Week 4/52 – Joy

This weeks theme was amazing for me! There are so many things I find joy in, that bring me joy and that I find joyful so I had hundreds of ideas floating inside my head. That unfortunately also meant that only one of these ideas could come to life (at least for this weeks photo). I had a hard time narrowing down what exactly I wanted to do with this theme because I found that there were endless possibilities! Ultimately I had to go with my first intuition and idea and photograph my wonderful dog, Nicky. He is the most caring, kind and sweet dog you will ever meet. And quite frankly I think he is also the cutest, but I might be biased… 😉

Without further ado here is the caption and photo for week 4 of my little Project 52!

Caption: You are the most amazing dog, and I couldn’t ask for a better family member than you. I’m so lucky I get to call you mine, and that I get to see you each and every day. I love when we go for walks together and you want to smell everything. You can do so many tricks like sit, lie down, shake hands and play dead – I think that’s pretty good for such a small dog like you! I’ve been trying to teach you more languages (because i’m a language nerd), and when we are getting ready to take a walk, I will ask you in both German and English if you would like to go for a walk, and you either respond with this cute head tilt like you do below or with nothing at all. We’re still working on it, and you’re definitely getting better, but so far only Danish is what you will respond to and can understand. You bring me so much joy and when I come home, even if I have just been gone for 5 minutes, your face lights up in joy and happiness, and you wag your tail like crazy. I can’t stop smiling whenever I look at you and your sweet and cute little wrinkly face. When you tilt your head like you do in the photo it melts my heart. You are the best dog a girl could ask for, and I love you to pieces! ❤

Happy Wednesday, friends! x



Week 3/52 – Inside

Here we are! Already at week 3 of this project! It’s a little crazy that almost 3 weeks of the new year has already passed. I can’t really wrap my mind around it. This week was great. I met up with some friends from uni, and we had a great time catching up and talking about everything under the sun. It was great to get my mind a little off the exam and have breakfast out. It was absolutely delicious! Although we did discuss the exam it made me a bit more calm about it all. I have been (and still am) extremely nervous about this exam, and I don’t know exactly why it is so much different with this particular exam. Usually I’m nervous (of course), but never so long before it takes place and never this much. it’s as if I just can’t calm myself down and assure myself that I will be fine. i’m definitely still working on this, but it’s going better for now.

And now on to the photo of the week! This week the theme was “inside”. Caption: “As I look out my window from inside I study the raindrops and the light from the streetlights that make the raindrops sparkle like little diamonds. It makes me reflect on so many things going on in my life right now, and it calms my mind and spirit.”

Happy Thursday! x

Week 2/52 – Imperfection

This week I was slow to take my photo. I wasn’t even sure I was going to be able to take a photo despite my commitment from last week. This week has been rough, but I know better times are ahead – I just have to look a bit further to find them. So without further ado here is my photo for week 2 with the theme “imperfection”. And that theme perfectly describes how this week was – totally and completely imperfect, but it taught me so much about myself, my life and who I can count on when I really need it.

The caption for this weeks photo: “This photo is the essence of imperfection. The person who took it is imperfect (me – I’m not perfect and will never claim to be. I go through struggles and good times, and I don’t have a perfect life despite what anyone may or may not think), the photo itself is imperfect (the focus is off, the photo was very noisy before I edited it, the exposure is not perfect, the colours are not what I originally wanted, the composition is not after “the book” – I think you get what I mean), the subject of the photo is imperfect (the flower was fading and turning brown). But you know what? It doesn’t matter. Imperfection is everywhere. Nobody/nothing is perfect and we have to accept that it is totally okay.”

Week 2/52 - Imperfection

Happy weekend, friends! Hope it is a beautiful one for you!
