Is the blues the moment

The photographs were taken in Helsinki on March 31st using an iPhone SE. I have taken a couple of hundred photographs with it, and even though the photographs mostly turn out quite all right, taking the photographs doesn't feel as natural as with the Panasonic LX100. But perhaps it is just a matter of practice.

My oldest daughter has been abroad for over five weeks, as an exchange student, learning the language and local customs. She seems to be thriving. Communication is a bit challenging due to the seven-hour time difference.

Could render magical

The photograph was taken while visiting Timmermalmi nature protection area on April 1st.

During winter the bicycle commute took 55 minutes or more, but now it is faster, about 45 minutes. However, this morning there was ice on the road, and in the afternoon 2 cm of hail covered the ground, painting the landscape white.

Out in the middle of the poem

What can one say of the big fool with tiny hands? #resist
