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.
Snowy days came after the year changed. Cannot believe it s already 2017. The time seems to fly by so fast. I have changed jobs in November and it seems life is mostly Work -travel to home -sleep -travel to work -Work in tempo. Rare moments outside with a camera can be truly precious.
Hope you are having a wonderful start to the new year!

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.
Spring has come once more to this far northern land. Everywhere green seems to be sprouting out and the nature is so alive now. We have also been enjoying a rather warm may in general, with temperatures climbing over +20C.
Forests are full of flowers and the sun rises earlier and earlier and sets later and later. Soon it will be light all around the clock.
Forests have mysteries hidden in them, more often than not. Here an abandoned house in the midst of woods.

Lauttasaari and beyond into the Baltic Sea. That way is Estonia.
