Have been trying to shoot a flying dragonfly for a while now. It has proven to be incredibly difficult, since the camera keeps focusing on the background. This one turned out fairly decent, though :)

I'm going to write a lot more about this in the coming days but the most important takeaway from my first few days of switching my main development machine to Linux (Pop!_OS 18.04)?

I. Do. Not. Miss. The. Mac. One. Bit.

Everything Just Works (tm), including my USB-C-only LG external monitor (which doesn't even work with Laura's older MacBook Pro), Magic Trackpad, etc. And there are things I actually enjoy more about the experience. Never thought I'd be writing this about Linux. Exciting times!

While crawling under a tree fallen over a path, I noticed a highway of ants running on the tree trunk above me. Shooting upwards against the sunlight gave a nice light for the photo

The girls at the local coffee shop were in awe of my mamiya C220. I handed it over to them so they could look down the viewfinder and their eyes lite up. Their reactions put a smile on my face. I have a love hate for moments like this. On the one hand people are immediately amazed at such a device but I hate that these great cameras are treated as relics of a time forgotten. In 2018 this camera is still doing what it did close to 50 years ago, can't say that about my cell phone.

Goldcrest is the smallest bird species in Finland (maybe also of Europe). Surviving a nordic winter exclusively on insects and spiders is an astonishing deed. For this fluff ball the worst was behind :)

It was coming down the very boulder I was resting my head on, maybe 30 cm from me.

One warm spring day few years ago I was napping in a forest, leaning my head on a side of a boulder and enjoying the sun. After a while I noticed something moving at the corner of my eye, thinking it was a twig swaying in a breeze. Nope, it was this beauty. I think I got up rather quickly to get some shots of her 😅

The fall of Gondolin va être publié cet été chez HarperCollins

#Tolkien #FallofGondolin
Alan #Lee

"There is Morgoth of the uttermost evil, unseen in this story but ruling over a vast military power from his fortress of Angband. Deeply opposed to #Morgoth is #Ulmo, second in might only to #Manwë, chief of the #Valar. But he works in secret in Middle-earth to support the Noldor, the kindred of the Elves among whom were numbered Húrin and Túrin Turambar."
