Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

Frame defines our view and make some features stand out more clearly. Here are the picks for last week’s photo challenge.

Here are a couple of frames from Dubrovnik. It looks so pretty and so bright in the cold grey frame of the city wall:

And this one is from Lake Tahoe. It’s wonderful to wake up to a view like this:


Have a nice week, everyone! Happy September 🙂


Weekly Photo Challenge: Narrow

This week’s task is to share photos with our take on “narrow.

When I think of “narrow”, streets of old towns in Europe comes to mind first.

Here is one of the streets in Tallinn:


Or this one in Stockholm:


It also reminded me about narrow tranches around the old fortress of Lappeenranta:


And the narrow dome of Sagrada Familia in Barcelona:


And the narrow strips of land along the ocean all the way down 101 road in California:


Have a nice week, everyone! Hope you enjoyed this collection of images featuring “narrow” topic 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge – Curve

Weekly photo challenge is a new exercise in improving my photography skills and imagination. Every week I’ll be posting photos in response to a prompt. Let’s see where this challenge takes me 🙂

This week’s prompt is curve. I think it’s in human nature to prefer and to chose simple things over complicated. Same goes for photography. Straight lines are easy to spot and to capture. Curves are trickier. They take more space, they tend to look different on the photo compare to how you see it in a real life. Also, they are much more fun to deal with 🙂

The first curve photo is from Helsinki, Finland. A lot of old houses in Helsinki have a name. This one is from Tehtaankatu, and its name is Koivu, which means a birch tree. It was built in 1904, and designed by Paul Björk.


And the second curve is from Rio de Janeiro. We were on our way to the top of the mountain and about to see the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer, while breathtaking views opened on the left and on the right. It’s hard to not go full crazy and start taking photos of everything you see 🙂


Spring in Helsinki!

Hi all,

I know I’ve been silent for a while, and I’m sorry. I was mostly being busy with getting over flu. Take vitamins and drink lots of tea, everyone, as you want to be ready to enjoy spring when it finally settles in!

The weather outside is just marvelous! It’s still quite chilly, but so sunny that it reminds me of California.

I’m already feeling way better, and took a photo stroll today to share with you what’s going on in this beautiful city right now. Enjoy the photos of Helsinki drowning in sunshine 🙂 Hyvää päivänjätkoa!
