Back from summer vacation. Sitting infront of the screen again comes with mixed feelings. An inexplicable blues, side by side with the relief that comes with getting back into routines. I don’t know about you but I have to take deep breaths upon facing the fact that also the fall will be spent mostly wfh (held onto the naive wish I’d at least be partly working from the office again) Either way, the best screen experience since getting back was flipping through a few rolls from this spring/summer that I developed. Too many to share them all in one go so I’d thought I’d start with a few from our trek up north. We walked the most southern part of Kungsleden (The King’s Road) from Hemavan to Ammarnäs. Despite forecasts of days and days of rain we enjoyed a week of mostly sun and pleasant winds. Oh I love the mountains. Always feel a little bit like Julie Andrews in Sound of music (minus perfectly styled hair and long skirts). I got mountain FOMO on our way down the last section of the trail, so we turned around and walked back up for another 24h on the mountain side. Impeccable decision. So here goes, a selection of 35mm.
Sofia Hellsten, cookbook author & photographer, although main trade of work at the moment is Creative Director at podcast platform Acast. Her book “The Japanese Table – Small Plates for Simple Meals” was released fall of 2019. This will with some probability be a space with recipes of simple (but GOOD) food, a constant quest for the perfect breakfast or just some good old inspiration to life’s important details – flavour and form. Based in Stockholm, but always longing for Japan.
