Acceptable female objects or are statues the only acceptable form of females? Silent and never changing? Thoughts?
When I read (like 30 minutes ago) that this week’s theme is ‘Grand’, I got super-excited. Why, you may ask. Weeelllll, I recently visited Paris and I’m more than keen to share some of the images from there.
I started to ponder about the angle I was going to use. Art, buildings, general feeling…Then it hit me. I’d go the literal route. So here it is…
A grand staircase at the Petit Palais:
Beautiful, isn’t it? If you are interested in the other interpretations, click HERE.
Thrifty Finn- Ooh la laa
I haven’t taken part in a photo challenge for ages and thought it was about a time. However, my still missing camera cable still hasn’t turned up so my plans got kinda busted right there.
No worries though. My godfather is a keen amateur photographer and he has tons of beautiful photos, just begging to be shared. These pics are from his fishing trip on last May (?) to Finland-Norway border.
(I apologize in advance for the overuse of vignette-filter on Pixlr. My bad.)
You certainly have privacy and peace and quiet up there.
Apparently that man is a bonafide reindeer farmer. They exist!
I love the smell of campfire. And last but not least, a slightly artsy shot:
My godfather has tons of pictures he has taken on his hunting and fishing trips, not to mention the shots taken at his summer cabin. I already suggested that he should start his own photo blog but a little couragement wouldn’t go amiss So, tell your opinion in the comments and I’ll be sure to pass them on. (Naturally I already advertised WordPress as the superior blogging platform :D).
Thrifty Finn- Feeling all supportive and generous
I like this week’s challenge so much that I decided to do a part two. Couple of days ago I visited Nuuksio National Park for the FIRST TIME EVER. I knew about it’s existance, it’s not that far from my place and I often wondered what kind of place it would be. And now I know. It’s beautiful. Judge for yourself:
Thrifty Finn- All about things outdoorsy.
Edited to add: Earlier a today, a woman was kidnapped in Nuuksio. She was taken away in a car but managed to escape about 50 kilometers away, on the road to Porvoo. Now I’m slightly creeped out.
Well this isn’t really recently thrifted but spoils from my trip to the huge flea market in Vantaa back in November. I bought this tray together with a vintage hat box and some Christmas decorations for a reasonable price.
Wish me luck that it will sell quickly.
