faces of european journalism

the 1st day at the FEJS congress for young journalists.

panel debates, new media, multiculturality, copters, interaction, innovation
... and tons of questions, but what else could you expect from 100 journalists ;)

cologne's clichés

the phone camera is just perfect for capturing clichés.

berlin by bike

climbing on a bike messenger.

around his corner i saw this cosy italian restaurant.

my host janccu outside my guide ugi's home in hip kreuzberg

i spotted skeletons in the windows. my fetisch.

love the architectural variety in berlin. 

jungle homes and roof chilling.

turquoise sun rays

i wouldn't mind having my entire spring wardrobe from cos.
here are some window mannequins showing the sleek fashion of this season.

next door there is another source of inspiration.

shopping gifts made me hungry.

i turned tölö into asia with spicy
quorn-buckweat noodle wok 

... and continued across the pacific ocean with a carribean sweet potato-banana stew. 

attn! only the first portions ;)

i am rich

i have known
luna since kindergarden:

maria since school started:

and i just met lilian and we share a lot of interests.

she showed me the café sininen huvila as we walked around tölöviken. i must have been blind to have lived in tölö for 1,5 years without noticing what a great place for a break it is.

feeling rich since i have met so many friends this week that are worth their weight in gold.

sometimes time just ran away and i didn't bother to distort a good moment by looking through the lenses instead of my own eyes. social experiences cannot be reproduced even with the very best camera.

summertime madness

already in april :D

the bridge was full of fishermen and -women.

while i and cami walked around drumsö, some people sunbathed halfnaked. 

by the way, i love my lumia's camera, so handy and fun!

25.04.2014 kl. 21:18

i got up on the wrong foot

and it rained. so my eyes almost felt like raining some tears too.

the sun suddenly came to save my calm weekend in gäddvik.

btw, here you can read my blogging story i swedish (scroll to page 7).

instagram = irritation or inspiration?

i was against instagram ever since it started. to post retro images with light leak effects felt like cheezy cheating. i did the real thing with my plastic film camera diana

but i haven't played with her since i became petitemu. developing films is expensive nowadays and i got thrilled by the speed and easiness of shooting only digital.

my new yellow aquaintance constantly blipped about an awesome app called instagram
fine then. jepardqvist is in the house!

consious cycling.


better than b&j.

am i throwing out an old toy for the new mainstream one?

i hope not.
diana will always be my number 1 and is great company at summer parties for example.

while waiting for my 9-year old kiddoes to arrive to my lecture about refugees in uganda, i felt like becoming small again. luckily i have a new toy to play with.

i have had a fetisch for neon these past grey months, and i don't fell like stopping.

today i will host a studio debate in tv, so jump into the coach and watch me here.

3 (ugly) blondes training for the snorkling tour.

photoshoot on a catamaran.
the model smiled at me - the stupid farang who tried to capture him ;).

we also met some less pleasant creatures.

my aunt got a bad scratch by a cat who probably carried rabies.

and mr snake was visiting the neighbours when i passed by.

i also walked by a yoga class in the nearby studio. 

did neither dare to try thai yoga nor these angry birds sushis.

morning maria

me and maria started at 7 am with "boba" yoga and continued for a calm breakfast at torre's

after school i waited for mom at superdry's sales.

i've always longed for a vest, but how and when do you use ut?
i've got no clue ... my fingers would probably fall off ;)

why so serious?
maybe because the next moment i left my phone for a "sleepover" at a café ...

what a lovely term. i might turn it into my religion?

i had a busy last week, but i am glad that i ran to the train to make it to the last days of don't shoot the messenger at the design museum.

be the producer of your life

stepping on thoughts at the design museum.

my answer is no. photoshop can't fix the world, but it can help to knit the mesh of your life into something beautiful.

my dream room

like a chameleon. the wall changes pattern according to the colour of the light.

12.01.2014 kl. 22:21

soft start

alarm clock ringing at 4:45.
a nice "recovery" after the holidays.

i shoot this for an article that never needed to be written.
cygnaeus was a lovely old school and i felt like becoming a small student again! 
... i might regret it on monday morning ;)

after a short training i almost fell asleep in the shower, but luckily i had a relaxing and delicious evening in front of me. 

my old highschool gang (-mahanta) had a great chat at fafa's.

nice to have the fresh law graduate from england back.

this close friend is studying in the same kingdom, but she returns next week. our forth "member" flew already to london on sunday.

yes sabina, falafels are actually great! 

i had never tried real ones, only avoided the gooey wannabees that they serve at unicafé when the veggie food run out.

farewell foreign reporters

this week will end with a farewell party for my class mates. they return back home for christmas, but it has been a pleasure to study and spend time with you <3

at the photojournalism release party.

88: snappertuna sunset

caught a less natural caterpillar on a countryside beach. even an ancient nokia can be useful when the camera is at home.

77: mio min mio

mio - apple perfectionism: pretty sweet and sour.


a friend called for charity concert company this evening. Who says no to free and fancy music for the good of sick children?

the idols of today's youth but also glimpses of artists from the 90s - when we were young and crafted signs to wave with at in this very same arena. we smiled with nostalgia and felt old an wise, like giraffes.

fun to once be able to calmly gaze over the sea of 10-year old heads. but the sad thing was that i wasn't much taller.

here a favourite of mine from some years back: reddrama.

i dropped some tears for the struggling children in the videos between the songs. blue and shiny like the palettes on my blouse.

mio, my son by Astrid Lindgren is what struck my mind on my way home. a beautiful fairy tale about a boy raised up in difficult conditions.

he overcomes his problems and i hope the nearly 300 000 euros collected at elämä lapselle has the same effect.

74: natural

the soul sisters made raw cup cakes to celebrate the sunny september sunday.

natural ingredients served by a natural beauty

(and shooted raw and natural with her phone camera.)
