a few of my favourite cellphone pictures from these last couple of weeks.a sad note: the shutter unit on my Nikon FM has stopped functioning completely - it already had a few difficulties with the fastest shutter speeds. I am upset because that means that one of my favourite cameras will be out for repair and I won't be able to use it for a while. good news is that the repairman has promised to fix it by the 14th of June: it sounds like a long time to me but at least I will be able to take it along on our summer trip - we are going somewhere really special this time and I cannot imagine leaving without my Nikon FM!

bits of spring via instagram.
spring in Finland is a matter of two or three weeks: it is the shortest and probably the most intense season of all. once the snow melts the ground is brown and the trees are bare like in autumn: it seems like colours are taking a long time to come while suddenly the first flowers appear and - just a few days after - everything looks green and beautiful. these days I walk around Helsinki and I cannot help but marvel at all the joyful things that spring has brought back to town once again: I have missed the chirping of little birds in the forest and the crying of seagulls at sea. I just cannot take enough photographs - I wish spring could last longer!
