City living

Today I commuted to work by bicycle, which was surprisingly exhausting even though I recovered fast enough. And then there were a lot of things to take care of, so I didn't have time for photography, except for a couple of hasty shots.

However, I finally got from the library a book about eagle owls, by the nature photographer Mika Honkalinna. (Book details: Suuri pöllö, published by Honkalinna in 2011.)

Nowdays these big owls live in the city, it seems that they are quite adaptable. This is a book worth studying, and I'll come back to it after a while. Also our youngest daughter got interested in the book, and wanted us to guess where the owl is in each of the photographs.

Loved the lights and shadows in the steps photo. Everyday objects can be beautiful when looked at in a different light.

@ArtyMarti: Thanks! This is the lobby of a library, where they occasionally have exhibits of photographs etc. A fitting subject for a photograph...
