A lovely weekend

This has been one of the best weekends I has had in a long time. It has been one of those times when everything just is just the way it should be...

Saturday I spent the morning photographing the Saturday art school at uni, they needed some new photographs for next years catalog, and Mr. Hazel asked me if I had time, and it is hard to say no to him and I did get film, and framing-wood for doing it, plus of course it does look good on my CV, hihi.I think this is one of my favorites, she was so concentrating on the cat she was making that she didn't even seem to notes me standing there with the camera and a massive flash-gun. And the drawing of a cat was AMAZING. Love how she made the eyes almost glow.
I was a bit worried at first since I always has been told that kids are so hard to photograph, but these kids where just enjoying, drawing, painting, cutting and gluing to even notes me most of the time.
Some of them where so cute and all of them where so polite and when I asked about there work they loved talking about what they where making.

A couple of them was very curious about my camera, so I let them try it out, something they found very fun.
It did make me think though that there is way to little art in the school and I believe that if they could have chance to do more of it it make school much more fun.
I hope the people at uni are happy with my pictures and that they are gone use them, because it is always fun getting your photographs on print.
After spending the whole morning at uni I got back to edit them, clean my room and do some work.

It was so nice and sunny, and already being in a photographic mood after the morning made me take these pictures of the flowers I have in my window.
In the afternoon, Nina, one of my housemates, asked me if I wanted to go swimming. the place we went to was so nice and clean that I signed up for 4 month. I have wanted to join a gym for a long time, but it always get pushed aside.
But now I a gone GO, already paid so not going would be very stupid indeed.
Then today I went to Starz, a American diner, with Sophie from my class. It was great fun, and the food was amazing! Looking forward to bring my sister there when she is coming over.

She also gave me a quiche that she had made and this tiny photograph. The scan does not do it justice, it is so beautiful. I gone give it a nice big frame and hang it up as soon as I get find a frame that I like.
So that was my lovely weekend, and tomorrow is a new week with lots of great people to talk with and I get to chat with people that has not been around this weekend.
