Night 112 (365NOH goes Carelia)

Electrified (I'm kind of surpised that's a real word)
candle lantern in my parents' porch.
I think it looks pretty in dark.

Night 111 (365NOH goes Carelia)

O Alquimista.
To celebrate the Occult 111th Night I got carried away by Paulo Coelho.
You can see the egg-shaped Stone and a small bottle of the Elixir among
other nice objects.
Photo taken at the tool shed of my family's summer cabin.

Edit: 11 additional shots now available in Facebook page's Special Album "Alchemy"!

Night 109 (365NOH goes Carelia)

"Manhattan of Mansikkala".
These 14-storey apartment houses were a symbol of Modern Times when
they were built in early 80's. I'm not being dramatic or anything.

Night 108 (365NOH goes Carelia)

Illuminated cross of Imatrankoski Church over Vuoksi river.
I had a couple of photos that were technically better but
there was something so surreal in this one..

Night 107 (365NOH goes Carelia)

Fence and lights around some power grid-related stuff.
I have  no idea what they are but some high-voltage-
stay-away-or-you'll-die- things.

Night 106 (365NOH goes Carelia)

Koulukatu. That literally means "School Street".
I biked to school here. Or walked when there was
too much snow.

Night 105 (365NOH goes Carelia)

Well, I'm back in Imatra.
This is the train that brought me here on Track One
(they always remember to announce that.
There isn't Track 2 in Imatra.)

Night 104

Today was one of the shittiest days in a long, long time.
So I'm glad I got even some photo. This is Sturenkatu
when I finally got myself to go and buy something to eat.

Night 103

I got this weird divided view captured at Brahenkatu

Some extra shots in Facebook page's Leftover album!

Night 101 - Portrait Theme Week #6

I went to celebrate my best friend's birthday.
We stuffed ourselves with great home made food
and then sat down to watch a movie.
This is P just woken up.

Night 100 - Portrait Theme Week #5 & well, effin 100th Night!!!

It's 100th Night and I'm awfully proud for my project.
I got 0 (zero [nada]) answers to my Night 100 contest so I'll post whatever I want and drink the awful coffee myself. As usual.
Here you are:

Jenni feeling the love.

Night 97 - Portrait Theme Week #2

So, why I like to shoot photos without people? Well at least I don't depend on people actually being there when agreed. 
So this night's model not only didn't show up, she also blocked me from Facebook. Well I'm sorry I agreed to shoot you when you offered yourself to come.. my bad.
From now on I won't bother to use teenage amateurs, especially when every more experienced model I have contacted have agreed to work with me. 
Which is really great and I look forward to working with them.

Since it's not easy to find backup model in the middle of the night, here you have a portrait of the Working Mother statue (familiar from Night 5):

Night 95

Self portrait time again.
Obviously this required some Photoshop,
but I tried to keep manipulation as minimal as possible.
Only some cropping, scaling and blending done on the smaller me.
Everything else left as it was photographed.

Night 94

Tonight I went to listen & watch some asskicking blues bands at Sture 21.
Music is perhaps my weakest spot and these Blues Virtuosos were just so damn good that photography had to wait. Guys in their 50's playing like it was their last opportunity before Global Nuclear Holocaust.

So I have to fail you; here's a leftover photo from last night:

Rock in Alppila

Night 100 contest!

100th Night is one week away so I thought I'd ask people what would you like me to shoot for Night 100?
You can either comment here or Facebook page or email me to tuhonen(at)

I'll pick my favourite(s) and buy the lucky winner a coffee when in Helsinki :D

Night 93

This building in the corner of Aleksis Kiven katu and Kotkankatu is covered
in plastic during renovation. I like it how  they've also put lights in there, it
looks fascinatingly sci-fi by night.

Night 92

Proverbs 18:24 (Sananlaskut 18:24) has many
different translations, all of them wise words.
I tattooed this on my wrist tonight.
Dearest greetings to my best friend.

Night 91

Full moon in Malminkartano

Night 90

A house shot over Brahe sports field.
I know it's a bit lame but I wasn't feeling very well
so it'll have to do. I almost forgot to post it, too.

Night 89

Self portrait, once again.
This is single picture, taken with 20 sec shutter
time and unedited except for some cropping
(there are shelves and other stuff on both sides).

Night 85

I had so much fun doing last night's double self portrait so I decided
to do another one. This time a bit more aggressive.

Night 84

Something a bit different. I've been very interested in
portrait photography, but since there aren't anybody else
to shoot, I thought I'd shoot myself, twice.

Obviously, this required some photoshopping,
which I haven't used in any of previous night photos.
I tried not to do anything that wasn't necessary to
combine two shots, so lighting, brightness and contrast
are all natural, straight from camera.

Night 83

I was so tired last night I couldn't download photos, I just fell in bed. 
Which was good, since I haven't got as good 8-hour sleep as this since, well, long time.

Here's your Night 83 photo, though:

Some tower-like machine in Linnanmäki amusement park.
Photo taken from Wallininkatu.
