And with his bound heart and his young eyes bent

These photographs were taken on October 6th in Helsinki. I commuted by car because of meetings, and I got stuck in a traffic jam. It took 1 1/2 hours to get home.

My car is over 15 years old, but I had something even older that was still working, namely an electric shaver, which was from the 1990s. However, two weeks ago it finally got broken. I bought a new one, one of the cheaper models. It seems to work quite all right, but I'm not convinced about the durability. The more expensive models seemed to be even worse in this regard, as they are packed with unneeded features and complicated technology.

(Posting title is from the poem After Fifty Years by William Faulkner.)
