This week has been a photo filled week for me, or the fact that I’m sharing my photo’s here. I love anything visual (hence the blog), which has led me to take photographs in the first place. That, and someone kept telling me that I’m a good photographer, I have a nice eye for the setups or layouts for the photo, and I should continue doing that. This led me to get my very first digital single-lens reflex camera (dslr). I got it back in 2008 or 2009, not sure anymore. It was only last summer back at home in Finland that I started messing around with my Canon. Through that I’ve learned to go from full auto to full manual, even the focus! I keep learning each time I use my camera, and I try to take it with me almost everywhere I go. My inspirations mainly started from nature, which still remains one of my biggest inspirations. I’m slowly starting to get more comfortable photographing people (‘models’?). I have a couple of ideas for setups but don’t really have anyone who would want to be my model (or maybe I don’t dare to ask anyone…) ;-)
Last week I wasn’t well-prepared, so I didn’t participate for the Scavanger Hunt Sunday. Instead, I participated in Wordless Wednesday, where I could go back to my archives, and finally was able to show some of my favorite shots! This week, I went and took some of these photo’s early on in the week, making sure I can choose which ones I’d like to use for this week’s Scavanger Hunt..
What better way to start the spring than to see these lovely flowers blooming already? I didn’t think it would be easy for me to find a fitting picture for grains, and then I came across this on my little walk earlier this week. I think this fits perfectly for the theme! I also love the colors they bring..
This was a hard one for me… or so I thought. I had a couple of ideas that I could have done for this but as I was browsing the pictures I took earlier this week on my walk, I came across this one. It was the last photo I took on my walk. It was an accidental photo as I didn’t have too much time to concentrate anymore when I took this photo. It turned out so much better than what I had thought. I think that this is a creative interpretation of stitch, as it’s laid on the ground.
At first, I thought I would take some pictures of the local public transportation. It was too obvious. I nearly passed by this car without noticing it. I thought it was adorable, small and somewhat old fashioned car – exactly what I was looking for!
Ever since moving here, I’ve been wanting to get this drink called WKD. As soon as I read this week’s SHS includes bubbles, I knew that I would get the drink and use it. I also love the color of the drink, especially when blue/turqoise are some of my favorite colors! The bubbles may be small but they’re bubbles regardless! (WKD is even better than I remembered, it tastes like soda. I’d recommend it to anyone, especially those who don’t like the taste of alcohol.)
This was one of the hardest ones to come up with. What is simple to me? What does simplicity mean to me? Those questions I asked a lot. Then suddenly, it hit me – simple to me is going back to basics, to nature. I started with the stones (rose quartz, fluorite and I’m not sure what the small stone is anymore). The wooden background fitted perfectly to this theme! In the small box, there is a form of incense I still have yet to figure out how to use. I also love how my traditional Finnish ring, from Kalevala Koru collection was given to me by my God parents when I was about 15 or so. This is my favorite piece of jewelry I own! It also keeps reminding me of my spirit guides, especially animal spirit guides. So, this is what simple, and simplicity means to me.
So, there you have my interpretations of this week’s Scavanger Hunt. Let me know what you think in the comments. From now on, I will try and participate to Wordless Wednesday as well as to Scavanger Hunt Sunday. I think they’re quite a lot of fun, also gives me the opportunity to use my creativity each week!
