A difficult morning having awoken feeling very nauseous, so a very late start for me with just a gentle stroll around the local lanes. I'd taken a few so so rubbish shots when thankfully a Red Admiral butterfly landed to bask in the sun. I was able to get the camera closer than in this shot but elected to use f/4 which was probably a little too greedy and the depth of field didn't really cover the whole insect. There was little post processing to do although I did crop the image slightly maintaining the 4:3 ratio in order to move the insect somewhat off centre in the image, something I should really have done in camera.

Church of St. Paul - This red tile church has nominated some times the most beautiful church in Helsinki, it’s in the eye of beholder. Build 1930 and renovated 2003-2004 to original form. It’s architecture has something which reminds churches in Italy, and perhaps something which reflects old monasteries, closed inner court, wings for accommodation and two big reception halls.

So, got in at 1am on Saturday morning after working a double shift. Doorbell goes at 6:50am on Saturday morning and someone drops this off....

Note the work shoes on the bottom step - I then went back into the office and spent all day Saturday with a couple of my developers helping a client test their newly upgraded system and ironing out bugs.
So, today is going to be a day of allen keys, screwdrivers and trying to un-flatpack some furniture...
