If you follow me on instagram you might have noticed I traveled by boat over the long weekend, just like I did last year. I visited the Swedish island Gotland again, to craft, embroider, eat, talk and laugh among friends. I mostly used by big camera, and took lots and lots of new favorite photos as well as starting about 10 new craft projects (non of which I completed). I wanted to share a few of my perspectives from the ocean with you guys today, mostly looking down at the variety of it all…
I want to remind myself, and you too if you need it, that we don’t need to travel far, or even to another country to experience new things, to marvel at the magic of nature or to find photo opportunities everywhere we look… It’s in the eye of the beholder. Wonder is in the moment. And if there is some sunshine all the better…
Not sure what I will do with all these photos, but I would like to share a few more so hope you guys want to see more views of Gotland?
Last year I created a photo travel book of the weekend away and next week I will share some of the spreads form that book! Until then, a big camera selfie of the photographer herself:
Tomorrow it’s June 6: National Day of Sweden. I think photos are the best celebration of a place, so I will go out on new adventures tomorrow. Might hum a bit of this song, in Swedish:
Thou ancient, thou free, thou mountainous north
Thou quiet, thou joyful [and] fair!
I greet thee, most beautiful land upon earth,
Thy sun, thy sky, thy meadows green… [first verse of the Swedish national anthem]
Love your photographs. I agree that you don’t have to travel far to enjoy new experiences. Looking forward to seeing more of your pictures.
Gorgeous pictures! Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing more.
Beautiful photos, Hanna.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos with us, Hanna! I especially liked the two of the water and the self portrait! Such fun! Look forward to seeing more of your trip!
Your photos are so pretty – I feel like I went on vacation with you! Love your self portrait and your white nail polish :)
Your photos remind me that my idea of Sweden as a land of snow and frost is not correct, at least most of the time.
Love the ocean. Love your photos! <3
