This morning our e-class kicked off and so for the next few hours, passwords and logins are being sent and we’re watching our students join in – it’s exciting! I always meet the coolest people… For instance, I met a nice photographer from Finland in the forum a few moments ago and her work really spoke to me. Her name is Kreetta Jarvenpaa and I encourage you to check out her photography portfolio. Here are only a few of my favorites below – her site is loaded with more.

I tip my hat to this lady because her work has such a sensitive quality to it. In some photos where she shows so little, she still manages to tell so much. Like the feather or the scene around the table. She is a true storyteller, don’t you think?

    Her work is wonderful – I was also very happy to discover her blog and portfolio in the course. And how supportive of you that you’re featuring her here. Must be a nice surprise to expect your first day at the byw course and then end up being featured on decor8 all of a sudden!

    I love the first photo, the balance of reflection and table intimacy makes me feel like I can sneak a peek into their little dinner party without intruding. Marvellous!

    I would live in many of those photos, and imagine the conversations happening within them. Rich.
