photo journal no 18: conservatory and gardens

I’m on vacation from my job as a photographer, but still at home as many might be this summer. A couple of days ago I took a trip over the day with my family to a garden a little bit north of Uppsala (the town I live in in Sweden) to a small old town called Österbybruk. There they have an old conservatory with gardens surrounding it. So beautiful with the old buildings and flowers, herbs and vegetables. Very inspirational both for photography and gardening. Visit their website at www.osterbybruk-orangeri.se

photo journal no 17: the meadow allotment

On a rainy and quiet dark day around midsummer I revisited this allotment made into a meadow. So beautiful. I had happened to pass it a few days earlier on a sunny day but with no camera. Now the weather was changing to rainy and windy and I wanted to shoot some photos before the meadow lost it’s flowers in the wind and rain. It started raining just when I got there and I got som photos just in time. I love that the owner uses the whole of the allotment as a meadow with different flowers. Nothing else, not even a place to sit. But lovely with the blue and pink flowers. I will go back this summer to see if the owner is there and if the flowering changes during the summer. So hopefully to be continued…

my office space in the studio

This is my office space in the studio, located in Uppsala, Sweden. I recently painted the wall behind the desk green. The desk is actually my mother-in-law’s, bought new in the seventies by her and my father-in-law. She has no space for it since she moved and it looks really good in my studio. I love the soft green color on the wall and how it works with my nature and flower art prints. I also love the seventies chair and the old concrete floor and the old radiator and the beautiful window. Having my nature prints around me like this when I work makes me see what the next step in my work process is. Take a look into my shop to see all images and all the new ones. https://ulrikaekblomphoto.patternbyetsy.com Continue reading
