picspam ahoy

So I spent last week wandering around Helsinki with [livejournal.com profile] kupukello, eating reindeer and salty liquorice (not together), drinking vodka at -20°C, picking blueberries, getting sunburned at 10pm, oogling boys on the metro, being assaulted by squirrels and taking too many photos. Well, that sums more or less everything...

Just a few pictures (for now) for you all!














not f-locked, but won't stay this way long!

I wish I had HALF your talent with a camera. It's sad that you don't get paid to share these lovely photos with us, but THANK YOU for posting them and giving me something wonderful to appreciate!!

These, my dear, are just gorgeous!! I love your eye and how you can take ordinary things and make them seem magical somehow. I wish I had your talent!

Will there be more? *hint hint nudge nudge*

BTW, I got your postcard today!! Whoohoo! Thank you for remembering me.

Of course there will be more! But my main computer is broken and it's a little awkard to process all 200+ photos with the little one...
You're welcome!

Gorgeous! And would you believe, I just got your postcard today? Thank you!

Now I need to hurry and email my mom and tell her to come over here and take a look at your photos, before you f-lock.

You're welcome!
I'm glad you like the photos and don't worry, I won't f-lock them so soon, I'll leave them up at least a week and then resize and watermark for my website.

The bird, and the spinner, and the balls and the bike! You have an eye for the beauty in the everyday things!

I got my postcard today. You are a doll! Thank you. I'm glad you had a great time. and yes... oogling is FUN!

Hugs

I'm so glad you got the postcard! The bird was following us everywhere but to shy to come closer (some tits instead were way too bold and picked up the food from my hands)

Wow! The snow leopard picture is simply WOW!!! I recognize all the others, but where was the number 5 picture taken?

I've been wracking my brain about the shy bird (it's the one in the picture, right?). It doesn't quite look like a robin, the beak doesn't match, but I can't figure out just WHAT it is! It could also be a baby bird of some kind, too, but what, I really don't know!

[identity profile] frostdoll.livejournal.com 2007-07-24 06:35 am (UTC)(link)
The number 5 was taken somewhere around the Big White Church, the kindergarten's playground and the red building with the owls at the top of the hill behind it (Physiology you said?), that part of town anyway...

Yep, that's the shy bird, wasn't it cute?

Hey, I think I found out what it could be! I'm sure 100% it belongs to the finches family, it might be a young chaffinch because I have a chaffinch photo I took at the graveyard (you never thought that a graveyard would be such an hit, didn't you?) and while the colourings are quite different the markings on the wings look quite similar...

It could very well be! Great detective work, there :D

(Did you go to the Jewish cemetery? That's the most beautiful of them all :D)

Gorgeous photos! Second row, right side - I love that bird. And the photo below it with the clouds is really dramatic.
