This was a first test to build a nice looking photo gallery for a hobbyist photographer. I wished to present some photos in a clean way, not to write texts.

It soon turned out, though, that I published most of my photos in Facebook (earlier Google+) and Instagram, because it’s easier and more social. So the future of this site is open.

Photo products 

See my Society6 , Redbubble , Fine Art America and Crated. profiles for various photo products. Products vary on the sites and include eg postcards, prints, mugs, mobile skins, T-shirts, leggins, skirts, pillows, notebooks, stickers and shower curtains.

Stock photos

Some friends have encouraged me to offer my photos for stock photo sites. I tried first Dreamstime 2/2017 and was happy when the first photo was accepted.

You can find me also on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter (more).

Photos in Google+

You can find more of my photos on my personal Google+ profile under Photos and on my Google+ photo page, which I made because I post also other things on my personal profile and the photos won’t stand out so much.

I hosted a photo theme page Summer Photos and co-curated the Weekly Photo Project 2013 in Google+.

Pasi Örn kindly helped me with the layout of this site. Originally I put the photo in the blog post and the result was double images on the site: smaller was the blog post’s “featured image”, the bigger the one I’d added in the text field. The trick was to not put the image inside the blog post with the text, but only add it as a “featured image”.

I thank Vesa Linja-aho and Tarmo Toikkanen for the spark and knowledge for open licencing.
