  29. Maybe a change of pace is in order – I’m going to suggest that you try the Travel Photo 10 day challenge. 10 travel pics (and you take such great ones!), no commentary necessary, although I’ve been shown the example of crediting the person who suggested you, and suggesting others with whose pictures you’ve been impressed. I’ve really enjoyed going through older photos, and seeing how my eye has developed, and choosing the best from what’s on the computer.

  30. Bonjour Matti,
    Tous mes bons voeux pour cette nouvelle année, après une pause qui j’espère aura permis de retrouver tonus et motivation pour les balades.
    La photo des arbres enneigés est superbe.
    A bientôt sur le nouveau blog.

    • Hello Mabel.

      Thank you loving my music. Our world is full of gorgeous forgotten music. Some day I will add more. I am still considering to leave this blog, due to its new editor. That is why I have started a new blog in French.

      Have a wonderful day!

    • Hello Carl.

      I did find this place in Internet, when I searched live cams and other things. I would love to visit there some day. If going there, you must search a hotel nearby beach where landing planes can be watch them.

      I did find a Web Cam in the town of Kokkola. We made a visit there and the Web Cam showed us in the corner of the street which we selected. I watched it in my phone seeing us and took a screen capture. It was a nice idea.

      I recorded in February one-minute lasting video from that Web Cab. Here:

      Thank you. All the best to you. Matti

  36. Heyyyyyy Hope that you are doing well. I see that you’ve taken a pause here for a minute, I’m just getting back from a pause myself. Didn’t know I was in need of one but looks like I did 🙂 I am sorry I caught you on a break but glad I caught this last post as the drums on this music THE DRUMS and the beat and the song rock! Thanks for sharing. i’ve heard the tune before but hadn’t seen the drums played on it. High five! Plus these airplane pics were a trip, totally close landing. Sending out some good vibes your way and hope that you are doing well during your pause.
