It’s march already and we haven’t had a proper winter here in The Netherlands. Temperatures have been well above the average for this time of year and it’s about to warm up a little more.
Most of all the outrages temperatures all across the planet probably have to do with climate change, which, despite popular believe, seems very real to me. You can’t deny the weird weather across the globe like crazy snow storms in places usually deprived of snow, droughts and warm spells where snow should be falling.
About two weeks ago I planned to either go to Port or Lisbon, but unfortunately something came up and it fell through. Yet it keeps nagging in the back of my head so it has to happen. But will it be Port or Lisbon?
It’s been a week already since I last put a post online. Unfortunately I wish I could say I had a fantastic excuse for it, but I don’t. The only reason I didn’t post more often is because I have been extremely busy. Getting up at 7AM to do my daily things only to get back home around 11.30PM, ready to roll into bed to do it all over again the next day.
Usually I’d rather be behind the camera (as a hobby) than in front of it. And portraits are also generally not the things I photograph. I’m more into macro and nature photography (and of course capturing my travels as best as possible). But Bonnie from A Compass Rose has “self portrait saturday” every week and it’s amazing to see her fantastic self portraits weekly. Along with it she makes it a link up to meet other bloggers.
Because I could finally wear my new vintage dress (I saved it for my birthday) and the weather wasn’t too bad either I decided to step in front of the camera for a change. You’ll find the result below. The wind sort of messed up my hair but oh well, you can’t have everything.
It’s not that long ago but I can remember it well, the day Sarah and I left our hostel in October 2013 on a grey and overcast day in Paris to go see Sacre Coeur de Montmartre. Not only to see this beautiful Basilica but also to see the view of Paris from this spot. This photo was taken right at that moment I saw Sacre Coeur for the very first time, after climbing a long flight of stairs.
