“i can still see our construction hats lying
exactly where we left them
pylons unsure of what to guard
bulldozers gazing out for our return
the planks of wood stiff in their boxes
yearning to be nailed up
but neither of us goes back
to tell them it is over
the bricks will grow tired of waiting and crumble
the cranes will droop their necks in sorrow
the shovels will rust
do you think flowers will grow here
when you and i are off
building something new
with someone else”
– the construction site of our future

New tattoo, and I don’t think it could have been more perfect for me. What do you think?

I only edit my pictures on my phone, and I thought I would share my favourite apps with you. My editing always depend on the picture, and what kind of look/mood I’m going for.
I love the HUJI app, and startet using it a few months ago. I love the old look and I just think the picture ends up with so much more feeling. It’s probably the easiest way to edit your pictures, if you’re not too picky. You just choose the pictures you want to edit and they “develop”, and a few seconds later you got your pictures looking like they were taken with analog film. The edit is random, and you can also choose if you want random light effects, which I always do.
Modern & Detailed
With Lightroom I sometimes edit the highlights, contrasts and colour completely different to give the whole picture a different look. It ends up showing more details, especially if the photo was very light and unclear at first. I basically did that on the first photo, and on the second I was quite happy with the look of it (as I was standing right next to the window haha), so I only made the colours a bit stronger and edited some contrast. The good thing about Lightroom is that you can save your edits so that you can just use the same ones on other photos if that’s the vibe you’re going for. I know you can buy other’s presets (edits) as well, but I haven’t done that.
Simple & Easy
Previously I used VSCO all the time, but I actually haven’t done that in ages. I do think it’s good for quick edits if you like any of the filters on there though, and it’s also very easy to make it your own with a few changes.
So that’s basically my “go to” editing apps! I’m no pro at editing, but I do really enjoy sitting down and editing my pictures while sipping my coffee and having some random series play on Netflix, haha.
Hope you found some of it useful!
