A week of fall vacation is simply wonderful. Basically, I hadn’t had any fall break for six years because in Turkey there are only summer and winter vacation, and here my school introduced the break only this year. Maybe it is more of a thing in Germany to have a week off in October every year. I didn’t even know that I missed it – until this week.
I had time to do so many great things that I will feed on the memories for weeks. Except for last Sunday the weather was great so that I spent much time outside. I really have rediscovered my joy in taking photos with my DSLR, meaning I love to walk around for several hours just to shoot pictures. On my Instagram you can see first results. It feels just like I needed a little reminder of how much I enjoy crawling on the ground to get that one good shot. Recently, I mainly used my Smartphone camera because it was more convenient. Carrying around a heavy DSLR all the time isn’t always fun. But now that I’ve got to know a whole group of people in Boston that loves photographing, I remember all the advantages of having my camera with me. I can’t wait to meet up for a Halloween shooting soon.
By the way, I also did so much else these last days, there wasn’t any time to laze about. My friend and I spent several great hours at Ikea (their $2 breakfast is delicious!), and I finally found affordable canning jars, cookie tins and my new love: a simple milk frother. What a wonderful tool! I tell you it’s been a superb break and I hope I’ll carry those positive vibes with me over the following weeks.
