B&W Monday: Skywatching

Skywatching is a theme for B&W Monday. I wanted to share these photos in reference to a couple of things feeding my soul: sunset, cloudspotting, watching aeroplanes and their tracks, being high up, and last but not least, photographing. Check out here what other contributors have spotted from "up there".

Makroviikot: Värikäs | Weekly Macro: Colorful

Colorful is a theme for this week's outdoor macro challenge. Photographing flowers seemed like an obvious choice but today I stumbled upon to this colorful broken bucket at the old houseyard. See the other entries here.

Mustavalkomaanantai: Tunteet | B&W Monday: Emotions

B&W Monday's theme is emotions. I quite randomly chose this image I took a year ago on the Asian side of Istanbul, and thought of situations of being together but still alone. There's a feeling of distance in many ways - something is out of reach. See other contributions to the challenge here.

Makroviikot: Ylösalaisin | Weekly Macro: Upside down

Legs up for some yoga exercise! Pilli the cat helped me to contribute to this week's macro challenge with the theme upside down or backwards. Although I can't really call this one a real macro, it has to do... Check out here what the others have come up with.

Mustavalkomaanantai: Negatiivi | B&W Monday: Negative

Now this was an interesting experiment. Despite of converting many photos to black and white I've never been trying and editing a digital image to a negative before. See other contributions to B&W Monday's challenge here.

Makroviikot: Lehti | Weekly Macro: Leaf

Weekly macro challenges to shoot an outdoor photo of a leaf (or a magazine/newspaper if you like... a Finnish word lehti is polysemic). See other contributions to the challenge here.

Mustavalkomaanantai: Silta | B&W Monday: Bridge

Probably the newest bridge in Tampere, the one over Lake Särkijärvi. I took this image early June on a kayaking trip when the bridge was still unfinished. See other B&W Monday challenge photos here.

Evening fog

Foggy views tonight in Vesilahti on a way back home after spending an unforgettable evening in amazing soundscapes. Now my heart is full...

After a sublime concert at Central Square my spirits are high as is this vehicle.

From Provence

French market debuts in Tampere and offers delicacies and some other stuff at Central Square until August 15. I quickly visited the market today and will certainly pop in later again.

Mustavalkomaanantai: Erilainen kuvakulma | B&W Monday: An unusual angle

Due to being lazy I'm using an old photo for this week's B&W challenge. Here's maybe a slightly different kind of view angle to the famous steel pipes aka the Sibelius Monument, although I'm sure quite many have been taking similar images. Back in 2007 I didn't yet have a SLR but was shooting with my tiny pocket camera.
