Axe

100 for 100: 90 – Axe with Deckchair

11 Days to 100th Year: 90/100 – Axe with Deckchair This is another shot from my recent visit to my mother-in-law’s place just outside Turku and, like every other Finn living in the countryside, there’s always at least one axe...

Trestle

100 for 100: 89 – Trestle Tables and...

12 Days to 100th Year: 89/100 – Trestle Tables and Stool I very nearly ended up titling this post ‘A Study in Grey’ but decided that would be a bit much. I’d taken the ferry to Suomenlinna and was just wandering around...

Sweets

100 for 100: 88 – Classic Sweets at...

13 Days to 100th Year: 88/100 – Classic Sweets at Fazer I was walking by Karl Fazer cafe the other day and just had to pop in to look around to see if they had done anything special for the xmas festivities. Popular with tourists and...

Washing line

100 for 100: 87 – Washing Line and...

14 Days to 100th Year: 87/100 – The Washing Line and the Stone Wall The title pretty much says it all. Understandably, the washing line is not seeing much action in the middle of winter but I thought it would be worth pointing out a...

Heart

100 for 100: 86 – My Baking Heart

15 Days to 100th Year: 86/100 – My Baking Heart It’s the final weekend before xmas. Time to bring out the pastry dough, the cookie cutters from out the back of the cupboard, and turn the oven right up. A little bit of flour...

Barn

100 for 100: 85 – Wooden Barn with...

16 Days to 100th Year: 85/100 – Wooden Barn with Metal I came across this barn on a cold, clear morning when out walking with the kids. The sun has not risen above the treetops yet but the clear blue sky is reflected in the corrugated...

Apples

100 for 100: 84 – Rotten Apples on Ice

17 Days to 100th Year: 84/100 – Rotten Apples on Ice Yes, there are definitely a few rotten apples out there but, in the right light and crusted in ice, they can still look quite appealing. Just remember to keep the rotten apples out of...

Bales

100 for 100: 83 – Hay Bales, Side View

18 Days to 100th Year: 83/100 – Hay Bales, Side View The same hay bales as yesterday, this time from the side. The sun has just managed to get high enough to hit the tops of the trees, the mist is rolling in in the background, the...

Hay

100 for 100: 82 – Hay Bales at Xmas

19 Days to 100th Year: 82/100 – Hay Bales at Xmas Take the city boy into the countryside and look what happens, he starts taking photos of xmas trees and hay bales right outside his mother-in-law’s front door. She has learnt to...

Anchor

100 for 100: 81 – Blue Anchor on Red...

20 Days to 100th Year: 81/100 – Blue Anchor on Red Shed I so enjoyed my previous walk on Seurasaari that I went back there with my partner on another glorious winter’s day for more of the same. Blue skies, temperature of minus...
