Posted for 100 Days of Summer 2014 (Facebook Group): 64 ~ Portrait.  And…dedicated to all the Finnish photographers in the “100 Days” group who I now call friends. These are admirable traits that are listed on Squidoo as typical for Finns…and traits I’ve come to recognize. I’m not sure all of this is conveyed in the image — but I loved the title of the photograph so much I knew right away I wanted to use it for my poem.
