Photographic Friday

underwater palm tree

Week 2 of me sharing analogue photographs. This time an underwater palm tree. Well not really, it is a multiple exposure of a palm tree and the sea on top of each other, in Turkey on summer holidays. Would love to go back there to relax and do nothing but swimming in the sea.

Summer and outdoor living is over so I’m back home with time to blog. Lets first look back on this glorious summer.

Between traveling around festivals in my caravan I went back to London to spend some time with friends for a couple of days. As it was boiling hot we spend most of our time in the various parks, starting in Battersea park, moving on for a picnic in Hyde park (secretly to see Mr. Darcy in the serpentine but sadly we were a couple of weeks too late) and finally Regents Park to see Pride & Prejudice at the open air theatre.

Meet Alice, my lovely little caravan.

This summer I’ll be working at a theatre festival, which means I’ll be living in a caravan for about 3 months. Until 2 years ago I said I’d never even go on holiday where I don’t have my own toilet and shower, but with the prospect of a fun job I’ve caved in and bought a funny little caravan. Now I can’t live in a boring old caravan all summer and I had a couple of weeks off before I started the job, so I’ve done some decorating.

Initially my plan was to paint the whole thing inside out, but that seemed to be a bit too much effort. Instead I put coloured plastic foil on the cupboards, lots of posters on the walls, a pile of cushions on the bed and made fresh curtains.

I used a green, pink and blue colour scheme. Partly as I still had accessorise in those colours lying about, and it looks very cheerful.SONY DSCSONY DSC

Most of the images on the walls and the collage on the wardrobe door are from Flow magazine, one of my favourite Dutch magazines (that now also has an international edition). Of course I also opened my pandora box of postcards to choose some nice ones to hang on the wall.

I’m hoping to get a good and sunny festival season this summer, at least my caravan will bring some sunshine.

Oh and why Alice? Well the caravan is officially called ‘Adria’ so it had to start with an A and I do have a bit of an ‘Alice in wonderland’ feel for the whole thing. Like you’ve gone down a technicolour rabbit hole and landed in a flowerbed.
Ps. A tutorial on making those curtains are up later this week, super easy!
