Ever imagining the dire, the sudden

On September 27th I walked in the northeast parts of Sipoonkorpi National Park. In the beginning there was some sunshine, but then clouds covered the sky. The limitations of the Nokia E7 camera are clearly to be seen in the photographs; also, I was somewhat impatient to really get into taking photographs.

Update: You find some rather interesting discussion about the so-called full-focus-cameras such as the one in the Nokia E7 here. The processing done in the lens unit of the camera is unpredictable, and depending on the situation, the camera can provide either good or unusable results.

Update 2: I just realized I wrote a posting about the E7 camera three years ago.

And made a string of pictures of the world

The best thing said to me today was this: "You are a lucky gentleman, sir!"

We keep records of our observations in a private code

I'm feeling, well, somewhat blurry, don't know which way to be. In fact it feels like a Friday, there has been so much going on already this week.

We got a little bit of snow today. I commuted by bicycle. In some places the road was slippery, but mostly it was quite all right.
