I know that I know nothing about love

Here is yet another photograph taken with the Nokia E7. Shortcomings are clearly to be seen, one of them being the strange (for me) aspect ratio, which doesn't let me make compositions the way I want.

And lifted honest eyes for you to see

Well, even though I don't have the LX5 any more (or rather, my daughter has it), I have taken some photographs, using my Nokia E7 mobile phone. I'm not happy with the controls, the exposure, the colors, but still I'm using it as there is nothing else. Here is a specimen, taken in Nuuksio on September 6th. As you can see the E7 is far from square.

If you like poems about trees you’re in for a treat

Today I got plenty of surprises. But no matter, things move on.

Also, I looked further into the specifications of the Panasonic LX100, and I have a strong urge to order the camera. But only preorder is possible right now, as the camera will become available in late October or November.

Meanwhile, I guess I need to start using the Nokia E7 for taking photographs.
