...

Hi everyone! Remember me? So, I,m alive and I feel really sorry about neglecting my blog. There is not much to tell actually... Life is now all about surviving long days at uni and procrastinating on weekends although there,s homework to do.

Well, at least I,ve got some photos to share. These had been taken a couple of days before all the leaves were blown away. I,m so happy I got the chance to use those yellow tones as a background! Ah, totally feel like doing a new photo shoot, it,s been quite a long while since the last one.









Have a nice week!

Love,
Vera

Vera

Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing great.
As for me, life has been keeping me busy lately but I enjoy it. One of the secrets of staying optimistic is appreciating the small things in life. It always helps although it might take some time to learn the science of gratitude.

Now that this hectic week is over I finally have the time to share some photos from a recent photo shoot. Vera contacted me for the first time back in May but I was busy and stressed with exams and felt completely uninspired, so we had to postpone everything. Only a couple of weeks ago I realized I had gained enough inspiration for a new photo shoot and it finally happened.
I,m so happy I got the chance to meet this wonderful girl! She has a rare kind of beauty: when you look at her you can see her wonderful personality. It,s not everyday that you see such kind eyes in front of your lens.













Have a nice weekend everyone!

Step Into Autumn



Well, these photographs are very special to me. For several reasons. Firstly, this girl. Alyona is the only person who I feel absolutely comfortable around and I always appreciate her company. Secondly, these photos remind me of how warm that beautiful evening was. There was still a hint of summer in the air. Thirdly and most importantly, these pictures were taken with my new Rolleiflex camera. It was my first medium format experience and I,m so happy with the outcome! The camera is about 60 years old but works perfectly, I can,t wait to take more portraits with it.






Have a nice day everyone!

Gotland



So, in the end of July I traveled to Gotland with my dad. What is Gotland? It is a swedish island, and quite a fascinating one. Driving through the island makes you feel confused all the time because your mind keeps failing to understand how the elements of the south can be mixed into a northern lanscape so effortlessly.
Gotland is everything. It has a most impressive coastline: amazing sea stacks, sandy beaches, rich bird life... This island even has it,s own savannah. Yep, a northern savannah.
Being the one who explores the world through the lens of a camera I secretly hoped for a cloudy weather. Imagine it: dramatic cliffs and a gloomy sky in the background. Perfection. But this never happened. When we arrived the sun was scorching from above.

Anyway, nothing could spoil the experience. It was quite a short trip but I enjoyed every minute of it. It was a great escape from reality and Gotland is the right place for an off the beaten path vacation.






















































Wishing everyone a nice day!

Plants


I,ve been really into plants lately. It all started when my mom brought home small cacti from Ikea and taking care of them turned out to be so much fun! Later I discovered a greenhouse in the university garden and got fascinated by the greenery I found there, especially by succulents. I know, everyone likes succulents nowadays, so being obsessed with them looks like following the trend, right? But I think it,s a good trend. Taking care of plants teaches you things like patience and responsibility and brings you closer to nature.
My succulent and cacti collection is growing really fast and I get overexcited every time I see them. Guess what,s on my birthday wish list? Right. A pretty succulent. Or two, you can,t have too many of them.

Have a lovely Monday everyone!
