Night time

a night so calm 2

a calm night

Shots taken two nights ago while walking home from the beach. Here in the summertime we have daylight 24 seven, so I wanted to spice up these shots with some deep purple shadows instead of the sepia tone that I started off with.

Nights like these I feel you near..

Dream with me



Flowersshots taken earlier tonight down by the lake.

I sat here for the longest of time, dreaming about better days while watching the waves crashing against the sandy shore. I thought about what you said the other night and I can’t help but dream.

I ache, I burn and all for you.

Have you've got the time?


Still it stands at exactly 21 minutes to ten. Notice the strange reflection in the right window.

It’s timeless.



A swan, rising from the wet grass, headed for eternity. Forever free.

A shot taken a couple of nights ago while visiting a nearby cabin in the woods. I like the way the smoke swirls around the soft and silky yellow. Hope you like it.

  2. cream cheese
  3. cest of a half a lemon + some lemon juice
  4. chopped and spicy ruccola salad
  5. wasabi
  6. chopped cucumber
  7. sliced avocado
  8. soya sauce
  9. sesamy seeds

You mix the cream cheese together with the chopped ruccola, lemon juice/cest and wasabi. Spread it on to the thin sliced salmon, then place some small cucumber or avocado sticks on top and then roll them up! The rolls you sprinkle with sesamy seeds! DONE DONE and DONE! You can dip the rolls in some soya sauce and eat with your favourite sticks!

Some old crayons found in my grandmother’s basement. I remember using these as a child, painting the world on old envelopes. Those were the days…

What lies beneath


A lonely seashell resting beneath the surface, basking in the sun…

Eye in the sky

Something old, something blue

I stumbeled upon a white feather the other day while exploring the woods. Next it I found an old coffeetin, a very common one that used to exist in the stores when I was a little girl. If am not mistaken this very coffee started to sell in the late 1960's. Strange that a tin like this have been laying around the forest for so long. It was the feather that caught my eye though, it's innocent hue made me think of freedom.

Tick tack

Time. I wish I had more. The days rush by and I barely have time to breathe. Let's press pause please. Let's be still for a while.

What do this shot awaken inside of you? Please share.

Glimpse of summer

I walked past a little bee today sitting on top of a branch. The sun was shining and the air was hot. I gave him a little wink and then continued on my stroll. I love days such as these.

Web of dreams

A spiderweb softly spun. I thought of You. Your jagged brow, your pinescented sleeves and kind eyes. I get lost in these dreamwebs when you are near but I really don't mind.

I like it here.

Walnuts and a sunny afternoon

Fresh walnuts lying in the afternoon sun.

Having recovered from the bad clams I still feel ill, this time in my soul. I am so tired, needing rest, needing calm and stillness. I need to put my camera aside for a while and focus on other things.

This blog will never disappear but my daily posting will for a while now. The summer is coming and I feel the need to explore it. I have spent far to many hours in front of this screen you see.

If you want to contact me you can leave a comment here or send me an email at mistyafternoon@live.se

See you soon!

Wath out for the clams

Not quite steady

I long, very much in fact. Yet I am experiencing some unsteadyness, like the ground shall begin to crack beneath my feet any minute and swallow me whole.
What a joy it would be to disappear, if only for a day or two, only to return with renewed faith and spirituality.
Maybe I should go.

Outdoor portrait

The world of imagination

Me and friend painted a canvas yesterday and I have to tell you that things like this really stir the deep waters of my soul. We selected the theme summer and then started creating. Clouds that also were deep waters, sunflowers, birds and fantasy fishes, we gave them all life in our little painting.
I allowed mysef to get completely lost in the world of sticky colors and imagination.

Two lovely little dogs <3

Early morning play

I watch as the seagrass sway in the wind, wanting to capture their early morning play I start my camera. I love days such as these, when you can do nothing but just rest, listening o birds and allow your head to soar in midair. If you close your eyes you can sense it too, the smell of summer.

It's coming.

Garden after rain

The rosebushes after a day of rain. Beautiful, still, magnificent. The waterdrops hangs like uncut diamonds on each branch. It makes me dream.

onsdag 6 maj 2009


Let me introduce Shakira, a beautiful Alaskan Husky/Malamute. I had the great luck while visiting my good friend Elisabeth and her boyfriend to capture this beauty.

Photographing animals is never easy, mostly beacause they are never really still. This worked wonders though!

A sweeter side of life

We all need a good cake once in a while to cheer us up and yesterday I fell for this baby; a raspberry-jam filled cupcake with some icing. I only ate half of it though... the rest of it I gave away!
Sorry for the blurr in the first shot!


Me and friend took the cat out for an evening stroll in the woods last night. This is an indoor cat so imagine the excitement she felt as the explored the trails... :0) She thought it was purrrrfect..!

Hope you enjoy.
I really need to get myself a pair of wellies for today I wet my feet during one of my expiditions..

You're to blame

I am experiencing a great inner calm at the moment, no stress, no pain, no nothing, just peace. This is a wonderful and extraordinary feeling and I blame it all on spring.

Let's enjoy life

Dear friends!

The spring is really here and I enjoy each day to the fullest. I got no pic for you today but don't despair for more shots will come!

The weather is so hot now that if I wanted to I could take my breakfast out on the porch. I love this time of year.

BE safe and enjoy life today, I will :0)

Portrait of self

Selfportrait taken out in the woods. I love the way the sun casts sleepy shadows on my face as I rest. What do you think?
