My Funny Eye = 7!




Hey, guess what?! Somehow the blog has turned seven years old! I can't quite believe it! In a time where most people and their mother (including mine!) are on Instagram, blogs are still dear to me. It's more fun and interesting to see a fuller story behind an image or an experience, to gain something a bit more substantial than a little short comment (which I am guilty of over on IG) and a nice picture. Thanks to those of you who still take the time to check in here, and especially to those of you who leave a comment, I really appreciate hearing from you.


In other news: I have made a portfolio website - finally! If you hop on over to www.famapa.net you can check it out for yourselves. And commission me and give me work, and an exhibition etc etc - haha! This is the year when I'll take my photography a bit more seriously, and hopefully there's some new adventures on the way. Let me know what you think!

Now if you excuse me, I think I need to go and get me some cake to celebrate. Hip hip!

  1. Happy 7th anniversary! It is funny - and nice - to think that your blog and you have been part of my daily routine for so long.
    Oh my, so you took the jump?! How brilliant! Your portfolio looks very nice, I rediscovered many of my fave pics. One more reason for me to move to London haha. I wish you every success. Well, I'll have cake too. Cheers dear F!

      Hope you had some cake; I had some apple and peach crumble in the end - lekker!

    1. Tusen takk Astrid! I'm glad you're still blogging too - I still read it regularly (I read blogs on my phone when I brush my teeth - I'm very strict with how much time I spend online), but don't tend to leave comments as it's so tricky to do on a phone. I'm still there! So excited to see how your house is progressing, and catching up with you and the family in general. Kram!

  6. Dankjewel! I know, blogs are fab, aren't they? But it is eerily quiet sometimes. And it's not fun to spend time putting posts together, only to send them into a big fat black hole. But! It doesn't matter does it? You do it because you want to. So if you want to wake your blog from it's slumber - just do it. It'll feel good. Or it might not. And if it doesn't - let it be. Life's too short to do things you don't want to. Right? xx
