SILENTLY DRAWN





















“Let yourself be silently drawn 
by the strange pull of what you really love. 
It will not lead you astray.”

FOR A GREY DAY




















































some moods from my shoot for nougat
earlier this autumn. 
a day that stretched from morning
til the last rays of light
in an excited frenzy,
every limb tired in a happy  kind of way
at the end of the day. 
today, this set serves as a note to self
to light up some candles
& soak up these november greys.

A THOUSAND VERSIONS OF YOU




















You have shed a thousand skins
to become the person you are today.
And if you ever feel overwhelmed
by the many people you once were,
remember,
your bones have grown,
but what makes them has never changed.

Nikita Gill



Image taken at a workshop
by Dasha Pears this weekend.
My head is sort of bursting by its seams
with a jumble of images, thoughts,
 and a dose of constructive criticism. 
Like I need to land a little
and stare into space for a while
like my ethereal model Minna here
with her luminous skin.
Wrapping up for the day yesterday,
window light landed softly on her skin
& in all its simplicity,
I think this became my favourite shot.

TURKU WEEKEND


































































We spent a weekend in Turku,
where despite the chilly late autumn weather,
it was quite easy to lose oneself
in the atmosphere.  
was my main aim,
but we also enjoyed the Aboa Vetus museum,
food halls, cafés 
(it's the little things that make a wanderer happy,
like how at Café Art
they gave each of us a hot chocolate
with a different floating pattern :)) 
and fish market
that sprawled on either side of the river.
Newlyweds dripping with joy
stepped out from the Cathedral.
The tiny Välikatu "in between" street
had clearly done a runner from Stockholm's Gamla Stan,
and somewhere along the riverbank 
I imagined myself in Amsterdam. 
As dusk descended,
the cafés and restaurants 
were bustling with people & chatter. 





Lokakuun viimasta huolimatta
oli Turusta helppo raaputtaa tunnelmaa. 
Päätärppinä minulla Helene Schjerfbeck taidemuseossa,
mutta viihdyttiin myös Aboa Vetuksessa,
kauppahallissa, kahviloissa
(ne on ne pienet ylimääräiset eleet,
jotka ilahduttavat vaeltajan mieltä,
kuten se, kun Café Artissa
sai jokainen meistä kaakaonsa eri kuviolla :)),
joen molemmin puolin levittäytyneillä silakkamarkkinoilla.
Tuomiokirkosta asteli iloa säteilevä pari.
Pikkuinen Välikatu
kuin karannut Tukholman Gamla stanista,
jossain kohtaa joenvartta kuvittelin 
häivähdyksen Amsterdamia.  
Pimenevässä syysillassa kuppilat
täynnä ihmisiä ja puheensorinaa.

ALL WE HAVE SEEN

PALAIS DES PAPES


















My hardrive is bursting with pics from France
from the summer,
and I figured now would be the time
to start pouring some more of them
over here. 
Well into October now,
it's strange how quickly you forget
the sun on the skin,
melting that lavender ice cream you just bought
over your fingers... 



We visited Avignon quite a few times,
welcomed by the sight of 
that famous Pont Saint-Bénézet bridge
that abruptly comes to a halt in the middle of the Rhône
with only four of its arches remaining today. 


is a sight in itself...
It has grand proportions
but is simple & pared-down at the same time. 
















































After a day out,
it was always a treat
to return to our hideaway,
as the crickets were in the middle 
of their evening concert,
and the three dogs
ran up to eagerly meet us.
