Egon "Empty calories"



I had seen him in Estonia, in Tartu before. I think I even have posted a photo of him crazy dancing in Club Illusion.
When I was in Canada in a summer camp in the middle of nowhere, I really didn't expect to see him there walking to the premises on a dusty road while wearing the same tank top, but yes, he did. He was a funny character and always made comments about calories etc, as he kept himself nice and lean. I mean look at that glance, right? :)

Meadow pipit





I think this Meadow Pipit is so cute. Look how nicely this little birdy decides to take off while noticing me approaching. You can see its tiny foot up while making a fast run.

Thanks to my faithful reader I was able to find out that this is a Meadow pipit. It is a small passerine bird, which breeds in much of the northern half of Europe and also northwestern Asia. It is migratory over most of its range, wintering in southern Europe, north Africa and southwestern Asia, but is resident in Ireland, Great Britain, and neighbouring areas of western Europe. However, even here, many birds move to the coast or lowlands in winter.


This is a widespread and often abundant small pipit, 14.5–15 cm long and 15–22 g weight. It is an undistinguished looking species on the ground, mainly brown above and buff below, with darker streaking on most of its plumage; the tail is brown, with narrow white side edges. It has a thin bill and pale pinkish-yellow legs; the hind claw is notably long, longer than the rest of the hind toe. The call is a weak tsi-tsi. The simple repetitive song is given in a short song flight. 

You can read more about it here.

People with microphones vol. 5




Just wanted these photos to be a pair and not to add any other on a side. On the second photo it is hard to notice a microphone, but I can tell you it is there ;)

Beautiful orange building for Solidarity Day





Some new architecture in Tartu. Hope it gives some overview. It was very hard to capture these shots, as the fence was all around the property and besides that I had to jump over another fence :P

Rein Sikk



Rein Sikk is Estonian journalist. I knew him from Eesti Päevaleht, one of the two biggest daily newspapers. Not personally until a work-shop which took place in Valga county. I found out that he was very kind and friendly person. Had an interesting approach to his talking, which made him very understandable. He inspired me a great deal with his motivation lecture about making things come real. He handed out the list of things you have to agree or believe in and from there on it is all possible. The guidelines are still hanging on my wall, if you have any interest in it, then please leave a comment.

People with microphones vol. 4





This time something a bit different next to the previous music-related shots. Three people in a low-light setting giving speeches. Powerful.

Calm vol. 45



"Life itself" was very inspiring and warm movie, which once again was an eye-opener and a proof that all the smallest things around us are worthy of our enjoyment and our attention. Stop and enjoy!

Montreal



I think Montreal didn't leave me such a good impression because of the time I was visiting - in the end of February - cold and gloomy time. I felt that the city had more to offer than I was able to grab. I chose to see Habitat, the Olympic Stadium and the biosphere, therefore old town and the harbor didn't get so much of my attention. Probably it was meant like that, as I was left with this shot facing the city, which in my opinion has a little glow of hope and warmth to it.

Makoto



Makoto Shimizu, born in 1977 in Tokyo, Japan), professionally known as Makoto is a Japanese drum and bass musician, DJ and actor. Among other distinctives of Makoto's musical style, a heavy influence of 1970s-era soul, funk and jazz fusion can be heard throughout the vast majority of his repertoire. 

Inspired by LTJ Bukem's Logical Progression album and Goldie's Timeless, he began to experiment with his own drum and bass music compositions. His unique style received the attention of LTJ Bukem and his Good Looking Records label, and Makoto was later featured on several of LTJ Bukem's mix CDs.

Knowing all that and a little bit more then this is a big miracle to find out when he is performing in Club Illusion in Tartu! The show was excellent, but since I didn't have my regular camera, then I just had to settle with my brothers iPhone :) but thanks to this I have this wonderful shot of him in the first place!

Check Makoto's official site HERE.

Road


On Tuesdays I have, I do not know for how long, tried to show different man-made objects: houses, buildings, plants, monuments etc, but I think I have never published a photo of a road. Here is one, quite a picturesque in my humble opinion. Those who have taken that road know where the best rolling hills are happening, but those who don't, then it is Valga county. 

P.s. Click on the photo to see it larger.

Uncle Meeme



This is my uncle Meeme. Ever since I was little I have liked his name, as this is nothing like other names I know. He has always been a fun and friendly character, always a hard-worker, too. 
Pictured he is explaining the situation of a blind black sheep. How ironic, right?
Up to this day he is still tending animals, such as sheep, hens and many cats.
Warmest wishes to him!

Detroit vol. 4


It has taken me some time to come back to the Detroit series again. I think secretly I have hoping that in time the photos would get better. Haa! Anyway here is even deeper triptych of the Detroit series than the serious have been. I tried to enhance the dramatics even more during the post-processing. 

I saw recently a show on TV where they showed a much better Detroit than these photos of mine taken four years ago. There were more jobs created and the downtown looked more lively. I surely hope that this city in ruins does better day by day. 





My previous Detroit photos can be seen HERE.
