Winter Mood

Winter mood by Jere Ketola on 500px.com

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!

 

 

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.

Toward the unknown by Jere Ketola on 500px.com

Sorry to have been awfully quiet lately. Too much to do at work, and lousy Finnish autumn weather has been making it a bit difficult to enjoy the outdoors lately. Wish I was back in south Europe once more. Or maybe the snow will come and make everything beautiful here in Helsinki as well.

These views could not differiate much more from what we have here. Dry, hard light, warmth. A totally different atmosphere to the weather here currently.

I have been gravitating more and more towards monochrome in the photos I take, be it due to the bleakness of the nature or some other reason, I do not know.

 

Outcrop

The Finnish summer has been one of rain and coldness. All in all, so far only 4 days which coul be categorized as warm days. Most of the time the temperature has been hovering under the +20 C mark and rain has been almost an everyday visitor. A huge contrast to the weather in most of Europe this summer.

This photo was taken in  the rain, that was so strong you could not see the otherside of the lake. In the photo it shows, but only barely.

Gasoline for the mind

Coffee, that most important of beverages.

day 133

Sometimes, more often than not, it seems that one is a bit tired and needs something to reinvigorate the mind. Coffee to the rescue that to me is the primary solution.

I do know that coffee only helps for a while but still associated with the fact that it lets the mind relax and gives a bit of energy it helps me to focus.
