sinai

sinai managed to separate me from my camera. except for a few pictures. and that despite the fact that there is so much beauty and aesthetical ugliness all around, which always inspires me to shoot away. the mountains, the beduines  (followed by the questions;where did they come from and where are they going?), the camels… time simply moves differently over there. slow, very slow. it doesn’t make sense to rush, so at one point you manage to let go of that habit,even if it is only temporarily, and you surrender to the laissez-faire attitude of the locals. laying down, watching the sea, pondering life, eating, swimming and sleeping.

and now i am back in the city, the rush, the noise, the humidity. waiting for the rain. wondering what the winter will bring.

Låter underbart. Bara vara och äta, sova, bada, prata. Livet! Och det ser underbart ut. Skönt att du är här igen! Kram

oh my oh my, these photos. looks incredible place. no wonder if you focused more on seeing and feeling instead of taking more pictures. beautiful.

it´s raining here, a real autumn storm. the wind is banging the roof. i hope it stays there where it belongs. the roof i mean.. ;)

fru a, här men inte där! härligt och speciellt var det. hörs snart hoppas jag, kram

yaelian, var du? vart någonstans? vill du inte åka igen?

evelina, kan varmt rekommenderas! och billigt är det, jämfört med många andra vackra stränder i världen.
kram

annika, det är helt klart underskattat att stänga av mobilen och datorn, det insåg jag. kan göra under! kram

outi, i hope the roof stayed there? for a change, it was good to let go of my habit of capturing every little moment. and anyhow right now i have a lack of inspiration...hope it will be back soon.

That was an old childhood dream of mine; to travel with the beduins... never did, though... hm.
