Back in November i got the opportunity to travel to Paris (France) with my college to explore the city and look at artwork in various galleries. We also visited 'Paris Photo' which was such a lovely event and i truly felt inspired after leaving each and every gallery/exhibition. While we were there we also roamed the streets at night, visited the Eiffel tower and walked around a Christmas market. I met other art/photography students from my college which i would have never met or spoken to otherwise, everyone got along and it was such a nice environment to be in. If you've traveled to Paris before you'll be aware of the glorious architecture around and if you've looked hard enough the unique city culture. A few people have said they were never really fond of the city, although i really loved it and would defiantly go again for a much longer period to explore some more.
(The youth hostel had the prettiest architecture and painted murals on the walls) I also took photographs using some disposable camera's which i'll be posting at a later date :)
Back in September i met Silje and Lukas at the Flickr meet up, little did i know then that these lovely people would be the next big thing. Shortly after, i became aware of their closeness online. These two are the sweetest people and together i believe they can conquer the world. I am in awe of their ability to love each other so fully even though they are in separate countries, Norway and Austria. Anyway these are just a few photo's i snapped of them during the day back in september 2012.
Instagram has become a huge part of my life acting as an online visual diary from my phone over the last year, i though i would share some of these photo's with you and give you a little bit more of an insight into my life from day to day captures through my iPhone.
