Time for a Two Two Two again, and today seems to be mostly about elevators and mirrors. Some days just are like that, right?
Okay, let's go:
Two from the funky elevator of my friends apartment building: One with kisses, and one with sunglasses. You have to choose you know. You can't have both.
Two from a little midnight filming:
One in the elevator with David's fabulously constructed IKEA dustbin/tinfoil lamp, and one from our basement that looks extra scary in the middle of the night.
Two self portraits taken with the TimerCam app:
One showing off my extremely pale legs that never before had seen the sun, and one where I'm sporting my new (and extremely purple) bike shorts.
This last one needs a little more explaining, I think, so I'm stealing the text I wrote on my instagram
"I'm calling this one 'Philosofical in bike shorts' Remember the horrid bike shorts era? Well, for me it's more a sake of having intact inner thighs than a fashion statement. Because of the extreme heat wave here in Sweden I've had to succumb and leave my beloved tights at home. Yesterday I went on a bike shorts hunt and apparently I'm not the only one with evil inner thighs in war with eachother because the shorts were sold out in every single store except for the sports store. So now I'm a hot pink bike shorts kind of gal. Who would've thought!"
It's been more than a week of internet madness and I longed for some regular blogging again. I haven't been taking a lot of photos lately, my camera has been collecting dust and my phone is filled with screen dumps of hilarious/sweet/amazing/stupid/weird/awesome comments from all over the internet regarding Lights Out. I might return with another post like the one I did last tuesday
Lights Out has now gone so viral that we no longer have any clue of it's life in cyberspace. It's making friends with (and scaring the hell out of) people all over the world. I've mentioned the Reaction Videos
before but OMG it's such a wonderful thing! Even though some are made in languages that we don't understand a word of the beauty with this kind of film (horror) is that the facial expressions are universal. A scared jump and a loud scream is like the biggest present to us. Yes, creepy, I know but it really is the perfect way of seeing that our work is affecting people.
Everything is still happening so fast that we have no clue of what, and if, this will lead to anything in the future, but THANK YOU internet for doing this crazy thing and changing our lives in so many ways.
Back on track now! I know there's a lot of new people here and Two Two Two is one of the recurring kind of posts I make on this blog.
Let's start then, shall we?
Two views of Gothenburg.
One that I took today while in town, and one from an evening run over the cemetery close to where David and I live.
Two of me when I was just a cute little child.
One of me on my fathers shoulders, and one of me posing for the camera like I was born to do it. (And look at that hat!) These were sent to me by our family friend Lisa who just found these slides when she was looking through old boxes. I think they are so sweet!
Two self portraits.
One looking at people on the street below.
And one in our old and noisy elevator when my hair was having an especially good day. Not like when I was the monster in Lights Out...
And for the people checking out my site for the first time: Hi! I'm Lotta, natural born red head living in Gothenburg, making jewelry
, taking photos
, making movies and writing scripts with my husband
, acting in a theatre group
, being an expert on popping popcorn in a pan and making the perfect pot of tea, getting very excited of the small things in life, dreaming of one million things and mixing it all into what is me.
Two of Gothenburg in between seasons.
One afternoon with bright light and fresh air, and one early evening running on a rainy wet cemetery.
Two photos of work for lottalosten.com.
One editing the photos you saw in this post
, and one sitting at a café working with my Strangers
Two of me in my grandmothers old suede coat.
One in the elevator on my way home and one on the season premiere of wearing sunglasses!
This coat has been hanging in my wardrobe over ten years and I haven't used it that much for some reason. But this spring I fell in love with it all over again. It has these short trumpet sleeves that makes it a bit cold on my wrists but the coat itself is quite warm so it's an inbetween seasons coat and that has been perfect for the Gothenburg weather lately.
But I think I can safely say that spring is here now! Yaay!
It's not everyday you wake up, throw on some clothes and go outside to meet up with someone to borrow a rake...
