“När alla vännerna gått hem
och festen är slut för länge sen”
New Year’s parties are mostly a thing of the past for me (we have a cosy night in with the dogs instead), but I remember how melancholy they used to make me. Actually, “melancholy” doesn’t quite capture it for me, I have to resort to Swedish and “vemod”. It is closely related to melancholy and nostalgia, but with a somewhat different resonance. It specifically relates to something beautiful or enjoyable that has passed and the realisation that it won’t come back. It usually strikes right after you’ve been really happy, when you slow down a bit and reflect on things. I wanted to get across a little of that in these pictures.
