winter walk with my diana mini #2.

on saturday morning it was even colder than the day before - Jacopo and I were planning to go to Suomenlinna but when we reached the ferry we changed our mind because of the strong wind blowing from the sea. we decided instead to go to Vanha Katajanokka: a beautiful old area of the city where we don't go that often.
winter walk with my Diana Mini:

Fuji Superia 1600.
Vanha Katajanokka has some of the most grand buildings in Helsinki and they all looked like castles in the snow - my Diana Mini captured some of those really beautifully in my opinion. from Vanha Katajanokka we then walked to the harbour of Katajanokka to make our way back home: I have finished the film roll taking photographs of ships and the frozen sea.
I will share the photographs from that last bit of our walk soon!

  3. I love those tram lines! the straight lines and severity of those buildings are quite amazing with the dreamy quality of the colors and the grain... They are amazing!

    1. thank you so much! :-) I was also fascinated by the tram lines! :-) the pastel colours of the buildings are pretty amazing in the winter time, because they make such a lovely contrast with the snow!

  5. The old side of Katajanokka is the most underrated place in the whole Helsinki: it is populated by beautiful buildings, and has a really nice story. We should definitely go there more often during the summer specially... and there are some nice cafeterias there!
