Spring light. Comes from an angle more often than not.

Small and almost pocketable. The 1 inch sensor cameras are really good nowadays. And every generation is better and better.

Watercolor

Watecolor XX by Jere Ketola on 500px.com

For over a year now, I have been slowly, but steadily, building a small series of photos. A series that I call Watercolor, as the look I aim for is a bit painterly and all to do with how water looks, what it reflects and so on.

 

 

Waiting for the rain to stop

After a whole day of rain, it is refreshing to walk in the nearest forest and just enjoy the nature slowly waking up after a long winter season. Finally it is spring.

Winter minimalism

This winter has been, perhaps busier than ever. I have had a few rare opportunities to photograph, with my day work taking so much time and most importantly, energy. Photography has been in part a therapy away from that. But that therapy requires only taking photos, it does not require or indeed always necessitate the sharing of said photos. The little activeness on that part has been on the easy to use platform that is instagram, not on wordpress.

And to counterpart it, the male Bearded Reedling a true Angry bird if there ever was one.

These little birds are very fun to photograph and observe and it was a great pleasure to be able to do it this winter as it requires a bit off a special weather.

 

 

 

Living with the Honor 8

As is often the case it takes a while to get to know a device and really be able to enjoy the full cabalities.
Having used the Honor 8 for a while it seems I have gelled with phone and it is an extension of me when out and about. 

I have really fallen for the monochrome cabality esoecially as it seems I sometimes see in black and white.

Walking, working and generally living in the capital region of Finland it has always been a habit of mine to document life and its beautiful moments.

The beautiful light in this city, the architecture, the people. Especially in the fall and spring the light is almost constantly in such a low degree that it casts beautiful shadows.

Indoors in Helsinki you can see the lovely architecture, this photo taken in a library testifies of that.

Or you can enjoy the lovely seaside in many places, often gazing upon fellow Finns basking in the sun, enjoying the calm serene moments of life. And the camera, the phone, always along for the ride.
