Sydney ~2

We were rather tired the first day so we walked a bit, some street shots of Sydney few days before Xmas. Our first day and it was raining.

Sydney ~1

We were greeted in Sydney with this happy dude called Doug and  kids of Leo entertaining the crowd by singing. So here are few street photos from George street. I was sitting on a bench as this little kid slept in his dads arms while mom was doing Xmas shopping. The pretty lady across the street just caught my eye.

 

Hello, long time no see

It has been a while since I updated anything. I had a lovely trip to Australia, I took so, so, so many photos that I don’t know what to do with them. Editing and trying to post them in some kind of order… I’m stuck, but here is one as I do have to start somewhere. We visited Sydney and had a look  Queen Victoria Building . Rather beautiful shopping center. Amazing thing is, I did not buy anything.

How to survive November~29

Almost over, November the grayest month of all. Darkness is so strong, but there has been few nice sunsets too. Here is one witnessed at a small boat pier. Looking the other way you saw sunset and on the other moon rising.

How to survive November ~11

Sunday was one more bleak day. Since we got home early this morning, we slept late. The joys of not having small children. Then we decorated. A new wallpaper did wonders to this room. I don’t know if I am trendy or not, but it is new and different. Our cats enjoy the flowers I bought

How to survive November ~10

Pets, big or small to give you affection. Odin came on my lap to have a nap at my friends party. I got to enjoy some views from the 16th floor and nice beverages during the evening… no complaining on this November night

 

How to survive November 2018~1

It is that time of the year again that survival is definitely on my mind. The all consuming darkness drains me. I will survive, I have sunshine on the horizon in December. Most likely most of my photos will be by my mobile as the darkness does not really invite you to take photos unless you are in a city. I do not often go to Helsinki, but the day we got the first snow, not officially, it melted ½ hour before it could have been mentioned as first snow. I saw it and for me it was the first snow of the season. I have to admit I was not thrilled about it.  Helsinki railway station in the evening is what I will share as my first post for November.

Autumn Vibes ~22

Driving from Porkkala in the afternoon we passed this field with the woods in the background  and a river with deep blue water. This sight appealed to me, mostly due to the light, the low light if autumn is beautiful. The lone walker on the road also caught my attention.

This has once been a great and huge shed. Even the ruins in the condition they are in at the moment are impressive,  at least to me.   After marveling it from the ceiling  I walked inside and what did I see, have a look at the large perspective, details will follow.

This has once been a great and huge shed. Even the ruins in the condition they are in at the moment are impressive,  at least to me.   After marveling it from the ground I walked up to the second floor… no ceiling left, but you can see how huge it has been.
