Stockholm in August

We had our vacation near the end of August this year and decided to go to Stockholm for a few days. We moved from Sweden back to Estonia close to a year ago and it seemed like a good time to head back to see our friends and eat our favorite morotsmuffins. The trip was incredible fun. The weather was very good (especially our first day in Stockholm) and we managed to go through most of the places we wanted […]

Summer full of pictures

I thought it would be a good test for both the camera and my own abilities and it really was. There was little to no light that would fall nicely on the subjects face and my ISO was up around 1600-3200 with shutter speeds getting quite critical for […]

Jim Ashilevi “Kehade mets”

Yesterday Jim Ashilevi presented his new book “Kehade mets” in a bookstore in Tallinn. I was quite excited about the book and so was Eva so we decided to go. The presentation itself was really fun. Jim had a dialogue with his friend and fellow writer Sass Henno and took questions from the audience. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and the discussion was a lot of fun while exploring many of the topics from the book to a more […]
