Once the art of picturing the dark was taught. This year we will learn how to capture life.
On Tuesday 10 days remained to the teadus.ee Summer School start. 99 persons are firmly committed as participants, speakers and organisers. Feels like a shop price tag.
The programme has had a nice addition – besides Tiit Hunt nature photographer Heiko Kruusi will be there. He will lead the Saturday and Sunday morning photography rambles „Early morning life“.
Heiko Kruusi comments the project:: „Various forms of life are everywhere around us, but do we always notice them? We will try to look for early morning life in Käsmu and nearby. Perhaps together we will succeed in capturing a small fragment of it for ourselves or for the pleasure of others. Bring along an open mind and equipment for documenting life (camera, mobile, similar).“
If anyone has registered and wants to participate but has not paid yet, it is still possible, as an exception, until Friday. If you have not registered but would like to take part please contact email@example.com Eleri Inno 51 549 66 or Tiit Kändler 56 483 481.
A reminder too that those who wish can go by Looduse Omnibus from Tallinn, and back again.
