I left

I'm leaving this blog, for a long break or forever, I'm not sure yet. I have to take care of my life, it's a bit complicated at the moment. I'm sure I will come and say hi to my blog friends every now and then though...

Love Maria

Foxes - everywhere

Photo: Jamie says dream

It's a good thing that I like foxes, because they are everywhere :-) Above a thrifted embroidered fox from my home, below some foxy goodies from blogs and Etsy.

And for my Daily dose of quirkiness - a tree climbing fox with friends! I wonder what made them climb up the trees? They look good up there anyway :-)

Reflections on photograpy - great book

Nina Korhonen: Systrar (Sisters), Finland 1989 
Last week I found a wonderful book with very interesting photos in a charity shop. The photos are shot by different photographers, but are all accompanied by reflexions by the Swedish poet Marie Lundquist. The texts helps me to stay with the photo, lets me take part of Marie Lundquist's thoughts and associations, but also gives me inspiration to look more closely at the images. Drömmen om verkligheten is the title of this great book (english: the dream about the reality). I have seen photos of some of the photographers before, but I will certainly look for more images from the ones that are unknown to me.

I photographed just a few pages from the book. Hope you like the photos too, even though the quality is not the best when depicted in this way...

You can find these and other great photos with reflexions by Marie Lundquist in Drömmen om verkligheten.

Autumn has arrived here in Sweden, and the fitness clubs are trying to get our attention. The Climbing Wall in my Daily dose of quirkiness has managed to get a lot of attention, and no wonder! If you visit Tokyo you can try it at Illoiha Omotesando fitness club.
