Rosa between the roses

It was a beautiful, sunny summer day when I took analog pictures of my friend Rosa. This time I used a different camera, so I was really excited but also a bit scared to use it, I mean you never know what can happen with analog photography, right?  Luckily my worries were unnecessary, because the pictures turned out well :). 

Riba-Roja del Turia

Hello hello lovely people, long time no seen.... Do I have a good reason for that? Actually not, I just didn't feel like blogging the past few weeks. However now I'm back with tons of pictures, inspiration and new idea's. 

Almost a month ago I went together with my friend Suus to Riba-Roja del Turia, a small village in Spain, where my parents have a tiny appartement. After my stay in this village I was intended to travel through Spain for some weeks. Unfortunately I ended up not doing that.... Still I had 16 lovely days in Spain: many trips to Valencia, delicious fruit, cheap coffee, swims in the river, bright sun and hikes in the mountains. 

In this blogpost I'm gonna show you the pictures I took in Riba-Roja. Stay tuned for a blogpost with pictures from Valencia. :)



Where did you go this vacation?

Oh, those golden hours

A little appreciation for my favorite time of the day.

Sun Shadows & Bokeh

Lets go back to a warm, sunny summer day with Suus. After spending quite a long time on talking and drinking coffee, we found a pretty place in a park and we just started to take pictures. The light was really beautiful, which resulted in a lot of bokeh and pretty shadows.

A spontanious trip to the sea

If you ever hear me saying the Netherlands has no beautiful nature, I take it back in advance. Just remind me of the sea. Most people only go to sea when it's sunny and warm outside, but believe me: on grey, rainy days it can be even more beautiful!

Everything was so quiet and peaceful and the sea was covered in a silver glow. 

Summer dreaming

It's been quite a long time since I wrote something more personal on here, so I decided to ramble a little about life and my plans for summer. Not sure if anyone finds this interesting, but at least my 60-old-me would probably love to read this back, haha.
Last week I had my final evaluation of art school. Besided the fact that I overslept, missed de bus and had only half a hour to show all my work, I've passed this year! That means I have the opportunity to to study photography at art school, but I have other plans: industrial design at the technical University in Delft (read more about this here). I can't wait to start that new chapter of my life and move into my lovely, new room - but first summer vacation!
Only a few more weeks of work until I'm going to spend two weeks in my parents' flat in Spain. Don't expect anything fancy though: just  a tiny (very tiny) flat in a small village, but luckily close to Valencia! I think I've been there already for 15 years, but this is the first time without my parents, so excited!
After those 2 weeks I don't have anything planned yet. I'll be still in Spain, but my friend will leave and my parents and sister will come. I don't really feel like sitting in a small flat with 4 people, while it's 40 degrees, so I'm thinking about travelling through spain those last weeks; just stepping on the train with my backpack and go on an adventure! (still have to save money for it, tho...)

What are your plans for summer?
