Animal Farm

I love it when Spring arrives and with a short drive out of the city there are lambs everywhere! How cute are those little animals? These specific photographs where not shot just outside the city, actually far from it, in fact this is about a 5 hours drive outside Reykjavik, but you get what I mean. My uncle’s farm is located in the north of Iceland and my family tries to go there as often as possible since it’s where my mother is from and judging from my northern accent and way of speaking some people jump to the conclusion that I am also from the north (I have no idea where I am from since I was raised in Japan, live in Reykjavik but speak with a northern accent, it’s all very confusing). But getting back to the point. I got to go into the barn and take few photographs of sheep, cows and all the other creatures that were hiding there.

Kitchen stuff

I can’t imagine a better place to spend my time than in the kitchen. The smell, the food and it’s also the room in the house that I feel most comfortable. The feeling I get when I cook or bake is so wonderful. Taking a few ingredients and creating something delicious that my family will enjoy is one of the best feelings that I know of. When people tell me they are dieting I always feel sorry for them because I feel like they are missing out. What’s the fun in eating something delicious and maybe a tad sinful if you can’t enjoy it. Why do people feel guilty when they eat?

Cemetery


The sun was out! That doesn’t happen enough times here in Reykjavik. So I decided to take advantage and head downtown and take pictures. For some reason I decided to check out an old cemetery and I am glad I did. The way the sunlight appeared through the branches and leaves of the trees made the light so amazing. I was the only person there and everything was so quiet and peaceful.
