Make Sense, Not War



Nikon D90, Nikkor 24 mm AI, ISO 200, f/8, 4 s.

Two years ago I wouldn't have believed that Russia would annex Crimea and attack Ukraine. With that and with so many other wars the message of the photograph, Make Sense, Not War, is highly topical. This is my fourth take on Metro Photo Challenge 2014, please vote here.

Yabusame

From Metro Photo Challenge 2014

Nikon D90, Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM, f/2.8, 1/1000 s, ISO 900.

In June a Japanese samurai group visited Helsinki, Finland. One of the hightlights was a yabusame ceremony at the field of Laakso. I got a few nice shots and this is one of my favourites. It's also my second take on Metro Photo Challenge 2014. Please vote for me here and feel free to share the photograph.

Farther Christmas

From Farther Christmas

Farther Christmas, Helsinki, Finland, Nikon D90, Nikkor 24 mm AI f/2.8, ISO 200, f/8.

Abandonded places, or as in this case, a boat named Farther Christmas can have their own kind of special photographical attraction. When I saw this wreck I immediately knew I had to shoot it in the dark.

This is my first take at Metro Photo Challenge 2014. Please vote for this image if you like the picture.
