The Big Adventures of the Little Mole

8

Well, I told every one of my friends and family that I would spend a couple of months in Finland. But honestly, I sent a little friend as a substitute.

The little mole only knew a few things about Finland before he left for his new adventures in the far north. He only heard that the Finns eat nothing but licorice and that the winter takes almost the whole year. At the end of his travels, he knew that this was not the whole truth and he returned with many impressions – not only from Finland, but also from Tallinn and Saint Petersburg.

Of course, the little mole visited the typical sights of Helsinki, such as the sea fortress Suomenlinna, the Sibelius Monument and the Seurasaari open air museum. And of course, he also traveled to Lapland and spent all of the evenings in the sauna. In Saint Petersburg, he enjoyed the numerous historic buildings, but also had a bit too much vodka so that some of his memories are quite fuzzy.

During his adventures the little mole also had met some nice guys, like the Finnish national ice hockey team, the Christmas goat “joulupukki”, the naughty seagulls at the Baltic Herring Market in Helsinki and his almost-twins – the Matroschka dolls.

When the little mole returned, he noticed that he has gained some weight. Did he eat too much of the Finnish pastries? But korvapuusti, pulla and piirakka were so delicious so that the little fellow could not resist.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!

    Fresh from the Lab: Hari Raya Portraits

    A couple of weeks ago, my family and I celebrated Hari Raya after a month of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Since the first day I laid my hands on the Lubitel 166+, I've always had the thought of taking portraits of my family. So this year, I finally took them. Here they are: Hari Raya Portraits!

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    Seeking the Elusive 'Decisive Moment' in Foreign Cities

    Some of the photos I took during my trips to Penang and Singapore may pass as street photography, but to be honest, they were more like my feeble attempts to capture 'decisive moments' that I don't usually find at home.

    My Day in Analogue: Weekends in Bandung

    Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    My First Indisposable Project

    The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
