071/2011 change

071/2011 change, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Just about recognizable still, this cute row of snowmen is fast disappearing with the more and more powerful warmth of the spring sun.

Gradual, inevitable, and welcome change as opposed to the drastic, startling and disasterous events in Japan this weekend.

#233 night rain

233/365 night rain, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Heavy showers have come down all evening. It’s really comforting to listen to the sound of the downpour, while safely dry inside.

I even went out on the balcony to enjoy the fresh smell. That’s when I noticed the rain drops glistening on the flowers in the balcony boxes. Autumn and change is definitely in the air.

#230 history on the wall

230/365 history on the wall, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

A picture inspired by Daily Shoot again:

Go meta and make a photo of a photo today. Don’t just be a copy machine, however. Get creative with composition.

History teachers have put photographs of all the Finnish presidents on the wall of one classroom. I doubt whether many of our students could name many of them – even I’m not quite sure about the older ones (and we are only talking about a short independent history of just under one century!) But these two I know well. Especially the one on the left. The longest serving Finnish president, Urho Kekkonen, or better known as UKK. He was the president all through my childhood and youth – for 25 years!

Back in those days, everything seemed to be slower and more permanent. What a contrast to the constant change of today! Also the president’s office has since been shortened to two six-year terms max. I like the way the fluorescent lights are reflected on the glass. It’s like shedding new light, and adding a modern touch on the stiff portraits of these long-gone heads of state.

#212 oh no, not yet!

212/365 oh no, not yet!, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Last day of July, and what do I see! Some yellow autumn leaves already. And there was definitely a slight whiff of autumn in the breeze this afternoon as well – or maybe I was just imagining it.

Inevitably, back to school is also creeping into my mind, as the last holiday week is about to start. I don’t feel I’m quite ready yet but I’m going to make the most of the last free days, and hope that will work wonders to get me back in the working mood again.
