Witch's broom / mistletoe[edit]

Hi Estormiz- I saw Image:Witch_Broom_Oulu_2006_11_06.JPG and I think it looks much more like mistletoe. Do you agree that it might be that instead of witch's broom? --Eric my en.wp talk page 15:18, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Mistletoe is not native for Northern Finland (maybe not for all of Finland). But I am no botanist so I cannot be so sure of what it is. --Estormiz (talk) 18:18, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm no expert on either, but I'm sure that is not witch's broom in the picture. I've seen a lot of mistletoe, and it looks exactly like mistletoe. I found one website that talks about mistletoe growing in city parks outside its natural range. Maybe that's what's happening in Oulu? --Eric my en.wp talk page 03:04, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Finnish wikipedia says that "verifiably there is one mistletoe growing in a garden in Parainen in Finland". The species of mistletoe in Parainen is Viscum album or in Finnish misteli. Parainen is in the south western part of Finland. Oulu is about 600 km up north from Parainen and only about 200 km from Arctic circle. So definitely it is not mistletoe. Witch's broom, especially Taphrina betulina, (btw in Finnish it is called tuulenpesä i.e. "Wind's nest") however is very common in Finland. --Estormiz (talk) 14:28, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, I've learned something new. Those growths in the tree in Oulu just didn't look to me to be part of the tree--they seemed at first to be hanging. But I found another picture of a birch here with many growths, just like yours. I didn't realize there could be so many in one tree! Thanks for the info. I hope your days aren't too short up there now! --Eric my en.wp talk page 16:00, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
We are approaching the polar night. Of course we never get there, but we get really close. I'm sure you can imagine the amount of Seasonal affective disorders going around here ;) --Estormiz (talk) 08:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

And I am no expert in historical sailing ships, so it is possible that I make a mistake by this suggestion. Please help. --Stunteltje (talk) 19:26, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Can't help. I am not expert on ships either. Plus I might make a mistake just because I am not native english speaker. --Estormiz (talk) 14:45, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

The renovated industrial building in Toppila[edit]

Thanks for uploading this: File:Toppila Former Pulpmill.jpg

Looks exciting. =) Not being an Oulu native, I've only seen the building in its current, renovated condition. Quite a change.

Got any other old photos from that same area? Uploading some photos taken from the harbour of Toppila when it actually still had some activity going on would also be great. --Methem (talk) 16:20, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

At the time (before digicameras) when all of the photographs had to be printed, I did not take many landscape pictures - at least not many without family or friends on the foreground :) Toppila harbour has not been in full use for so long that I have to say that I do not remember it as a real busy harbour. I've only got a faint memory of some ships in that harbour. Sorry. I will look through my old photo prints when I have more time, I might still have some pictures from Toppila and other places in 1980's or 1990's. -Estormiz (talk) 16:47, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Ok. And yep, I guess it would require going like 30 years (or more?) back in time to see the harbour real busy.
I have seen some of the old photos taken by the late photographer Uuno Laukka, and they are pretty interesting (such as this one). I should take time to browse all of his Oulu photos in his online collection some day... --Methem (talk) 17:41, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

We wanted to let you know that we've used one of your pictures in a project of ours: http://litpics.tumblr.com/post/14374429662/lit-critical-miscellanies-vol-3-of-3-by-john

We created a computer program to generate random pairings of sentences from public domain texts and public domain / creative commons images. Some of the pictures we've selected come from the Wikipedia Commons. All the pictures we select ourselves, but the pairings and the text are random. Of these pairings that are generated, we only post the most interesting combinations.

We welcome any feedback about our site.

Thanks for sharing your pictures,
