Nikki and Ian went home on sunday, which made the atmosphere a bit… deflated. It’s not nice when something you’ve waited for a long time has suddenly passed you by. Oh well, at least the weather has been trying it’s best to cheer us up. The world is finally starting to look green. Yesterday was such a beautiful day, and *so* hot. We went to stroll around Helsinki and sat in the sun on Esplanade. Perfect end to a holiday really. Although I wouldn’t mind staying on hols for the whole of the summer actually… oh well.
I have a load of work to catch up with at the moment, but there are ideas for photographs brewing at the back of my mind. I hope to shoot Mirka soon, perhaps as early as next weekend(?). And it looks like I’m shooting Jenni again some time at the end of this month. I have some ideas for her gorgeous hair. I’m also hoping to come up with some more conceptual work, even if at the moment I’m quite enjoying the ‘pretty picture’ phase I’m in. Oh and when I finally get to see Johanna’s baby… I don’t think there will be anything stopping me and my camera. 🙂
I received my (massive) Mario Testino Portraits, which I ordered, and it is very gorgeous.
Also got Cecil Beaton’s Portraits, which is full of beautiful pictures, but I’ll let it inspire me more when I’m back in a B&W; mood again… Unfortunately I’ve now fallen into the trap of absolutely loving having big photography books to look at when ever I feel like it and now I’m lusting after Bettina Rheims’s More Trouble… even bigger than the Testino one and costs about 100 euros… somebody stop me. Every picture in it is just so gorgeous from start to end though… *sigh*
Yummy looking films.
I’ve had this yummy film list up on DA before. Might as well put it up here as well and see if anyone would come up with more suggestions.
A few weeks ago I finally got around watching Kieslowski’s Three Colours trilogy (I know it’s a shame I hadn’t seen them before ok) and fell in love with Blue. Every inch of film was so meticulously composed and the imagery supported the mood of the film superbly. So that’s my recent addition to the list.
Also, The Cell was on TV the other night and the ‘inside the brain’ scenes were as spectacular as ever. Who needs a plot when there’s so much to look at. 😀
So, anyone seen any other yummy films lately?
The Lord of the Rings (whole trilogy)
Romeo + Juliet
Les Parapluies de Cherbourg
Trois couleurs: Bleu
