Flickr Explore #37 on Friday, October 26, 2007 Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D AF 50mm f/8 1/640s ISO 200 www.taidemuseo.fi/english/veisto/index.html Swedish sculptress Eva Löfdahl won the 2004 open competition organised by the Suomen yrittäjien patsassäätiö, a Finnish foundation for entrepreneurs statues, to honour and acknowledge Finnish entrepreneurs with an impressive public art work. The work is situated at Kamppi between the new terminal and the former bus terminal building in the remaining Narinkka square in the north-east corner. The inauguration took place on 5th September 2006 in commemoration of the Day of the Finnish Entrepreneurs. The patron of the statue's conception is Matti Vanhanen, the Finnish Prime Minister. Eva Löfdal's wired structure work is made of aluminium and it's solid geometry represents the quasi-pattern construction concepted in 1973 by the mathematical physicist Roger Penrose, which is known today as Penrose tiling. The aluminium parts are in various open-cut forms whose exterior surface are constructed in 2 to 17 mm wide surfaces. The aluminium has a thin yellowish surface colour. The wired structure is ca. 6 metres in height. Inside the structure is a porous lava block prepared from special concrete reminiscent of black 'stone', which was was planned and prepared by the sculptor and concrete expert, Pertti Kukkonen. The black stone measures ca. 70 x 70 x 130 cm and on it's underside shines an intensive light.

Erika Nyström catching a serve at the Finnish Championships. This was my first time shooting beach volleyball. The weather condition were not perfect, but it gave a soft light. I had only my 135mm lens with me - the trusted partner in action. What shots are there to be taken? Where should I position myself? How could I minimize the background clutter of all the ads? How the hell can I catch the ball in frame? Lessons learned: 1. Go high, go low. The easiest way to get rid of the clutter. 2. Catch the ball. Freeze it or not, it has to be there. 3. Net action. 4. There's more to beach volleyball pictures than the fingers on the ass.

I had a great difficulty in selecting between two similar frames that I had of this. These two where consecutive frames on the same film: koti.welho.com/pjunno/temp/choosing_dilemma.jpg Hmmm... After some web searches it seems that the driver is Anton Evstifeev from Russia.

Followers of my 365 may remember that I posted a shot of a ski jump erected in one of the Squares in the centre of Helsinki. This brave soul was the first guy I saw having a go, and this is him coming to a fairly spectacular stop. If anyone knows who he is then let me know! :)

This is my brother Niklas. Today we ate a dinner at Nolla, browsed some shittiest movies in anttila department store and after that took a few photos in front of Kamppi shopping centre. Such a pleasant way to spend an evening. 5Dmk2 + 50mm 1.4 wide open.

On his way back to Kolkata from Amsterdam Sarbojit (and his colleague Kavi) visited us in Helsinki and gave us a memorable weekend. One can see the Kamppi shoping centre and the Sokos Hotel Presidentti in the background.

More freaky framing. Here I accidentally got the bike all the way to the left of the frame (the crop is straight out of camera) which works pretty well for this shot.

This one was quite silhouette-like out of the camera and I decided to emphasize the effect in processing. It probably needs a bit more work but I do like the effect.

Framing the shots with the 50 mm was pretty tough. This one was a bit of a misfire but I rather like the way it turned out (the crop is straight out of camera).
