Monsoon season, one of the essentials of life in the tropics does make life difficult for a photographer. This young gentleman was very happy nonetheless and as our eyes met he smiled and I raised my camera and here we have the result.
IT is holiday season in Finland. Therefore I have been away, visiting some lovely places. I will probably writr a couple of different posts on this when I have had the time to transfer my photos to the computer which I left home so as to really enjoy holiday.
As luck would have it I live in the capital of our fair country with excellent connections to the world. No need to drive for hours on end to get to the airport. This also means that almost all European capitals are just a quick hop away. With the advent of Norwegian and Ryanair et al its also relatively cheap to fly nowadays. I still tend to favor Lufthansa and Finnair when possible but usually the destination plays a part in the chosen form of transportation as well.
Want to take a guess where all of the photos in this post were taken?
Summer seems to get the best out of us Finns. Love is in the air so to speak.
Lovely flower placement creating a heart in Kruununhaka, Helsinki
And a heart engraved into an old cannon from the sea-fortress of Suomenlinna (Sveaborg), one of the city’s prime tourist attractions.
Somehow even beautiful flowers remind me of love in the summer!
So another year has passed. A year of laughter, love, hurt and traveling with a lot of work thrown in the mix as well. Great experiences. I believe I have personally grown as a human and I think that is greatly due to the people in my life.
And now a new year to do so much more and hopefully see even more.
Lets look forward and be positive! Be dynamic and live life to the fullest, for life is a precious thing.
Photography is a matter of perspective. We all see the world differently. Walking with another photographer shows this very nicely. At the end of the day, both have captured different things and views, yet have moved from a to b the same path.
This small alley caught my eye and especially the light which was pouring through.
Just a quick snap photo of a very common bird. They are fun to watch because of their constant movement and energy. Sort of ADHD bird..
