My husband and I just moved house, so I haven't been a very active photographer lately, but I'm going to make up for it.. BIG TIME. We moved from an apartment in a very busy city to a terraced house (or town house, a house with adjoining neighbours, but no more than two) in a more rural area of another city some 60 kilometres away (about 40 miles). It's not a long distance in America, but here in the Netherlands it accounts for a big move. We had a truck full of our stuff and two normal-sized cars completely loaded with people only able to sit in the front seats. We made it all in one piece though, with the help of family and friends, for which I'm very grateful.

So, that was a big change. We have our own back garden now and a somewhat smaller garden at the front of the house, which is more or less a tiny courtyard with some hedges. In our back garden we have a Japanese Maple tree and a garden pond with salamanders (maybe I'll be able to shoot them some time) and all sorts of flowering shrubs. I'll be working a lot in the garden this Summer, trying to make something of the slight disorder the previous owners of our house left behind. Got blisters in my hands today from working with a shovel and pruning shears, but it was totally worth it :D.

This garden is going to be my sanctuary as I for some reason love gardening and having my own herbs garden and growing my own veggies. I'm not one of those healthy foodie freaks, I just love digging in the dirt and feeling some sort of independence I guess. So you can expect some photos from my garden as I'm progressing in turning it into one of the nicest gardens in the area:).

Also I have a few shoots coming up. One involves a portrait shoot with the family of an acquaintance of mine and the other is a shoot during a series of concerts by the choir my husband used to play guitar with. Dang, what a sentence. They'll be doing the concert two evenings in our hometown and they asked me to photograph the whole thing. I think it's going to be awesome, as their shows have gotten better and better. They'll be transforming a lot of famous epic fantasy songs into choir renditions, so that's got to be interesting at least.

So, let me know what you think about all this, just so I know I'm not just talking to myself (although that's not necessarily a bad thing:P ). By the way, if any of you have any tips on gardening and growing your own veggies, please let me hear them! I'm a newbie..
