A newly rehabilitated industrial district, the Rottermann Quarter is a great example of how industrial districts can be preserved and how new architecture can be integrated with them. This is a shot of one of the new apartment buildings, whose tall arches mirror the long spire of Oleviste Kirik.

This view of Vanalinn (Old Town) is taken from one of the many look outs over one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world. You can see Oleviste Kirik (St. Olaf's Church) believed to be built in the 12th century and for some time was the tallest buildings in the world. Its amazing that when approaching the city on a ferry from Helsinki, that this church is just as tall (if not taller!) than the new buildings in the "city"
When my sister, cousin and I were in Copenhagen the other summer we took a quick train ride over to Mälmo and found this wonderful garden. I didn't notice it until now, but the towers in the background resemble the Turning Torso building bu Santiago Calatrava in Mälmo.

I really liked how this grouping worked together. In this calendar I alternated color and black and white photos. All black and white photos were taken using black and white film and the color ones are a mix of film and digital formats.

It took my godmother and I quite awhile to find this cafe in New York. It had been recommended it a magazine but is obscurely located below street level--- the search was worth it though, the espresso was fabulous, now if only I remembered the name of the place!
I created four calendars for 2011 with photos that I have taken over the last couples years. Two desk calendars and two wall calendars. I thought I would post some information on the images I used each month on the blog-- I was selling the calendars for $24 a piece (with $1 from each calendar going to the Lupus Foundation of America) if anyone still wants one, let me know! Enjoy---
