Inescapable Autumn Post

This turned out more like squirrel post. And this time I was even too lazy to exit our backyard patio. Didn’t even put the shoes on!
There were originally two squirrels behind the window, when I noticed them. The other one escaped and this sweet little rascal stayed, eating bird food and ignoring me. So, here are some fall photos from from Finland, spiced with cute animals.

Next up: Italy bound!


My Home Town

Last Saturday I took part in the annual Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk. That was third time for me and I like it more and more every time. Our local photo club also offered a lecture given by a talented photo journalist. That lecture woke me up thinking of how difficult street photography actually is. Not because of the quality of the photos (or maybe a little for that too), but mainly how difficult it is to snap a photo that actually tells a story. That gets you thinking, or even laughing by still leaving room for imagination.

Here is a set of some pics I managed to snap. I don’t know if they tell any kind of story, but at least they show something about my home town Lappeenranta.


I thought that maybe I could discover some other town next year by photo walking.


Hello World!

Last weekend I gave a little time for my photography hobby. It was about -10°C outside and the trees were the prettiest. Well, it didn’t really go as smoothly as I wished. My better half was there with me and was not willing to spend time in freezing cold winter weather. So, he ended up sitting in the car most of the time while I tried to capture the beauty of finnish forest.

For me, the cold is not a problem.. haha.. I’m lying. Here’s one thing about me: I hate cold! But, there is one exception. When I’m holding my camera, somehow I don’t even feel the cold. It distracts me from it. So here are a few pics I managed to get.
