In the summer of 2014 my Husband and I decided to take a road trip down to the south of France from Sweden to soak up some sun, and as I was deciding which books to take, I picked up my copy of Alessandra Cave‘s gem, Shooting With Soul. I ended up completing a good number of the exercises in the book but instead of doing them in order, like the book suggests, I chose to complete them whenever I felt the opportunity presented itself during that time. I also used whatever I had available in terms of gear, which was not a lot and many times presented a really limiting challenge. I did not, and could not, complete all of the projects in the book on the trip, so I shall continue them now that we’re back home in Sweden. This image was completed at home. 

Exercise 24: Milestones and New Beginnings

It’s a strange feeling, becoming a citizen of another country other than the one you were born in. I honestly didn’t think it would ever come about, or that it could ever happen, but it did. I have been living in Sweden for almost 6 years and thought that it was time to apply. My motivations for applying are many, but I would never have done it had I been required to give up my Australian citizenship. Having Swedish citizenship doesn’t exactly make me a Swede, nor does it make me NOT Swedish, it’s neither and both at the same time. But, I felt it was an important part of integrating into the country I choose to call my home. I don’t think I’ll ever comfortably call myself Swedish, but over the years I have noticed that parts of my personality have become “more Swedish”. In any case, it’s a huge honour to be accepted.
