Showing where he ended and the world began

The photographs were taken at the Elma event in Messukeskus, Helsinki, on November 11th.

We got 15 cm of heavy snow today. I didn't commute by bicycle, which was a wise decision as the road conditions were challenging in the afternoon. There is some snow shoveling in the program for the evening.

Last week it happened that alpacas became a symbol for those who resist nazis in Finland.

To touch its truth I punched my fist

The photographs were taken at Tremanskärr on November 5th.

This morning I went for a walk in Petikko, walking along the paths and taking photographs. It was rather quiet. I thought about neo-nazis and other such disturbances.
