Wednesday Vignette – control

IMG_8251

There is something really powerful, yet peaceful, about this photo – last year’s field stubble, cut with impressive precision. If this image tells me anything, it is to try to stay on track – which is easier said than done. Jet lag has turned my brain to mush – at least temporarily. The photo was shot a couple of weeks ago, in Sweden.

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!

  1. Powerful indeed Anna. Glad you’re home safe, mushy brain and all.

    My WV is the opposite of yours, not control but rather chaos.

      Mushy indeed. I had just unpacked, when I realized I had to pack again, to go to Seattle for the NWFGS. It was fun of course, but I’m still un-mushing. 🙂

    Welcome back, Anna! I hope we’ll see more photos from your trip when you’re rested and your head’s back in its time zone.

      Oh, you will… I tried to find you on FB before I left but couldn’t find you. 😦 I posted more photos there, but will probably put together my best ones in a blog post soon.

  3. It’s always touching to see a working field like this; reminds us how connected we are to the earth on whom we rely for food, water…our basic needs! Lovely field and great symmetry.
    I have just read an interesting book by an entomologist, The Fly Trap, Fredrik Sjoberg. It’s a personal memoir. Very good and funny. link: http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/jun/14/fredrik-sjoberg-hoverflies-the-fly-trap

    Thanks – I will. I’m getting really tired of waking up at 4 am… 🙂

    I couldn’t comment on “Cheap Thrill” from your post on my email, so I back-tracked. You and I should hang out. I would have been giggling, too.

      Haha – you know, I’m still all jet lagged and discombobulated. I posted WV last night, went to bed, and then – a few minutes later – realized it was Monday!!! So, I got up again, and deleted it. But yeah, it would be fun to hang out! 🙂
