There are many terms for this

The photographs were taken at Vuorela on July 24th.

I have take a couple of thousand photographs with the new LX100 camera. The new LX100 feels different than the old LX100, which was worn out. Even the shutter sound is a bit different, not so sleepy. The controls work flawlessly, which feels a bit strange as I had got used to non-responsiveness and other quirks.

It is great to have a camera without a problem of having lots of dust inside the lens. However, I have still some photographs taken with the old LX100 waiting for processing, blemished with dust spots.

The end is limited by light

The photographs were taken at Ritoniemi in Kuopio on July 23rd.

This morning I walked in Vaakkoi, and got only two deer fly, probably because of strong wind. In six days I have got 13 hours of exercise, eight hours riding the bicycle and five hours walking. I think I'll rest tomorrow.

Cunningly conscious that I am aware

The photographs were taken at Ritoniemi in Kuopio on July 23rd. There were no other people on the beach when we walked on it.

I rode the bicycle this week for 180 km. This morning it rained a lot, and I got soaked. The long-sleeve shirt, gloves and shoes were still wet at the end of the work day, which wasn't so nice when riding the bicycle back home.
