Sentiments of Secret Songs and Sangria

That summer afternoon at the beginning of August was full of magic. Days were filled with sweet sticky heat refreshed by the breeze of sea. These were the last days of my freedom, last summer before the commitment to the adult life. I was exhausted with the travels and overwhelmed with the confusion that my life is about to change in a way I never experienced before. We spent lazy days walking around the woods, climbing the rocks of old capital of Finland, Turku, reading books, soaking our feet in the soft waves of the Baltic sea. Breathing in the stillness of the town. We cried, we laughed, somewhere under­neath our skins we felt that these are the last days of freedom like this and things are going to change forever.

That was the afternoon of secrets, songs and sangria. Sentiments and sadness take over me thinking how these days are behind me and in the speed of the days now the words of friendship do not get exchanged enough anymore.

At The Dawn of The Photography Adventures

IMG_6365I have been coming up with hundreds of excuses to postpone starting a blog. Being a perfectionist can be a drag sometimes. It is a wonderful feature of character to keep you improving your work but an extremely intimidating one when you want to make a first step. I was always telling myself that I would like to start a quality blog and for that I need to keep practicing writing but with a schedule lacking an hour for a calm dinner I was always struggling with finding more time to sit down and and write even one of the entire list of ideas for texts I have.

After an engineering degree I have stopped writing on a daily basis and lost my flow. I have thousands of thoughts to share, but I was scared to kick the blog machine before I have at least a few posts aligned. Good posts that is.

I have been waiting for too long, postponing to share my work with you until I am ready, while I was never becoming ready. I realized that I am missing the point. 'Photography and Other Miracles' was first and foremost supposed to be a platform for sharing magical photography and only secondly the rest of the miracles. Let the perfectionism drive me and my blogging becomes better with time. However every journey begins with a single step.

The first collection of photos I will share with you is a memory of a cool spring morning in Islington district, London with my friend Marta, a seasoned lifestyle blogger and author of Riennahera. Since my pen is not as sharp as her and I feel my photos speak louder than my words, I am leaving you with the visual medium.
