It’s been a bit quiet here lately, but here are some photos taken the last couple of weeks! I’ve just been enjoying my freedom after I finished exams, trying to make the most of each day I have left in Edinburgh before going back home to Norway for the summer. Only a couple of days left here, and it feels so strange…Edinburgh is truly starting to feel like home and it’s going to be weird not being here for 3 months over the summer. Edinburgh in my heart<3

Just some photos from my weekend in Norway, when I went to Aas Univeristy to surprise my best friend, Elisabeth on her birthday! Norway was a bit colder than Scotland, and here spring was just starting with beautiful crocuses and green patches everywhere. Perfect for a walk with the camera.

Only got one month left of 2nd semester of uni before I’m done with exams, which means little time to do anything but uni work. I still got some photos from the photoshoot with Kate and Sunniva left that I’ll post, just so it won’t be complete silence here for a month!

Finally! Here’s some of the photos I took of Sunniva last summer, in context with her band, Vǫluspá,  releasing their first album. Check out their songs here or on Facebook here . I love how the colours in the background compliment the feathers she’s wearing, and I’m quite happy with the way these pictures turned out. I have a few more photos I’d like to share with you guys, so stay tuned 🙂

Oh, also:

I’ve been wanting to change my blog theme for a while, and finally got around to do so, giving it a more professional look and making my photos HUGE so that they stand out more. What do you guys think?

Create a hype, then turn it around

Proud to share some really cool pictures of my friend Katherine that I took a while ago. Refreshing with a new face, and she is such an easy model to work with! This girl know how to pose, and her outfits were all really amazing! These are just from the first outfit, so I’ll share some more photos later (just need to edit them all first, which takes AGES!).

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!

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.

Eighteen steps is one complete set

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!

 Happy New year everyone!

Still no snow here in Norway, only rain, rain and rain (much like Edinburgh!). My dad will be back from the North Sea in a couple of days, which means there will be more time to go hiking and take photos 🙂 Can’t wait!
