From the market

market haulmarket haulmarket haulmarket haul

These pictures are from a Saturday morning in Sydney a few months back. Our Saturdays back then were so different compare to those these days. We would wake up early, go to the markets, have a coffee, sometimes breakfast at our local cafe, read a book or in the paper and plan the weekend. Back home we would wash and the get the fruit and veggie ready to be stored. So much has changed since then.
Since Matilda is here so many of our routines have changed but somehow quiet a few have remained similar. In the last weeks of getting to know each other we also tried to find out how to go/adjust with/to her flow but also how we could introduce her to some of our little routines. These days we have to be a bit more organized but we still try to all go together to the markets on Saturday morning, sometimes we manage to grab a coffee together and meet up with friends for a nice chat and often go for long walks around the neighbourhood. And sometimes none of these things work out and we just all hang out together on the couch or in bed, which is also quiet nice.

Just a single photo for you, I took at the Eveleigh markets a few moons ago, to wish you a happy weekend!

/ I love this blog and its photos, I could scroll through it for hours
// The new Sufjan Stevens album is so great, such a shame we won't be able to see him perform at the Opera house this time

Pool time with friends I

I have written many times about one of my favourite spots in Sydney: Wylies Baths.

And so it was no surprise that we tried to go and swim in the pool and hangout out there a bit before we left Sydney. One hot Saturday morning, we went with our great friends Mel and Polo. We found a nice corner in the shade and spent a few hours, chatting, reading & refreshing in the pool.

It's those days I think of a lot.

Cool Blue

Cool Blue Another one from Coogee beach on a hot Spring day. I remember it was one of the first warm days and the beach was packed with people enjoying the cool water and the warm sun on their skin.
I wish I could walk into the picture and go for a nice swim

Aarhus - Rainbow Panorama

Within a few hours only you are in a different country, which is why we are already making some plans for trips this year. In January I took the train to visit a dear friend and her family in Aarhus, Denmark. I love traveling by train, when you see the landscape 'flying' by and can just be with your thoughts a book/podcast and maybe also some knitting.

I spent three days there and we walked around the city which is super lovely with its small streets and cute stores, had great coffee at La Cabra, went for a swim and into the sauna at the new bath and of course also had a look around the Modern Museum called ARoS. It is not a huge museum but I loved that there were lots of kids exploring the art, too. They particularly also loved the 'Your rainbow Panorama" by Olafur Eliasson as much as I did. Unfortunately my film camera ran out of battery and so I wasn't able to capture this great experience on film but my phone photos will also give you an idea of this place.

If you happen to be in Arhus, make sure to check 'Your atomospheric colour atlas' and 'Your rainbow panorama" the two artworks by Eliasson's at ARoS.

Have a great Easter weekend,

Random shots, Sydney AustraliaRandom shots, Sydney AustraliaRandom shots, Sydney AustraliaRandom shots, Sydney Australia

Four random shots I took in Sydney, I like how the colours fit together somehow and how every shot is transporting memories with it - one reason why I love photography so much.

#1 milk crates waiting to get picked up on our old street, I saw them most days when I walked to work and always loved their colours
#2 My walk to work was a beautiful 40 minutes walk through the botanic gardens along the water, through the city and crossing a bridge. This one I took one day on my way there.
#3 Waratah's at our local market in Potts Point, I adore their colour and shape. Such a beautiful flower.
#4 A typical Saturday lunch at our house in Sydney

While typing this it is raining and very windy here in Hamburg. The trees outside our house are moving intensely and the sky is grey. The little person is sleeping on my lap since an hour and it is one of the best feelings. It has been a very quiet day and we are enjoying this. We already had a few nice Sping-ish days and I am so excited and look forward to going out for long walks and away to the sea for the weekend and to wearing t-shirt and sandals....

> Have you listened to the new Sufjan Stevens album (Carrie & Lowell), its so beautiful.
>> Jamie Oliver is such a legend, I just signed his petition to educate kids better about food.
