Since the day we are born we deal with time, different times of the day, of the week, of the year. Times of life. Youth, teenage, adult, parent and last but not least when we retire.
Patience is almost impossible as a young human beeing. I am one of them. I can still want things done NOW.
But a lot of good things need time. Love needs time. Often at least. Time to be discovered, to grow, to mature.
Cicci & Christian know what they talk about when they speak out the word TIME.
Saturday, I had the chance to photograph this lovely couple. And yes, it is only a teaser.
As for this love it needed time as it is for me and Just People and the book. It needs time. We are growing now.
I wish you a wonderful week. Think about the Word TIME. What is it that triggers in your mind when you Think about time? Any special moment in your Life you want to share with us?
When I was younger, I was both a punk and then a hard rock girl. I always felt I was different from the others in my class. In the teenage time I loved to have strong colours on me and stick out from the crowd. I decided already as a 2-year-old baby, that I wanted to have a motorbike. My mother let me be the person I was, even if sometimes it was not that easy. Society judged you. When I put on my leather jacket I felt invincible. Most of my friends were like that. But what the people outside didn’t know was, that we were, deep inside and under our leather clothes, very kind and gentle and we always helped others.
So I am for sure not a person that judges our young generation and other adults for what they wear or how they look. When I met Agge in the studio I was immediately fascinated by his amazing arm tattoos. He has lovely warm eyes and a kind personality even though the piercing and the dressing might put a few persons out of balance. (smile)
During the interview we talked and found soon that he was similar to me. He also felt different from a very young age and also always went his own way, no matter what. It is a Lovely way of living that for sure many people don’t feel comfortable with, but I believe is more loyal to yourself.
So Agge decided to bring this into his own Picture. When you stand in the middle of Life and you have to choose, you should go your own path, and follow your instincts. Cause they are most of the time the right ones.
And of course, as usually, I tease you with a tiny part of the Picture.
She knew since she was 20 that her Life would have been short. They predicted it to her.
In 2005 she got cancer. She accepted it. She said her time had come and decided not to do anything against it. Just live Life go her on way.
She enjoyed Life, Went on, living as it would be her last day, every day, since.
Live NOW. TODAY. You don’t know when it’s YOUR call, she says to me.
This year the doctor told her… “you have only a short time left to live” … heart problems.
She is 59. Alive. Happy and full of energy. Wise. And Death is a friend to her. She lives with Death side by side as a dancing partner through Life. Because sooner or later it is , it will be part of any of us.
The time is “NOW”, not Before and not after. We are living in a NOW moment. Nothing new for most of us, but still we tend to forget to live at this very moment.
One of the first pictures taken for Just People was of Alf. Alf knows how to enjoy Life by living NOW. He started building “NOW” Clocks to remind people to stop where they are and enjoy the moment they live in. This is the only time existing.
Annica is an amazing woman. She is what I can call it a persons with contrast in the positive way. She is YING and YANG.
A beautiful woman with an amazing smile that would kill just anybody. She lives in 2 different worlds. The man world, working at the harbour and having to do with a heavy manly work entoured by male workers. On the other side she works in a salong and fixes up brides and people that want to have a fancy make-up. All that is such an amazing blend. Of course I had to have her in my Project, this versatility intrigues me and I can image that there are other people like her out there blending the female and the male World. It’s indeed an intresting life with big contrasts and rules to adapt to.
Let’s enjoy the best of two Worlds cause every single one of them can give us something back. I tease you with the lower part of the Picture and a Picture of all the props used in this particular photo.
She was born on of the islands of Sweden. Since her childhood she has been in touch with fishermans, started fishing in young age.
So we took the fishing theme for her message to Catch the Life, giving us strenght and joyful moments.
Sorry guys you will have to be happy with just a teaser today.
