top student

 

allu is already a top mark bachelor of law already and is next semester returning to england for masters level. 




 

we celebrated her with good food, great discussions and a passionate music performance by stella & paul.

... but what else than a fantastic show could you expect from a satin circus pop star + a fresh bachelor of theatre art




also my saab is back from scotland over summer and the two of us "prepartied" in the summer heat at the world village festival in kajsaniemi.



allu's symphathetic dad entertained us with his guitar and groovy singing voice.

stella got to try cognac from this 3-in-1 glass ;)




me, cami, paul & stella and andu focused on the strawberries. the more allu brought in, the more we emptied ;)

but also the cake à la allu was a success: loads of fillings between 4 mud cake layers!

and then i biked home to be fit for fight for work at the eu elections the whole sunday :D

my way to play


i dragged my guide ugi to the photography playground in berlin.

fantastic light sculptures and optical illusions.
 

 

you didn't know that i also freelance as spiderwoman?


behind the epilectic curtains.
 

 

i see the light.

 

and a chameleon granny who fits into all situations.

ninja


masculine vibes from "dude island" made atte jump like a ninja.
 

 

who's gonna win this battle?

24.04.2014 kl. 08:08

tomorrow


 

i really hope this new area will give a facelift to helsinki. not that i don't like it now, but it's never good to stagnate

23.04.2014 kl. 22:22

mount dude


we climb a hill of stones for better views.no psysical effort to climb this mountain, but it's never wrong to take a coffee break.

23.04.2014 kl. 10:10

saturday

 

sea, salt, smile, sand, sun, shore, steel, stone.

hello esa.

photowalk


sometimes i believe in gods - the weather gods - who blowed the first heat wave towards helsinki just in time for easter and our photowalk.

 

 

i made new friends and met lauri and atte who inspired me to start blogging.only me and the dudes shot photos. but we walked on jätkäsaari, the dude island, after all.

20.04.2014 kl. 21:43

company cravings


this easter is different. i usually spend a lot of time with my family, but my parents are photographing foreign nature. 
this means time to catch up with friends, such as this philosophizing ballet dancer.



it is easy to feel lonely during holidays when everyone else seem so occupied with family dinners and traditions.
i have no special decorations this year, but got my share of good old easter at my grand parents house the other day.

20.04.2014 kl. 11:11

hamster wheel


easter awakes some thoughts.
is someone keeping a safe eye on us from above?
 


or are we marionettes in a game called tellus?

driven like hamsters in a wheel?
like in henrik vibskovs human laundry service.



i belong to the church, love the christmas mood and i'm proud to have a godson to take out for a easter froyo brunch at yobot. but i wouldn't call me a christian. i want to have a wider view of the world.

19.04.2014 kl. 13:13

vibskov gives me vibes

 

ecological, local, experimential, fair, classic haute couture & design in turquoise - that's what i and anni like.to see danish design accelerated my danmark fever - can't wait to know if i will move there in august!

 


reflecting over falling flamingos

18.04.2014 kl. 21:21

things i like


i have been a bit tired despite this awesome weather and a not-too-full calendar.

last week ina and i baked a veggie taco pie in my terrible oven ;). but it turned out yummy.

yesterday i met up with my best art exhibition company: anniwe both fell in love with this anorak of finnish design. 


after that i biked to sörnäs to see a play that focuses on portraying humanity through movements and behaviour. among the actors are two uni friends.

still two shows left on saturday, but be quick if you want the cheap tickets!

18.04.2014 kl. 10:58

instagram = irritation or inspiration?


i was against instagram ever since it started. to post retro images with light leak effects felt like cheezy cheating. i did the real thing with my plastic film camera diana

but i haven't played with her since i became petitemu. developing films is expensive nowadays and i got thrilled by the speed and easiness of shooting only digital.

my new yellow aquaintance constantly blipped about an awesome app called instagram
fine then. jepardqvist is in the house!
 

consious cycling.

 

better than b&j.
 

am i throwing out an old toy for the new mainstream one?

i hope not.
diana will always be my number 1 and is great company at summer parties for example.

11.04.2014 kl. 20:58

neon

while waiting for my 9-year old kiddoes to arrive to my lecture about refugees in uganda, i felt like becoming small again. luckily i have a new toy to play with.
 


i have had a fetisch for neon these past grey months, and i don't fell like stopping.

today i will host a studio debate in tv, so jump into the coach and watch me here.

09.04.2014 kl. 11:11

brylcreem


now i almost regret that i cut my hair. otherwise i would have got a nice hairdo while sitting in a 50s salon.


i cued a while for some makeup, but then realised i was spending the evening all alone.
 


i would have waited for sure if mr brylcreem would have been waiting for me ;)

10.04.2014 kl. 20:20

fashion mingle


finnish skiing fashion certainly has changed.

but the round pair of sunglasses could be mine. my brother calls my ossy ;)


guess who these lovely legs belongs to?

who else than the winner of the costume competition.


these 1st row-ladies were pretty from all perspectives:

09.04.2014 kl. 21:21

with grace


helsinki couture from the 50s.


 

08.04.2014 kl. 20:20

good old times


i thought i took the tram, but it must have been the time machine.

everyone is longing for cool cuisine: hotdogs!



which is the odd one out?

answer: the smart phone.

i visited villa hagasund again. this time with a real touch of the fifties.

there was a costume competition. this handsome couple was crowned as most stylish.


even i made a small effort and came with dramatic eyes, an a-shaped dress, jewellery and half boots - just for fun. 

07.04.2014 kl. 20:17

ecological fallacy at busholmen


busholmen is probably the oddest part of helsinki. i travelled there to buy a new phone and to take a look at the helsinki photo biennale in galleria huuto.
 


i have seen a sneakpeak of the biennale also in the photomuseum, but the rest parts are still on my todo-list. this year's theme is a fascinating one: ecological fallacy.

today i also heard a lecture about refugees by a swedish digging journalist. interesting, informatic and important.

there i was served a delicious bowl of fish soup. why haven't i eaten it for ages?

another professional idol of mine is jeanette björkqvist. she tried out as a playwright, which i wrote an article about in ny tid a while ago.

this week i got to see the performance kvinna till salu about sex trafficking.
like a horror movie - but true

05.04.2014 kl. 20:22

optimistic


i already have denmark fever, even before i know if i have the chance to move there. 

i sent in an application to study photojournalism in aarhus.

please keep your fingers crossed while checking out my portfolio.
 


in aarhus they have a perfect exhange programme, but ...

the big but is the fierce competition. they actually require at least one year's studies in photojournalism - impossible here in finland.

here are some oldies from a family trip to copenhagen in december 2011
 

 

 

 

02.04.2014 kl. 19:19

the coolest man of the country


i got an unique opportunity to attend the photography expedition by pata degerman.

i knew that he was a mountain climber, an adventurer and a family father - but not that he's a natural comedian, a painter, a nature expert, a businessman and a fantastic photographer.

when a polar bear comes too close he rather shoots with a camera than with a gun.

 

01.04.2014 kl. 21:51

grand finale


"just" some fireworks over the neighbourhood. the reason is unkown.



sawatdeekaa thailand!

but now it's time to move on.

28.03.2014 kl. 10:10

the makeover


friday is a perfect day for a makeover.

step 1. here is a hint:

no, not a tattoo!

but it was exiting enough to make a new piercing without common language or methods.

i have no idea how he made it, but i guess it was with a needle

i was afraid to end up with a huge hole in the wrong place, but i'm completely satisfied.

next step was at the hairdresser's. i have never let someone random cut my hair before.

she cut less than i wanted, but better so. it was cheap and friendly.
less than 8 euros for me and my aunt.


yeah - here is mr piercing again!
luckily i got phompens son and half of his class to assist me.

14.03.2014 kl. 11:11

sinners


our nearest temple is a really neat and nice one ;).

the whole area is full of statues that show what happens when you sin.



luna has tried alcohol - too bad for her!



luckily she gets to feed the turtles before her destiny


this cute couple was tall as a block house.


 

the only right way is to obey the buddhist rules.
and donate money!

13.03.2014 kl. 08:08

chinese temple


a few kilometres away there is a chinese tempel that never stops to grow



juice and mandarines for the gods.

it was a pity that we couldn't take interior photos, but already the outside was outstanding.



chinese meditation items.
somebody is getting one as a gift ;)

of course we tried the gong gong!



12.03.2014 kl. 07:07

back in bangsaen


- i take a phramed luna, thank you!
how much? can i get any discount?

anything can be bought at a thai market.

this is the main street from the beach to the mall.
feels like home, i miss it already!

10.03.2014 kl. 10:10

four wise monkies

june


it feels like summer although it's just spring in thailand.

on the boat from koh samet i met a new friend named june who has a common interest:




08.03.2014 kl. 07:07

last night on the islands


angry birds everywhere in thailand. here as a symbol of luck. 



although thai people love the angry birds they never show anger
they rather choose life, laugh and love.
07.03.2014 kl. 19:19

the girl with the dragon tattoo


luckily not for long, only henna.

temple number one after a sleepless night in the bus.

17.02.2014 kl. 04:53

sacrificing


thai people love soft drinks, and so does buddha?

 

16.02.2014 kl. 16:16

young and vivid


bangsaen has a university with over 10 000 students. this brings fresh air to the hoods.

a spotted a furby (my favourite childhood toy from singapore) in a window!



the internet generation seem to be taking over this country as well ;)


100 % chocolate:


got inspiration to make hama bead jewellery - who wants to have a workshop with me :) ? 

i chatted with many students - all friendly, but few are fluent at english ... and my thai - let's not talk about it ;) 

i have a disease called journalism. that's why i have to research their market.

otherwise i have chosen to take a break from domestic and international news.
13.02.2014 kl. 13:13

there is no universal truth

 

heureka might mostly attract kids, but is enlightening for all of us.

in the radio report i sat next to a lonely old man on a bench. he whispered crazy words of wisdom into my microphone.

i really miss our theory of knowledge classes in high school. is there such thing as absolute truth? became a hectic debate.

31.01.2014 kl. 17:17

accepting madness


... or is there even a clear border of madness? i think it is relative and can be just a healthy spice, but always lagom.

i did my 1st live radio reportage today and got a major psychosis 
... in a simulator at the world's 1st exhibition of mental problems!

it was kind of challenging when the interviewee appeared just 2 minutes before we went on air and the simulator actually started working a second after the red light went on.

improvisation really is cold shower for all senses and i enjoyed my 6 minutes of radio madness.


do you see someone familiar in this version of the scream ;) ?

i find this painting by edvard munch so fascinating that i actually wrote a short story based on it in 9th grade.

30.01.2014 kl. 22:50

a cup of light


i had ina over for a quick cup of whisky tea before stella's show at the theatre academy's performance night. she was an adorable mårran.

sweet dreams


luna gave my bed linen with picturesque motifs for birthday.
i even spotted my beloved diana f+
now it has its place in my heart, but also on my heart. 


 

sweet dreams are made of these ...

15.01.2014 kl. 18:46

foreverism


what a lovely term. i might turn it into my religion?



i had a busy last week, but i am glad that i ran to the train to make it to the last days of don't shoot the messenger at the design museum. 
14.01.2014 kl. 14:14

be the producer of your life


stepping on thoughts at the design museum.



my answer is no. photoshop can't fix the world, but it can help to knit the mesh of your life into something beautiful.
13.01.2014 kl. 20:50

my dream room


like a chameleon. the wall changes pattern according to the colour of the light.

12.01.2014 kl. 22:21

flourishing


i feel like my art is geeting rooted. this is me and others seem to like it - acceptance.

documenting with my lensbaby in the blue hour.
seems like it is the best light we have for now - either shades of grey or dark as in a sack.
 

07.01.2014 kl. 13:15

photos from my assistant


dad was called my "assistant" yesterday, and not without a reason. he gave feedback on my choice of pictures, bought paper with me, visited kinuskilla to plan and measure, lended his printer ... and his height was useful when hanging the photos. invaluable in other words!

and as you see photography has flooded into my veins from both parents. here are dad's vernissage photos:
 



toasting with good old friends!
 

what is the link between these four women? a connection to me and the camera.
 

stella and paul after cake.
 

the leica lovers.

check out some more here!

05.01.2014 kl. 21:21

vernissage visitors


i didn't have time for photography at the opening night, but luckily mom and dad brought their cameras.

for the first time i show you photos taken by someone else than me.

here are mom's documentative captures from yesterday:
 

these helsinki girls were not the only ones struggling to find the way, but i am so grateful that they made it!


- which one is your favourite? discussed mom's good friends (intitially her's but now also my friends).


some cousins popped by between the little man's, my god son's, soccer games nearby.


my god parents bought some art works - thank you!


talented photo buddies who arrived from as far as hangö!


eagerness, creativity ... crazyness ;) ?




thank you for coming, and for all the flowers!

05.01.2014 kl. 10:16

bubbles of elderflower

what a vernissage!

thanks guys - i hope this won't be my last one. around 40 guests oriented themselves out to kinuskilla this rainy saturday.

and for you who missed it, it will hang there until the end of february. i might even organise a second meeting there later this month!
 




i already sold some copies, but please buy more ;)

04.01.2014 kl. 19:17

02.01.2014 kl. 21:21

welcome to my vernissage


this saturday 4th of January from 2 to 4pm at kinuskilla. the exhibition hangs there until the end of february. welcome!

saskatoon


rafaela is now leaving for an exchange programme in the middle of canada



i will miss my "prima skinka" <3

we had a relaxing evening at her family's house with board games, packing, physiotherapy, fish soup and fresh dates.

babylove


i already love my lensbaby - can't wait to shoot in daylight!

27.12.2013 kl. 22:22

baby steps


i must have been good, because santa brought me a lensbaby. testing it tonight.


27.12.2013 kl. 13:13

luna the lady


thanks luna for inviting me over!

i snooped around in her aesthetic home and was impressed by her carob from malaga, the maaany pillows, her freezer full of homemade food (like mine), and her beauty table.

these are lunar colours. she is a lady, but with a practical and an adventurous (rather cleptomaniac) edge <3

20.12.2013 kl. 07:07

exhibition planning


15.12.2013 kl. 16:16

1 and 1/2 me


i was buying chestnuts at stockmann and stumbled upon my old class mate. i sat down in her makeup chair and abracadabra: the petite troll looked polished.
 


only a quick makeup was possible, because being still and quiet is impossible when you have a couple of years to catch up.


16.12.2013 kl. 15:15

lucky day


i totally forgot it was friday 13th. we had such a good afternoon with ina.

lunch and design market at the academy of fine arts. the most personal and interesting christmas market so far ... i could not resist buying myself a couple of crazy christmas gifts.getting dark already at 4 pm, but that's why we have lucia.



 

15.12.2013 kl. 16:16

sankta lucia


i was lucia in playschool and in elementary school, but i secretely desire to be her again.
yes, it is impossible, but not in my blog ;)

i can't sing, i am too short and not as good as a saint. but this is my attempt to wish you a lovely lucia!


i will celebrate the day with ina: artsy christmas market, mulled wine at school and finland's lucia at the senate square. 

i hope i will find time to bake lussekatter this weekend.
 

13.12.2013 kl. 06:06

a plate for sharing


this season is for sharing good mood
and good food from this smart plate.



 

i like the sleek, minimalistic design with the funny twist. i spotted the plate again at ornamo's.

does someone want to join me to korjaamo's market during the weekend?

12.12.2013 kl. 08:08

farewell foreign reporters


this week will end with a farewell party for my class mates. they return back home for christmas, but it has been a pleasure to study and spend time with you <3

at the photojournalism release party.

counting moomies

the best birthday card from a best friend makes me smile every morning.
 


a mumindalen christmas calendar in mini format, perfect for petite μ.

10.12.2013 kl. 18:37

where to focus?


here and now.

it was a great christmas concert in the finlandia building with bo kasper's feat. frida andersson.

05.12.2013 kl. 19:19

i am a gold tooth


södermalm seemed full of exiting shops and galleries. we found some gold teeth to hug called ulrika!
 



here we stumpled upon an anniversary exhibition with all the artists who have ever exhibited.

we felt lucky.
02.12.2013 kl. 20:55

estetik ändå ut i fingerspetsarna


fotografiska hosts the best still photos of the city and has the best real life panorama.

luna the baker: here's a challenge for you! bake beautiful buns like these, but maybe with a saffron twist for christmas ;) ?
and räksmörgåsar à la rafsan! my friend always orders these shrimp sandwiches when we go to sweden.

but she wasn't with us this time, so we just window shopped at the fotografiska panorama bistro.
seems like their food is as aesthetic as the exhibitions.

no worries, this was my last post from the fantastic photo museum in sthlm.

02.12.2013 kl. 07:07

occupy ruka


sofia is literally going to inta ruka (inta is to occupy in swedish and ruka is a ski center in northern finland). she will celebrate christmas there ;)

this ruka is however a photographer from latvia.

real humans and their handwritten stories.

the woman on the last picture is scaringly alike 2 people i know.
tyska j, do you agree?

01.12.2013 kl. 08:08

vill man vara fin så får man lida pin


the first picture is called suffer, and on the second one the model is transparent.

maybe it means that perfectionism is only a mirage, or that rare beauty is reached only through sufferage?

too much thinking or too much paolo?

i had the best company, but they needed a rest ;).

30.11.2013 kl. 21:21

poetic paolo polaroids

impossible to visit stockholm without fotografiska. especially if someone like paolo roversi is sharing his polaroids. 

this is the gaze of a goddess


and here is my little goddess in the snowstorm of paris

a photographer's heaven

29.11.2013 kl. 16:35

artificial legs, living xmas decorations and cookie monsters


i popped by the international photography evening. adults played with light sabers and did crazy experiments with the kitchen knife ...

there were more legs made of carbon (tripods) than real human legs.
 

some models were bribed with cookies to dress up as christmas decorations.
 



 

26.11.2013 kl. 17:17

collection of cards


i <3 design and visual art, but not as much as i <3 people. 

therefore, i collect postcards, contact cards and (of course) photography.

 

23.11.2013 kl. 18:18

chewing on a mini motivation carrot


a piece of brightness flew in through the mail slot the other day to lighten up my grey november mood.





it is the ratata calendar which you can - no should, purchase here. i'm involved but still very proud of our blog sites good eye for words and art.

i found my page! maybe i'm doing something well after all? 
 




i could not wait for my birthday to open it.
to finally be able to chill and meet with friends and family has kept me going for a while, but i thought the carrot was a bit far away, so i ate this mini one to keep up the motivation!

21.11.2013 kl. 19:08

hello me


intellect can be dangerous in a hurry. to stop, think and question the current situation. 

what if we struggle for no reason?
i wear eye patches and keep going on, like a donkey.

stubborn and stupid.

even sleepless nights can be beneficial.
they force us to ponder about goals, prioritizations and life content. why overload yourself with work, earn to much and be dissatisfied?

no worries, there will always be others who try to keep you busy. so no need to take care of that task. 

i found a source of inspiration. we share some interests and i admire her mature yet playful spirit.
 


i will not attempt to follow her route, but to find my one. it requires balance.

we all have 24 hours. it is a matter of prioritization.

 

19.11.2013 kl. 11:11

pranama


in the heart of helsinki there is an oasis.

train, breath, relax in yoga asanas and wonder why people are rushing like ants at the shopping street beneath.



pop by, choose class and pay according to your conscience and wallet.

a mirage? no, a dream come true ...

i have not tried yet, but i will. when this hamster wheel of work finally stops spinning.

at least yoga på svenska and friday yoga for singles ;)

18.11.2013 kl. 18:18

spirit of the glass

 




the spirit of matilda is beautiful and kind, but not all spirits are ;)

i know it isn't halloween anymore, but with the wailing wind outside in the darkness ... this favourite suits the mood so well!

the more silly skeletons the merrier ;)

 

16.11.2013 kl. 20:53

magnus the model


modelling is not a piece of cake.  
but magnus got on fire - almost literally!



he sat like in the sauna, but said:
- it's actually quite comfortable!

we had to switch off the studio light when it fumed and there was a smell of smoked magnus.

 

11.11.2013 kl. 19:19

faces of photographers


these people usually hide behind the lenses

we had a studio workshop. i focused on faces as a kickstart for a new photographic phase.

teacher ludde, mom and peter:

svenska natten


svenska dagen lider mot sitt slut, men lämnar efter sig ett vackert minne
 




jag släpade mig tillbaka hem till stressen.
när huvudet hängde som tyngst fick vattenpölen mig att le och lyfta på hakan. 
där sken solen som inte har tittat fram på ett tag.

idag fladdrade flaggan festen till ära, men också vanliga vardagar är vackra.
inte alltid på det konventionella sättet, men alldeles säkert gömmer sig små stjärngnistor också i mossbeklädda tråkfulgrådaskiga novemberdagar. 

jag utmanar er att finna fina finurligheter under finlands kanske fisigaste månad!

som liten var det årets höjdpunkt. det hade knappast att göra med att jag fyller sent i november och råkar kallas lilla my ;)

the last pumpkin


this was my masterpiece, as maniac as it's artist ;)

giorgia happened to pop in too. it was her boyfriend who cheated with the pumpkin ;)

bubbly italian giorgia and i have a common friend in paris.

 

05.11.2013 kl. 05:05

triangle drama


we and the other kids carved pumpkins!

they became so sweet that he fell in love, but his girlfriend just watched from the side.


also the "froyo aunt" dressed up for the evening. she stands beside the young owner.

this girl carved the perfect pumpkin.

04.11.2013 kl. 18:18

destiny


it was not so bad after all that i had to change plans and remain in town saturday evening. sometimes things are just meant to be.

stressing like a monster ->  happy as a kid.
 


yesterday's hõõgvein made me long for christmas - in october!

29.10.2013 kl. 17:17

the tallinn treasure


through the window of the café i saw a sign: the photo fair of estonia 25-27.10.
right around the corner!
 


all the texts were in estonian, but i got some inside information from some of the cool artists.
he was an architect. 
 

29.10.2013 kl. 10:10

morning mystery


it rained and so did my nose.
on top of that saturday turned out totally different than our plan.

empty questions and worries while working at her appartement.
i turned out i was not going home this day.

the flegmatic outdoor grayness worked well on my nerves. 
 


i orientated through old town towards lunch at comfortable f-hoone in the arty blocks.




me: i must say you have the coolest hair!

the turquoise waitress: actually you look very cool yourself. i like tiny people. i'm tiny myself.

she convinced me to take another cup of green tea latte. yes - it served a purpose ;)

28.10.2013 kl. 13:13

cousin celebration


matilda has now lived for a decade and we celebrated her with princess cake
 


from our family she got "fashion" and from me a very special necklace.
 



 

21.10.2013 kl. 09:47

cold days need warm company


i had no lectures at uni, so joined my friend's photography class. in the small town she lives there are not many exhibitions, that's what brought them here.

janccu turns 21 and is an idol for me. that's why i made her a silver necklace with the text ...
 


... photographer! but in swedish.

never say never


blogging is awesome, although i once said i would never start one ;)

it is a diary that forces me to be alert and creative. but the camera is a heavy clump to carry around every day,  i never survive with just one bag.

after 100 days it is time for a change. i still want to update often and keep the focus on photos, but not necessarily on daily basis. maybe some poetry every now and then? 

what would you like to see and read?
from you i wish loud and frequent commenting.
petite μ likes a good discussion.

please also check out another photo project i just joined:
humans of helsinki

85: spring feelings in autumn dullness


soon the sea looks like the crackeled car window. i want to break the trend and stop us from moving towards colder and darker times. i am already grumpy and cold enough due to the never ending flu.



seeing some hope between the ventilation grid.  

dreaming away to may during the photo club's competition. the autumn leaves outside remind me of the cruel reality.



65 anynymous photos and honourable mentions to all four members of my family - almost too good to be true.

my three photos are the pepsodent smiling zebra, the blue church and the dancing dolls.

i guess we must be a good team then: hugs home!

80 1/2: on the other side of the waterfall



mariefors may be calm and picturesque, but also gives room for the local mc club. i could not resist the ash trays with cute skulls, so climbed up the stairs ... surely not to heaven ;)

also the virginia creepers chose to climb up up up the walls of the hospital.


nature and architecture in cooperation. this is how i prefer it.

80: three hundred photos


i am a member of the nordic countries oldest photo club. we headed towards mariefors for our yearly autumn trip.

result: around 300 pictures. here comes selection one (excluding the secret candidates saved for the competition).

only 45 min driving from home and still the colour cascade of the seasonal change was far ahead of helsinki.



romantic functionalism around the mental hospital. i believe in quicker recovery in picturesque surroundings near nature.



my flu forced my to take breaks, but no problem when kinuskilla was around. 

cutlery in a brown bag = genious.

almost too good to be true that so many customers had chose to spend their september saturday in the seemingly "middle of nowhere".

farewell prejudice. the factory buildings reflected in the calm lake which turned into a small water fall.

well, this don't seem to have been a long running race - prefect for slow and ill me.

(even this short and) i cheat. this is a dubble exposure (two images on top of each other) of the start and finish.

79: comme j'HABIT(ARE) à l'avenir


drugged my flu and headed towards habitare after my lectures.



tea bags in tree, the petite μ stool and a petite greenhouse ... my birthday is pretty soon you know ;)

design lamps make my drool.

notice the news paper igloo. i don't care about its purpose, it's cool!

another cool "house" was this huge safety reflector.


continuing the colour splash!

my legs turned yellow and blue
not caused by the flu
(... thank god)
the art piece scans through:
i'm finlandssvensk, that's true

... like the bathing duck above ;)

also my creativity seems to float at my these artsy parts of habitare: ahead! and trash design:

plus de francais, plus des pommes pour les chouettes, and more magazines on my wall.

77: mio min mio


mio - apple perfectionism: pretty sweet and sour.
 

 

a friend called for charity concert company this evening. Who says no to free and fancy music for the good of sick children?

the idols of today's youth but also glimpses of artists from the 90s - when we were young and crafted signs to wave with at in this very same arena. we smiled with nostalgia and felt old an wise, like giraffes.

fun to once be able to calmly gaze over the sea of 10-year old heads. but the sad thing was that i wasn't much taller.

here a favourite of mine from some years back: reddrama.



i dropped some tears for the struggling children in the videos between the songs. blue and shiny like the palettes on my blouse.

mio, my son by Astrid Lindgren is what struck my mind on my way home. a beautiful fairy tale about a boy raised up in difficult conditions.

he overcomes his problems and i hope the nearly 300 000 euros collected at elämä lapselle has the same effect.

75: tough timetable

 

rushing from place to place. i don't mind a high pace when the tasks are interesting: school substitute, study visit, sweaty yoga and secret planning.



on my way home for the first time today. left the secret meeting in tölö feeling exited.



signed a contract for some artsy stuff. that is all i can utter.

64: yes, i'm a morning person


getting up at 6am by free will is not easy i admit, but why snore in bed when you can gaze over a slumbering city from cool yoga asanas
i was almost disgustingly efficient this morning. trained and fresh i strolled to school to eat my ready-made breakfast and do home work - before my uni day from 10 - 17.

art is where you least expect it to be, but only if you seize the day and keep your eyes open. one good thing with not being able to bike ...

dad luckily solved my serious withdrawal symptoms by learning how to fix my dear bike.

i followed him out on the country side ... well espoo to chill with the family and the neighbour's dog.

coco melts my heart like ... coconut ice cream? 



too adorable for a watch dog. we mingle in peace.

59: cleaning day

9:30 - 16 cleaning up my closet. the whole city turns into a flea market for a day. not very profitable, but many happy customers to chat with.


the cleaning continued at my parent's house. they are returning from the isle of skye tonight.

gazing through the window at what used to be my home. still always welcome.which colour are the stripes on a zebra?
white i say. like the book shelves and the light rays.

big thoughts starts to spin after midnight, which does not necessarily lead to a clever outcome ;)

this kept me awake while waiting for the travellers to land. j'adore monsieur figue ;)

57: bad luck?

kitchen, telephone and camera have more or less broken. today my bike helmet was stolen, but it was locked so the thief had to break it. no sense at all.

but the bright side:

1) i "have to" eat lunch outside with friends. this time student price.

stella's dessert was as happily (notice the vanilla sauce smile) overwhelming as her personality

2) i had to replace my too wellused helmet ... and maybe the wardrobe as well? selling clothes tomorrow at siivouspäivä (pikku myyn putiikki).

 

3) seems like the curse follows my neighbours too: 7 years of bad luck for them - a nice picture for me, don't you think ;) ?

55: lazy days feat. butter goose

translate the last words into swedish ...
say hello to janccu's gluten free butter birdie ;)

the result of a funny sleepover,
maybe she got inspired by me talking and laughing in the sleep? yes, she actually heard me laughing.

i swam in the sea, bought local maize, fried some chantarelles - trying to maximise what's left of summer.

50: la lune brille tout la nuit de l'art


happy photo nerds walk towards the train station where I'm participating in an exhibition

people we passed by: singing, selling hats, hammering silver, chilling and pole dancing

the design museum closed too early, but pas des problèmes when the city finally crawls out of its pupa

got a rose, new friends, bumped into old aquantainces

almost blinded of all light shows, brilliant jewellery and the full moon

48: practicing for the night of arts



warming up with loch ness before a serious cultural evening


art goes kapakka at kitch, but the music wasn't kitch at all: electrical sounds from muscle contraction



no talking. other friends joined and we headed to an outdoor movie showing Baraka - amazing!



yeah, I met a blue beaver earlier today and could not resist welcoming him to my blog ;)

47: espoo ciné evening

first funny body combat with a friend. then she gave me a free ticket to the movie festival
... and the evening just never stopped surprising: a free pastry from a French baker.


the magical mood made me spot geometrical beauty: snail formations, an artifical orion's belt and more spacial figures hiding the metro constructions.

42: rain drops are falling

... from my eyes. Not the ideal weather for starting the summer vacation.

 

Luckily a haircut and a dinner guest made my day taste like saffron <3 - litterary ;)
