Home Sweet Home..

Hey there!

I was flicking through my photos today and decided to dedicate a post to my hometown/surroundings.

Since I live right next to a forest I often go there for a walk.

The city Kiel is located at the Baltic Sea which connects me to the seaside. I often go to the beach with my friends, since it's only a few minutes away from where I live.




Although Kiel isn't very big, I enjoy living here. Especially around summer.

Urban exploring..

Hey there!

Yesterday my friends and I went exploring in our city in search for a great place to shoot photos for a photography contest.



Eventually we discovered an old factory building. It is completely abandoned which is a reason for graffiti artists to leave their marks behind.




It is really amazing to just stand in the big hall and look at the paintings. The danger of collapse is naturally given but didn't stop us from entering the building.


Trees aren't spared the paint
Some probably say that graffiti is terrible vandalism but I reckon it prevents the loneliness of certain places. If there wasn't any street art at this factory building it would seem even scarier and pointless not to get rid of it.

Peace

Waste

Once you return the place will probably have changed since the paintings are being over-sprayed.




Around my city street art isn't often found in random places and sprayers mostly just leave their symbols everywhere. That's why I was so surprised by this place since it's rather rare around here or impossible to find.

If you liked this post please comment down below and tell me what you think about graffiti!

How to make a salad..

Hey there!

Today I visited my dear friend KA to spend the afternoon with her. She has got a fashion blog, so check her out as well if you like! ( http://anna-karenita.blogspot.de )
We worked on our art project and made a lovely salad.
Since my art project includes taking photographs of food from this region, we had all the ingredients to prepare one.

We used:

~ butterhead lettuce
~ beet root
~ radicchio
~ carrot
~ tomato
~ radish
~ lemon oil
~ salt + pepper
~ white balsamic vinegar
~ pinch of sugar



I mostly took macro shots of the ingredients, since I didn't want to shoot photographs which can be found in every ordinary food magazine.

















And here's the final product.





If you have any recommendations or add-ons, please comment below and let me know ;)


Thank you for reading!

Cozy days..

Hey there!

Since Christmas is around the corner it just seems to be the right thing to start baking cookies and getting into a christmassy mood.




A light in the darkness


In Germany the temperature is going down really fast so everyone tries to make it as hyggelig (danish for cozy, familiar, positive atmosphere) as possible in their homes. 



Every year my family and I bake heaps of different little cookies which show off our German culinary culture. Very important is also the Advent wreath which we compose differently each year.






Christmas candle (danish: kalenderlys)


As my family is originally from Denmark we love to mix up the two cultures which do have many similarities. So we basically get the best of both cultures in one festivity.

That's it for now. Enjoy your Christmas Season!
