I’m part of a photo exhibition!

So I leave for Bath in the morning, and I’m running around like crazy packing the last things and being convinced I have forgotten to do something important. So all is as it usually is the night before going somewhere. 😛

I actully managed to squeeze in a short little visit to Stockholm today in the afternoon, to sort out a few errands but mostly to attend the opening of an exhibition of photography at the Kulturhuset in the center of the city. Earlier this year I was contacted by a lovely young lady who studies photography and who was looking for people to photograph for this project that she was part of, she was supposed to take photos of hats, and wanted something with a bit of a Jane Austen/Brontë theme. So she contacted me and asked if I’d be up for it, and I thought it sounded like fun. So she came out here one day, and we spent a fun day together doing photo shoots and talking about Jane Austen. Because she wasn’t only a very talented photographer but a fellow Jane Austen lover too!!

The photos she took were amazing. I really loved them! And one of them was part of this exhibition, so that’s why I had to go! 🙂 And if anyone’s in Stockholm do go check it out! It’s free and runs until the 20th of October.

It was fun to see a picture of myself hanging on the wall amongst all the other fantastic photos. And I just thought I would share some of the photos she took with you all, because I do like them and because Beata really is a great photographer! Do head over to her blog to see some more examples of her work!

Now I’d best be off to bed. I’ve got an early start tomorrow and no doubt a very full (and fun) day. So I shall talk to you all soon! 😀

    Bild nummer två kunde mycket väl ha föreställt Marianne Dashwood! Bild nummer ett också, egentligen 🙂

    Wow! Beautiful photos. You look like you’ve stepped right out of a period drama.

  3. LadyD says:

    oh I forgot to ask…the blue dress. What pattern did you use for that?

  4. Priscilla .W says:

    Lovely, simply, lovely! All of the photos are stunning. Beata is an excellent photographer and you are a wonderful model. It must have felt nice to see your portrait at the exhibit with so many curious admirers. I hope you DO have a nice time in Bath.

    Take Care,

    What a fun opportunity! I’m rather partial to the second picture. 🙂

    Thank you all! 🙂

    LadyD, for the blue dress I used a combination of several patterns, two patterns from Truly Victorian, this http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcart/product.php?productid=1&cat=1&page=1 and this http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcart/product.php?productid=10&cat=1&page=1v and an old pattern from Simplicitys that I haven’t been able to find online. But that was mostly for the base really, the rest I kinda just guessed.
