Last day of 2016

* Fall in love with moments*


I woke up on December 31st with insane desire to photograph again, after I haven't had any time to do so over the last couple of months. My Canon went everywhere with me but it stayed in its bag the whole time. Oh well, that's what life on set looks like - no time for anything other than the story you're directing.

But that morning I knew what needed to be done.
How I wanted to say goodbye to this roller coaster of the year.
So I picked up a lonely camera and decided to take shots of some special little moments throughout the day.
This is it.


Sibenik was so quiet, like the city streets knew that some sort of a new beginning was approaching. My best friend Branka and I decided to take a long walk and to enjoy the atmosphere of the last hours of 2016.

We didn't talk about the past, we didn't mention anything bad that has happened and while some band was playing a terrible cover of my beloved Cohen's Hallelujah, the two of us talked about the future. About wishes, hopes, dreams and plans. And seeing one of my closest people ever so happy and hopeful, I couldn't have felt anything other than pure happiness itself.


After one obligatory outfit snap and too many selfies, we went on an endless quest for my favourite champagne but unfortunately couldn't find it ANYWHERE so we bought a bottle of Coke instead. And then came that time of a day when the first episode of my BONTON tv series was hitting the air so we headed back to my place to watch it and to raise a few glasses to celebrate the official start of the project I deeply love and care about.

You can find first two episodes on HRTi and new ones will be added daily (unfortunately there are no english subtitles) so you can check them out and let me know which one is your favourite :) 


* You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously *

  1. Koji prekrasan fotografski dnevnik! Svaka fotografije je predivna i ne mogu nijednu izdvojiti. Stvarno si ispratila staru godinu u stilu. Taj neki mir na ulicama mi je možda i najdraža stvar kod ispraćanja stare i pripreme za doček nove godine. Navečer je obično ludnica, ali jutro prije i poslije je nekako mirno i blagdansko...sve se čini nekako svježe... baš volim tu neku mirnoću. Danas mi je još ta neka svježina u zraku, čak smo neki izlet organizirali nas dvoje, baš mi je dobro došlo:).

    Jedva čekam vidjeti ostale episode. Prvu sam pogledala, drugu nisam mogla jer je dragi baš u to vrijeme spavao, pogledat ću je na internetu... ne mogu ovdje u BIH gledati HTV preko interneta, to ću napravit čim odem u Hrvatsku. Sigurna sam da su i ostale episode super!

    Sviđa mi se jako ovaj citat koji je došao kao zaključak...i slažem se sa njim.

    1. Puno ti hvala, drago mi je da ti se svidio post! I ja isto baš volim taj mir i nekakvo zatišje prije novogodišnjeg ludila, uvijek ima nečeg posebnog u toj atmosferi...Izlet za početak nove godine super zvuči, treba iskoristiti lijepo vrijeme dok još zima u potpunosti ne udari (ja sam danas došla u Zagreb, ovdje je groznooo hladno).

      I hvala ti na interesu za Bonton, sve će epizode biti na HRTi tako da u bilo kojem trenutku možeš baciti pogled, nadam se da će ti se svidjeti! :*

    2. u Mostaru je isto zahladilo...dugo nije bilo ovako hladno, eto kažu da će polarno vrijeme pogoditi cijelu Europu pa mislim da će svugdje biti malo hladnije.

  4. Sibenik does look incredibly quiet, it looks like you were the only people there! Makes for some great photographs though!

  5. Meni sve ovo deluje kao scena iz neke knjige ili filma. Šibenik je predivan, tvoje slike tek, a posebno mi se dopada taj neki mir i optimizam koji zrači kako na slikama, tako i iz tvojih reči. Bravo za tebe i BONTON! Baš sam ponosna na tebe <3
