Nöel street



I guess that this is no surprise if on Nöel street the Merry Christmas wreath is up for the whole 365 days....but I must confess that wreath wasn't exactly on Nöel st, but on the street which was crossing it....but still, nice coincidence.

Groundhog family










During my one month in the woods of Quebec, I got to know a family of groundhogs, who were living under the log pile by my trailer. Day first I thought that there is one just by accident, but every time, especially in the mornings, when I was quiet for a long time and I stepped outside and started sneaking towards the log pile, I could see several fur balls doing their things around it. They were very cute and very tiny and quite bold I must say. During the course of time I got to take lots of photos about them, now I am presenting the best of. Usually they are our on their own, or there was just one bolder one who stayed out longer and allowed me to sneak closer with my telephoto lens. Thanks Canon for it. On the last photo you can see four babies, there were five of them and add the mother, who you can see on the second and on the fifth photo squealing for letting the babies know that there is a stranger (me) outside, so take a hike boys and girls. Their teeth can crack wood like a piece of cake. Sometimes I spent just ten minutes looking face to face with one of these cute balls, so that my feet died....Power of animals is so deep. Hope that seeing these photos makes you feel grand emotions.

More about these lovely creatures HERE.

Mennonite cinnamon buns






This how a real cinnamon bun making looks like, done by real craftswomen - mennonite women. These are the fastest made, most delicious and huge buns ever. They do not hold back while using cinnamon, butter and dough while making these buns and sure they are not holding back, while using icing for decorating the buns. Yummy!

In what you are good at?

Tigutorn


While living amongst skyscrapers you really do not notice them, as this all seems normal, but if you live in a town, where you see one unique skyscraper and changing seasons, then of course you will notice it and.....er, take lots of photos about it. That wouldn't be the last photo of famous Tigutorn.

Lightning



I have always liked the idea of possibility to take photos of a lightning. It almost seems like an impossible task. Well, I managed to capture few bursts on this August. I think this is the best shot. Like always in photography, the right moment is the most important thing....and of course having a camera there when this something happens. All those things were taken care of, but I really needed a tripod, but on that dark field there were only some hundred year old fences, onto what I could lean camera and myself, but they obviously worked out just fine. I took approximately twenty 30 second exposures, few are good enough to share, but this double lightning is excellent IMHO.

New York City landmarks






All of these photos have been presented here previously, but from a different angle or even as black on white. But never can get enough of such. These are the last from my USA series. Should go back and get new and interesting shots. That is very impressive that so many wonderful building from so many amazing architects have been built in one city. It is architecture lovers paradise!

Baltic Deli


Okay, it sounds really Baltic in this little delicatessen in Kingston, BUT if you are in Toronto and look for pierogies, cabbage rolls, village soup, rye bread and pastry, then Eesti Maja Café is the place to go for you. And do not forget about kringel, find out more about it here.

Chicken's


That is my most perfect chicken photo ever.
Check the one on the right :)
Chicken's remind me of alpaca's, as they are both very curious.


Chicken's are meant for laying eggs and fulfilling your life.

Simple Things (1957)

I turn to simple things,
I incline to simple goodness ……………
From the far off light of eternal stars
flows a stream of tenderness
The sea soughs and engulfs the fire
of a crooked juniper stump.
Through the night, through the night, one and all
sense the rolling of the waves!
To lie in the dew of the grass and to feel
the land alive, fragile.
Listen my friend, to the song of childhood,
homely as a cowbell.
Look, how beautifully the pear tree grows,
The one that father planted,
in the ravaged green garden, in the derelict home…..
Nearby, a late flower
like a single tear of emotion
sways and wilts in the wind.
In Autumn I listen with pleasure
to the sad, mellow whispers of the fields …..
Often weak in the face of temptation
silent, thinking that my love is the love of home,
I think, that my brother’s hair grows gray,
And he has more need of his sister.
I know that the night has it’s own joys,
As simple as the water in a basin,
That mother uses to wash your scratched legs
Before putting you to bed ……………….

I turn to simple things,
I incline to simple goodness ……………
When the pressure of difficult thoughts
Weigh upon me with lead heaviness………………
I walked along with the bright thought of love
As if supported by a rail,
listening to the silent birth of spring,
in a time of bitter doubt.
Listening to the silent birth of spring,
feeding the great tits at the window,
travelling in the pages of books,
patient, thoughtful, quiet.
I am drawing new frontiers,
New boundaries and plains.
I know that it is not possible to turn away
from a cherished, difficult life.

Simple things give me the strength
To ask, to urge, to intercede,
to respond to the calls of unquiet days,
that command what I can do, and need!
I know, that to grow strong
I must hold my breath while the storm screeches.
And yet I love the storm and hold in contempt
The foam thrown back upon the beaches.
And yet I love the highway grit
Although it chafes my legs.
I love the song that grows and resounds
in all the corners of the world.

3 AM




She says baby
It's 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain's gonna wash away I believe it
