Does sending summer away look like this?


In Canada the summer is longer, or my mind is just resists to let the summer go.
Well, the days are much warmer than back at home. Summer seems stretched.
I love this.
I hate the constant packing.
Please stay.

28th of September



I think for me 28th of September, 1994 is a date I'll never forget, as American's won't 11th of September, 2001. On 1994 a ship called "Estonia" sank in the middle of the night between Estonia and Sweden. Cold sea took lives of 852 people.
Water has always have a special meaning for me and thinking of those poor people who drowned into a ice cold water made me feel really bad and still does. I was 14 when I heard the news, and started to get ready to go to school, as I switched on radio and realized something terrible like that has happened. I couldn't believe it. After the terrible news they played Sophie B. Hawkins' "Right beside you" and if you have seen its video then you know how connected the music and the accident really are.


Taking a moment to think of those Estonians, Swedes, Finns and other nationalities.

Windows of a skyscraper


Well, who can count the windows of a skyscraper really.
Toronto is full of these. Both, windows and skyscrapers.
Who could count the lives behind the windows, whether exposed or hidden.
Such buildings are break-through in architecture.
Wow.

Mini-Rock girl



That is one of the oldest photographs in my folder of blog photographs - 16th of December 2008. Wow! So it cried: "Post me, post me!!!".
Here you go a girl from Estonia, from the country of the prettiest girls. Which I doubt, but the beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

How Esto boys dance


Okay, I haven't seen how the Canadian boys (or girls) dance, except some crazy exceptions, but for many years I was exposed to how Estonian boys (and girls) dance.

One of the best samples can be seen here.


Yeah-yeah.

Barn swallows


These little fast and sharp birds made me think of home. They are not so pure in colors, than the Estonian national bird is, but still pretty close. In here they are called barn swallows, as this is where they mostly are living. They are very helpful while reducing the amount of mosquitoes during the summer, very handy creatures.

Niagara Falls

This is the smaller American version







and this is the bigger Canadian version.



Okay, of course it was an experience to go there, especially so close to a huge shower, which splashing the mist hundreds of meters away. It was very powerful and most of the times you couldn't see much because there was cloud of mist everywhere. When I looked up to see the edge where the water breaks, it made me think of those ten and ten people who took a risk of going over or down of the fall.

I must admit I liked the American, smaller, calmer, cuter version more, as it was possible to photograph it. But Niagara is still Niagara, the Niagara we are thinking of, it doesn't matter if it is American or Canadian, as it is still one place in one continent.

Johanna - electro princess



I haven't ever seen a 5 year old girl dancing like that. I have seen black little boys dancing crazy dances in the States, but this girl was something. She is a born disco/electro dancer!

Solomon R. Guggenheim


I started today going through of 100 most influential, famous and ....something else, buildings in the world. It was complied by Time. Of course. Anyway the foreword they introduced Guggenheum museum in Bilbao, Spain. That is a one fine building indeed. They wrote that it is so shiny, that you just can't get enough or something like that........BUT it made me think the real Guggenheim museum in New York, which is a very fine building and it happens to be one of my few favorites in the world. Thank God I have seen it.


Greetings to ju es of ei.

Check out the Guggenheim in Spain, in here.

Poaceae



Okay, more Poaceae. Well, but they are very attractive subject matter and depending on an angle they can be shot interestingly. But all in all, light matters. These two were taken on the prettiest sunrise I have ever experienced in my life. Of course I got carried away and there is so much to share, so....some other time.

Guelph





Guelph. Doesn't it sound good? It is over 100 000 inhabitants university and free-spirited city. I got a very nice feeling of it, because of a wonderful Sean who is living there. He hosted me and Karolin for a night and we had fun in the evening, at night and the next day. Maybe I didn't see much about Guelph, but the warm way Sean was hosting us and shared his stories about the city made me feel very special about the place. He showed us some wonderful location's in the city and it felt like walking in a secret place.

More to come.

In bloom



Children in bloom cooking in the sun
Waiting for a room of our own
Leave my sister alone
She don't deserve this
She is a flower and I am a flower and
We are all alone

Land Fill Art Full



I have always enjoyed taking photos in events such as exhibition openings, fashion galas or gourmet evenings. You could say that I even have some experiences. When you are used to do something it is not easy to see a sparkle that would make your eyes glow and smile on your face. That happened to me in the opening of Carolyn Butts' exhibition Land Fill Art Full. It felt to take photos as the photos look like - warm, hazy, sharp and colorful. Looking at these it makes me wonder that these are not mine photos, but thank God they really are :)

Tiniest tiny


I have always loved tiny cute things, as something you can see on this photo. But this is the tiniest I have ever seen. It was 1 cm or so long. How cute is that???? I used to collect such little creatures when I was younger, but getting older and more practical I didn't see point of this, but I still like them and every now and then I get one or two additions to my collection.
I know a woman in Ottawa, who has custom made closet for all her little animals, tokens and such. Things are spread over nearly 15 shelves, so you can see how different cultures, materials and emotions mix. I will make a closet like this for myself one day.

Raccoon mom


Do you remember this? This is a bigger version of the same creature. This mother was captured in the wild cats cage in the center of Ottawa, just left from the Parliament Building.

Indoor nature


I do not want to think that nature is only what is outdoor. Though I think it is the right way of thinking. But we, people, sometimes create a little piece of nature indoors, too. We grow tiny plants which will grow big one day, so big that we have to take them outside, where it gets one with the outdoor nature....anyway, I am sure this thought is stupid, but I like the fact that we can add more to nature if we do it the right way.
