It was always about the light

Oslo aiport, December 2014

It was always about the light for me. That is how I found my love for the cities I once called home.

The light I found looking at the sunset from my dearest viewpoint in Lisbon, the city of lights. A “luz boa” or beautiful light.

About the warming sun hitting my face, when I was with him, at a warm sandy beach or sitting on the rocks at Arpoador hearing them clap as the sun sank in the water.

The pink glow of Santiago, softening the horizon of the skyscrapers and making everything seem like a doomsday painting with an aquarelle touch.

The light as we walked out of the clubs with sunglasses on and spent the Sunday sleeping and laughing in Görlitzer park. Knowing that there was always a next light, always something coming up.

Reflection of winter snow on the mountains where with a steep view into a fjord at Sunnmøre while floating on powder snow. Those winter days where you move so fast and so slow at the same time.

Hiding from boats with my skin warm from the smooth stone slope beaches at Lidingö. Long summer nights that I wish would never end.

On a balcony in Castellezgasse with morning brunches, on a late evening in Augarten with the sun hiding behind remains of a war of darkness.

That day, after my darkest December, there it was, the most beautiful pearly sky I’ve ever seen. In Oslo. I hope it will be back, I’m here now.

berlin – “tell me I’m not going home”

Come down love
Berlin in the cold
All that fighting, all that snow

Sober nights
and byron on my mind
Tell me I’m not going home
and I’ll stop waiting by the phone

Bedroom floor
and silence in my blood
Sorry love I’m running home
I’m a child of sun and the stars I love

things we lost in the fire

[split_gallery class=”set_1_columns name” size=”full” columns=”1″ show=”1-100″]

most of the roadside in chile is filled with beautiful sights and breathtaking nature – still every now and then you pass a little tragedy. small altars along the road in remembrance of people who lost their lives in traffic accidents is a far too common sight. then, one of the many forest fires lights up a hillside and people are doing all they can to save their homes.

niterói – across the bay

[split_gallery class=”set_1_columns name” size=”full” columns=”1″ show=”1″]say hi to niterói. rio de janeiro’s little cousin just across the bay. most famous for its contemporary art museum and its fantastic view of rio. the sanfransico beach is worth a visit when going here, and everything seems quiet compared to the extremely lively city of rio.
