Hello there! It’s the ending of the last sunday in April and I’m sitting in front of the computer in my new black and floral tunic and listening to Tunnel of Love (Springsteen). When you don’t know what kind of music to listen to, you can always put on Tunnel of Love and everything will be ok. Now I was sure, it was Tunnel I wanted to listen to.
I often start a blog with a picture of myself. Do I love myself that much? It’s not that, I just feel like posting a selfie now and then where my camera is present. Because you know, the camera is an extention of myself.
The plan today was to go on a phototrip with my friend Ellen. She suggested it earlier this week and I said of course yes. We were to play when / where to go today. Unfortunately the phototrip didn’t happen, because Ellen was not in the mood for it. She was too tired. So in stead I just visited her; talked, watched TV (the Ellen Show and American Idol) and ate dinner together.
Even though the phototrip didn’t happen, I didn’t leave my camera behind when I went to see Ellen. I thought I still could take pictures on my way to her and on my way home again. And that’s what I did.
It was great to see that it still was light outside when I left her apartment at 19.30.
A line from a Leonard Cohen song comes to mind when I see this shot. I’m not sure if it’s because I bought tickets to see Leonard Cohen in Oslo in August that does it… Anyway, the line goes like this: there’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in. That line is so beautiful and… yeah.. beautiful.
Lots of grain. The ISO was way too high here. But the light on the leafs and the light in general is nice.
Sweet shadow. I can’t pass such a great shadow and not photograph it. I need to find more shadows like this one. I love how things cast shadows. To cast a shadow. Now that makes me think of another song. Cast no Shadow by Oasis. Great song!
Before my mind goes through the entire music jungle, I think it’s time to go to bed. Oh wait, just one more musical reference.
Jungle makes me think of Jungleland by Springsteen. That song is pure awesomeness. Go listen to it here!
