HouseS - exploring new neighborhood - M U N K K I S A A R I

Since moving to Helsinki I have been eager to explore my close neighborhood by foot and camera. It is funny how things look so different on pictures than in reality. - i like more what I see in pictures, cos the things outside the frame I just can imagine.... heee..

back land,
new found land?
month has testing being,
old, new
like a meat stew
upset stomach,
rye bread,
that's just the old booze.
going to other place,
eager to taste,
new stew.
coming back,
through still life of loud life,
gives the taste of the old,
which as become the new.
welcome home
first time again.
[this was written on leaflet of Roni Horn's exhibition MY OZ at Listasafn Reykjavikur on friday (late) night, - my thoughts of moving places, ps. the exhibition was brilliant]

This week's photo challenge 59. is classic. In this picture are two "institutions" or classical things, Vanha ylioppilastalo (Old Student house) and Stockmann (Department store, Harrods of Finland, covered by scaffolding). Both have a long history and both of them are well known....

The New Old Country / Moving back to my Mother's land

It was more or less 9 years since I lived last time in my mother's land. Now I am back and it is interesting to see how much it has changed. Most of the things are positive, thou. :)

I'd managed to get an apartment from the centre of Helsinki, small but characteristic with sea view. It is quite expensive (rent), but not so much than in Reykjavik. Only problem is that I don't have much furniture due the fact that I have been mobile in my living habits and haven't invested any pesetas for decorative things and now I am eager to find some cool furniture, for example, I just found a fantastic sofa, which only costs 770 €... ( i am having internal fight between my id and alter ego to buy it or not)

Anyway, Helsinki and Finland has welcomed me and my beautiful half to enjoy this wonderland.. - and hey, Finland has four seasons, beautiful white winter, warm summer, blooming spring and melancholic autumn, aahh, my camera just waits to get out and take pictures.... heee...

Photo thursday challenge 57 / valokuvatorstai haaste

The challenge of this week was to shoot a picture at 11pm sharp 1st of September, where every you physically were. So I was in a smoke sauna having a morning swett. - The smoke sauna keeps the heat for long time, for example, if it has been heated up previous day then you can still enjoy really comfortable time in next morning... (this time I didn't go swim at the sea after sauna.... the water is getting colder)
