HEEELLOOO! What's happened here? No words. No way to comment*. Just a drip-drip of pictures… Welcome to series 1 of 'Lying Low, How to Practise the Art of Winter Hibernation'… We moved, we scrubbed and painted, we collected food, huddled ourselves into blankets and survived on watching 'Girls' and reading 'Game of Thrones'**. When food supplies get low, the next Lidl is just a bicycle ride away (and allows to practise some Germanness: Do not talk to or smile at anyone, expect avocados to be the most expensive item in the shop, pack your things as quick as lightning - or face the contempt of fellow shoppers - and do a little dance at the exit because you can fill your fridge for 10 Euros).And fashion? Knee-deep snow, hiding from the world and living in the same 2 pairs of trousers and 1 pair of boots the last few months has not been too conducive to leading a 'style blog'… but hey, spring must be coming. Some time, some day.
Are you feeling the winter blues? Had enough of it, too? (Australia and California, just send some sunshine, will you?)… And if you are a blogger how do you deal with your 'spam comment problem' (word verification)? ♥ ♥ ♥
*These days there are 20 spam comments for every real contribution in my inbox. Turning off the comment function has solved the problem – but is making communication a bit one-sided…
**Fantasy? Or did George R.R. Martin know something about climate change we didn’t?!
First spring arrived and I got all excited about the possibilities of outdoor life. Then winter returned and made me crawl back inside to the task of sorting out decades of old photos… where I found this in some old box, and it seemed fitting to my state of mind. Then I decided to start a ’Vintage’ section from times when life often felt more existentialist and photography was all analog and came with long nights of bathing in toxic devoloping solutions. Aah, the fun! ♥
