Artist signs at various museums in Paris. They are delightful little things. Someone made a living painting them. Was he on the museum’s pay roll or perhaps an independent contractor? “François, hurry up will you?”

You can find more interpretations of this week’s theme HERE. If you want to see all of my challenge entries, they are HERE.

Halloween Nighttime: Weekly Photo Challenge

Few years back I hand cut this creepy Halloween village. I got blisters, peeps. The village is now gone, it was one of the decorations that got stolen from my storage and the bookshelf I gave away two years ago too. All I have left is these photos.

Nighttime in Finnish summer. Taken on 29th of July with my Samsung. I posted it on Instagram back then and it’s my most liked photo. I think it’s my personal favourite too. And no, there’s no filter used on this.

This is the part where you can call Finland insanely beautiful ;)

Sometimes I wonder how much really has changed for women. It seems that our lot is just to endure whatever men and powers to be throw at us. It has always been this way and will be so for the unforeseeable future unless we actually start doing something about it.

This week’s photo challenge theme is ‘Endurance‘. Rest of the interpretations can be found HERE. My earlier challenge entries are HERE.

Humanity: Weekly Photo Challenge

Humans are rather clever creatures. Eons ago someone figured how to control fire. No more shivering and being afraid in the dark. The darkness could be pushed away! Eons ago someone decided to co-operate with some of the friendlier wolves and now we have dogs! Eons ago they worshipped fat ladies and made dildos! Eons ago they knew how to live!

Oh, how many great things have humans figured out. There must have been first person to use something we would call make-up, after losing a mate to the Urgh in the neighbouring cave. Tools! Did the first hammer user curse as much as we do today after hitting one’s own finger?

All those small discoveries made with the help of large cranium and opposable thumbs became all the fantastic things we call arts and sciences. We truly are a special species among species. There’s just one slight design flaw that ruins it all…
