Taking pictures isn’t just about clicking the shutter of the camera to me, obviously. It’s also bringing back old memories. And creates new ones. This picture will always remind me of the beautiful building behind me, casting its shadow on the building I took the picture of. I decided not to take a picture of that particular building, as I liked to remember it this way. As a shadow on another building. That’s how my existence feels sometimes, more and more lately. I need to do something about it. Is this a self portrait? Maybe, now that I think about it.
When I took this picture, I just took up my camera and clicked while thinking Am I not going to put more effort into this picture? No, I just want to post it on my blog and show Leipzig as it is at this moment.
This picture comes from thinking of Liivia’s blog and amazing pictures. Her blog is 1 of 4 blogs I follow these days, do you guys have any suggestions of blogs I could be interested in?
This street brought me back to Haga in Gothenburg. In my memory it looks like this, smaller though, on the side streets from the main street, when you walk towards Skansberget (can you believe I lived in Gothenburg for 12 years and haven’t been back since I moved, over 7 years ago?!). Those of you who know this area maybe see what I mean. The buildings in Leipzig are so heart achingly beautiful, can’t wait to go back when it’s less cold (it hasn’t been this cold here for 100 years) and discover more neighbourhoods and parks.
Stay warm, friends!
I’m procrastinating right now – today is the day when I have to do bookkeeping that I neglected when I was sick and I might have to investigate further what’s wrong with my blog, it’s been having a lot of downtime and taking up too much space on the servers of my web host and emailing with them doesn’t make me any wiser since I don’t speak programmer language and get exhausted reading FAQ’s about these things. But I’m a stubborn person, so hopefully it’ll work out.
Also, I write more here these days, do you like it or did you prefer when I was posting pictures mostly?
