Street photography in Helsinki

Helsinki by day-01886-2

Street photography at Kapteeninkatu in Helsinki. The Finnish flag was Half-mast for our former President Mauno Koivisto who had passed away the day before.  I have photos in color and Monochrome, for some reason they appeal to me in street photography. What your opinion about it?

MONOCHROME MADNESS: High- for MM 3-12

It has been a long time since I took part in Monochrome Madness , I always seem to be a day late. The images there are worth looking at so have a look at the other entries too, lots of talented photographers participate in this challenge.

Here is my entry for this week, the theme was HIGH – Eiffel towel in Paris is that…I played with two images and ended up sending this highly edited version. Most of the time I want my photos to be as natural as possible, this time I chose differently,  comments?

I have been blogging for some time. In the begin I was slow getting followers, as I had no idea of what I was doing.   Them in 2014 I gained a lot of new followers, I was very active…, back then.I started to work fulltime again and surprise, surprise, it slowed down.  This spring I have gained many new followers to my surprise and joy.

I am so glad and happy for the old followers, and grateful that you still come and comment, even if I am very bad and lazy about doing it myself. Sorry about that!

I am also extremely happy for the new ones, thanks so much for the follows it means a lot to me.

I am one short for 1000 followers…anyone want to be the 1000 follower?
