Izaya is nahuatl, one of the original languages of Central America, and means “open your eyes”.
Originally I created this blog namely to give glimpses of an eye of Central America, a region where I lived for many years, with texts and pictures.
Now my basis is my native Finland, or, more in specific, the island of Åland, where I have family-roots.
But my mission is still the same: To give a picture of where I live – or work or travel – with texts and photos.
I am a freelance journalist/content-writer with a passion for pictures, photo-journalism being my favourite genre.
Most of the pictures in this blog were taken with quite rudimentary equipment. Now I have upgraded but I still use the same mirrorless technology, with all its advantages and disadvantages.
My aim is to post inspiring photos and interesting texts in the near future!
