A new series in progress

Some random pictures from my new series in progress


I am serious and have a lot of fun

The story of this paper was written by Thomas Kando. He is a son of Hungarian photographer Ata Kando. I got this at Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam where I went to see her exhibition I Shall Use My Time there in 2016.
This is the part I like: "Was there a plan, as far as we could tell? Absolutely not. We were just having a lot of fun."

I had been feeling down for some reasons lately. I didn't even know  the point of being happy. You be happy, then what? Might sound depressing but I was thinking about things like that a lot for a while.
After all, I think that being happy is not what you have to focus on in your life but having fun. Look, Patti Smith also says "Life is already enough difficult. Just ride with it."

This is a board game which my boyfriend's mother bought at a secondhand shop. She makes games like puzzles by herself and give one to me sometimes like when I take a plane to Japan from the Netherlands, so I won't get bored during a flight.
