Valokuvatorstai: TOIVO – HOPE

Toivo - Heijastus

Sielunpeilin on mahdotonta heijastaa mitään, mikä ei ole sen edessä.

Tyyni järvi ei voi kuvastaa syvyydessään vuorta, puuta tai pilveä, elleivät ne ole aivan lähellä.

Valo ei voi luoda maahan esineen varjoa, ellei esinettä ole olemassa.
Mitään ei voi nähdä, kuulla tai muuten aistia, ellei sitä ole olemassa.

I thought I would not find these colors at all…

Yesterday when walking I saw this flower holder built on this house – I took a photo reference so my husband could build me one.

Well at least I can dream that he will 🙂 So lucky me – I think the colors are in this 🙂

Lets Be Wild – Spring!

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggersThis week’s Challenge is: Spring!

These are the colors of spring… yellow, green and white. Impatiently waiting for them.

This morning the temperature was -21C, so no spring for us yet.

The first signs are  dandelions popping up, the new light green of  the grass and the whiteness of cow parsley growing by the sidewalks

Nämä värit ovat haastavat minulle ja mitään ei tahtonut tulla mieleen – onneksi on konserttea ja valoshow niissä upeita. Oheiset on The Killers keikalta.

Toinen on hiukan lähempää keittiönpöydän ympärillä otettuja kuvia.

These colors were a challenge, thank god for concerts and great light shows, there are from  The Killers concert in Helsinki.

The others are taken at home …around my kitchen table.

Nature – Black and White

I’m participating in the onlineadventure travel and photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers

This week’s Challenge is: Black and White!

I find that when photographing nature in  black and white has to have good shadows and light all in balance, also I find that  graphic shapes come out looking best. Tree trunks, roads, flowers with graphic shape…here are some of my shots.
