Doll’s tableware

I have borrowed my daughters doll’s tableware… I thought the coffee cup looked so cute. And the tulip fits just in there :-) As you maybe have noticed I take a lot of photos of flowers these days… Why? Because they stand still, they don’t get bored just after a few minutes and they don’t talk back at you… ;-)

Have a nice weekend!

More flower ttv…

OK. So I’m a bit obsessed with my new old camera… I want to photograph all the time! Yesterday when I was taking pictures of these flowers the sun was shining, it is so much easier to take photos when there is enough light! Oh spring, come soon!

I just love the photos being created with this technique! Here are some photos of an Gerbera daisy and a Ranunculus.

Pink Tuesday

I have joined a group on flickr that is called Pretty Pink Themed Tuesday. Each Tuesday there is a new theme, last week it was “Tutu” and this week it is “Sin”. And of course it needs to be something pink in the picture!
And here is my contribution…

What sin? Take your pick:
Anger Lust Greed Sloth Gluttony Pride Envy

The little doll belongs to The House of Horror

I’m in love!

I have bought an old box camera. It’s from the 50’s I think. It is an Kodak Duaflex II. I’ve discovered this amazing way to take photos, it’s called TtV, Through the Viewfinder. Through the Viewfinder photography is defined as taking a picture of any subject through the viewfinder of any camera with another camera. Here and here can you learn more about it.

These flowers have I photographed with the TtV technique. Don’t you just love how beautiful the picture turned out!?

This is how my old box camera looks like.

Shake it like a Polaroid picture!

I was going through my stuff at the outhouse (looking for the music box) where we have all the cardboard boxes we haven’t unpacked yet. And we moved to this house 14 months ago…
I found my old Polaroid camera! Oh my, this brings back a lot of memories! But the weird thing is that I don’t find any Polaroid photos… Where have they gone?
I got so excited that I started to look if there was a possibility to buy film to the camera. An yes, you can still get film to your Polaroid but its quite expensive it turned out. I don’t think I want to pay about 30 dollars for 10 pictures!! Or? It would be kind of cool though…

Another way to get cool pictures and not so expensive is to use an action in Photoshop that turn your pics into Polaroid’s. Here is a site where you can get the Polaroid action.

Music Box

This is my music box that I got when I was child. Can you believe how thrilled I was? When I opened it up, it was pink inside! PINK!! This was in the middle of the seventies and the colour pink was very rare… ;-)

Here in Sweden we eat something called a “semla” (cream bun). Earlier we ate it at the Fettisdagen(Fat Tuesday), (Sunday before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent). It is like "Shrove Tuesday" that they have in England and USA and many other English spoken countries. In France they call the day Mardi Gras.

Nowadays when the Swedish people don’t fast before Easter the cream bun is available soon after Christmas and until Easter. The day to eat ”semla” this year occurs on the 24th of February. But I had my ”semla” today and it was so yummy!

Grouchy, grouchier, grouchiest

Sometimes you just feel a bit grouchy. You don’t know why, you just are…
Hopefully it won't last for long…

My sisters house

Today I was babysitting my nieces at my sisters house. I took the opportunity to take some photos of her home. (Inspired by Sammy Rose photos from her sisters cool apartment!)
It is our grandparents old house from 1927. My father has lived here when he was a child and I lived here with Mr Hummmlan for a couple of years. Now my sister own the house. I almost forgot, my older brother has also lived here for a couple of months with my dad and my mother when he was a newborn. So the whole family has some kind of relation to the house.

Unfortunately I didn’t have my tripod with me so I just show you a few photos that didn’t got blurry... Next time I will not forget it! And of course I will show you the photos on the blog!
