a short love story about avocado plants

I can't remember what started this, but a few years ago I suddenly wanted an avocado plant in my life. In the beginning I saved two pits and tried to make them come alive, I planted one in soil and placed another one with its butt into water. They both started rotting after a while. People kept telling me to put them into water since that is how it should be done, but honestly the water approach never worked for me. I gave up.

Last year I put two pits into soil again and kept watering, and a few weeks later something happened. They started cracking and soon these tiny, soft light green leaves where finding their way up. They kept growing into little plants. I was worried they wouldn't survive winter, but to my surprise they seemed fine all along.

Not long ago new sprouts started coming and one of them is almost too big to fit in my kitchen window. The little one just got a new pot. I hope I can keep them alive.

It's sunday and I'm doing absolutely nothing.

this is how we walk on the moon


(In this case it isn't the moon, though.)

june / through a phone

June was a rainy and cold month, most of the time. I had four weeks off from work, and when the weather allowed it we drove, biked or walked somewhere.
I've also had copious amounts of icecream. This is what it looked like through my phone. Quality might be slightly questionable on some of these.

blooming trees & star wars

Sorry for the sporadic updates. A friend of mine sent me a text last week saying she found me in a swedish magazine (FOTO) where my blog was mentioned a few months ago. I used to read this magazine a lot and when I was younger I secretly dreamed about being featured in it. Anyway, I had no idea about this and started feeling a little guilty for not being better at blogging more often. Oh well. I got myself a new laptop recently along with some new scanning software. All I need to do now is calibrate the screen (honestly, the color balance is awful right now - everything looks weird) and get a new version of photoshop, then I will finally have a good work space at home again!

Otherwise, life is running along as usual. Below are two recent images from my phone.
My favorite Star Wars tshirt which I wore during May the 4th (be with you!) and a pink tree in bloom on my way to work.

daylight daylight daylight

I'm finally completely healed after the operation I had in november. I haven't been able to lie on my back for more than six months, and frankly it is such a relief to finally be able to sleep like a normal person again and not have to worry about turning over in the wrong way.

Another good thing - the days are getting longer and each day more and more daylight find its way into our apartment.
This was shot with the Fuji x100s and Sputnik was fascinated by the noises the self-timer made.

anna-frida & the cliffs, part one

In April last year I brought Anna-Frida to one of my favourite places to shoot some possible covers for her upcoming EP-release.
We shot three rolls of film and this was the last time I used my Zenit-b - when I got the developed film back most of the frames were a little bit
destroyed and not a single frame had that particular zenit-sharpness I'm used to. The images below were shot with a Zeiss Ikoflex on Kodak Portra.

Listen to Anna-Frida's music here.
