Yearbook 2014

To continue the tradition(?) I made a yearbook for 2014 too.

Winter

I haven’t been in a mood for photography lately, but I did have my camera with me in couple of walks. Trees seem to have nice snow cover on them so got some pictures before the years end. Light in the dark picture is taken in day light but it was a bit dull so I played with it in photoshop and made it a dusk image.

Black Christmas

It’s that time of the year
Madness rears its ugly head
Pollution for all senses
I wish I could stay in bed
 
I hate all those carols
Don’t want to hear a single song
It is opium for the masses
None of which I feel to belong
 
I hate all that pretention
Good conscious at any price
Sweat and tears are on sale
Blood sucked by all those lies
 
My Christmas is black
No gifts to give, nor to receive
There is no more faith left in me
No known god in which to believe
 
It will be black Christmas
Just like the ones before
It feels like hell, only frozen
 
It will be black Christmas
Just like the ones before
Its spell I cannot get broken
 
My Christmas is black
There is no other way
The eve of destruction
With my life I could pay
 
The candle on my grave
I do not want your charity
I just wish I could see
The end of this insanity
 
My Christmas is black
A tunnel with no light
Boxing Day at best
At last turns to a night
 
My Christmas is black
And I wish it was over
My Christmas is black
And I wish I was sober
My Christmas is black
And I wish it was over
My Christmas is black
And I wish I was sober

Lyric by Jari Hämynen

… And Merry Christmas to you, too …

New Studio Setup

I have an old laptop which doesn’t have a working keyboard and mouse (Fanta and keyboards don’t work together nicely). With bluetooth mouse and keyboard it’s still usable in studio so I bought a laptop stand for the tripod. Self portraits should be a bit easier now.
