Mustavalkomaanantai: Jokapäiväinen | B&W Monday: Everyday

B&W Monday's theme is everyday - to shoot a photo of something you do or something you use every single day. Mirror, mirror on the wall... I guess most people look themselves in the mirror at least once a day, for introspection and approval. To see a reflection of yourself is arguably a need as old as the human race.

Photo Thursday: Who digs another a hole, falls in himself

Mustavalkomaanantai: Koristeellinen | B&W Monday: Ornamental

Such an adorable and thought-provoking theme for B&W Monday - decorative, ornamental. Interesting to see how the others have interpreted this challenge.

Photo Thursday: Setting sun

Could be the sun, the moon, waves, sand... depends how you want to see it. Somehow this image came into my mind while tasting the words of Photo Thursday's challenge, quoting:

Aurinko laski. Se oli tehnyt pitkän päivätyön ja oli väsynyt. Kuu kipusi vuorostaan taivaalle ja jäi sinne oranssisena möhkäleenä. Ilta illalta sen valo oli vain voimistunut. Nyt se oli täysi, ja vain kuin ihmeen avulla se tuntui pysyvän veden yllä. Se oli kuin lyhty tai valtava karnevaalipallo, ja se hehkui ja näytti siltä kuin siitä olisi sinkoillut kipunoita tyynen veden pintaan. Laaja hiekkaranta oli hiljainen. Merja Otava, Priska (1959; WSOY 2001 : 5.)

Art work by nature and my father - my joy was to photograph...

Music at your fingertips

Weekly macro challenges to shoot your favourite thing indoors. Music is one of my greatest passions. Not only playing an instrument but also looking at musical notation is a pure pleasure.

Mustavalkomaanantai: Yksin | B&W Monday: Alone

As soon as I saw this week's theme for B&W Monday, I couldn't help but think about this image. It's taken a couple of years back in Berlin. The sculpture is by Käthe Kollwitz, Mother with her Dead Son, located in Neue Wache.
