Inspiration of today

 One should always be wary if one friend accuses another of crime;
(Added chapter) Truth will be revealed, sooner or later;
Cooperation among friends is vital to their survival;
Mental strength and deceit are stronger in warfare than brute force;
One must be careful not to betray friends, especially guarding against one's own tendencies towards foolishness; and
One should be wary of hasty judgements.
as  put in "Kalila wa Dimna "

Found this from my archives, from last summer's journeys. Not sure yet whether to use it or not.. I'm  more into open space now.

Rain after a long walk

Some photos from my instagram (you can find me with the name iirislilja there). I've been using the film camera more now so it takes a while before I have photos to show from those. It's been a bit more springy here. Village is peaceful and Paris beautiful.. Starting to like this combination a lot..

So far I've been photographing quite many interesting things here in Grez-Sur-Loing.. Old medieval environment inspires now more than Paris with its modern people and commercial areas.. Though the rush there is also somehow fascinating.

My new neighbour, a little dove and some winterflowers. When the spring comes this placce will be full of swallows. There used to be a nest on my window.

The village

Here i was photographing on film also. Amazing place. Flood was bringing rusty boats and pieces of wood with it. Current was fast and the water freezing. 

i walk the line

My new residency in the French countryside, a little village near Paris. In the night you can see stars clearer than anywhere. In the morning I watched pigeons walk on the rooftops. The streets are narrow and houses so old. Medieval church and bridge are just outside. The residency (blue building) seems to be in the centre of the village, with boulangerie and one restaurant. I have a separate studio for working with huge windows.
