Profile Short version:

 

"Wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend ..... writer, photographer, in love with life. Two wonderful years on Flickr! "

  

Profile Longer version:

 

Born in Helsinki, Finland, spent my childhood in Finnish Lapland, grew up in Vancouver, Canada, and now live in Utah. Married. Five children, and five grandchildren. They are the joy of my life! BA in English Lit and History.

 

Write biographies for a living. Am a nature lover and have been an avid birder for over 10 years.

 

Flickr is a hobby not a way of life! ~ I'm strictly an amateur photographer but that's OK with me! I do it for the enjoyment. Seeing something beautiful or fascinating and then trying to capture the moment is a reward in and of itself. Nature is my favorite subject ... more photo ops than then is time.

 

I believe in the Law of Attraction. When you visualize the good, it will come! My hope is to promote beauty and peace through the universal language of photography. My equipment: Panasonic DMC-118.

 

Now I have the added bonus of wonderful new friends and contacts met through Flickr!

GEORGIA O'KEEFE

 

People were always clamoring to know the secret to Georgia O'Keefe's marvelous flower paintings. I love this quote! It always makes me laugh (of course she was speaking in jest! ):

 

"I hate flowers. I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move."

- Georgia O'Keeffe

 

If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment. — Georgia O'Keefe

FAVORITE QUOTES

 

Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away.

 

"He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead, his eyes are closed." - Albert Einstein.

 

There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs. ~Ansel Adams

 

"We don´t make a photograph just with a camara, we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we had love." ~ Ansel Adams

 

When you see something beautiful, photograph it; it may never come again! — Katsumoto - The Last Samurai

 

People may forget what you said....

People may forget what you did.....

But people will never forget how you made them feel...

 

"Loppujen lopuksi ihmissuhteet ne antavat elämälle arvoa!"

 

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away." Henry David Thoreau

 

When words become unclear,

I shall focus with photographs.

When images become inadequate,

I shall be content with silence.

-- Ansel Adams

 

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does, the better. André Gide.

 

"If you truly love Nature, you will find Beauty everywhere." Vincent Van Gogh

 

~ I love flowers. They have treated me well. Have a wonderful day! ~

A long overdue testimonial for my dearest friend whom I met on flickr. I feel very honoured to know this beautiful, elegant and highly intelligent lady who encouraged me right from the beginning and has always had the time and energy to continue doing so. I just want to say that, in terms of photography, Leena's love of nature and a sense of what is beautiful shines through in each of her fantastic images. Her capture of places and flowers in particular, which feel alive and are luscious in colour, are not ones to be missed, as are her macros, which speak volumes about her skill as a photographer and her ability to pay attention to the finest of detail. What is even more amazing is that Leena's kind, caring and loving nature emanates through each piece that she produces so masterfully. I find myself magnetised by her amazing personality. The real reward of being on flickr is attaining Leena's true friendship. Leena, thank you for being such a supportive friend and for making my journey through flickr one of the best I have ever experienced. I am glad I found you. God bless.

Please allow me to tell you a few things about my dear friend Leena. I first met Bluebird here on flickr, quite by accident, I was new to this photo sharing insanity, and she guided me, and taught me the ropes, motivated me with her own photography, and always commented favorably on mine. Leena invited me to different groups, and nominated me for countless awards, and always with a kind word and, I know, a smile. At first I thought, how could this sweet woman take on so much time appreciating what I do? then I found out that she was spending this kind of interest, and appreciation on a countless number of other flickr friends. Her endless energy, effort, and caring for other people, is evident in her photostream. She can post an image, and in 30 minutes. a hundred flickr friends will crowd her stream with a hundred comments and awards. Leena, my dear friend, to you I say: "You are the best, and the greatest"!!
