Last weekend me and my love one had some great time recharging our batteries. We first went skiing for the last time this season and then went to Orcas Island, one of the islands of the San Juan archipelago. The islands are situated in the opening of Puget Sound just north of Seattle.
As I have written before anyone working in the creative field need time off to recuperate and replenish their creative well. Those days at Orcas Island did just that for us. We went kayaking along the shores of the island in beautiful sunsets, under blue skies and in warm spring temperatures, but we also got caught in more wind and choppier waves than we felt quite at ease with. Those days did wonders to erase my mind of any stress and clear my thoughts of work and duties – even the more scary moments when kayaking on white caps felt more like dancing with wolves than a graceful tango. Of course I took pictures, I photographed quite a bit as a matter of fact, but it was all for fun and never felt like work (as much as I love my work, I still need to feel I am not working from time to time). Now I feel ready to proceed with my creative projects and start working my long days again. As I said we all need time off from time to time. It does wonders.
Talking about new projects, as I am posting this I am about to start teaching a new photo workshop in Bolivia. It’s the same workshop as I announced my colleague and friend Sven Creutzmann will teach in October. This time we have 16 Danish photographers travelling and photographing with us in the footsteps of Che Guavara. If you would like to have an idea how a workshop like this feels like, we will be posting daily reports and stories from our teaching on the blog of Blue Hour Photo Workshop. Have a look if you are considering joining one of our workshops. Have look even if you don’t…
