Hi everyone! How’s your life? Busy, happy, sad? My life is good, as busy as I want/need it to be… If I have too many projects and start feeling…uneasy, I try to calm down/choose what is most important… Important is… We’re having a short holiday in Spain
Tree The photograph was taken on April 15th. The weather forecast for the next week looks promising: dry and sunny weather, 5 °C in the morning and 15 °C in the afternoon. Commuting by bicycle should be a pleasure. (Posting title is from the poem A Red Tricycle in the Belly of the Pool by Karyna McGlynn.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/
Waking up this morning I was surprised to see that the flag was hoisted outside my window and I began to wonder what the reason for the flagging was.To my awe I found out it was not printed in neither one of my calendars, and I do have two printed Finnish calendars, so turning to the news made me wiser. Today is an optional flagging day, that means it is only recommended to flag and not
I won the 2017 Spring Cup. It was the second time I won the tournament, the last time being in Spring 2015. No money for the winner, but a much more valuable (in my eyes) painting that he gets to keep until the next tournament. This painting has been around since the 1990's and has the name of the winner of each cup written on the back of it. A truly historic piece of memorabilia. I'm relieved to have won it back as my apartment is in desperate need of some decoration! Group Stages Petri...
Snow 1 Snow 2 Snow 3 The photographs were taken on April 30th. Looking at the United States, one must wonder about the mafia-type structures which are becoming more and more apparent. Trump is completely immersed in this rot and dirtiness, as well as the Republican Party. Where is the land of freedom and opportunity these days? Another thing which is apparent about the corruption is how the United States has turned away from the motto "In God We Trust". Trump and his minions, as well as the...

Blue 1 Blue 2 The photographs were taken on April 30th. It is getting colder. Today we had 17 °C in the afternoon, and for tomorrow the weather forecast promises 14 °C. Well, at least it isn't too hot for commuting by bicycle. (Posting title is from the poem Duncan by Thom Gunn.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/
Spring is here and it is time to have breakfast at the patio.
KKvintagehaaste avautui jälleen aiheenaan Pariisin kevät. Inostuin tekemään kolmen kortin sarjan. Siinä esiintyvät aikakautensa muodikkaat pariisittaret. Fleur lähti kävelylle: Hän on jostain syystä harmistunut nuoriin: Ja täältä löytyy oikeaa (pariisilais)asennetta: Osallistua voi koko kuukauden. Hop-hop!
Hauskaa lauantaita, tervetuloa Allsorts haaste en pariin! Aiheena kevään kukat tai kevätsateet! Kevään kukkana helmihyasintti ja tein kolme erilaista korttia, simppelin, peruskortin ja runsaasti koristellun. Kerro mielipiteesi, mikä sinusta on kaunein? Hi; Happy Saturday, it's time for a new Allsorts Challenge ! Spring Flowers and/or Spring Showers is the theme of lovely DT Ellie this week. My favourite spring flower is grape hyasinth, I have them a lot in my cottage garden. I made...
Yhtäkkiä aurinko lämmittää yhä enemmän ja enemmän. Mieli fiilistelee jo kesää ja vaatekaappiin eksyy kevyempiä vaatteita. Aurinkorasvakin löytyy kylmempien kuukausien jälkeen peilikaapista, itse tykkään SunBumin rasvoista, varsinkin tämä 30spf tuoksuu ihanalle banaanille. Itse olen todella tarkka aurinkorasvasta ja olen tietoisesti myös vältellyt aurinkoa nyt muutaman kuukauden että iho saisi edes hetken rauhaa ainaiselta porotukselta. Täällä […]
Tosi mukava nähdä kun viimein aurinkokin paistaa! Ja tätähän ollaan odoteltu, eikä kadutkaan, ainakaan täälläpäin, ole enää edes loskaisia! Kohta saa vetäistä kevätpopoja jalkaan, joita olenkin metsästellyt jo aika kasan komeroihini.(voisin lähiakoina esitellä niitä) Mutta sitä ennen esittelen uudet aurinkolasini, jotka nappasin mukaan H&M:ältä eilen:) Elikkä nämä tarttui mukaan. Tuollaisia valkoisia olen jo halunnut pidempäänkin. Hintaa löytyi 5,90, sekä ruskeat...
Flower 1 Flower 2 Flower 3 Flower 4 Flower 5 The photographs were taken on June 4th. I took almost 5,000 photographs while traveling to Lapland. I have imported the photographs to the iMac, but it will take some time to go through them, especially as I had almost 2,000 photographs already waiting for processing.

Anemone The photograph was taken on May 7th in Petikko. It is really quite extraordinary that a stupid and dangerous clown is acting as the President of the United States. One shudders what can happen when a man with so diminutive capabilities, without any compassion, needs to make decisions. There is no other way to save the planet than to #resist.

Red Gray The photographs were taken in Petikko on May 7th. Chaos seems to be in charge in the United States. The leaders of the Republican Party say "In God We Trust", but the God they worship is an evil one, reflecting the evil within themselves.

Field 1 Field 2 The photographs were taken at Sipoonkorpi on May 25th with an iPhone SE. Today I didn't get wet when riding the bicycle. There was an intense hail shower with thunder, but that happened before I started commuting back home.

Blue 1 Blue 2 Blue 3 The photographs were taken at Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor area in Hyvinkää on May 13th. Today the temperature rose to 22 °C in the afternoon. There was 8 m/s backwind when commuting by bicycle. Sometimes it is just too easy. (Posting title is from the poem Democracy by Dorianne Laux.)

Blue 1 Blue 2 The photographs were taken on May 6th. I have taken over 52,000 photographs with the second Panasonic LX100, but I'm lagging behind with the processing. Today there are over 4,000 photographs waiting. (Posting title is from the poem Bean Spasms by Ted Berrigan.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/
Blue 1 Blue 2 Blue 3 The photographs were taken on May 7th in Petikko. Last week I got 11 hours of exercise, most of it when commuting by bicycle. I took a rest day on Saturday. Today it felt good to ride the bicycle, even though it was raining in the afternoon. I admire the attitude of the British people in their approach to terrorism. During the weekend I reserved flights and hotel rooms for visiting London with the children during the summer vacation. We'll spend almost a week there, but it...
Modern kitchen with spring touch by sisustusheinia featuring glass bottles Tässä on muutama keittiötyyli joista tykkään. Maustemyllytki voivat olla kauniita ja osa sisustusta. Boskken Skyplanterit ovat vaan niin yksinkertaisen nättejä ja käteviä jättäessään pöytätilaa muulle käytölle. Kaiken kruunaa lattian kuviointi.
Jumaliste! BOB ei näköjään ole ainut, joka on kevään mittaan ns. polttanut päreensä yliopistouudistajien päähänpistoille. Tosin nyt kun aurinko paistaa, voi polttolasin alle asettaa jo muutakin kuin yliopistotoimintaa väheksyvät kaikenmaailman “kuuskasien” nostalgisoijat. Yrityksen saaman tiedon mukaan päreensä polttaneiden tummaan joukkoon on liittynyt myös valkolakkimatriarkka Minna Canth. Minna tosin tarvitsi hiukan auttavaa kättä. (Kuollut kuin kivi, […]
Forest 1 Forest 2 The photographs were taken at Luukki on May 1st. This morning the temperature was 6 °C when I commuted by bicycle, and I needed to use winter clothing. On the way home there was a hail shower. (Posting title is from the song "Liar Liar" by Captain SKA.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/
Frog The photograph was taken in Luukki on May 6th. Today the temperature was 3 °C in the morning and 8 °C in the afternoon. When riding the bicycle back home there was strong headwind, 12 m/s, and in gusts up to 18 m/s. The road was littered by twigs and branches fallen from trees. It seems that Trump has three main activities (between the tweets): obey commands from Putin and Russia (and their minions and collaborators) grab pots of money (preferably while playing golf) destroy the federal...
Snow 1 Snow 2 Snow 3 The photographs were taken in Petikko on April 30th. In five days I got 11 1/2 hours of exercise, enjoying the landscape of late spring and early summer. Today I'm planning to take it a little easier. During the winter my weight got up 5 kg, but now it is coming nicely down again. Yesterday I wrote about the danger and stupidity of Trump and his administration. When I woke up this morning and read the news about Jared Kushner and the back-channel to Kremlin, I wasn't...
Today I heard the loud thuds of snow falling off the roof onto the windowsill. To me, that is one of the first signs of spring, even though we may still have to trample in snow for a few more … Continue reading →
Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken on January 1st, 2018. I commuted by bicycle today, but it was slow going because there was 5-10 cm of new snow on the road. It took 65 minutes to get to work, and the same time back home. (Posting title is from the poem Water Water Water Wind Water by Juan Felipe Herrera.)
