NE took me on a surprise visit to hamburg this weekend and we are getting married! it’s been the best weekend ever!
today NE is guest blogging
First thanks to Lea for letting me be the guest blogger today. The pictures above were taken at a chess tournament I attended yesterday. My team lost 7-1 but I managed to win my game. I know you’re all anxious to know how it went so here we go: 1. e2-e4, e7-e5 2. d2-d4, exd4 3. d2-d3, exd3 4. Nxd3, Nd6…
good morning, good morning! it has been a particularly nice wednesday morning today, having breakfast with NE and his sister brinja. breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day and extended breakfasts - even better!
thanks for all your comments to my previous post. as a lot of you remarked it looked really cold and frosty that day, but actually it was just the white seeds of the plants that made it look all wintery. i’ll answer comments later today - now i need to get some work done.
just a couple more photos from our trip yesterday. hope you’ll have a nice saturday!
thanks for all your comment to the previous post - i’ll answer them tomorrow when i have more time.
the past few days i have - walked several walks in sunshine, bought two vintage shirts, been making tea for NE who has been down with a cold and made one delicious omelet for lunch. mmm omelet!
thanks for all your sweet compliments to my wardrobe! you are too kind!
- mary: thanks mary! yeah i think so as well - a fun idea to line up what you have worn through the week. cool that you can also wear winter skirts now! - there’s something special about winter skirts
- alexandria: i feel the same way. the look of the sky is everchanging and i can’t get enough of pictures of it! thanks for your kind words about my wardrobe.
- maria, nathalie, anna, elisabelle and ulrika: thanks girls! you are so sweet! : )
- ne: pip!
- shokoofeh: hello shokofeh, thanks for your comment and compliments to my pictures! i love hearing from new readers! : )
- sekimachihato: yeah it looked like something out of one of those “the end of the world” movies. hope the weather is more sunny in hong kong. yep and now you know who “lea” is : )
- jenna: thank you jenna! happy to know you liked my outfits : ) my glasses are rather new but i’m so happy to have a new pair, as i had the old ones for many years.
- emilia: tak emilia!
- bf: thanks brian! my thumb is almost back to it’s usual self, so that’s great!
- sam: hi sam : ) thank you for your comment and compliments to the blog!
- máni: neither do i! cloud pictures are just beautiful
- kristina: ja, virkelig dramatisk! mht. tøjet/klädsel så tænkte jeg ekstra over at det ikke skulle være mørke farver alle dage, men ellers ikke. det repræsenterer meget godt en typisk uge for mig. : )
hello fellow weekenders! (probably not a proper word) so far it has been a great weekend seeing old friends and meeting new people! these photos have no connection what so ever other than this blog post. the first one taken on samsø - of a small group of starlings doing a bit of formation flying. so fascinating to watch them when they fly in large numbers don’t you think? the second one of NE working on the computer and the last one shows a great surprise treat we recieved from our sweet neighbours because we had been looking after our four-legged neighbour rufus. thanks mette and D! delicious brownies, chocolate and red wine!
- lotte: ja, jeg er også glad for den, bruger den som indkøbsnet…ikke så glamourøst ; )
- ali: hello ali, great to hear from you again : ) and thanks for your kind words! happy you like the photos
- ida: tak, og også tak for info om print!
- sekimachihato: i did the same, only with these uneatable red berries and i think you are right, that was your artistic side showing through : )
- epe, nathalie, kristina, anna and kristina k: thank you girls!
- rudegirls: hehe, fin lille sang ; )
- lorenza: yeah i really like the yashica as well, only sometimes i’m a bit frustrated with all the light leaks (about every second one of the photos in the film)but i guess that goes with the territory : )
- ne: hæ, det tænkte jeg nok
- kristi: thanks kristi, i only noticed the sky in the windows after i had the film developed
- alice: hi alice. i’m mostly using fujifilm superia. and mostly 200 iso..found a lot of roles at a very low cost in a supermarket. this one is a kodak film though. it was expired but apparently not “enough” as the colors turned out more or less normal. in general i’m content with the superia film, there’s a flickr group dedicated to it, so you can check it out there if you like.
- jenna: hello jenna! happy to have you back. i must head over to your blog to see what you have been up to! : )
- lorenza: yeah autumn light is somethng special!
- nathalie: nothing beats an empty and peaceful beach! after writing the note about photographing people from the back i realised that i like this type of pictures because of the slightly mysterious and dreamlike atmosphere you get…can’t really describe it properly. but they certainly become more “open” photos when you can’t see the person’s face
- ida: helt med på hvad du mener. selv om det er efterår har billederne også noget dansk sommer over sig.
- paula: you are right, it was a very calm and relaxing holiday on samsø. i’m looking forward to see your august/september photos!
- alexandria: yeah, it’s such a great idea with that train hostel! very inventive! glad you liked the beach and film photos : )
- young: tak! jeg kan varmt anbefale samsø, meget smuk ø! efter at jeg havde skrevet noten om de evigt rygvendte personer i mine billeder, er jeg også kommet til den konklusion - at det skæve og ufuldstændige portrætbillede ofte er mere interessant fordi man ikke ser det hele, men selv skal lægge noget i billedet.
a few more photos from samsø. these ones from a nice walk at the beach with quiet water and warm afternoon light. we had the beach to ourselves besides from an older couple (in the third photo) who had walked to the beach to empty their fish trap. we were surprised to see the man with the cane being the one climbing the big rocks to get to the trap but we both agreed that he had probably done that a million times before.
note: at some point i have to start photographing people from the front…
here are just a few more photos from lund and from the train journey going to lund. i like the one of NE holding his coffee cup in the air suspended while eagerly rephrasing a news article or something like that. tomorrow we are going to the small danish island called samsø to visit his father and stepmother who have a house there. i’m really looking forward!
- gracia: thank you gracia! happy to know you liked the train and autumn photos!
- kristi: yeah, a nice place and great to try something different! i definately recommend the train hostel
- lorenza: i enjoy that as well! discovering places you wouldn’t otherwise have known about! i must read that agatha christie murder mystery
- lola: thanks!
- lotte: hej lotte, alt vel her tak : ) du har helt ret mht. toget - det oser af hercule poirot : ) næ der skete ikke noget bemærkelsesværdigt…
- hanna: cool, i look forward to meeting you for a fika at “din nye ven”!
- ulrika, peggy and epe: thanks girls!
- anna: thank you anna! glad you like ‘em and i agree those two photos really look like fall
- mette / ungt blod: me too, you can really feel that it’s a university city!
- ai: thank you ai, happy to know you liked the grey post : ) actually NE and i talked about whether it felt like being in a foreign country and it really did! well of course it feels familiar as well becuase sweden is similar to denmark but it did feel like we were in another country and on holiday!
this week and weekend has been marked by celebration and dinners and lovely guests. yesterday NE sisters - sigga and brinja threw him a surprise party to celebrate the fact that he had handed in his thesis. i had to make sure we were late for the party (i’m a natural at this) as everyone needed to get there first. it was a great surprise!
thank you so much for all your advice about good crime fiction writers - i was overwhelmed by all your comments! i’m going to make a list and take it to the library as soon as possible.
- sandra: thanks for the tip! i will add roslund & hellström to my list
- ritva: i know, looks like midnight blue to me but the picture was taken in the afternoon
- dorte: hej dorte! tak for din kommentar! har godt hørt om dinosaurens fjer, men ikke den anden, dem vil jeg helt klart tjekke op på.
- gracia: thank you gracia - the seasons are rapidly changing here! fun to think about that you are going through the opposite change, towards warmer weather and bright light. i tend to do both as well, read and watch my fellow train passengers and the landscape passing : )
- dakota: hello dakota! i am well thank you, but also busy these days which means less time for blogging…
- ida: uha, ja så kan jeg godt forstå at du ikke kan lide at læse krimier : ) glad for at høre at du kan li billederne!
- lorenza: yes it is such a beautiful train journey! harry potter is a good suggestion, i really liked the films so will probably like the books as well!
- katrine: JA, de bøger er utrolig spændende! jeg skriver mankel på listen - tak for tip!
- hanna: i saw the movie as well, before i read the books. its funny that i haven’t read any agatha christie…don’t know how that happened. thanks for the recommendation hanna!
- mette/ungt blod: lyder interessant med coloplast, det må du fortælle mere om ved lejlighed : ) og ja, svært at komme tilbage efter stieg larsson…svært at forestille sig at man kan finde lige så medrivende krimier! tak for anbefalingerne!
- anna: oh didn’t know that you can also get his books in the states, but then it has been such a massive succes so why not! let me know if you think of something : )
- epe: yes i like them a lot, of course they are very crime fiction like - you know, not very deep, but so so exiting to read! i can fully recommend them.
- kristina: thank you kristina! i love inspector rebus, but i have only seen the tv series, but i’m sure i would like the books as well! that praktica of yours looks to be a great camera!
- julochka: thanks for the recommendation, i will add karen fossum to the list. really was a shame that stieg larsson died! would have loved to read more of his books
replies to “special occation + special mail”
- rynke: yeah me too!
- lotte: ja, der må være nogen der har strøet sovepulver meget lokalt lige der hvor jeg bor på amager! den mest logiske forklaring : ) puh det er længe siden jeg har skrevet en blog post, det er blevet efterår i mellemtiden!
- trinsch: yes, they are very pretty. can understand why you long a little for fall…but then i will probably long for summer soon when it gets dark and rainy here : )
- katrine: hehe en fin oversættelse - håndleds-ormene : ) vi har fejret det i løbet af ugen og weekenden men regner også med at holde en lidt større fest senere på måneden.
- fanny: yeah, yellow is such a happy color!
- sekimachihato: i feel the same way, i have new gloves/wrist worms and now i only need somewhere cold to use them : ) wow 33 degrees is hot!
- anna: thanks anna!
- ai: you have the same ones! how fun! yeah i see your point about the hand shot, it gives a special effect with the blurriness around the fingers
- julochka: yep, they are
- sandra: those wrist worms are just perfect, happy to know you like my floor arrangement of them..it always seems like the best light is just under the window so thats why i often photograph things there.
- alexandra hedberg og kristina: tak, ja, kan også være jeg fortryder mit ønske om koldere vejr, når først det er her : )
replies to “saturday!”
i agree, so interesting when you suddenly see the similarities between languages. didn’t think about it when i posted this photo, but is is quite similar to english
- outi: hehe : ) glad you like the photos!
- kristi: yeah it’s a little mean. think it is because there’s algea in the these ponds. but yes it is also typical for denmark with a lot of rules and signs.
- sigga: tak : )
- anna: thank you anna, i wish i had more time for blogging these days, but i guess its varies from time to time
- chelsea: hey, you got it right! and i agree, it’s good fun!
