Exercise 36: Fresh Flowers
Our household isn’t the type of place that constantly has fresh flowers and I wasn’t keen on buying flowers for the sake of this exercise so I decided to wait with it until something came up. On my trip to Morocco we visited a lot of places and one of the highlights was an old mosque in Marrakesh. Full of rose bushes and cats and gorgeous tiled walls with that beautiful pink tinge. So this is where I decided that this would be a fitting version of fresh flowers.

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 in Morocco in June of 2015.
