Maija Luutonen

This photo by Maija Luttonen made me laugh. Maija is living and working in Helsinki and has a unique portfolio in that there is as much drawing as there is photography (I haven’t come across this combination too often). I particularlly like this little series of photos, Please let’s pretend.

Blogging 101

This weekend my friend Terri (The Conveyor Belt) and I were asked to speak on the topic of blogging, at the University of British Columbia!
