Singapore I’ve been writing elsewhere on the web these days, being very lax about keeping this blog up to date. Apologies to those of you who come here hoping to find me as prolific as I am on a platform like Instagram (@charlene.winfred). All of my longer pieces these days live on the Fujilove website. So if you’re a Fuji …

Charlene journal Leave a Comment

I’d mentioned in my new year post that Flemming and I were going to be writing about our work on the Roaming Frame blog. It starts now, with a look back on our latest movie, Dual Vision.

We were in the country during the election, but if you didn’t turn on the TV or read the news, there were few signs of the political contention heating the wires. …

The grey ended in spectacular fashion, during my last week in Denmark. There was glorious sunshine, and Flemming and I got back to Valby (a suburb of Copenhagen where his sister, who kindly hosts us gypsies, lives) in time to catch the trees aglow in Søndermarken.
