A tiny bright blue butterfly sat on my finger. I wanted to take a picture of her but she sat on the same hand that was holding the camera and she wouldn’t leave. I talked to her for a while and I drifted into a make believe that she actually listened to what I said....

There were three free tables in the café. I saw them from the door when I stepped in. I was going have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper. It was my favorite café. They had big mugs instead of those small coffee cups that you find at most places around here. I had...

I met an Asian woman here in Finland in January. She said that it seems like everything is dead around here. ‘No wonder’, I thought, but went looking for signs of life. On the first day I left it too late. It was dark. I looked right and there were only the stars and the moon,...

Years pass by quickly, for me the previous one in particular. Life has tried to pull me to other directions besides photography, but I’ve decided to fight it, and since last summer I have had the opportunity to reconnect with my camera. I have had this blog for eight years now, and to start the...

There is something special in the leisure hours of a lazy Sunday. There is no hurry, the time and the turning of the wheels of the world seem to have ceased altogether. If you listen very carefully, the noises of Monday or Tuesday have disappeared. There are only the comforting, happy and soft sounds of...

I am fascinated with the difference between exact, objective observations versus subjective interpretations. As the old saying goes, for some the glass is half full and for others half empty. But it goes so much further than just being either optimist or pessimist. Maybe you have also had that discussion once where you can’t decide...

2013 turned out to be a very busy year for me, with lots of new challenges outside photography. I am most grateful for having been able to find time to continue taking photos despite the tight schedules. What I do regret is that I haven’t been able to follow other people’s work as much as...

It has been a long autumn. There is still hardly any snow and it’s already dark at three in the afternoon. I’ve just finished marking all the exams, ready to start grading at daybreak tomorrow. Gradually all things seem to come together once again. All the individual threads that I have been following for months...
