Blondes and bonds

Life has been rather busy as of late. We both started working again. So as you all know work sort of takes over ones life rather quickly if you let it. We all need to do it however and that’s why we can take pleasure in taking photographs, reading a good book or watching a film. Just for that escape from reality. After a long week, which hasn’t even ended yet, I was ecstatic when I received a phone call saying my film has been developed and I could go in to the workshop ┬áto collect it!

I hope these pictures bring you as much happiness as they did for me when I first looked at them.

Ancient disposable

Holidays always call for some spring cleaning. Well that is exactly what I found myself doing. Luckily it was quite rewarding as I found a old undeveloped disposable camera from 2005. I immediately went to get it developed and it brought back such wonderful memories.

Feeling Good

Formal dances always sort of seem like a waste of time to me. ┬áBeing a sort of tomboy wearing a dress isn’t my cup of tea. Here are the films that were taken though.

That being said my dress is carefully folded away in my cupboard only to be brought out in dire situations.

Misfits

I had this film developed a few days ago. The pictures didn’t exactly goes as planned but nonetheless some were worth the wait. I also completely forgot about half the films I had on the roll. It is always quite a surprise when you get them back then.

Burn baby burn

Initially I decided I didn’t want to go to AfrikaBurn this year. I thought to myself I want to forget what it feels like and that way when I go next year it will feel as though I am experiencing it again for the first time.

The closer it gets to the Burn the more I regret that decision. AfrikaBurn is definitely one of the best events I have attended. Although I have only been twice it envelops your whole being. Being able to experience that utter freedom. Not only in the artworks and the music but the environment.

I would wake up in the mornings and stroll over to the coffee “shop” where you could help yourself to, free of charge, coffee and rusks. Most people gathered there in the mornings and shared their stories of their adventurous evening.

I am definitely going to miss staring up at the night sky with the slow murmur of voices passing theme camps. I am going to miss the sun setting and casting its colours on the artworks. The list, naturally, carries on but I will end it here.

Let’s allow the reminiscing to continue but rather through these pictures I took last year.
