Chaotic.

That's how I would describe my life right now. Chaotic, but fun and engaging and interesting and terribly detailed and busy as banana jam. But fun. I guess that's what it's all about, being swept along for the ride and making the most of it, enjoying it in your own special way. Thankfully life is not so chaotic that I haven't had time to take a few pictures here and there. Most of what i have been doing is detailed in the next photo...it's me, my life right now. Not technically perfect but fun all the same! Yep, you win, revision, revision and yet more revision. But it's all fun.

I had Biology [difficult but doable] and Latin [easy!] yesterday and German today. I adore German so much..the way it flows, the culture, the literature but it was really ziemlich schwierig today. But my German teacher is utterly lovely and I know she'll be proud of us all whatever we achieve. She's nice like that.
It was lovely this morning, all of us German students studying together before the exam. Laughing and joking and practising our phrases. Do you ever have moments like this? Where you just marvel at the beauty of life and friendship and wonder why some people resort to violence and war? We were sitting in the big hall and as our voices echoed around the room, you could hear the soft tinkling of a grand piano in the background...from downstairs in the assembly hall. I wished I had my camera but there's a quote I read once, about how you shouldn't be bitter that you didn't have the chance to capture it...you should just soak up the moment and I did. I just smiled. As two girls [ballet fans...] pirouetted in time to our chanting of sein and haben, the sounds echoing around the room and the morning sunlight spilling through the window, I felt that moment of happiness. A moment of stillness and beauty and truth and life. I love moments like that. =)
And now, sorry for that little diversion...I just had to write it and etch it in time, some completely unrelated pictures from the last few days. I still don't have my 35mm back but I'm finding the kit lens quite fun (ssssshhhhh!).

Awww! I often feel - sadness? resentment? disappointment? - at having missed some moments, but I try to remember them myself.

And I love the image of the ballet dancers dancing to your German chanting!

Lovely photos - your yellow flower reminds me I need to post a poppy photo I took yesterday.

Such bright colours!

And once again, I completely agree with everything you said. Those moments you wish you could just capture or put in a bottle and re-play. I just bought a little p&s with some birthday money, and I've been taking it to school with me. I love being able to carry it where ever I go. =] Good luck with the rest of your tests, Lulu! I will talk to you soon.

Lulu, you should be a writer (and a photographer). Your imagery is fantastic and I feel each time as if I am in the scene with you. Beautifully written, and beautiful photographs.

Haven't been to your blog in a long time... some of your stuff is getting outside the box, I love it! I always like your stuff though!

You know, for the last few weeks, I've been using the kit more than my 35... weird huh? It's fun to have a really wide angle though sometimes...

Gorgeous photos, and description of your afternoon. It sounds lovely. Thanks for the quote on enjoying the moment instead of going crazy trying to capture it.. You're so very right (as usual!)
