oulun siirtolapuutarha.

my obsession for siirtolapuutarhat is growing stronger. since I remembered spotting one in Oulu a few summers ago - last weekend I decided to finally visit it properly as we were in town staying at Jacopo's grandparents' place. after the disappointing results of the 1980's expired slide film I took at the siirtolapuutarha in Herttoniemi - I was then looking forward to take some decent photos at Oulun Siirtolapuutarha instead.
Nikon FM - Fuji Superia 1600:

✻ from the last frames of the same film roll I took to Koitelinkoski.
sure enough the photographs turned out good - my Nikon FM never fails and the Fuji Superia 1600 is a great film roll. I have found Oulun Siirtolapuutarha to be less appealing than the one in Herttoniemi though: most of the houses were too big or too new and the vegetation seem to be scarce and tidier - overall I didn't get the same fascinating feeling of decadence of Herttoniemi's. still a few houses were well worth a photograph and a siirtolapuutarha is always worth a visit - don't you think?
