I went to WordPress course in order to make websites, but soon I found that blogging was interesting and here I am…

By profession I’m a graphic designer / an illustrator (now freelance and aged), who wants to photograph, paint and walk in nature. To my family includes a husband, a dog and a cat. I’m not a mother, but however a grandmother 🙂

Studied also botany, genetics and zoology. The copyrights of the photos on this site are mine. My other website is https://torikassi.wordpress.com/,  where I have scanned photos from a Nepal studying trip many years ago.

And my new site (a kind of sketch book) includes drawings and naïve style paintings from different yearscityenkeli.wordpress.com (Warning: Can contain images of cats and unfinished material).

Thank You for visiting and liking this website! THANK YOU for following, too!

My English is not as well as Finnish, sorry… fortunately I post almost only photos!


Olen valokuvausta harrastava graafinen suunnittelija / kuvittaja (nyt freelancer). Kuvat ovat ottamiani ja copyrightit myös, ellei toisin mainita. Innostuin bloggaamaan WordPress-kurssilla, vaikka menin sinne opettelemaan lähinnä nettisivujen tekoa.

Toinen blogisivuni löytyy osoitteesta http://torikassi.wordpress.com/, jossa on Nepal-kuvia vuosikymmenten takaa. Ja uusi sivustoni (eräänlainen luonnosvihko tai pöytälaatikko) sisältää piirroksiani ja naivistisen tyylin maalauksiani eri vuosilta: cityenkeli.wordpress.com (Varoitus: Voi sisältää kissojen kuvia ja keskeneräistä aineistoa).

Kiitos vierailusta sivuillani! Ja KIITOS kaikille WP-seuraajilleni!

  1. Kiva, että innostuit bloggaamaan. Minä olen harrastanut bloggausta vuodesta 2008.

  2. I’m sure we have some things in common – the love of art & nature, botany, Nepal (I haven’t been there but always wanted to visit that part of the world). Very nice photographs I’m seeing!


    1. Thank you so much for your valuation! I am so new a blogger and not so good in English that it takes time to find out what it means…


  3. Thanks for liking my post on Cee´s fun photo challenge. I visited your blog and liked it instantly. Having som problems with translation but some translates and it seems interesting. You write about environment?


  4. Hello!
    Thank you for following my blog. I know how many interesting blogs are out there and feel honored that you picked mine to follow. I hope my stories entertain and inform and my photos bring you joy and wonderment.
    I travel mostly local but try to always find interesting places. I have lived in several different places and dig through my archives of photos to bring glimpses into places I have been. Sometimes I post a recipe because food tells a lot about culture.
    I am not a professional photographer, so my photos are sometimes a little fuzzy and there are telephone poles and wires and other things along with what I was photographing. The older photos are 35mm, the newer are point and shoot digital and a few are Samsung Smartphone.
    I am new to blogging so if you have any advice or critique please drop me a comment.
    Thank you again for following and to quote Mark Twain: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

    I agree absolutely with Sophie: it is a pleasure to look at your photography – and also at your personal artwork !
    Pike, my friend, you are possessed of enormous talent; and did you not share it here with us, our world would be a lesser place.
