Journal History


so, after weeks of travelling, my camera bag was stolen in helsinki the day i was supposed to go back home to morocco. in it were all my photos from a week in jordan and 2 weeks in wintery finland, plus my camera gear, laptop, external hard drive, passport and phone. by some miracle of working bureaucracy perhaps, i managed to get new passport photos and a passport in time for my flight, even though the stuff was stolen 5 hours before i left the country.

the biggest material loss was the camera and lenses, but what i mourn most were the photos themselves. the things that are of no worth to the thief, of course. i wish i could reach him and tell him to keep everything else, just give me the memory cards.

anyway, things could be a lot worse. everything, except the photos, can be replaced in time. i still have my old camera, too, so it's not like i won't be able to take photos. this is perhaps a good reason to go back to jordan, which i absolutely loved, by the way. i had a marvellous three weeks of travelling, it was just the last day that sucked. and even that day ended well thanks to wonderfully helpful people and coming home to my family in morocco on time.

looking forward to taking new photos and slowly aquiring new gear,

Nice gallery I've found while searching for "Tvärminne" on deviantArt (one never knows) !
I'm doing my fieldwork there right now, and enjoying every bit of it !
Thanks for sharing your pics.

Great to hear that you found something, and that you're getting to spend your summer in Tvärminne! I did field work there for 5 summers; it's a very dear place to me.

Have a great time, thanks for checking out my gallery! :)

I can definitely understand why people working regularly here hold this place dear.
Hehe, it's also fun to recognize some of the ants people on your pictures :)
All my best goes to you !

Tosi hyviä, nättejä ja selkeitä/hyvänlaatusia kuvia sulla. Jollain tavalla tunnelmallisia ja siksi tykästyin niihin.
Tykkään erityisesti luonto- ja eläinkuvista, tosi kauniita. Mustavalkoiset kuvat varsinkin yltävät myös suosiooni, sekä kuvauksessa että piirrustuksissa yleensäkkin.

Suurkiitokset, tosi kiva kuulla! Mieluiten hengailisin vain luonnossa ottamassa kuvia... Mutta joskus tulee toisenlaisiakin kuvia. Kiva että pidät näistä!

Luonto on kyllä ihana paikka. Ja eläimet varsinkin (siksi eläintenhoitajan ammattiin päädyinkin), löytää aina jotain mielenkiintoista ja kaunista.
Pidän ja paljon!

Really enjoying your gallery, thank you :)
Can I ask if you are happy with your Canon as I am thinking of getting one?
raido-ehwaz Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012  Professional Photographer
it makes me glad to hear that, thank you! :)

i'm quite happy with my canons (i have a 400d and a 5d), yeah. which one are you thinking of getting? nikon's cameras are also supposed to be very good, in some ways better than canon, depending on which camera you compare with which, of course (i'm not very good at this competition between canon and nikon thing).

good luck with getting your new camera!
