I just saw from my stats that I’ve written 19.1K words on the blog this year – and you’re still around! Amazing! Thanks very much for sticking with me.
As you guys might have noticed, I’m more of a summer person and not a fan of winter at all. Real-life winter of a someone working full-time is nowhere near the hygge hype that happened last winter, or was it the winter before. Hygge is a marketing scam! (I know you won’t believe me but it needs to be said.)
Anyway… despite knowing it will inevitably lead to winter, I do love autumn. I can’t help it. Autumn is often quite colorful over here.
These photos are from downtown Helsinki, believe it or not. It’s a little pond (well, a bay, to be precise – Töölönlahti Bay), not a large lake though my iPhone likes to exaggerate the shore-to-shore distance. You see, I broke my camera lens over a year ago and have since been dependent on my phone for images. I think my phone enjoys being in charge.
I was inspired and snapped away like a madwoman… and so I’ll be doing a little series of these photos here on my blog. This is the first post of the series, curated around the idea of clouds, as the title suggests.
Weatherwise, it’s raining daily with strong wind and rare sunny moments like the one here in these photos. In the mornings, it’s 2°C and it can go up to around 8°C during daytime.
This morning, I decorated the stroller with reflectors because it’s getting dark already. I remember how they used to be a bit embarrassing when I was younger, but now they have gone en vogue. Everyone has one hanging from their coat or bag, the old and the young alike. And I would use them for my kids anyway, whether trendy or not!
Have you ever used reflectors? Maybe I’ll take a photo of them one day and post it here.
Hope you’re well!
