All alone, all by myself

-Taken in the evening at one of many train stations in Amsterdam -

sometimes it's good to be on your own. For instance, when you're rrrrreally tired and travelling by train (my favorite alone-time). You just wanna be left alone, sitting next one and listen to some music, reading a book or whatever. Resetting your mind.
I took this one when travelling back from a trip to / reunion in France. It was quiet. Dark. Chilly, I had to wait for my train but I had my Yashica with me with only 1 picture left to shoot! I decided to klick kläck this view!

What's your favorite 'Now leave me alone for a minute!'-moment?

Happy, very happy.

Scene from "Ascenseur pour l'échafaud" with Jeanne Moreau: Gelukkig, erg gelukkig. Taken with the Yashica.

Perhaps it's one of those movies only to be watched at night. won't 'feel the movie'.

Are you gelukkig? Erg gelukkig? Jeanne Moreau's facial expression and her thoughts shown in this picture represents my mood at the moment; Not sure how I's kinda mixed, you know.

Busy bee.

I graduated college exactly two weeks ago!

Since graduation, I've actually been a very busy bee...despite the fact I do not have a fulltime paying job. I'm interning at a Fashion Agency and also have a parttime job on the side since my college days. I'm still into photography (of course!) and have bought six film camera's in the last four or so weeks (!!!!). Yeah I know, It's getting a bit out of hand and I should stop buying (vintage) film camera's otherwise I can't pay my rent, insurances, food, etc., etc. I'd like to share some exciting news about my photography career. But I'll tell you more about it once it's official.....

My apologies for not updating my blog in such a long time but remember...I will never stop blogging, and I will always come back after a while. :) And if I ever stop blogging, you can still find me on the net on one of many Social Networks with Facebook and Twitter being the most used ones. So no worries. :)

Together with three other buddies, I went to visit a few friends of mine in Lille (France) last weekend. We organised a small reunion with another group of people whom we all met during our studyperiod in Sweden. La Braderie, an annual event, is the biggest European flea market and the reason we all went to Lille for the reunion. With over two million visitors in just 48 hours it was extremely crowded!

Our hostess, Aurélie.

Soon, I will have to move again (for the fourth time in 1 year) in Amsterdam. Hopefully I will then have a place to stay for a long period. And if I do, I'll save up for next year's 'La Braderie' and buy a shitload of stuff and turn my room into a cozy mess like these appartments in Apartamento Magazine.

Antique accordeon. Including case. Only €100,-

Crowd. Sometimes we were stuck for like 5 minutes. Imagine that in your own city: Just stand completely still in the middle of the road for 5 minutes. That's...friggin' long!

The people from HomeShoppingSpy also went to La Braderie and made a very beautiful post about this big event!
