Austerity measures and penny-pinching attitudes trickle down into the everyday echelons of our society. This is what our local kindergarten could afford when they established their facilities :)

The traditional Saami lavvo might appear frugal yet due to the stove inside it keeps the kids warm during the cold winter. The young ones have to brace themselves for their native Nordic climate. Better start training early ....

Taken with the Df and my new Laowa 100mm f/2.8 lens, which is a surprising and pleasant novelty in optical terms.

Seeing Erik and Jacov's photos, I feel I'm missing out a bit
:(

Is there any chance we could combine some of Michael Erlewine's close up superlatives with Jacov's horticultural skills?

Harvest moon.

It is extremely challenging to shoot the full moon with its features retained along with the building that was only darkly lit.
