Book of poems: Solitary Journey

I’ve collected some of my English poems into a book, illustrated by some of my photos, mostly from travels. If you like you can browse through it or even order your own copy.

A House of One’s Own

A House of One's Own

Almost a century ago, Virginia Woolf pointed out that for a woman to write, and write well, she needs a steady income, time on her hands and a room of her own. One might argue that Sweden of 2011 is a quite different world than London of 1928, yet there are parallells to be drawn. […]

Portraits of strangers

The photography class I’m taking is quite challenging, which I guess is a good thing. The first week our assignments were to take photos of moving vehicles with different shutter speeds and then to follow their movement and see the difference. Also to try different focal lengths/aperture. Two assignments that were along the lines of […]

Photos from our wedding

It’s here! The slideshow with talented wedding photographer Anna Roström/Smallpigart‘s portraits of Kalle and me, taken just before the wedding ceremony on July 3. Here’s the slideshow. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a way to embed it, so I’ll just put some of the pics here.

IPhone photo contest - help me pick a pic

Yesterday I got invited to join the staff of Lärarnas tidning on a visit to the new photo museum in Stockholm – Fotografiska. We got a guided tour of the museum and the two Andy Warhol exhibits that were on (photos by Christopher Makos and Ronald Nameth). Annica, the editor in chief, also announced an […]

On Citizen Media Watch

I’ve incorporated my posts from Citizen Media Watch, a blog on citizen journalism/citizen media I started in November 2006, into lottaholmstrom.se. You can find them under “CMW Archives” in the menu, and of course if you use the site seach. Gitta Wilén, who became my CMW blogging partner in November 2008, and I have discontinued […]

lottaholmstrom.se and my blogging history

As you can see, if you’ve visited my blog before, it’s got a new name, a new look, a new address. I thought it was about time to switch to a domain and a name that is a bit easier than lotta.skriva.net and Araneida’s web. The latter has been the name of my personal blog […]

En månad idag

Idag fyller Linus en månad. Det är inte klokt hur fort tiden går. Han har vuxit till 58,7 cm och väger 4896 gram (i onsdags). Redan ser hans händer och fötter större ut, och han har vuxit ur sina första plagg. Nu har jag plockat fram kläderna i storlek 62, även om de flesta 56:orna […]

One week old

Today Linus turned a week old, and it feels like he’s been living with us for much longer than that. Already it’s hard to imagine life without him. Today he lost the remainder of his umbilical cord. His left eye is still clogging up because of a narrow tear canal, so we’re trying to keep […]

Linus is here!

On July 29 at 00.35 I gave birth to a baby boy. Finally! Now we’ve been home for a day, and right now he’s asleep on our bed, looking very peaceful. It’s amazing how much love you can feel for a person you’ve only known for four days. His full name is Linus Anders Willard […]
