day trip to porvoo part 2.

the best thing about our trip to Porvoo last wednesday was that the old town was almost completely empty - being a regular winter working day there were no local people around and very little tourists. Myriam and I were lucky enough to be able to take our photographs with almost no disturbance at all - even the temperature was rather fine that day being about 0°C.
more photographs from Porvoo:

Hasselblad 500 C/M - Fuji Pro 400H.
that beautiful afternoon ended with a delicious slice of pie and a warm cup of tea before heading back home to Helsinki. I really wish I could spend at least one afternoon a week as lovely as the one we spent in Porvoo - I am also very happy with how my photographs have turned out!

    1. aren't they? the old town of Porvoo has many colourful wooden houses, so I thought that a Fuji Pro would have emphasize them nicely - and so it did!

    1. thank you, dear My! ♥ I think the last one is my personal favourite, even though the 3rd one required some more effort - do you remember the way we were sinking deeply down into the fresh snow? ;-)
