The technique of demonstration

I got ten hours of exercise in five days, quite a lot, and I forgot to take magnesium so my leg muscles are cramping. During January I rode the bicycle for 256 kilometers. It has been slippery, but the studded winter tires work fine.

That sea we see of surfaces

I'm feeling tired, probably because I have been getting a lot of exercise recently, eight hours in four days. Or maybe it is due to a lot of things happening.

The photographs were taken on January 13th, when we got some new snow.

Or can proportion of the outward part

These photographs are non-square, which is for me much less common than using the 1:1 aspect ratio. All taken in Nuuksio on January 11th.

I got yesterday almost four hours of exercise, two riding the bicycle, 1 1/4 hours walking between meetings, and half an hour shoveling snow. I thought I would be very hungry today, but it wasn't so. Also, muscles were not cramping, which was a surprise. But maybe that happens tomorrow.

I got today some new accessories for the LX100, a UV filter and a CPL filter, both 43 mm. I'm using the UV filter to protect the lens, and luckily the string for the lens cover is just enough for the added length. The CPL filter I'm not yet putting to test, but during summer it will be useful for taking photographs of water.
