Colours of Ukraine

Two Balloons

Fuji X100S : f/5.6@250th : ISO 1250  Another recently rediscovered image from the back catalogue that has added resonance now with the war in Ukraine. Living in Finland for the last twenty years, with Russia as a neighbour, it is hard to comprehend that it has come to this. For me, this image of balloons in the colours of Ukraine conveys hope, despite all the sadness.

Pink Hearts in the Bedroom

Fuji X100S : f/4@60th : ISO 1600  One of the joys of finally getting my master catalogue organised is coming across images that, for one reason or another, have never seen the light of day.

Fuji X100S : f/2.8@320th : ISO 200 : EV 0.0  An early morning walk into town, before the sun has had time to burn off the condensation on Musiikkitalo’s glass facade, has me coming face to face with a bird in flight’s sudden reality check. The ephemeral beauty of the imprint leads to thoughts on the transitory nature of existence, the fine line separating one breath from the next, hoping that this particular moment is just a temporary shift in […]

Circles of Life

Fuji X100S : f/4@60th : ISO 1000 : EV 0.0  One good thing that has come out of the pandemic is having had more than enough spare time on my hands to go through all my personal work and finally organise the thousands of images into a master catalogue. I can’t say I enjoyed the endless hours, months, sifting through old files, adding all those keywords to the selected images, importing them into the catalogue, but at least I am […]
