I left Shanghai mid-January for a short Spring Festival vacation in Miami and was supposed to return by the end of January.
Oh how my plans changed... Corona virus, vital life decisions, learning to close chapters and making choices. As soon as you close one door, a multitude of new options arise and while the excitement is thrilling, I do crave restoring my routine and some order in my life. 

But yes, the same suitcase I went to Miami with - all the bikinis, shorts, skirts... With my changed travel plans, I ended up with these summer clothes in the middle of freezing Tallinn winter. Glad I at least brought my pair of Docs - flip flops and snow don't go well together.

I miss my life in Shanghai already. Looking at this photo is bittersweet. 

New York / Part Deux

Film I shot over November to January, finally developed. 
Here are the shots from New York, I'll follow up with my Miami holiday in a separate post.

Shanghai to Miami & New York

Jaa, ma olen veel siin!

Ma pole vist kunagi päriselt aru saanud, kuidas keegi blogimisest ära väsida saaks, aga siin ma olen - aasta peale viimase postituse avaldamist. Selle aasta sisse on mahtunud arusaamine, et mulle kohe üldse ei sobinud eelmine (väga kuivik) töökoht, nii et vahetasin peale viit kuud tööd. Elu on liiga lühike ning see oli minu aeg, mida ma raiskasin.

Shanghai Sunset
As the seasons change, the sunsets in Shanghai become even more vivid and memorable.

November via Minolta / Ilford Pan

Ah, film... I'm so happy I've gotten more into this and started taking more photos. The moments my cameras have caught on film are somehow more atmospheric and meaningful, and have taken me to places I'd normally wouldn't end up at. So here we go - my first Ilford Pan version!

October on Film / Seagull DF-1


I'd bought a locally produced camera back in September - an SLR Seagull from 1969.

I spent the second week of October in Taipei
Somehow I thought I'll never return after that one trip there, but there I was again.
