Faded skies and a restless heart.

I had very little time off this Summer, but I did get to take my annual trip to Öland in late August. A couple of my closest friends and I decided to go on an impromptu road trip down South to Öland, an island on the East coast of Sweden. Some of my friends were born there, and I used to vacation there as a kid, so this sort of nostalgic escapade has become a recurring event for us. This year was no different and I had a blast reliving childhood memories, cooking amazing food with local produce and spending some needed quality time with my gang. But more than anything else I enjoyed photographing the landscape, barren and blooming at the same. This trip really encapsulated Swedish Summer for me, and I will return to this memory whenever I need to be reminded that warm evenings and pastell skies are not just a dream in this country, but a brief and bittersweet seasonal reality. - Emily
