Sometimes when you’ve lived in a place your whole life or for a really long time, you seem to forget to really look around you. In one way you know your hometown like the inside of your pocket but in another sense maybe you are missing out on a lot of the details and spaces that you’re just passing by?
I missed all sorts of details and everyday-beauty before I started to take notice. Starting to photograph a lot again has been a good way for me to really see my environments and I’m in love with the magic that surrounds us in everyday life!
So if maybe you too have been missing out – take a look around you, can you find things, places or spaces you’ve never noticed before? Or maybe see them with a different context so that it might turn into something intriguing? Meanwhile I will share some bits and pieces of my hometown. 😉 All pictures are edited in picnik.
And close to that beautiful old building stands this one. A big yellow square building, not very pretty or even interesting in itself. But on one side they have these huge billboards and the other day I found that someone had scribbled underneath them. Not ordinary graffiti. It said: I don’t even know if I think Greenpeace are that important. Just like that and I didn’t know whether to be amused or upset. It could be meant as sarcasm and it could be just a blatant statement.
