Last year was extremely busy, but at the same time very enjoyable. It was the first full year back in Finland (although I went to US, Sweden, Germany, Canada, Portugal and Japan during the year), and it may well be that it was the last one for a while.
If nothing else, at least we are planning to spend three months in Germany next year with the family. The girls will again have time to be together and I will be busy with some experimentalists. I'm very excited to see what comes out from this collaboration.
Last year also ended my second photo-a-day photo project. All shots are available here or by clicking the image below (one of my favorites from the year).
The first time I ever did this was in 2008. This old gallery is available here. Being completely honest, I feel that I was much more creative back then. Perhaps it was a combination of the birth of a child, new country, finishing my PhD and having a new job. Everything just was so awesome in 2008! Here's one of my favorites:
Since I seem to be unable to stop this now, and since my last year was far-from-ok, I decided to go for it again this year. Below you'll find the first three shots for the year.
