Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

002 - water

This is my second photo in the BIG Photo Challenge. This photo has taken with Canon IXUS 100 IS. The theme of this week, "Water", is what I love.

This photo is from Naantali which is a idyllic city in south-western Finland near by the Baltic. It's also one of the most important tourist centers of Finland. I have lived there about ten first years in my life until we moved away. This city is always in my heart and it has     a huge effect on me and I'll never forget my time there. So, water is a peace of my life and it's really important thing in my life.

I just love that place! Maybe I'll move there when I have grown-up. If you sometimes visit in Finland, visit there. It's really worth it!

P.S. Did you know that Moomin World theme park is located in the city? I have been there many times in my childhood.

001 - old

This is my first photo in the BIG Photo Challenge. This challenge is quite interesting because I love photographing though I've taken photos just five years (during this photo just three years). I have taken this photo on June, 2008. This photo has taken with my first own camera (Samsung Digimax S500).

This photo is taken in Turku, Finland. It was a sunny day when I walked near Aura River with my friends and family. I think it's a beautiful place and everyone have to go there if they visit here, in Finland.

When I read the theme of this week, "Old", this photo came in to my mind. I think it represent this theme pretty good. Maybe everyone noticed, that car is Volkswagen Beetle (Volkswagen "Kupla" as we say in Finnish). That car was really old with its old number plates. The building on the background is also really old. It's old brewery which has built in 1880s. I like its old style really much.

about me

I have born on Oct 1st in 1993. My interests are photographing, reading (you can find me in Shelfari), shopping, dreaming, relaxing, other languages and cultures, and lot of other things. I collect perfumes, shoes, good books, postcards and stamps. Cameras which I use are Samsung Digimax S500 and Canon IXUS 100 IS. My biggest idols are Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. They were very talented and beautiful women.

I have many dreams. Most of my dream is about traveling. For example I would love to travel to Barcelona, Madrid, NY, LA, Miami, Las Vegas, Caracas, London, Paris, Milano, and Shanghai. My the biggest dream is travel to Spain. Actually I'll travel to Barcelona on Oct. I love Spain!
