Highlights of My Week



Mornings with tea and sunshine




Having the wooden Cubebot as my muse in the daily photos

Returning in my daydreams to the landscapes with pine cones and the sounds of a woodpecker




Finding pretty linen to the kitchen from the flea market nearby

Getting ready to sew something pretty to Easter

Admiring the reflections of the sunlight on dishes & chopsticks




Being inspired by Creative Self Portrait Photography-course by Lindsay Crandall 
at Skillshare

  1. Kiitos Nina ja ihanaa viikonloppua sinnekkin. Ihania tunnelmapala kuvia täälläkin ja aurinko paistelee. Hauskaa selfportrait kurssia, hyvin vaikea laji (ainakin mulle).

  2. Wonderful highlights and I am totally inspired by your self portrait! BTW, I would love if you could share your baked blueberry banana oatmeal recipes! Maybe it is on the blog somewhere but I could only find the photo. :) Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thank you Linda ~ this cubebot was a random find in a toy boutique ... The idea of using it one month in "photo a day"- project did hit me as soon as I saw it :)
      Thank you for stopping by & sunshine to your weekend!

  4. I love this "highlights from my week" blog post idea. I was just thinking yesterday about starting something similar on my blog. I did a random pictures from my week post on Facebook, but definitely want to do this next week. A wonderful way to capture life, like a journal, but better. Love that creative self-portrait photography. Stopping by from SITS!

    1. Hi Lori,
      Thank you for stopping by and leaving a note! "Photo journalizing" is a fun way of keeping a diary - I jot a few lines down on my CollectPhotoApp each day, but often times a"a picture tells thousand words" :) I look forward of seeing your pictures from your week!

  6. Hello Nina, Your little friend is a good guide to the happenings of your week. The first shot of the stencil and the shadow has such mystery. I'm really enjoying your creative self-portraits. I especially like how you linked the yellow flowers in two of the portraits.

    1. Hi Barb,
      The first shot kind of a "day dream" ... where I combine two photos - layering them and making it look like a bit mysterious - a photo from a forest, and another with a pine cone and Cubebot from the coffee table.
      It was fun to try and make the self portraits - and the yellow flower was my symbol of grasping the awaiting-for-the -spring feeling :)

The course is really worth checking out - I look forward of seeing your self portraits (I like the ones from last summer you've posted on Instagram - especially where the sun is shining through your hair :)

  15. That first photo is my favorite. All the shadows and details and back light are outstanding. It is getting too hot here for hot coffee and tea even in the mornings, but iced coffee and tea is good.

  16. Hi Nina! Your self portraiture images as so simple and beautiful. I took a self portraiture class a while back and haven't taken a 'selfie' in a while. You have inspired me to think about it again. I love your first shot too. :)
