Breathing

Some photos I snapped during my hike near Meiringen (where Sherlock Holmes faked his death) on Saturday afternoon. No writing, no music, no distractions. I try to think as little as possible and focus on my environment. Let my mind and senses wander. Dried leaves rustle, stirred up by mice. Omnipresent chirping of birds. Faraway car noise. Sunshine, a pleasant breeze. Two deers half hidden in the covert. I take deep breaths. I’ve been waiting for this. Medicine for my tattered soul. I’m lucky...

The Light

On some days, I’ve laughed merrily, the black phase just a faint memory in the back of my mind. I’ve even started to wonder if I hadn’t been too dramatic. On the first spring day this year, I have a wonderful photo shoot with a very talented girl. My heart pumps passion through my veins. We create photos I love. It doesn’t happen often enough, but whenever it does, it fills me with a deep sense of accomplishment, making all the struggle and failure worth it. ✕ ✕ ✕ But...

365 Project – Week 11

Hello, my loves! <3 I know I know, this post is super late. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to share my self-portraits. I’ve been in a creative slump and it’s giving me a hard time. These are the photos from one month ago, partly taken during my trip in Paris. Gosh, I’m so glad it’s over. And yeah, I know two photos are missing – I haven’t been able to bring myself to publish them yet :/ I hope you enjoy...
