Default Lonely old Finnish teacherage

And old and lonely Finnish teacherage... deep in the Finnish forest...

I realize this is with a Nokia N95... all I can do until I get my Pentax K-7. Anyway, I am terribly sorry if this shot seems blurry. Mobile phones have no IS.

I tried hard to keep details of the snow in the picture, though the weather went from intense sunlight to cloudy overcast skies. We got a little snow last night, but Spring is on the way!

Ned, you're going to be outright dangerous when you get that K-7!!

Well framed Eetu. We're all waiting the tax office to hurry up, cause as we said before, if you shot so good with a phone camera, with a K7 you'll be on fire!

Eetu,

Second Ordo on the framing. That snow looks eatable, delicious

Thanks, Jehan! Well, I pay 22,5% what you would call "state tax"... I am just chuffed to bits that "Samu Eno" (Finnish "Uncle Sam") has a generous return. So, I have some money saved up, and with the return I can get the camera and a good lens. Many thanks for kind words. Ned

Muchas gracias / Tack så mycket, Ordo and Torgny! Appreciate your taking the time to look at this mobile phone photo... Torgny, I spent a little time, setting the camera's sensitivity, its whitebalance, etc, so I could get as much detail in the snow... the wood of the building... and the trees. As I mentioned, I am in a cottage, tucked away deep in the Finnish forest, I return to the city (home) this evening. The biggest problem I have with the camera... UNTIL I GET A REAL ONE!!! the problem I struggle with is that these cameras are so jok'n light and small. Soooo, when you click the shutter release, it is hard NOT to move the camera. Well, don't how the weather is where you are, but it is really snowing now... I thought Spring was coming! Take care! Har det så bra / onnea ja menestystä! Ned

I agree. A pleasent scene in the country. A Phone Camera? You're kidding right?

He's not kidding. It's humilliating, isn't it? Phone camera and no p&p.
Look:



We should quit photography once he gets the k7.
