WIndow view of green

I was looking for a specific photo, by the way; I did not find it, instead of that this popped up. The old glass in the window makes the woods hace a rippled effect, very artistic with out any editing.

I can hardly wait until we have this green surroundings again. All this white… enough

Old Window

Something I noticed #27

Something I noticed, the beautiful light coming in, the white curtains and tablecloth. the window view is not the most spectacular one, but many times that is the case.

Still, I hope you are enjoying it anyway.

White tablecloth is not trending at the moment 🙂

Simplicity is the theme in this one, I think.

Something I noticed #26

Something I noticed, the beautiful light coming in, the white curtain, and green walls to match the colors on the other side of the window, hope you are enjoying the same sight now.

I also did a black and white version as the contrast and light kind of demanded me to do so, you know what I mean. 🙂 This time the color one appeals to me more.

Something I noticed #12

Window, I know again. Just something I noticed and really liked.

Three takes color, and then two black and white ones with different exposures and contrast.

The darkest version is my favorite. That was not hard to guess, it think 🙂

Something I noticed #9

Doors, windows. Looking in or out, discovery of something or just a door or a window. Just something I noticed.

Something I noticed #8

Window view. Looking out, and it looks so nice. Just something I noticed.

Old buildings

I am still on vacation, but decided to do one quick post. I took these images yesterday at Taidekeskus Salmela in Mäntyharju, Finland. The have every summer have rather large art exhibitions located in several old buildings, we finally went this summer. The milieu was lovely. These are from that … I even by accident met the Tuomas Hoikkala who is a patron of arts and a saxophonist, If I’d known I would have asked; how about me… for next year 🙂

We are having some heavy duty rain at the moment, I woke up couple times in the early morning hours to the sound of it. Luckily I fell asleep again quickly to an odd dream. These ones are taken from my car while waiting for my hubby to come back from the store which I had no desire to go to.


We have had a slight setback in Spring, the forecast is predicting snow to some areas of Finland, here we just have cool temperature and rain to look forward to. Well, it is what it is. When the warm weather returns we can enjoyed it even more. You really learn to appreciate nice weather when you don’t have year round.

Tinka was longingly looking out of the window, for some reason the photo looks like it was a drawing… must be the old glass we have in the windows and that I took the photo at dusk. Veikka was equally disappointed for not being able to be outside during the daytime.

How to survive November 2020-22

Still life

I sat next to this window all weekend, the window needs some fixing, but for photography purposes it was great. The cracked paint on the frame was art.

Stil life

Frozen flowers is one of my ideas to create a monotype, this did not happen, this weekend was just trying to learn the technique, and even that is not totally absorbed, don’t know if it is the right work for this, but hope you get the drift. Now I know at least what tools to bring to the next session also time for few ideas to “brew” in my mind.

These are my first attempts with this medium, not all that grand, but I will post them here so they will remain as a memory in my blog.

Have Yourself a
Merry Little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yule-tide gay
From now on
our troubles will be miles away

Here were are as in olden days
happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Frost art by Nature

I so enjoyed taking these photos, looking at the windows full of frost flowers, trees, japanese art… and trying to find the small details that appealed to my sense of beauty, capture them.  Here is the last set for now

Looking out

I took this photo of a man looking out from a window following the life below, BW or Color? Which one do you like better?
