Venice Grand Canal in Summer


Love this image of the boat traffic on the Grand Canal in Venice at the end of June 2017.

Autumn Shades on a Finnish Lake Photo


September Finnish Lake with autumn and fall hues.

The weather is still nice in Helsinki. Took a bike ride yesterday out to Espoo and the colours of the trees are developing nicely.

Helsinki Panorama

The summer goes on in Helsinki this month. Just checked the weather forecast and the sun will be here for the foreseeable future.

Vappu balloon sellers in Helsinki

It’s Vappu  today, the most enjoyable day in Finland. Gifting a balloon is a custom here and buying one is expensive on the street, €25 is what I hear. Not surprising that lots of vendors are around already. 

Tech in a Madrid Café in 2003

Madrid Café 2003
Madrid Café 2003

This is what I used for on-the-go tech in 2003 sitting in a café in Madrid. A Psion 5mx and a brick Nokia mobile phone  The Psion had a great form factor that had a keyboard that was just big enough for touch-typing and small enough to fit into a jacket pocket. It also had the wonderful benefit of being distraction-free. 

Not forgetting the camera, a Canon Powershot S30. A remarkably pocketable device for the time.
