Seems that the autumn is stepping through, in the yellow leaves and yellow walls :)) And the Vespas are still there! They endure it before the first snow. I love taking photos of Vespas too 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Vespas are so cute, I agree! White seems to be a popular color… Trees here in Helsinki have turned already into their autumn colors… I read somewhere they even had their first snow up in the north already!!! LikeLiked by 2 people Maybe, Vespas give their owners that Mediterranean feeling, that’s why they are so popular here, in the North :)) I’ve heard of snow somewhere in the North some month ago… But here it is still all autumn, playing with colors 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person The red berries on the blue back ground I find beautiful. And I can smell autumn in your city, a calm trodding towards winter when the ice breakers at Merikasarmin Laituri shiver themselves to life and set off to open the world. LikeLiked by 1 person Oh what a picture you paint… making even winter sound magical 😊 Thanks! I like the berries on the blue ground too, but the lighting/exposure is off (an iphone snap) and I have no time or energy for much editing these days (I used to love editing)… but in real life it was a beautiful accidental composition, I shot it as I found it! LikeLiked by 1 person Great display of Helsinki. Xx LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks dear! LikeLiked by 1 person Absolutely love the collage. LikeLiked by 1 person Merciiii..!!! LikeLike Artistically done! 🌟 Fruits (plums?) lying on the blue ground is my favourite. Best autumn wishes 🍂🍁🍄 LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks! They are some sort of berries, I think (not sure!!). Wishing you a colorful autumn! LikeLiked by 1 person What an excellent collection! Some of it, including the light, is quite Italian looking! Those leaves are to print out and look at if you get gloomy. I love all the shapes and how you put them together. Very fulfilling. LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you dear Manja! 🙂 Park a Vespa there and anything will look Italian, no? 😋The heart sees what it wants to… LikeLiked by 1 person Lovely details! Very much appreciate the stroll… Happy sunny days to you! Xoxoxo LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks Julie! Back in Holbox? 😊 LikeLike Back in Mexico, yes, but not on Holbox yet. Low season: the bar is closed, we’re on the road for local adventures! 😉😎 LikeLiked by 1 person Ooh, lovely!!! Enjoy! (Will you be posting pics? Hope so!) LikeLike As soon as my computer is back in order (I have trouble charging it lately…) 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Oh! These are so beautiful. One surprise after another. Fun sidewalk drawing, fall leaves, and that unique angle of the lavender stool? – These 3 are my faves. LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks, dear Pierr, for picking your faves! 😀 Lots of fun details when you really look – all around us! LikeLiked by 1 person Love the first image 😊 Beautiful, Helsinki must be a beautiful city, full of fascinating places and things 😍 Ciao Sid LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks Sid! You should come and see for yourself! 😁 LikeLiked by 2 people Time will come… 😎 LikeLiked by 1 person What a nice selection of photos. You have a good eye for detail – and doodles. LikeLiked by 1 person Heheh, thanks! The doodles kept hopping out at me LikeLiked by 1 person You have some really nice captures here. Cheers LikeLiked by 1 person Hey there, thanks! LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you for the nice walk in Helsinki. (The light still looks good) Yksitisalue would be emergency exit?) LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks for coming along! 3C in the mornings, yellow leaves… definitely not summer anymore! But still not completely dark – yes, the light is still here 😊 Yksityisalue=private property. In that photo, my eye was drawn to the wall behind part of the door. All in all, not inviting! Hahah LikeLiked by 1 person 3C sounds like bad omen for the near future. Now Finn really is different. I thought “Yksiti” might be “exit”. 😉 So “salue” is house or property? LikeLiked by 1 person Alue is property in this case, more often it’s area. Finnish isn’t related to any major languages (Hungarian, they say, but to us that seems alien. Estonian is quite similar to Finnish.) But Finland has two official languages and the second one, Swedish, is much easier for foreign visitors to guess! Swedish is very similar to English actually! 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Yes, you are right, Swedish “looks” like english. Both are “germanic” languages actually. The trick is to identify the “radical” in the word: Tak = Danke = Dank U = Thank… (Latin has always helped me in that respect, but I think Finnish will elude me…) A bientôt Lumi LikeLiked by 1 person A great out and about collection! 🙂 Those berries caught my eye … LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks Julie! They did look interesting having fallen on that blue part of the pavement LikeLiked by 1 person I’ve been catching up with all your posts of the last couple of months, I loved this collection of images from everyday moments. It’s like going on a walk with you. 🙂 It’s also interesting to see that the way you look at the city shifted a bit since you had that friend visit and you had to look at Helsinki with different eyes. LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks Ines for taking the time to catch up 💕 And for walking with me! 😉 The evolution of how we see things and also do things (write, take and edit photos…) is so well documented in blogging, isn’t it? Have you missed blogging at all? LikeLiked by 1 person That’s right, blogs are the perfect archive to store the evolution of someone’s skills. Do I miss blogging? Good question! 👇 Well, yes & no. I don’t because I have been sharing photos on Instagram and using the captions as mini blog posts. So I’m still active online, I connect with people, I share photos I take + things that are on my mind and real conversations start from that – which gives me what I had with the blog. However, there’s a lot happening on Instagram at the same time, there are more people over there and that means a lot of “fake engagement”. What I mean by that is even if people are leaving a comment, it doesn’t mean they are really paying attention. And that’s what I miss from the blog, anyone who would take the time to read my blog posts and commenting was actually invested in connecting with me. On the blog things weren’t as fast-paced and I never got that feeling of “this person clearly didn’t read what I just said”. But for now I choose to ignore the crowd on IG and focus on the few that really care to interact in a authentic way. 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Good choice, to focus on those few! I got exactly the same impression during my brief experiment with IG. And I didn’t have any real conversations. One new follower who isn’t on the blog world and who seemed genuine, and who I now don’t have contact with. The rest are on WordPress too and I’d rather connect over here. As I started writing more posts lately, instead of photo posts, I’ve been amazed that my followers really do read them!! My long, silly ramblings. It’s humbling and I feel grateful to have found such a great community here! LikeLiked by 1 person Leave a Comment Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
