I had coffee at my grandmothers today. I brought my camera and felt the inspiration filling my whole body as I sat there, listening to her. I was so inspired by several beautiful photographic sites that I visited before I went out. I wanted to capture everything around me. But from this day only fractures of seconds will remain.

I’m glad I brought my camera. No, I’m happy happy happy. These photos are not at all my usual style of photography, but I love them! I also love my grandmother, I love her lace curtains, her porcelain, her living room, her voice and her beautiful hands. Me, dad and a friend went by car to a flea market later and I took photos in the car out the window and at the flea market. Just a lot of random little things that caught my eye. I saw much more than I usually do because I was not looking to buy, I was looking for things to capture and savour. I will edit those photos too.

Have you taken photos of what you love this week?

  10. Oh, Hanna… I just love these. Especially the one of your gramma. You should frame that one of her. Gramma’s are the best thing ever.

    Really lovely and endearing photos from your grandmum’s house.

    I have just come out of a quiet period where I didn’t take too many photos, but spring is almost here and the snow is almost melted, so I’ve been photographing things that are peeking out in my gardens. :)

    They are very nice shots. I especially like the calendar one, but they’re all nice.

    (Which reminds me I should someday source a calendar with the month Juli :) )
