The Grey Land

Create Your Own

These photos were taken at Kyläsaari and Kalasatama in Helsinki. Waste land, old harbour -a deserted resort in the middle of Helsinki.
But not for long.

Last chance to take these photographs. Soon the area is going to be modern, urban and expensive, and the crows will have to fly to new pastures to find their food.

The Wind

The wind so brisk,
so fresh the breeze
on my skin,
in my heart.
Pure and new.
Like myself.

To start all over again.
Without you.

No more
stale thoughts,
the stink of
booze lingering in my nostrils.
No more you.

I feel the wind.

The Blaze of the Sky

This photo was taken today,
at 16.30 or 4.30PM.
The sun was shining today, as she did yesterday too,
and the clear blue sky turned in the afternoon into
a pink, purple and orange coloured blaze.

I searched for your soul,
I reached for your body.

Found nothing.

The mere cold touch
of your flesh.

The Perfect Object

The smoothness of her skin
the elegance of her eyes
the tranquillity of her lips.

She’s perfect and she knows it.
That’s all she has to do.

Be smooth and just perfect.
Be still and hush up.




She was photographed here.

The Independence Day

Today is the Independence Day of Finland and Finland celebrates its 90th birthday. There are going to be festivities all around the country, but the main event will be the reception held at the presidential castle in the evening. Finland’s President and her husband throw a party for about 2000 people –politicians, artists, actors, writers, sportsmen, executives, some ordinary people, too. The gathering is broadcasted alive and all those who were not invited to the party, sit at home on their sofas and look at the somewhat stiff-looking merrymaking in TV.

The Finnish way of celebrating the independence of the nation isn’t something you’d call a carnival. No, the Finnish way is to celebrate such an occasion with dignity, modesty, and humbleness. Laughter for nothing is forbidden, because the independence was gained by war, defended by war and we all know that war demands offers: dead soldiers and civilians, dead happiness and laughter, and still –after decades- the laughter is forbidden.

On such a day, you have to remember the times when the nation was “all for one –one for all”. You have to admire the spirit of those days, the oneness that people felt, the sacrifices one was willing to do for the country.

On days like this, I always feel that people wish there would be a war going on again, because during no other period, the times have been so good when considered the mental state of a nation. Only then, there was bravery, honesty, modesty, unselfishness, and respect for the others.

A national feeling demands a mutual enemy, preferably a war. Otherwise, a nation isn’t anything. It loses its moral, its strength, its honesty, and its power.

An Independence Day is for me a day to remember how important an enemy is for a nation.

I think it’s weird.
Or am I?
