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.
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).
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:
This is one of the many areas with trails in Nuuksio. To find out how to get there, go HERE. If you are interested in other interpretations of the theme “Through My Eyes“, click HERE.
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.
I think it’s rather sweet.
But I’m selling it anyway. My friend pointed out that I can have either craft supplies or vintage goodies all over my apartment and alas, choices had to made.
You know what I love. Lapland! My every visit to Lapland begins with…
Rovaniemi train station. I believe it was around 9 o’clock in the morning. Straight out of the sleeper train. Why do I visit Rovaniemi the every chance I get? Because there is:
Lovely nature. This little heart shaped tree stump is sitting in my uncle’s yard. Those red berries are lingonberries and when made into jam, is delicious with reindeer meat. Guess who is writing this text hungry?
My grandpa. Here with my youngest cousin Antti. During my other cousin’s Confirmation. Yes, there have been a lot of Confirmation parties in past few years in my family.
Grandma and cousin Jonna. Two of my favourite people. When I returned to Finland, Jonna said (after seeing my butt cleavage. I had gained weight) that “Oh my god what your a** looks like!” She was 5. And yes, those were her EXACT words. Gotta love the Lappish honesty.
And last but not least…Midnight in August in Simojärvi, Lapland:
Lapland is awesome.
