Average Estonian boys



Well, they wouldn't think themselves like that, but here they are - typical Estonian boys. You do not see them so much in this setting though, as one of the Estonian oldest and most popular night clubs found its end last year.

Big eyes




People tell that it is okay to eat pigs, chickens, cows etc, but I do not think they would eat their cats, dogs, guinea pigs. They are not us to eat, so let them live.

Birch




All that I want is
Stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way
Out of the dark
And into your heart
---Lenny Kravitz "Stillness of heart"

Painting with light




Last spring I had a photography camp with few of my students in the forests of Põlvamaa, South Estonia. It was a great chance to practice more of a really creative art. I think it needs to be practiced further, as there are so many little tips to share and get, to make a better photograph.

Calm vol. 103



How has been the cycling this summer?
Love the breeze in my face when cycling on a hot summer day, but beware of stopping, as you may melt!

Temperature is 33 C, but feels like 40 C!

Walls of graffiti




The selection here is not the best one of course, but I happened to see these walls in the same day, which was quite an experience. I usually do not take much photos of street art, but seeing it in such large formats and so colorful, so I couldn't resist.

Sandra from Trad.Attack!



Had a great chance last Friday, when Estonian popular band Trad.Attack! gave a free concert in Toronto. Quite large amount of local Estonian community was present and you could hear lots of Estonian! I found the event especially heart-warming, as it took place on the hottest day of this year in Toronto and was like a bright star in the warm evening, also I have never heard them live before, as they are always sold out something. I did some photos and videos of them, which also was a little challenge for me,  as the light was harsh and the stage was far from the viewers. All in all, it was great!

Justin Trudeau





What an amazing prime minister Canada has. Wow, so handsome, so lively and so respectable. 
Seen here while having fun at Toronto Pride 2016. I am glad I was able even to get a clear view on him, as he was followed with a huge crowd of photo- and vdieographers!


Check other photos I took at the event HERE.

Talk to the hand



If your eyes are sharp enough you will notice a hand in the car.
The hand belongs to Toomas Hendrik Ilves.

Nature's structure



Man invents things. Man makes new structures. Nature is always there, watching over the success and unsuccess, all the good and all the bad man makes. Then nature takes over. We often notice this and often not. Open your eyes.

Tanel Toom



Tanel Toom is an Estonian Oscar nominated director and screenwriter.

Tanel Toom studied filmmaking at the Tallinn University, graduating with a BA in 2005. After that, he worked as a director for commercials and as a first assistant director. In 2008 he completed his fourth short film, The Second Coming, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival.

The apocalyptical war drama has since been screened at numerous film festivals and won several awards, including Best European Short at the Arcipelago International Film Festival. The same year, he decided to continue his studies at the National Film and Television School in England. He graduated from the NFTS with an MA in 2010 and shortly after that his diploma film The Confession won the Student Academy Award for Honorary Foreign Film and got him an Academy Award nomination for Live Action Short Film.

I captured this somewhat somber, but most definitely mysterious portrait of him in Estonian House in Toronto, during the EstDocs, where he participated as a jury.

Toronto Raptors vs Chicago Bulls








When I was in the end of high-school, I really liked NBA, but most of all Chicago Bulls. My good friend surprised me with a ticket to see local Toronto Raptors vs them! Of course I was completely off track to know any of the current Bulls players, as for sure Pippen, Rodman and Jordan were not going to be there :P But all in all, got to see the now the big thing DeMar DeRozan and get to know with the Bulls team.

Toronto Pride!


This is the Pride Sunday in Toronto! Masses of people gather to watch the march and try to find the best spot to view all this fuzz :)
The city has been very supportive to the LGBT community. Toronto is one of the most multi-cultural and gay-friendly places in the world, so that doesn't come as a surprise, especially after the recent Orlando tragedy. The city has been basically painted in rainbow colors and the support and represention gives me chills. Humanity is still there.

I visited first time Church on Church, which happened to be very funny and friendly place, where drag-queens performed their shows. Black women do it the best!
