Big In Japan

Big In Japan. Infinite loop. Laura’s beautiful voice mingles with Nick’s velvety one. Nick, about whom J told me all those years ago. 2013. It feels like a lifetime ago, but I still have his cover of Radioactive on my iPod. A memento of a very intense time in Singapore. And surprisingly, I’ll get to know him soon – through photography. It doesn’t hurt to ask, Monika. I used to admire him from afar. Thought he was too talented, too handsome,...

2000

I can’t believe it – my blog has reached 2000 followers! When I started it sixteen months ago, I never imagined there’d be so many people interested in what I’m sharing. Thank you so much for your support, especially in form of comments! ♥ I’m still trying to figure out how I can return all the love you give me. One day I’ll come up with something creative! In the meantime, I’d like to think of you as people with names and stories and not...
