A Photographic Diary: Andrew

-



Foreword.

From time to time you have one of those moments: you suddenly realize "it's been a year" or you suddenly realize you've actually been following someone's blog for months. Even though you've never met him/her, you surprise yourself calling him/her a friend. I got that feeling a lot recently. I'm better at keeping in touch with some of you than with friends I've know for years. As I'm giving the Photographic Diaries another shot, I couldn't think of a better way to introduce the bloggers to be featured here in the next days than by mentioning this community. A real community where I find inspiration and support every single day.

So here we go:
thank you.
- Adeline.

Why do you take photos?

First time someone has asked me this, normally it's 'why did you take THAT photo'. I take photos to document the time that i am living in, to capture the events around me that happen and that i also create. For me, these cannot be captured or documented by any other medium.





A self-portrait...

Love...





Andrew is one of the first bloggers I got in touch with
so, you know, he has a special place in my tiny heart.

It all got started when I contacted him to get involved in the Shared Themes Project.

You can visit him here.
I love to follow his daily adventures on Twitter
and his Flickr is one of my favourite photostreams.
Just so you know.

Games for Days

-





Have you guys heard about Looklet?
I was introduced to it by Mademoiselle Robot.
From time to time, it feels good being 5 years old again
and playing with virtual dolls.
Instead of uploading one more photo of myself,
I thought I'd share some of the looks I created.







Which one is your fave?

How to build a home.



A year ago I took part in the Shared Themes Project. As I had just moved back to Norway and was still unpacking, I chose the theme "home".

Andrew is actually one of the first people I got in touch with through Twitter and I can't believe it's already been a year since we got started with the project. The project is his idea. We used a disposable camera. He shot half of the camera then sent it to me. I shot the other half then returned it to him.

You can see the whole set here.

Other people have been participating ever since,
so make sure you also have a look at the project's Flickr.


Thanks Andrew!

Det er mig der holder træerne sammen...

A few days ago, Laura left a comment on a old post of mine...

Remember Talking Trees?






Well, at first, I thought: "Oh no, I'm done with this project... I've already made 30 signs blablabla nonono." But later on, while I was browsing through the whole set, I realized a spring collection would actually be a brand new project: no need to walk in the snow freezing as hell, different light, different colours... different state of mind.


So you know... have a look here to read about the project
and if you want me to leave a message in a tree for you,
if you want to put a smile on the face of someone you've never met...
...just drop me a line.


"Saving the world,
one smile at a time."

Where Damage Isn't Already Done

"Everyone looks the same.
Still we have different names."





Kinda looking like a sad clown on this one.

Song here.
