Why Mittened Hands?

The expression was found in the book “A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian” written by Marina Lewycka. As a Norwegian I’m used to long, snowy and cold winters, and mittens are without a doubt a necessity. I had never heard this expression in english before and I have carried it with me since I first read it back in 2009. I thought that the expression was an excellent band name, but since I never managed to form a band I had to use it somewhere else. As some of you know it’s quite hard to do things properly wearing mittens….

    This past winter I discovered that gloves with “texting dots” for touch-screens can work quite well when operating a camera.

  15. Hello Mitten Hands..
    Just want to say thank you for visiting my WP blog recently.
    For some reason, it’s been a bit of a challenge to get into writing a recent blog post.
    I’ve been more visually minded these days than writing out thoughts about a particular experience.
    I should have something to post by March or sooner.

  16. Excellent photography and a really stunning blog. I just wanted
    to thank you kindly for visiting and liking my own.
    I shall be returning soon to review more.

  21. Hello Petter,
    I like your art of photography very much. The processing of the gray tones convinces me and I find them very sensitive. And a great name for your site. Outstanding.
