And a happy new year

Congratulations! If you’re reading this, you have made it to 2012 and you probably will continue to live in this wonderful world until the apocalypse takes us all down in December. But not to worry! December is still a lifetime away. To make it all worth our while though, we better make some good old resolutions. Here are mine:

  • Shoot more men (I think I have shot in total 2 men in 2011, so I’ll have to photograph at least 3 men in 2012.)
  • Practise my French (Voulez-vous parler avec moi?)
  • Make more environmental portraits (Like, you know, people in uh.. Environments and stuff)
  • Swim in a lake (Any lake)
  • Move (To another city)
  • At least do one photoshoot using a 4×5 camera (Don’t know where I’m going to get it yet, but must. Must.)
  • Travel as much as I can (On the wishlist: France (Paris), Spain (Barcelona), Slovenia)
  • Eat more soup (CatSup not included)
  • Read at least one book per month (Jan (The People Look Like Flowers At Last) – Febr (Post Office) – Mar (Norwegian Wood) – April – May – June – July – Aug – Sept – Oct – Nov – Dec).
  • Try to make some self portraits again (They are very therapeutic for people who might otherwise need therapy)
  • Write much much much more (Keep in mind Bukowski: “Maybe I’ll write a novel, I thought. And then I did.”)
  • Buy a 2012 agenda (I’d put it in my agenda but I’m currently out)

      Haha, you excited as well? :D
      I don’t think I’ve ever been to Berlin. Convince me and I might try to plan it in! ;)

  2. Totally :)
    I’d show you how beautiful Berlin is, but first I have to fulfill my own New Year’s Resolution:

    1. Get new camera…

  3. Hoera voor nummer 10 en 11! :-) En veel succes met de rest ook natuurlijk.
