53 pictures, 53 weeks, a bit more than one year…
Is it enough time to observe all the subtle movements of sunlight, all the shadow play, all the colour change as the season go by, from the crystal white of snow to the tasty green of spring to the peony fire of summer and the final fade away of autumn? We were plunged into the midst of this feast (we nicknamed it Light & Nature and then it developed into something that is hard to embrace and therefore hard to find a name that could possibly carry all the beauty, all the connotations of it) thanks to our co-author and contributor, our friend and a brilliant photographer Pirjo Lindfors.
Week by week, every Sunday there appeared a post on our Facebook page with an image that had been taken by Pirjo when she had been on a photo-hunt somewhere out there in the oh-so-distant and oh-so-beautiful Finland. And everytime it was a complete and utter surprise!
Paying homage to our friend with those small quick collages and wishing her all the best and her book to be published soon (we are queuing for the autograph 🙂
Kiitoksia paljon Pirjo!

TORONTO, CANADA. ROM aka Lee-Chin Crystal designed by Daniel Libeskind in collaboration with the Toronto-based bureau Bregman + Hamann does not look like anything connected to natural history and world cultures! Well, the jagged geometry is kinda reminiscent of a gem stone as it is said to have been inspired of… but in its very deconstructive way.
Looks like the new structure of the museum has erupted from the ground and torn the bricked old building of the museum hosting the expositions before – and the interior continues to play with the contrasts and conflicts between the old and the new.
DUBAI, UAE. Rolex tower undoubtedly stands out of the fence of tall buildings populated Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road. Not only its ruled geometry but effect on a daylight and moonlit landscape that impress.
Pass it at noon, and the zenith Sun twinkles you across the sequence of opaque and transparent glass panels. Stop by after sunset and hundreds of sparkles flow down a colossal coal.
