As the Danish weather practically decided to skip Spring entirely and go directly from Winter to Summer, this is going to be a short story. However, I did manage to get a single day with my camera and the budding leaves.
I have dabbled in self-portraiture in the past, but this time I decided to go a whole other way about it.
There’s a story behind this project (not very surprising, right). I wrote a poem a couple of years ago (not a very good one) whose title was “Water”, and I ended up spilling water on it, so that the ink dissolved and half of the text was impossible to read.
I bought a vase. I held it up close to my face. And I saw…
I had a hunch in advance that Slovakia was bound to be a beautiful country – but I had no idea before I stood there. I spent a good week in and around the Slovakian part of the Tatra mountains, and I can only say that I wish the trip had been longer.
I took a good deal of photos while there, of which you can see a handful here…
You aren’t really expected to pull out a giant macro lens and start shooting the drinks at a party… But then again, why not? You never know when a picture presents itself to you so you might as well be prepared.
I was visiting my hometown (Nakskov) on my way home from vacation, and snapped a few bug pics on the way.
This is one of the shots I snapped back in November during a test of my macro lens in what I can only describe as extremely crappy indoor lighting conditions.
Actually not altogether bad all the same, although I had to crank up the ISO a lot more than I ordinarily would.
