My Magic Hour..
I remember those daybreaks after long party nights with my friends. We’re on our way home, as one of points to the sky “wow look at that sky today!” before my eyes fall shut and I wake up in my bed hours later questioning how I manage to get there safe.
My golden hours as day turns to night are usually spent during summer, somewhere at the Krumme Lanke while laughing with my friends and we forget ourselves, before we notice it has suddenly been dark for more than hour. And we get ready to skinny dip. There’s the moment of freedom and carelessness in that magic hour and the sky, God’s painting, corresponds.
Inspired by the documentary “This is my magic hour” that shines a light on the city during the most gorgeous hours of the day through the eyes of photographer Jasper James, I set out the capture my outfit in my new HUB Footwear shoes during that exact time of the day. I felt so determined to wear my HUB Footwears out and capture them in that magic light.
And let me tell you after two miserably failed attempts (waking up at 4am in the morning and driving to lost places in Berlin in the bitter morning dew cold included !!) and checking the weather forecast every single night for a bit more than the past two weeks I’m happy to finally have some pictures. Berlin this month has been really tough. Cloudy every single day, allowing none of the magic of the golden hour to happen.
But these “fails” came with an experience. I learned never take those unforeseen moments for granted anymore. When the sky is lit purple and red or the sun shines golden, when the sky suddenly looks so picture perfect and tumblr-esque and I find myself admiring mother nature’s gifts, I will let the world around me stop for a second longer. Cherish it a little more.
And remember those moments..
