I'm a Data systems specialist from Finland, a mom of two pre-teen/teen girls. My most time-consuming hobbies are music, photography and computers related to those and blogging. My girls and I love horses and we all go riding regularly.
Photography is something that came to me sort of by accident. It started creeping into my life a few years ago and by now I think I've lost the battle. I've shown my photos in one small exhibition a few years ago and I've been pretty successful in the competitions of a (very small) camera club. I've also done some photographing and writing for a couple of magazines.
However, I'm very much an amateur and struggle with learning this beautiful form of art. I find it especially difficult to see which picture (of mine) actually is good and which isn't. Very often I don't understand the competition judges' decisions at all!
Ah, well, life's just a huge learning curve. Maybe I'm learning something, too. Slowly.
Info about my gear, some of my work and some words about struggling with and rambling about photography and related issues can be found in my photoblog:
