who knows where the time goes

"and i am not alone while my love is near me 
i know it will be so until it's time to go 
so come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again 
i have no fear of time”

march, 1999.

around this time of the year, some 16 years ago,
when i was not even fifteen and film was still the norm,
and when plastic cameras were not in vogue,
i went away for a few days with a dear school friend
to a little, almost forgotten village
with this cheap and beautifully red rangefinder
and snap some photographs.

a lot of time has passed since
and while i've definitely changed a lot
i've also stayed pretty much the same,
always taking pictures of trees, landscapes and nature.

(boy, i do feel a little old now)


  1. These are gorgeous! Love to see your 90's shots. It's weird how time can find us the same people we always were. How cool that your passion for photography has only grown :-)

  2. you're a poetess. you know that, right?

    1. you'll make me blush ♥♥♥♥♥♥

  3. These are beautifully melancholy, Toi! It's wonderful to look at them and really realise that you haven't changed that much at all; still the same poetic and artistic approach to photography and to life!
