Lost In Translation

Aiming to find more places to be lost in; more places to come home to

About photography lately

Kategori: Inspiration

Been doing some spontaneous photoshooting involving wonderful people in my life that deserves to be showed to someone. I discovered a love for smoke and light, something I\d like to recreate and work with on its own and, unlike it is here, just a coincidence while we were preparing to go outside and shoot. Anyway, the result of this mysterious smoke I'm talking so fondly about turned out to be pretty amazing, especially when working with such a crazy cute model like Hanna. Also nice of her to participate. What more? Oh, Nina's been lending me her AWESOME lens that has an aperture down to F 1.8 - which is extremely low compared to my lowest 4. something. So I've been enjoying using that lately. Here follow the pictures.
Why so beautiful?
And lastely one of me taken by Nina during our Baileys-milkshake evening. It was nice and they were delicious.
So one cooking-disaster made way for some quite interesting pictures. Hope they're enjoyable / xx Becka

So, I've been thinking (oops! probably a bad move there already), how I've always tried to avoid falling into what I like to think as the "blah"-trap of blogging. You know, where you pressure yourself into posting and constantly writing something that your actual capacity to write something just minituarizes (yes it is a word). So one thing leads to the other and you've ended up writing the most mundane, vague things and only posting pictures of your local coffee-shop frappucino in an attempt to somehow keep your blog alive. And yes, I myself have fallen victim to the blah-trap many times over, not realising that I'm stuck in this rut of blogging. It's not so much writers' block as it is you losing perhaps the personality and goal of your blog all at once. At least that's how its felt for me. For me, the solution was to 1. Start writing in a language I'm more comfortable with (If it's escaped your attention: English). 2. Thinking of this blog as a creative outlet for myself rather than something that others are dependent on. With these two steps I feel that at least for me, this blog has developed some sort of purpose and found a valid place in my day-to-day life. 
Anyway, these are just random thoughts that maybe could be of help to someone feeling like they've been blah- trapped. 
PS. I DO still enjoy posting pictures of frappucinos.
Like so.

Lost in Translation

Kategori: Inspiration

Beware, dear one single reader of this blog. For today will mark a very special day in the history of this tiny space in the cyberworld. As you might notice, the words appearing in front of you are no longer in Swedish. Hopefully you'll also notice and understand that they have been replaced to English. I do so wish this won't be all too confusing. Or that you'll be lost. This is however, a quite fitting change, ajoining the new name and aim of this blog. 
The origin of 'Lost In Translation', began - not so surprisingly - with my watching the movie Lost In Translation (by Sofia Coppola), in late 2011. This wasn't too long ago, but it was long enough ago to have made that very phrase important to me. Besides completely falling in love with the motion picture, I was surprised to realise it had made a larger impact on me than any other film. The reason being, that I simply felt it could be applied to many parts of my life and my experiences. I've had many encounters with being lost in translation. The first was moving to another country with a different language, at the age of eight. I was lost, not knowing how to speak the language or understand the culture (as is the ongoing theme in the movie). Then again, seven years later I'd moved to a foreign country once more. I wasn't as lost as I was the first time though, in fact this move I was able to appreciate. I fell in love with the country (Australia), its people and the life I lived there, just as I eventually had the first time around when I moved to England. 
The point is, I have been lost in translation for far longer than this blog might have made apparent, and it's time to make it so. Because in all of the places I've been lost, I've later found something much more important: a home. And now I can with great love and ease say that I have many places to call home. My wish is for the number to only ever grow. I love travelling, I love going to many, exotic places. Not because I find it hard to stick around in one place; quite the opposite! 
And later this year I am making another big move, searching for another place to call home. This time on my own (but with two very close friends). It's time this blog be the book to gather all old and new chapters in my travel diary. I really can't wait to be lost, yet again, in translation. Can you?
// ps. All of the above also explains why I am now writing in English.
See you later, alligator (in a while crocodile)

PPS. This is the place I'm moving to!!!

Hejsan svejsan allesammans, idag är det fredag och ännu en fri-dag innan skolans sista vecka börjar (o så såklart helgen emellan). Dagen har inte varit produktiv, det erkänner jag, men glass har ätits och pizza har tappats och stulits av fåglar så en händelserik dag har det i alla fall varit. För att fylla på lite med de inläggen jag har tid med under dessa dagar innan en 8-veckor lång frihet börjar så vill jag presentera två böcker som jag faktsikt tror kan vara av intresse för alla som faktiskt gillar att även läsa om mode.
Den första bilden visar boken Style Feed som av toppbloggerskan Susie Lau (eller Susie Bubble: http://www.stylebubble.co.uk/) sammanfattar världens mest inflytesrika och genombrytande modebloggar sedan bloggandets början. En riktig källa för bra inspiration kan jag säga med flera personer inom just denna vida modevärld som jag tycker är värda att ta en titt på.
Den andra boken, The TeenVogue Handbook, är utgiven av modetidningsjätten Teen Vogue (say whaaat) och berättar väldigt kärleksfullt om inte lite naivt ibland hur man ska/kan/kanske inte borde ge sig in i utan att tänka på det - integrera sig i modebranschen huruvida detta innebär som modell, designer m.m. Värd att läsa, jag lovar, den är inte bara här för att jag inte hade något annat att skriva om.
Detta inlägg var faktiskt inte menat att vara en liten crappy bokrecension i promise men så blev det! Jag har faktiskt två upplagor av båda böckerna så om man kan tänka sig att köpa de så kan man väl maila mig på rebeckaC96@gmail.com
