The Extraordinary Ordinary - Wintry Muffin-Tops, Finland...


It's interesting how both snow and sand can, when present in quantity, 'buffer' - even out - their settings, providing an almost Pompeian dilution of details and features of the objects on which they lay. Granted, snow is usually seasonal whilst sand often occupies a bit more permanent, and thus perhaps more permeating, presence.

The included photos are probably a first submission of pictures from a series, all taken during a recent trip to Finland... As different as the context - in regards to their climate, nature vernacular and culture is - it's inviting to look for and speculate about the similarities between a country in northern Europe and a nation in the Gulf...

Lovely pictures Tom. And how you must have welcomed some wintery weather after the heat of Qatar! Love to the ladies.

Thanks Sophie...

Finland was very lovely and seasonal... Right now Qatar is not too bad though, with about +18 in the morning and low 20ies in the afternoon...

Happy greetings to your family too...
