VSCO Roundup #34 – December 2017

02.01.2018

What an amazing last month of an amazing year! December started with a few days of snow, which made me very happy. And it ended with a trip to Stockholm – three days filled with museums, walks, fika, and a hot sauna. And stunning views out of the airplane window.

Have a great new year, everyone!

VSCO Roundup #32 part 2 – October 2017

07.12.2017

How can it be December already? Time always seems to go faster during the last months of the year …

Here in the blog it’s still October and here are my mobile phone photos from a short but awesome trip to Madeira, a Portuguese island in the Atlantic Ocean. The four days were filled with beautiful hikes, spectacular views, warm weather, cold beers, tasty pastéis de nata, scary car rides, and swimming in natural volcano pools.

(Also, there’s a selfie! Sort of.)

Polaroids At The Beach

04.10.2017

Maybe it’s because I recently re-played Life Is Strange, but I suddenly remembered my old Polaroid SX-70 and the shoebox filled with film. The film is really old (I bought most of it when Polaroid declared they would stop production) and so is its expiration date. But expired film is even more fun because you never now what will happen, so I took the camera with me when I spent a sunny day at the beach in the Netherlands. Lots of photos came out wrong, some didn’t come out of the camera at all (they did eventually, of course, but not exposed), and some turned out showing exactly the mood of that day: light, warm, mellow.

Now I’m really looking forward to shooting the rest from that shoebox.

VSCO Roundup #30 – August 2017

04.09.2017

When I was preparing the photos for this post I thought that some old pictures had accidentally slipped in, because it felt like I had taken them months ago. But it turned out that it had only been a few weeks …

In August I went to a beautiful and relaxed music festival, spent a night at the beach, and saw some great art installations at Skulpturprojekte Münster. Also: minigolf and beer!

VSCO Roundup #29 – July 2017

01.08.2017

July was wild.

I spent a lot of time on bike. I did my first triathlon relay (I was responsible for the bicycle part, obviously) and I rode my first 100 kilometers on a road bike for the Rapha Women’s 100. (We didn’t join an official ride but did our own – and I really love the idea that women all over the world do the same on this exact day. You can find lots of photos when you search for #raphawomens100. Mine are here.)

I also spent a lot of time in airports and planes and I spent even more time on a ship. That’s because I went on an awesome voyage that took me all around Spitsbergen. (And briefly to Oslo.) As there was no cell phone or internet connection most of the time, I didn’t take that many pictures with my phone because I hardly had it with me. But I took thousands (literally) with my real camera. And maybe one day I will post some of them here. But until then – here’s a ton of mobile phone photos I took in July.

VSCO Roundup #28 – June 2017

03.07.2017

June mostly felt like summer is supposed to feel – bike rides, warm nights on the balcony, and lots of ice cream. The best part though was a hike in the Eifel, where you can book nice wooden platforms (with a toilet!) to camp on.

Also in this post: cat content!

VSCO Roundup #27 – May 2017

07.06.2017

Lots of great things happened in May, so there’s a ton of photos coming up. I made trips to Frankfurt and Berlin, I hiked and swam and biked a lot (for the first time in my life on the Tempelhofer Feld, which was really amazing. I want an abandoned airport in Dortmund, too!), I patted a donkey, I found lots of really strange window decorations, I drank beer in rooftop gardens, I spent early mornings at train stations and I saw some beautiful light (and shadow).

VSCO Roundup #26 – April 2017

04.05.2017

April went by pretty fast. The best thing about last month was a weekend at the beach in the Netherlands: wearing sunglasses, holding bare feet into the sea, flying a kite, walking through the storm (I still got sand in the pockets of my jacket), drinking beer, and eating frietjes, of course.
