Another weeks has passed by and the end of my term is closing in. But I do have a couple of jam-packed weeks until then. So these weekly updates will continue until further notice. With no, or little, further ado:

An early wakeup call required multiple calls. What followed was a long day on campus doing various things around and about.

The end of a long day meant hiding under various blankets before dinner.Photo 23-03-2013 14 37 54

A weekend visit to a vintage fair ended with a happy and cozy lunch at Wagamama’s with some of the loveliest ladies I know (Including lovely Siiri (who is here as well), Laufarn and two ladies who wished to remain unnamed.

Afterwards Siiri and I walked over to the nearest Boots and along the way we stopped at HMV where we found this standing, menacingly glowering at passer-by’s. Siiri did ask if I wanted a picture of myself with Connor but I figured that would have been a step too far so two pictures sufficed.

The weeks prior to Easter holiday were mostly days spent in the studio, testing and re-shooting some projects.

Studio work quickly becomes routine when you know what you are after and the lighting your image requires. There’s not much “magic”, it’s mostly sweaty and frustrating work.Photo 26-03-2013 13 20 17

Film – my favorite photographic material, how I have missed you. I’ve really enjoyed finding my way back into the craftwork of processing and developing film. Truth be told, digital photography is nothing like analog photography and I prefer analog.

On the other hand, scanning negatives is not as nearly as enjoyable as processing and is a lot more time-consuming and a surprisingly mind-numbing and mechanical task.

But then – Easter break! Which means a lot of things, including but not restricted to:

And that is how my eventful my previous week(s) was (Not very). I’ll be gone for most of this week and will be arriving back home Sunday night which means that Wednesday and Friday will be post-less. Blogging will resume as usual on Monday. After that I’ll be spending the rest of my break doing research for an essay and visiting museums, shows and sites around town.
