Throwback Thursday

Today I’m sharing an old photo I took when I lived in the Netherlands. It’s of a windmill – of course (they’re famous for their windmills, right?). Back then I was taking a fair amount of black & white photos, and I was taking some for a friend’s wedding. (Don’t worry, she had a real photographer too!) We were at this windmill for some photos, and I decided to take one of the windmill itself as well, and to this day I think it’s one of the best photos I’ve taken.

Throwback Thursday

I moved to the Netherlands when one of my brothers was only two years old, and so whenever I was visiting Sweden he absolutely had to fall asleep in my lap. Any other time he went to his own bed fine, but if I was home for a visit – Em’s lap, or nothing!

He’s 17 now, and might die if I showed him this photo. I think that means I should show it to him, doesn’t it?

Throwback Thursday

This photo always makes me a bit teary-eyed. It’s of Tamlin again (from last week’s photo), taken when we were out for a walk in the forest. (You can see my aunt’s other dog in the background.) The reason it makes me sad is because it reminds me of him being gone – the way the photo makes it look like he’s walking away, and looking back at the camera. Gets me every time.

A photo of me together with my aunt’s dog Tamlin taken a few years back. He sadly passed away a few years ago, and this is one of the few photos I have with me and him in it. Since moving back to Sweden I’ve helped my aunt out a fair bit taking care of her dogs whenever she’s working (she works off-shore so will be gone for a couple of weeks at a time), so always felt fairly close to them.

Throwback Thursday

When I was 17 my aunt took me to New York City for a weekend away. It was really cool, and also the first time in my life that I went on an airplane. I remember being very nervous. I’d love to go back to NYC at some point as an adult, since I suspect there are some parts of the city you just don’t appreciate in the same way as a teenager.

Me on my very first flight. You can't tell, but I'm terrified.
