    Vive La Différence – The Wilderness

    November 12, 2012

    Greetings everyone! Yes, yes, yes, vive la différence is back, exactly after a month and will continue to do so…. the next guest blogger is already lined up!

    For new readers:

    The concept: each month I will invite one blogger. They will create and showcase one image/vignette. There are 20 themes and 20 objects for my guest to choose from. They choose 1 theme and up to 3 objects. I will then create an image/vignette based on their choice. Everyone has free reign on how to create the image. It can be simple photography, a drawing, a collage, a hand-painted image, a styled table top… the choice is yours! The fun part is that you, my readers, will see 2 versions inspired by the same subject matter. There is no right or wrong. There’s just ‘different’.

    Oh, what can i say? We have a gentleman! I think that is actually the right description for my guest blogger today.

    Let me introduce you to Igor from Does he need an introduction? Nah, not really:) Igor is one of the happiest people i know and his blog is a true reflection of his personality. I know many of you are excited to see a man take part in this series, so without further ado, let me show you today’s submission.

    Igor chose the theme of The Wilderness together with the following objects: Cushion, Crockery and Fabrics. Here’s his description:

    On chilly, foggy saturday mornings in autumn, I like to imagine the wilderness out there. Dark green forests, snow capped mountains, a deep blue lake and a wooden hut. Glazing through the window with a mug of hot, freshly brewed coffee that enchants my senses. A real autumn morning in the wilderness. Instead, i find myself in bed, leaned against my linen pillow in a grey hue like the grey autumn sky, snuggled into my green throw like a wild forest and clinging to my favorite mug with hot, steamy coffee. What a great morning.

    I am imagining a night spent in the wilderness (ok, maybe in a luxurious yurt)! Deer running in the background, a bonfire, eating some delicious simple food (wilderness survival food is stretching it a bit:) talking to wise men and taking in the simplicity of beautiful nature! Far away from technology and the rush of city living this imaginary scenario would do wonders for a mindful meditation.

    Well, i hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s theme, got some inspiration and once again discovered that there is no right or wrong but just our own interpretations. I would like to thank igor for being brave and starting off the ‘male’ submissions. I hope there will be many more in the future. For those who haven’t yet signed up to do this, feel free to add your names in the comments. 

    As ever, i’ve had a blast and can’t wait for the next one, scheduled for monday 10th december. I hope you all have a great week and i’ll see you back here on thursday!
