I was in Tallinn on Independence Day this year and contributed to the project. However, it was only today that I remembered to follow this up and view the entries online. I was pleased to discover that 7617 photographs were submitted and I was impressed by the variety these images represented - everything from family snapshots, the great outdoors, cute kids, and even people in hospital. They really capture the essence of contemporary Estonian life. Some people were really creative with their photos whilst others simply shared a candid moment. All are wonderful in their own way. I love seeing the colours of the national flag, the smiling faces and above all, the national pride.
You can view the photos online at the Eesti Minut website http://www.eestiminut.ee. All photos are stored in the Estonian National Museum and are now part of history for future generatons. The project will be repeated again in 2018 when Estonia turns 100.
(N.B. The above photos are entries from the Eesti Minut project. If you are the author of any one of these photos and object to it being on my blog, please contact me via Facebook and I will promply remove it. I mean no offence, I simply admire your work.)
