Pretty light

polaroid
This is one of my favourite photos. I just love the light in polaroid pictures! I just wish I had more polaroids left besides the last package I keep in my fridge. But the good thing is it gives me more time to play with my Diana F+ and hope to get some nice results with that one!

The cat is Jack, my chubby pal! Traveling in Asia for a couple of months makes me miss him very much!

I really enjoyed doing these few post for the Drifter and the Gypsy! Hope you did too!

Hometown Beauties

When I got Micaela's mail if I wanted to guestblog on her blog I got so excited! Just a small introduction! I am Lenneke and come from the Netherlands just like blogfriend Mila! You already have a sneak peak of my home see post bellow 'Pretty spaces'! I also love to blog, 'A little hamster' and recently started with my own jewellery label 'Made by l e n n e b e l l e'!

My hometown Rotterdam has a lot to offer when it comes to art, design, architecture and culture and it's filled with creative people doing their thing! These are my favourite Rotterdam based designers! Martine Viergever (jewellery), Daisy Kroon (fashion) Carola Zee (ceramics) and Charlotte Wooning (jewellery).

Daisy Kroon recently also did a photoshoot with stylist and friend Sophia from this pretty blog 'SoBinique', check out Daisy's website!

    Since I am from The Netherlands, I thought it would be nice to show you some Dutch stuff.

    I read lots of magazines for the necessary bit of daydreaming.

    My favorite Dutch interior magazines are Ariadne at Home, VT Wonen, and 101 woonideeën. Here are some photographs from these mags. Hope you like!

    Lots of white and pastel colors, which I love!

    They make a home pretty and soft and create such a nice and relaxing atmosphere.

    The lighting in Alicia Bock's photographs is just breathtaking...
    It creates such a beautiful, melancholic atmosphere. She's entirely self-taught, which makes her talent even more amazing.

    I love ‘spring feel’ photographs, I think I find these ones the most beautiful. Are you dreaming of spring as well?

    Have a lovely Monday!

    I'm taking a wee little break (1 week) from blogging and I have two lovely guest bloggers to take care of my blog while I'm gone. I know you'll enjoy their posts :)

    P.S. The winner of my 8x10 print giveaway is rouge ribbon! Please email me with your postal address and what print you would like!

    P.P.S. I've added the pictures from the flower field photo shoot in my shop! A few of you have emailed me, asking how the sizes/prices work, so here's how I set up my shop: The default size is 8x10, but you can get any size you want (4x6, 5x7, 9x12... etc.) if you contact me and the prices vary depending on which size you get. Hope this clarifies things!

    This picture is just so amazing I had to share it. The eye contact, her expression is so powerful, haunting almost. alskjflksjasdf I am in love.

    And the photographer is only 17 which is so mindblowing. What are they feeding these kids to give them such talent?!

    More photos by me, from a photo shoot on Monday.

    There were so many bees because of the flowers one of the little girls pointed to a bee and said, "Uh, there's a stingy over there." It took awhile to convince them that as long as they didn't disturb the bees, the bees wouldn't hurt them.

    Fun fact:
    The flowers are called mustard greens and are used to make mustard!

    Stop Motion by Hundred Eyes

    Tuesday, February 16, 2010

    Just thought I'd share this super cute stop motion with you. It's by a student who had to do a commercial for a brand, so he chose Urban Outfitters. Definitely captures UO's quirky, whimsical style.
    Music is "Emo Phillips" by Arrah & The Ferns.

    I can't find Lula anywhere where I live-I think issue 9 is all sold out now, so oh well. I saw it once on a trip, but I didn't buy it. I wish I did, now considering some back issues sell for over $200 on eBay, like this issue.

    Hi everyone it's Aubrey!

    Some photos I took while walking Aubrey.

    Someone asked how Aubrey was doing about a week ago, so I figured I'd do an update.

    I bought a velvety throw (it's sooo soft!) for my bed, but she gets way more use out of it than I do! She's actually sleeping on it right now! At least it keeps her out of trouble. Ex: "Instead of opening cabinets and taking food out of them, maybe I'll just take a nap on the throw."

    I took this photo while out one day hiking a few months ago and it temporarily got forgotten among the myriads of photos I have stored on my computer. But I rediscovered it yesterday. I'm going to put this is my photography shop, which I am excited to announce will be open for business this Monday!
