After today I’m going to take a little break. I’ll still write, of course, but my days won’t be so oblivious anymore, because She’s coming over for a visit (how stupid does that sound? My Better Half’s coming over for a visit).
And so, especially for Her, on the day of Her return, I dedicate an oblivious post to one of Her favorite items (and probably one of my biggest pet  peeves). The Double Bubble (aka Tupla Kupla) by one of Finland’s greatest designers Eero Aarnio. As a fashion item I think it’s a total “onding”. That’s Dutch for, literally translated, “unthing”, which is basically a very appropriate name, even in English 😀
Sure, it’s a financial investment (or so they say), but you know what they say about monkeys and gold rings…
But being a photographer, I think I actually managed to do something interesting with it. A color gel and rotating goes a long way…

I was in a local coffee shop with my family having a little break from their shopping spree (heeeheee, seriously, I never shop! 😀 ). The lights caught my eye already quite early on. The lights themselves were … umm… well… not my style, to put it diplomatically correct 😉 But the whole picture was a tad bit unclear.
It took me a few minutes to figure out how it was exactly.
Drop a line if you’ve figured it out.
