Business District

30.9.2009 New York City, NY

Who has been to New York City and wandered around in Manhattan can relate to such view. Nothing special, if to think of all this concrete, glass and steel, but then again no place like that anywhere in the world. Another day in the Big Apple.

29.9.2009 State of Pennsylvania

I consider this one of the best photos I have taken while my stay in US. This is a great shot, so clean and symmetric and then again confusing and so artificial next to its location, the nature. Well, yeah the highways pass just through and so does the cargo. So nature gets mixed with artificial.

28.9.2009 State of Pennsylvania

With this post a new and kind of random series will begin. It is to celebrate the 5th year anniversary of visiting the States. So in next three months there will be bits and pieces here and there, which were taken exactly five years ago on the same date when the post is published. Hopefully these photos will show some of the vastness of the States.

In Northern-America it is very common to have parades to celebrate different holidays or traditions. They are always pretty fun to watch,but then again a bit pointless, but hey, we gotta enjoy our lives right? Here is a glimpse of one the Canadian way.

Shots of the so-called "saviour bridge", which is solely meant for pedestrians and cyclists. A comes, you can see from where :) It is just 11 years old and connecting the market and downtown with Annelinn, which is the main residential area in Tartu. It is 251 meters long. When the bridge was completed in 2003 people voted it as the job of the year, that explains why it was a saviour :)

Mait Malmsten

Mait Malmsten is an Estonian actor. He has had many roles in the theatre, movies and on TV. He rose to the sight in 1995 when he played a young school-boy in TV series "Boys of Wikman". That is where I remember him. The last appearance on the movie he had last year playing in "Kertu". All what has been between those to pieces is lots and lots of wonderful acting and MC-ing, as he is a great person to run a show.

"Light so blinded"

I took photos at a lovely wedding. Got a ride back home with nice people and two other passengers. One of them was really drunk and singing a line from the song over and over again: "Light so blinded." Inspired by.
Go figure.

Reykjavik downtown

The ever so fancy, but quite dull downtown. Note the lack of green and that what you can see doesn't look very much alive. Buildings that belong somewhere in between. Posturinn is where you can send parcels home.

Enar was my most active photography student who participated in my class, I think at least 6 years. Now he has grown up and does the grown-up things. We used to go to many photo walks in the nature and in the city, a real companion you can always trust and who can crack a joke. Oh and he likes Timberland a lot :)

9/11 - four photos of New York City

I want to wake up, In that city that doesn't sleep.
And find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap.

My little town blues, They are melting away.
I gotta make a brand new start of it, in old New York.

If I can make it there,
I'll make it anywhere.
It's up to you, New York, New York.
                                                           - Frank Sinatra "New York, New York"

East York

East York is a former municipality within the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was a semi-autonomous borough within the overall municipality of Metropolitan Toronto until 1998, when it was amalgamated into the new "megacity" of Toronto in 1998. Before the amalgamation, it was Canada's only borough.
It is separated by the Don River from the former City of Toronto. Traditional East York is southeast of the river, and the neighbourhoods ofLeaside, Bennington Heights and densely populated Thorncliffe Park are northwest of the river. The heart of East York is filled with middle-class and working-class homes, with extensive high-rise developments along peripheral major streets and in Crescent Town and Thorncliffe Park.

Disco boy

New month, new series. On Sunday's from now on will be dedicated to portraits of men and boys. Known or unknown, you will get to know a little about them all. 

This boy was one of the nicest club visitors in all those years when I did nightclub photography. He was always wearing cool hip-hop t-shirts and hoodies and always in a good mood. I saw him more than once and it was always a positive encounter.

Hare with porcupine needles on its back

While volunteering in the forest I came across to many interesting animals, birds, plants and insects, but this hare beat them all, as I saw it cleaning its fur while I could see many quills of a porcupine covering hare's back. They are impossible to get out without an extra help, so I wonder what was the destiny of this hare...

Get your back up off the wall

Another series of people. This time I was inspired by the Kool and the Gang lyrics of "Get Down On It". So get your back up off the wall!

How you gonna do it if you really don't wannna dance
By standing on the wall?
(Get your back up off the wall)
Tell me, how you gonna do it if you really don't wanna dance
By standing on the wall?

Habitat 67

For a long time I have wanted to post the photos of a wonderful Habitat 67, which is a model community and housing complex in Montreal, Canada, designed by Israeli–Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. I visited it not on a nice time, as the cruel Canadian winter is pretty tough in the end of February.

If you do not know anything about the Habotat, then you should know that it was originally conceived as the architects master's thesis in architecture at McGill University and then built as a pavilion for Expo 67, the World's Fair held from April to October 1967. It is located at 2600 Avenue Pierre-Dupuy on the Marc-Drouin Quay next to the Saint Lawrence River and therefore not very easy to visit. I think we saw nobody at that moment checking out the wonderful building.

Habitat 67 is widely considered an architectural landmark and one of the most recognizable and significant buildings in both Montreal and Canada. It doesn't look the best on these days, as you can see from the photos, but still the look and the idea of it is 

Check out a cool panorama of Habitat HERE.
