“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” ― Ansel Adams
So you decided to open the “About” page… I am flattered…
What can I tell you about this site and myself?
Well, I’ve always been told that when you start a blog or a site it should always have a clear theme or message. This site doesn’t. I don’t know what the theme is… it is everything… and nothing at the same time. There is photography, and my thoughts on things and some tutorials on photo editing that I think would interested someone… but mostly it’s just to show some things that I find interesting or that caught my eye or got stuck in my brain.
When it comes to who I am…
I am a 30+ girl, living in Göteborg on the West coast of Sweden. There are dozens of things that interest me, however there are very few I stick with. Those few that I consider my favorites are photography, my flowers, my work and my family, not necessarily in that order. Photography has been a thing for me since I was a child. I like it, but in no way am I an expert or consider myself being good at it, but I try to learn new things every day.
I am not one of those crazies running around with camera every day and everywhere they go, although I have to admit that I have gathered a fair share of photo gear, like lenses, tripods, umbrellas, etc. I think it’s fun, but I am a happy amateur in the field and do not really care which lens goes for which shot.
I have an opinion on any and every subject, often not a conventional one, but I have it and I express it, appropriate or not. I am still in the process of “working on myself” when it comes to filtering my opinions, and I get better at it everyday, however not without an occasional slip.
I named the site “In Words and In Photos…”because this is how I express myself. Sometimes I see something that just takes my breath and I try to capture it in photo, but at times it’s not enough, and this is where the words come in. It can be the other way around as well.
So if you came to here, you have managed to get through all the “rumblings of a lunatic” that constitute my “About” page… I am impressed!
If you feel adventurous, let me know what you think. I promise, I will always respond!
