I admit that I´ve this weird habit of looking around at the things people display in their homes. I guess one could somehow get to know a little bit more about the owner of the house by the way they decorate their home. Every little objects tells a story and rather personal to them. I just can´t help myself from taking photos of the home that I been invited to. Especially if I´m visiting friend´s summer house in Denmark, part of the excitement from receiving the invitation is thinking that which lens or which camera should I have with me – and that´s before I even ask for permission to take photos of their interior decor. These photos were shot during my recent visit to my dear friends summer house this summer. I won’t mention their names since I “forgot” to ask them if I could post these photos on my blog. (Ops!)
I really enjoy taking photo, it makes me seeing the world around in details. You might not notice that I often carry my EOS with me – if it´s not on me, then it´s somewhere near me. Besides all the skill and knowledge in photography, I know that having the right timing is also important. Mind you that I´m lacking all of them ha ha..! I want to use this post as a landing page where you can find my most recent good shot. I will try to make this project as a daily photo update.
This week I worked at MAC Cosmetics counter at Magasin Kongens Nytorv. Just like a little kid at the candy store, I went completely super exited working with all the MAC products – mega selection of eyeshadow colours, textures, foundations, highlighters and beauty tools ect. One of my favorite item is the MAC Pigments; highly concentrated loose colour powder which creates an intense effect. Use it alone or mix & match a couple of colours really gives me the possibility to use my creativity in making a great eye makeup. The photo below is an application I did this week on one of MAC customer. You should drop by at the counter and try out all these amazing products!
Recently I did a bridal makeup all the way up in the north of Denmark. Since this is a “whole package” of bridal makeup service, I stayed all throughout the wedding and was also invited to attend the wedding dinner. Besides the funny songs and personal speeches, what I enjoy the most when attending a Danish wedding is the kissing tradition. It began during the early 1970s and it being in practice until today. During the dinner party, whenever the groom leaves the room – to the gents or taking photo – all the men in the room rush over and queue up to kiss the bride and whenever the bride leaves the room, all the women rush over to kiss the groom. Whenever the guests banging fork or knife on the plate, the wedding couple have to climb onto their chairs and kiss! When the guests stamp their feet, the pair have to kiss under the table. There are many other traditions carried during the ceremony such as throwing the rice, cutting the socks ect. If you ever getting an invitation to a Danish wedding, don´t miss it!
Here are the photos from the wedding:
Every Weekend Is A Celebration – It´s a high summer season now. Business is rather slow as most of the Danes are on “out-of-office” email auto reply. The Danes is raking highest on the Most Travel Nation in the world. It´s important to take a time off and unwind. But as for myself, I work all year round. So what I do to create the life/work balance? I put an extra effort to make my weekends – possibly every weekend is a celebration!
Here´s from last weekend at the summer house:
