Luminale in Frankfurt


As I promised a while ago, I wanted to make a special post for the final day of March’s photo challenge. I do realize it’s May already and to be honest I have no idea how we got there. But since I still wanted to share the pictures I (and to be precise, the boyfriend as well) took on that day, here you go!

The task of the day was to take 9 pictures throughout the day. I actually intended to document my day, but since it was a working day, there actually wouldn’t have been many interesting things to show. And to be honest, while working I just forgot about it. BUT! I had planned something special for that evening, so I decided to document that instead. And thanks to the boyfriend’s new DSLR we took some amazing pictures. We went to Luminale which is a “light festival” in Frankfurt meaning there are light installations all around the city. It’s a lot of fun to wander around and explore all the different sites, but there are far too many to see them all. This year, we went to Palmengarten, a botanical garden, and went for a stroll. It was a beautiful spring day which made it the perfect evening activity. I hope you enjoy the pictures. And make sure to visit Luminale if you’re ever in town when it’s on!










InspiraShot: Blooming


Today is my first day of a 2 week holiday. Since the last couple of weeks have been kinda stressful and I’ve been feeling pretty worn out, I decided to take things slowly. Instead of running errands or going shopping like I usually do on Saturdays, I took a stroll to a park that’s just a short walk from where I live. I sat down on a bench, breathed, enjoyed the sunshine and started reading a Haruki Murakami novel. It was a perfect afternoon just by myself. I love this park because with it’s beautiful flowers growing everywhere it reminds me of my grandma’s garden and the happy summers I spent there, watering plants and picking strawberries. Even though everything is developing well regarding both my job (I passed probation period) and my private adventures (we had a band rehearsal with a drummer for the very first time), I feel like I’ve lost track a little lately. That’s why I want to use those 2 weeks to finally get back on track, to surround myself with people and activities I love. So I can start blooming again – like the flowers in that garden.
