yesterday i went to The Grotto with my mum. The Grotto is a Catholic shrine and botanical garden (although only a few flowers were blooming when we went, seeing as it's technically still winter) that's in Portland. whether or not you're Catholic (i'm not) it's a beautiful place for picture taking and relaxation. i learned a lot about Catholicism from my mum who grew up Catholic...which is kind of fitting as it was St. Patrick's Day. anyhoo, i had lots of fun taking pictures with my new camera and playing with lighting and bokeh. i can't wait until all the flowers are blooming! the various gardens that i like going to will be so pretty! i want spring to come. now, please!

- hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
