The Accidental Photographer

Welcome to my blog. The idea is to share some random photos and maybe some thoughts.

It has been a lazy week in photography for me. I am looking forward to next wednesday when I head to Bretagne with Salme. If the coast there is not inspiring then I think nothing will be.

Here's a photo I shot today. I gave it a sepia toning in Photoshop. It was done with duotone which I find a very useful tool. I just don't know how to use it properly. In this one the tones turned out really nice.

We haven't had much of a winter this year. But from the beginning of March we've had the most snow this year and at some points the see has frozen. That is quite strange because usually March means the beginning of the spring. I wonder if this has something to do with the climate change or is it just coincidence. I suspect the latter because I wouldn't think the climate change to be this dramatic. Rather I think it will be more gradual over the years. Not +10 degrees in a year.

Fresh Water

The tap water in Helsinki is very good. It is brought from the Lake Päijänne via a tunnel. Next month the tunnel will be closed for maintenance and we will be drinking this. Water from the River Vantaa. Looks delicious.
