I’ve been a poor blogger again. And I’ve been crazy busy, which is not new either. One day, after having spent quite a few hours desperately trying to grasp the concept of type 2 nucleofilic substitution (aka some mind boggling chemistry shit), I wondered what could clear out the cluttered recesses of my mind.
Oh, photography! I’ll just take my tripod and take some beautifully crisp and clear evening shots by the beach…. Waaaaiiiiit. How’s crisp and clear gonna relate to me when I’m more coarse and chaotic?
With that, I ditched the whole serenity theme, and the tripod, and went all out with some really abstract light graffiti photography. A great way to unwind!
Once again, no photoshop or anything the likes of used. Just added the signature with Paintbrush.

I wish I had more time to take photographs. I wish I had more time to cook. I wish I had more time to do the things I love. You guys ever feel like you don’t do anything fun anymore? I’ve been feeling like that for a while now. I mean I’ve been studying like crazy, thinking I just have to do this now so I can have fun later. It motivated me first, but not anymore. I mean what if I have a huge tumor stuck to my brain right now and I end up dying thinking I’ll have fun later. Unlikely as it may be it’s a possibility.
I guess the big take away from all this melancholy is that you really should not put off being happy. Sure, there are tedious things one has to keep doing, but you have to make sure you’re embracing life while you do them. The sun will set every night, but tonight may be the last time you’ll see it happen.
Here are some pictures of a sunset I saw

I have been, and will be, insanely busy with my university studies. I’m currently taking chemistry, biochemistry, ecotoxicology, soil science, crop science and our mandatory course in Swedish, the last one maybe being the worst one of all. So obviously I’ve had little time for photography and little time to write this blog (in fact, I should be doing some online assignment right now).
I did take an hour of yesterday to go take a few photographs, though. There were a few I liked, but the ones I liked the most were the simplest ones. Simple is often times beautiful I guess C: So to keep it simple, here are the pics.

Everyone here knows about my passion for photography. Many of you also know about my passion for daydreaming. But what most of you probably don’t know about, is my passion for singing. I have had this passion for a long time, but it has not been that visible in this blog, (and I am keeping it that way, fear not). Now I have finally decided to come out of the bathtub and start keeping tabs of my singing via blogging. This is why I have started a new blog MyMelodyRealities. I am not looking to become the next “insert-pop-star-who-randomly-springed-to-easy-fame”. But I would like to hear honest, not-mean opinions, critique and encouragement, which ever you feel I need.
And here’s a pic of my new goat friend, just for fun :D

I am trying to grow some venus flytraps right now, since I absolutely love carnivorous plants. I bought a miniature greenhouse and decorated it appropriately, but so far the germination has been poor. Never mind, I spray them with water regularly to keep the humidity high. So one evening while I was doing this, I noticed that the droplets on the greenhouses’s walls with the setting sun hitting them looked quite photogenic. That’s my kind of greenhouse effect! C:
I sure hope the seeds will wake up soon. At least I know it’s not a question of lack of care.

It’s really becoming clear, that Autumn is coming. The mornings are crisp, the yellow-green ratio in the front yard birch is rapidly changing, and we had a hands-on course on fungi (mushrooms that is) at the university. Here are a few “Autumny” pictures I have taken C:
I found this weathered feather on the water bank and decided to prop him up so he could see the sunset : 3
The wind was rough and so were the waves.
This poor buddy was clinging to one of the rocks for dear life. I have no idea about the species :c
I walked to the lake through a forest and discovered this little blueberry leaf blushing. Perhaps he saw a cute lingonberry nearby? :D
I really can’t decide how I feel about Autumn. There’s parts of it I like and parts that I don’t. Good thing it comes even though I’m undecided. Do you like Autumn?

So, I was feeding some ducks with bread the other day…
They were jolly fellows, and seemed utterly fearless too :D Only a few chunks of bread later they were fully willing to take the pieces right of my fingertips.
After the three had eaten half a loaf of bread, they calmly retreated to a nice afternoon nap.
They were really cute, but the more interesting part came after this. A crow had been patiently observing everything from a near by tree.
I threw a few chunks of bread in hopes of him coming to me for it as the ducks had, but he was far less tame than they had been. Turned out he was far more clever too. He waited patiently for the right moment, which appeared, when I moved further a way from the bread crumblings and to an angle where my bike was between them and me.
He stuffed his beak full of the bread chunks, using a nearby rock to aid the process.
And with that, he majestically walked of to the bushes somewhere to feast in privacy.
I was left in awe by the beauty and intelligence of these underrated birds.
