i miss Iceland and the roadtrips when all the radiostations were playing Of Monsters and Men 24/7.
In the continuing map wars, it turns out Americans don’t know anything about Europe.
i love my country
After that US map went around (which, by the way, I would have ACED) I gave my US friends a map of the UK and NOT ONE could tell me where London is. So… YAH. The wars continue.
can i be slightly offended how Finland is pretty much cut out of the map! also Iceland.

all this love we had,

It’s San Francisco, it shouldn’t be so hard to meet cool people in this town.
Anonymous asked: what do you feel about people copying your work?
Haa, this has been asked a lot the last few days, some one even sent me a side by side comparison showing my photos against some other photographer this morning. I guess it used to bother me more than it does now. I don’t get bothered at all if some one is starting out and mimics my work, that is completely flattering. There comes a point though, when I think you need to develop your own style and create work that represents you. A copied image loses all of its personal value; it becomes a technical feat rather than a personal artistic creation. I don’t really care if people copy my work anymore though. If you’re starting out and want to try to mimic a piece I did, then you should totally go for it! But creating an original style, and image that captures your inner self is so beautiful
copying other people’s work is actually a great way to learn. we did this a lot when i was studying photography. the point is not to take someones work and be hey look how original and creative i am! if that’s someone’s point then that’s just rude and pointless. but studying other people’s work and figuring out how it was done, or finding solutions to how it could be done, and then practicing that teaches you how to turn your own ideas and visions into real images. and that makes it so much easier to find your own style.
