this image, I called it “Fading out”
But I have a sense it would fit with “Partners” as well. Fading out and fading in. Plain and colorful. Soft and rough. Opposites that have to go together to make a complete reflexion. A coherent whole!

And apropos creating images! Just the other day I took the daring step to let print two of my images. I ordered them directly from Picture/Apple as posters, in the stunning size of 40 x 50 centimeter. O_o
I just wanted to see what they’ll look like in real life! On paper! How big is 40 times 50 anyway?

I have a dream of gathering my best pieces on an exhibition. Perhaps next time when we have this shared exhibition at the Cafeteria, so I wont have to show too many objects. It’s quite expensive with canvas prints, frames et cetera.

You know… Everything starts with a dream, and without dreams – no reality!

These two are the first ones I chose to see if this dream of mine is possible to realize. You see, I have my ideas what I’ll do with them to become “real” images/objects! It’s not enough just to have them printed as they are now. I have a couple of ideas… And I just have to try!

I’m supposed to get the prints tuesday or wednesday next week. I’m both nervous and excited about it.

And then I’ll experiment.

Ro, ro, ro canoe… 

… gently down the stream…

The original photo to this green yellow view was taken in april 2008. It was way too blurry, I was tempted to delete it at once but couldn’t force me to.
But instead of trying to sharpen the picture to make it “good”, I rather enhanced the blurriness. Sharpening it wouldn’t have done any good anyway.

The stream is passing through my town, and here it’s very near to its mouth and the harbour. It has just barely passed downtown city and in the background is a park belonging to our old castle built during the years 1600-1615 when most of south Sweden belonged to Denmark.

About 2 miles upstream there is a canoe club, and during the 3 years I lived in a flat facing the stream, I could often see people canoeing both downstream and upstream. All year around! Well! Not when there was ice on the surface of course.

I’m very unsure of the proper word for “stream” here. This one is many miles long, not particularly big but not small either. Nothing like a flood, probably not a river, but not as small as a creek. Can anyone help me out here?
Swedish is a difficult language “they” say, and sometimes I agree to that statement. At least when I’m struggling to find the best English word when I write,
In Swedish this size of stream is called an “å” (is pronounced like the first syllable in awesome) and we have quite many of them here in the south. Farther (further?) north we have bigger ones. Those I think is better referred to as rivers. 

Yes, the english language can also be quite puzzling sometimes. I know. I have the App Elevate on my iPad and I always make mistakes when to choose between further and farther… and chose and choose… and…..

And the word “mile” here, isn’t meant to be the swedish “mil” which is the same as 10 kilometers. Nope! I mean mile. 1 mile = 1,61 km

A Walk around the Lake

I wish I could give you the feeling of sun against the bare skin,
the singing of the birds and the humming of the bees,
a gentle breeze whispering through the trees,
and the richness you only can sense nearby a lake in the heart of summer.

Another day in Paradise

I have a feeling my life always keeps tossing and turning me around. One special occasion? There are nothing but occasions.

The sun shines, and suddenly it starts to thunder. You’re filled with sorrows, are maybe even crying, and then someone or something makes you smile. You lose your job, and maybe get a new one. You meet someone. You loose someone…

How could I pick one single moment, from all the moments that mixed together are called Life.
