vertical landscapes.

I have a goal for 2013: no matter what happens I want to spend at least one day of every week taking photographs - since it always makes me feel so good to do so. I won't have the possibility to visit a new place each week - but I will try my best to capture things in a different way each time I return to the same place. last sunday we revisited Viikki and I decided to shoot vertical landscapes.
vertical landscapes in Viikki:
Mamiya RB 67 - Fuji Pro 160 NS.
I don't know why I had never done it before: vertical shots with the 6x4.5 back of my Mamiya are really pleasant. I have already reserved next saturday to go somewhere special and keep up with my 2013 goal: yesterday was my birthday and I have received a package of Fuji FP-100C which is going to be wonderfully useful.

  6. I'm trying to do something similar! Work on it as often as I can, even if it's with my phone...

    SO magical! birch trees and the contrast of the snow with those yellows...

    Happy Birthday!!
