Waiting for my friend at the bar.
This is my first post from my mobile. Later I`ll see how it looks.
I know this is supposed to be a photography blog, but this time I´m gonna expand a little.
Last year I started an internal process resulting in me discovering I want to remain childfree (this is fun: wordpress spellcheck says this word is wrong! suggests ¨children¨). This conclusion was hard to express aloud in general, and my serious worries were about my boyfriend desires. Fortunately I found he feels the same way, which was a relief.
I read a lot, and still do, about this subject. Beyond all the awful things people may say about this choice, one thing that called my attention is this ¨need¨ to find a big reason. Travel the world, having a career, not gaining weight, raising a child is expensive, you had a terrible childhood, etc. There must be a super reason why you choose this path. I thought about this during my process, because I don´t have a career or any big project that could be restraint by having children. Ok, I love to travel and probably wouldn´t be able to do it as much and far as I do now, but still, that´s not a reason not to have children. The reason is I don´t want to, I don´t feel it. Reason enough to me.
I hear comments like: what does she do if she doesn´t have kids? I laugh at this, there´s plenty of things to do! but sometimes I feel I get numb by work, routine and general things in life, and miss doing things I love, like my photography.
The thing is, we are always under pressure to have kids; if not, why not?; ok not having kids, then what? what is the extraordinary things you´re gonna do?
I going to be happy, just the way I am now.
I guess we should honour all the people who don´t have time or resources to do what they like (maybe because they are raising kids), and do our thing.
In 2013 I turned 30 and went to Colombia with a friend to celebrate our changing decade. I never uploaded this pics, so i´ll try to start today to show you this amazing country!
I´m back (again)! It´s been a long time! I went on holidays, came back, tried to change my job unsuccessfully and started my own tiny business. And the excuse to post is this week´s travel theme!
Well, as usual, lots of things happened this year, we finally settled down in our new home, after almost two years of roaming. I learnt to cook new recipes. I also learnt that I can be a kindergarten teacher if necessary. I did a lot of crafts for the house. I grew my own lettuce. The winter, after there months of ice, fortunately ended! and the warm wind of the summer is blowing.
I tried doing bokeh!
I love the sun in the house during winter mornings…
Last week I posted a picture of a reflection for the Liquid Travel Theme. I´ll post it again (because I like it so much), but there´re two new reflections for you.
This is a tricky one, I´m thankful of almost everything in my life! so I should post a thousand photos, don´t worry… I won´t.
I´m thankful about:
Maybe there´s more, but I don´t want to bore you. So here are the pics:
Go wherever I want…
With my love…

Oily coffee in India.
It was hard to me to find something mine, I own some objects of course, but I´m not too much into possessions, I rather travel. After giving it a thought I found that mine are my cameras, with wich I always travel (not all of them at the same time).
