Thank You

While I'm packing...

This could be an awesome New Year Eve Outfit
don't you think?

Leaving tomorrow for France
where I'll spend Christmas with my family
and New Year's Eve with my friends.
I haven't seen them since April
so you can imagine how excited I am
(and how excited my mom is!)

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas,
thank you so much for following my little blog,
it means the world to me.

Just a minute ...


... in December.

Reading... not as fast as I'd like to.

Listening... to Midnight Juggernauts. A lot.

at home in less than a week (!)


Buying... clothes instead of Christmas gifts.

Loving... you! And you. And you.

Making... travel plans for 2010.

Just a minute started here.

A Photographic Diary: Jeff


Why do you take photos?

Photography for me is a way to understand what I see. I don't think that it always provides an answer but allows for a discussion of what we see and how we want to remember. I've always been fascinated with instances. And afraid of forgetting. Taking a picture doesn't resolve that but, at best, allows me some sort of tangible reminder of emotion.

He sees, she speaks.



Jeff is a very talented photographer - flickr
and has a very exciting project going on - blog

I have to say: this is exactly the kind of collective experiment I love. Sharing something with strangers is, in my opinion, priceless. It takes trust, tolerance and courage to give something you love or something you made to a perfect stranger. I'm very proud to be part of it, I received this polaroid. Thank you Jeff.

I wonder how many of them there are, spread in the city...

A Photographic Diary: Diana


Why do you take photos?
I take photos because it's become a part of my daily life. Like getting up to brush my teeth, drink, eat, and shower, a camera is available to me at all times.

Why does it matter to you?
At times, it gets me out of bed. I work from home and when work days are slow, I need all the motivation I can get to lift myself up. A Polaroid? Which 35 mm camera? Digital and what should I do with it? It's like Christmas day on the outcome. Even on the busiest days, I still somehow find a moment to capture it.

Why do you need it?
It's a hobby for myself. I do everything for my husband and my family and photography is the one thing I can call all mine.

A self-portrait...



Diana is an inspiration in many ways.
