summer polaroids.

I had been posting about our trip to Iceland for the whole of July: now August is here and more than a month has passed since we got back to Helsinki. while here on Passer Domesticus I was sharing some photographs and memories of our icelandic journey - which I still hold close to my heart and I still regard as the best part of the summer - many more things have happened both in Finland and abroad. July had been a busy month: while the weather had been generally pleasant in Helsinki and I had been trying to make the most of it - I had also spent a long weekend in Bavaria, Germany to support Jacopo during one of his triathlon competitions. despite my indifference towards sport in general our staying in Germany turned out to be really nice: not only I had the possibility to visit some very romantic little towns but I have also made some new friends. I should start to accompany Jacopo more often during his trips! back in Helsinki my sister had come to visit us and it had been lovely to have her around again - she hadn't been here since last summer and I was really missing her!
♥ a couple of summer polaroids:
Polaroid Image System - PZ 680 Color Protection
if summer is the season for polaroids I haven't really been taking enough of them this year - yet the few ones we took are worth sharing in my opinion. when Emi visits Helsinki we always take some polaroids and this time around we took two with Jacopo's Image System camera. Jacopo took the first one with me and my sister at the botanic garden in Kaisaniemi: now I have placed it in front of my desk so that I can look at it every now and then when I miss Emi the most. she took the obligatory romantic picture of Jacopo and I on a very sunny afternoon in Töölönlahti - that day had been truly beautiful: we even spent sometime at Linnanmäki amusement park!
P.S. in July I had also been shooting a couple of film rolls with my dear Nikon and Hasselblad: I will soon share some photographs from those and a few more memories.

    1. Thank you, Amanda! I would like to shoot more too, but, since they are so expensive, I try to save them for special occasions. I guess Emi's visit was one of those!

    1. Thank you! I didn't know you had a sister, Silvia. Is she also into traveling and good food as much as you? I wish my sister could live closer. Hopefully some day we will live again in the same city!

  5. sounds like you've been having a great time :-) it must be so good to see your sister after all that time! the both of you look lovely in your polaroid.
    i love your summer look in the second! your straw hat is really cute as well.
    and how did jacopo's triathlon competition go?
    i can never have my polaroids color look this good... it must have something to do with this color protection system?
    hugs!
