These days I've been living in a cloud of excitement and anxiety, and the reason is that I'm leaving for Japan in just a few days. I am beyond excited, but because I'm the worst of worriers, I'm also scared and nervous and 100 percent certain I've forgotten something important! 

We are flying to Tokyo, but we're also going to visit Kyoto and the Japanese Alps. We have two weeks to explore the cities and the nature, and I can't wait for all the incredible sights, flavors and experiences that await. I will certainly be taking a lot of photographs, and once I'm back home, I can't wait to share them with you.

I'm missing the cherry blossom season this time, the flowers have bloomed and are being swept away by the wind as we speak. But I've been thinking a lot about last Spring, and a trip to a part of Helsinki where there is a park filled with cherry trees and the most wonderful Japanese garden. I wanted to share with you some analog photographs I took there in May of last year.

sun on the frozen lake

Two weeks ago, we spent a weekend at our family cabin. Saturday was cool, grey, and gloomy. I walked in the woods, enjoying the fresh air and the beautiful views. The ground was still covered with snow for the most part, little islands of ground emerging from the snowy sea of white. When we got back to the cabin, we made sandwiches in the oven and drank some tea to warm us up. We lit the fireplace and cuddled with blankets to watch movies, then heated up the sauna and enjoyed the cozy warmth.

On Sunday, we woke up to the sun shining, feeling bright and rejuvenated. I walked along the shore of the lake and found this beautiful rocky beach, where I sat for a good while, just soaking up the warmth of the sun and taking these self-portraits. I still have many more photographs from the cabin to show you, but that can wait until next time.

autumn analog memories

In these long winter months I've been looking back at days with more sunlight and more exploring. I wanted to share with you some analog pictures from last autumn. Drinking coffee, picking apples and greeting the sun.
