Rhythem – my search for it

Rytmi – haasteessa oli tarkoitus löytää rytmiä valokuva kohteista. Ohessa minun rytmini, on jazzia, marssimusiikkia sekä hip hoppia…

Rhythm – the challenge was to find a rhythm in the photography subjects.. Here is my visual rhythms, , the jazz, marching music, and hip hop .

Minun yhteys maailmaan vahvistuu aaltojen rytmistä  ( pienistä laineista tai aallokosta)

… Onnellisuudessa  ei ole kyse intensiteetistä vaan tasapainosta ja järjestyksen ja rytmin ja harmonian välillä.

My connection to the earth is reinforced through the rhythm of the waves, (small waves or the surf)

  Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony.

Peaceful

In this week’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge, we’re challenging bloggers to get outside & photograph things in nature which make them feel peaceful!

I do not like winter,but  it is beautiful now that the snow has arrived to brighten the few hours of light we have here in the north, this scenery is peaceful in spite the fact that it’s freezing.

Mustaa ja Valkoista #140

Tällä kertaa haastankin kaikki etsimään kuvauskohteeksi jotain valmiiksi/luonnostaan mustavalkoista,

eli kuvaa ei saa olla käsitelty mustavalkoiseksi, eikä sitä saa ottaa kameran mustavalkoasetuksilla! 

This time, I challenge all to find a subject that is already / naturally black and white,

 the image should not be treated black and white, and will not be allowed to take black and white camera settings!

Yesterday a dream came true.

I had my first art exhibition and I was so taken by the positive feedback I got and the people who came to share this special day with me.
