LIGHT SEEKERS















I was browsing through a tutorial on something or another,
when two words describing photographers
bounced off the page –

’light seekers’, ’seekers of light’...

just love all the meanings and double meanings
disguised in those words.

This Easter time the light has appeared,
in every sense of the word.
Not just having to desperately seek,
but a chance to delicately tread in that light.

Momentary light finders.

EASTER FRAGMENTS






























No huge plans for this little Easter break,

but looking forward to just whiling away a bit,

laying low with my little spring flu,

eating well (without forgetting the power of chocolate of course)

and seeing The Grand Budapest Hotel with a friend. 

Wishing you a bright, light Easter time!










Pienistä iloista ajattelin täällä revitellä,

nauttia miehen loihtimasta lammasateriasta, suklaasta,

Grand Hotel Budapestin näkemisestä ystävän kanssa,

valosta ja ajasta. 

Onnellista pääsiäisaikaa toivottelen teille kaikille!

INTO THE SOUL











































... isn't it incredible that, like music,

 someone's lens

has the power to point you into its depths?

AVEILLAN











































Back home after getting the chance

to play in a studio for a couple of days

- a whole new playing field

to slowly start finding my feet in. 

Pinching myself as the train was homeward-bound

and ploughing through faded fields,

for getting to throw myself

into what I love

and having a whole bunch of new people

to have fun with and learn from

at the same time.

A sense of direction

and support that's so uplifting.



 ☁






But today it's a slow, drizzly Sunday

and I've got myself into a state of mesmerisation

over Bruno Aveillan's photography.

I simply adore his world 

of softness, subtleness,

marriage of light and shadows.

He's also a creator

of the most ravishing video imagery -














With these I want to wish you

a touch of beauty and magic this Sunday.

TENDER STARLIGHT






























For the past week it's felt

as if the days were running through my fingers,

fleeting moments

without much focus or clarity. 

But an underlying tenderness and lightness I guess

behind all the fragmented threads of thought. 

Tying up projects,

getting ready for those to come, 

and jumping on that train again at the end of the week. 

Wishing you plenty of starlight and softness

in the middle of everyday life as you know it.

LIKE CHALK AND SPRING























A few snippets from our excursion last weekend

to a salvage yard in Billnäs 

and the idyllic village of Fiskars,

about an hour's drive west of Helsinki. 

Realising how long it had been 

since the last time we'd all bundled up in the car

and headed somewhere for the day

just for the fun of it. 

Despite the chalky hues in this post,




- enough so that it called for an emergency stop

at the garden centre on the way home.








Have a lovely weekend!

HEAD ABOVE WATER
























It's been a whirl of a March,

but my head is finally above

a pile of work, trips and family stuff. 

And my studies started,

the best thing of all. 

The words are still few and far apart,

but images are spinning in my head.

And a weekend mood is here,

how I've missed that feeling.

Light & Love everyone!
