We've had an overwhelming amount of new visitors lately, thank you so much! Each visit and comment is truly appeciated.

Some of you have asked about link exchange. Unfortunately we have to deny your requests as we prefer to keep Happy Snappy purely for this photo project. But we promise to do our very best and pay back every visit at some point!

Have a happy August!

Is it really August already? Where did July go? LOL Love the pictures today! That yellow car is so cute! :0)

Greetings to you from Houston,Texas! These photos make me want to pack a bag immediately and head abroad.

Thank you for your lovely work.

This is a novel idea for a blog! Kudos to you. Thank you for posting these pictures. I shall follow you. I'm enjoying what I see. :)

Toni Tralala said...

Since you don't have a "follow" button and I sincerely am fascinated by this blog, I bookmarked it. hihi. Please do upload more! :)

Jaana and Kia said...

Toni Tralala, there should be a "follow" button now. ;)

Toni Tralala said...

Viola! It's done. :) Okay, I shall stalk your page as soon as I see an update or during rainy days. lol.

Thanks Jaana and Kia!

Conglaturations!

Great idea.

You got a new follower.

Dhila Backstrom said...

your project has inspired me to start my own... now if I could only find a victim preferably on the other side of the globe... Keep at it..

Toni Tralala said...

What if we apply Jaana and Kia's style in our personal blogs and acknowledge that it was inspired by theirs? Dedicate an entry as appreciation for the novel idea.

Call it a "Happy Snappy Moment" or something. :)

Just a thought.

Jules said...

wow...your picts (esp the newest one with bulidings) are GREAT =)

Hello Friends! Love your blog! Your two cities are an intriguing contrast with each other, very symbolic of two friends in separate parts of the world. I like how together they represent possibilities of where people can work and play, and the individual rhythm of daily life each represents.

The waterway city is visually symbolic of the past and future. For instance, the sunless calm blue sky, coupled with a gray, almost choppy river, makes the viewer wonder: Is there a storm brewing? Did the boats leave? Take a look at how the coloring of the buildings changes from the ground going up: Is this an illusion of an ancient flood?

The street side city just makes me want to visit! How charming the road is with pavement and bricks, the placement of the yellow car just screams “road trip”! I also like how the road gently curves and peaks on a hilltop. Really invites the viewer to know more about the location.

I hope this is the type of input you want to hear:)) Pat - South Georgia USA

This is just very beautiful, I would love to visit places like these. Your photographic work is astonishing.

Karen said...

@Cherie, I, too, found this by clicking on next blog. I just created mine. If I go backward, I should find yours. This is beautiful photography. I will follow. Dhila, what side of the globe are you on?

pineapple said...

Good idea for a blog! Lovely city shots.

Dhila Backstrom said...

Jaana and Kia said...

@~*Pat*~: We really appreciate you taking time to write down your thoughts on these two photos. Thank you and keep them coming! ;)

@Iam Hoarder: Jaana's photo is of Helsinki (Finland) and Kia's is of Inverness (Scotland), two cities we recently visited.

@Everyone else: Thank you for your comments, we will try to visit you all very soon!

Just stumbled across your blog by accident--what a fabulous idea! Love the way it lets you stay connected while enjoying the differences in your perspectives and situations. Beautiful photos!

Julien said...

Love the European pics. The one on the left looks like Sweden possibly or Norway. The left looks Eastern bloc. Would have loved to have been either place.

Rachelle14 said...

Just ran across your blog and LOVE it. Had to follow. And I love the idea. My sis-in-law and I are both photographers and love working together, but sadly, she's going to be moving very soon. We're thinkig about doing something sorta like this to keep up on each other's photography. Love it!

this is such a great idea! I love the blog girls!!! Cant wait for the next theme! Its great to see how syncipated you are being so far apart.

cet said...

I love the concept of your blog. I thought of Dicken's, A Tale of Two Cities. If I was encountering the site for the first time, I would have thought the photos were two different views of the same city.

Jaana and Kia said...

@Julien: Jaana's photo on is of Helsinki (Finland) and Kia's is of Inverness (Scotland).

yummy mummy said...

What a neat idea !!! to keep 2 friends connected. Do you ever discuss the photos AFTER?? (you said you dont do beforehand !.

Inspired me to think of something special to do with my special friends !

Love the little yellow car - so fun!!

Jaana and Kia said...

@yummy yummy: We never discuss about a theme vs. photos beforehand, so each other's point of view for the theme is always as big of a surprise to us as it is to you. Afterwards we do chat about where and when the photos were taken, and often we have noticed that "great minds think alike". :) This has been a very interesting project so far, and we're looking forward to seeing what you and your friends come up with!
