Light Scrape -

Field The photograph was taken on October 22nd. In the morning there was heavy headwind, up to 16 m/s, and commuting by bicycle took an hour. During the day we got 6 cm of snow, and it turned into slush. There was strong backwind, which helped, and it took an hour to get home.

Leaf 1 Leaf 2 The photographs were taken on October 22nd. The snow from yesterday was melting today, but in the afternoon we got new snow. The studded winter tires were once again necessary when riding the bicycle. The length of day is now 6 hours 57 minutes. (Posting title is from the poem Chekhov by Howard Moss.)

View 1 View 2 The photographs were taken on October 21st. In the morning the depth of snow was 4 cm, and in the afternoon 2 cm, due to melting. Commuting by bicycle was otherwise ok but when big wet snowflakes were falling and hit the eyes, visibility got poor. The studded winter tires provided plenty of grip.

Leaves The photograph was taken on October 21st. Today was a wet day, and there was snow and rain. I commuted by car and train, which was pleasant. It some point in the middle of day it wasn't quite so dark, but there was no hint of sun. (Posting title is from the poem Cabin by Anne Waldman.)

Susannas Travels -

Cattolica, Riminin lomakohteen lähellä. Bussi ajoi vihreää maaseutua saapuen tähän rantakylään. Kesällä on tietysti turistitungosta ja ravintoloissa kallista, mutta myös halpakauppoja löytyy ja lapsille on paljon leikkipaikkoja ja lelukauppoja. Syksyä kohden tulee hiljaisempaa ja ainakin osa majoituksista suljetaan, tosin syksyllä voi löytää kesää edullisemman majoituksen. Lapsia on tässä kohteessa ajateltu ja moni tänne suuntaava kesäturisti olikin joko koira tai...

Sukututkijan loppuvuosi -

Elena Favillin ja Francesca Cavallon kirja Iltasatuja kapinallisille tytöille. 100 tarinaa ihmeellisistä naisista tuli eteeni Twitterissä Taas tuli kiire #KirjamessutHKI -tuliaisten kanssa.

Street The photograph was taken on October 20th in Petikko. Today is a rainy day. In the morning I looked at the weather radar, and it seemed that the rain would be a little bit easier for an hour or so, so I went for a walk, and got quite soaked. The swamps and ditches are flooding, and water level is high in the lakes. I need to do some repairs to the bicycle. The front tire is leaking air pressure, and I need to replace the inner tube. I'm using Marathon Winter tires, which have puncture...

Sun The photograph was taken on October 20th in Petikko. This morning I walked for two hours, enjoying the early morning landscape. There was some frost and ice, and a little bit of fog in the open fields. I met a man who wanted to say a few words. He warned that there is black ice on the road, dangerous for those who use rubber boots. Then he asked if I had some money to give to him. And then he quoted Bible and told that Donald Trump is working with the Israelis against the Israelis, hinting...

Tree The photograph was taken on October 20th. It rained this morning, and there was strong headwind when commuting by bicycle. In the afternoon there was partial headwind, but the rain had stopped. In five days I got 10 hours of exercise even though I took one rest day when I commuted by car and train. It is remarkable how Donald Trump's cabinet members fit the stereotype of villains in old James Bond movies. They are crazy, and they crab things. (Posting title is from the poem The Villain by...

Lake The photograph was taken in Vaakkoi on October 18th, at lake Saaren-Musta. In three days I have got 7 1/2 hours of exercise. This morning there was black ice on the road, and I wondered why the studded winter tires are so silent, until I realized: "It's the ice, stupid!"

The very first glimpse of my 'Artist of the Month' wall at Gallery Becker. We first painted the wall with Tuija the gallery coordinator, then I had a lovely sushi lunch, before hanging ten small prints on the wall. This just might be one of those growing exhibitions... I still have another ten prints almost finished, maybe I'll add them to this set during November. What a nice day we've had. (I still have to visit post office, but otherwise I think my workday is finished.) #workdiary...

so far so good; its november and 8-12c outside, yet we don't need heating every day all day. and when i turn the heating on, its just the living room. even with this, we pay 125£ monthly for electricity, although of course it also includes everything else from washing machine to water heater (there is a massive water tank in a closet). but i dont really want us to pay any more than that...yet i want to live in warm household which is very unbritish. but its looking promising. when going...

View The photograph was taken in Luukki on October 17th. This morning I walked two hours, exploring nearby forests and swamps. The swamps and ditches are flooding, because of rain and melted snow. The water level is higher than it was last spring. (Posting title is from the poem Dead Man’s Dump by Isaac Rosenberg.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Lake The photograph was taken in Luukki by lake Kaitalampi on October 17th. I commuted by bicycle on five days this week, getting 9 1/2 hours of exercise. So far this year I have got 5,631 km of riding the bicycle. By the end of the year I should get over 6,000 km, but I won't reach 6,500 km which I got last year.

Lake The photograph was taken in Luukki by lake Kaitalampi on October 17th. The length of day is now less than 8 hours, which means that we are really in the dark season. The day will shorten to less than six hours, but then it will start brightening again. (Posting title is from the poem A Nocturnal upon St. Lucy's Day by John Donne.)

View 1 View 2 View 3 The photographs were taken at Malminkartano hill in Helsinki on October 16th. There were some local elections in the USA, and Trump and his minions lost bigly.

Steps 1 Steps 2 The photographs were taken at Malminkartano hill in Helsinki on October 16th. Temperature dropped below 0 °C during the night, and there were some icy spots on the road. To help those who walk, gravel has been spread in some places to cope with slippery conditions, but for riding the bicycle this is bad.

Hurja remontti-rysäys on ollut täällä päällä koko lokakuun että tästäpä syystä on ollut hiljaista hetkisen. Tämä on taas sellainen klassinen tapaus että kun puretaan yksi huone, onkin pakko purkaa toinen huone ja sitten remontti hassuun tapaan, laajeni öhöm, vielä kolmanteen huoneeseen. Mutta tästä lisää pian! Homma lähti käyntiin aseman alakerran vessan purkamisella, joka oli odottanut aika kauan sen kimppuun ehtimistä sekä meidän luottokorjaajan, Hirsiberian Ville...

Red The photograph was taken on October 16th. In a previous posting I wrote: "I thought about stereotypes, for example the feeling that many people from the USA are not really grown up even though they may look like adults." One thing which fits this stereotype extreme well is gun ownership. Only people who haven't grown up can allow such a lax attitude to guns as is the case in the USA.

I have been riding the bicycle through the central park in Helsinki, as the paths are no longer so muddy. I met a horse this morning, which was a nice start for the day.
