Tested out my 35 mm with some long exposure pictures of Edinburgh by night, with mixed results. Most of them got rather blurry (should have brought my tripod!), but some of them turned out quite nice!

Hey, we’ve got the world to see, so let’s forget our anxieties and get on our way

Just some very improvised pictures I took the other day while tidying my room (everything is more fun than that, am I right?). The light in my room is perfect for some nice natural light-portraits, so in the lack of a better model, I went ahead and took a few “selfies” using my 35 mm lens and the timer.

Hurray for longer days, hurray for more and more sunlight, hurray for spring!

Went for a walk with my camera in the nice Edinburgh weather yesterday. Got pretty surprised when I saw that spring was already in full motion, in February! Not sure what to think about that, but at least there was a lot of nice things to take pictures of.

Was stretching my long, awkward body over a fence to get a decent picture of some pretty snow bells in someones garden, when the owner, a sweet old lady opened her door and was like “Sweetheart, just come into the garden and take all the photos you want!”. She was so adorable! After getting a couple of good photos she even invited me to “just sit in her garden whenever I want, if I need somewhere to relax and want to enjoy some pretty flowers”. Almost picked her up (she was pretty short, but then again, compared to me, everyone is) and hugged her flat as a pancake! Made. My. Day. Thinking of printing one of the pictures and framing it to her as a gift.

Just turned 23 (5th of feb).
Another year older, definitely not a year wiser.

Some more photos from The Botanic Garden in Edinburgh. They have these storytellers telling different stories in context with the different areas. Would recommend this to everyone! Loved the colours on her outfit, so asked kindly to take a photo of her, which she said yes to (: Pretty!
