the beginning of autumn I.

since the start of autumn I have been taking a few film rolls: I would like to share some photographs from those in my upcoming posts. autumn really deserves to be photographed with its soft light and brightly coloured leaves. this year the beginning of autumn in Helsinki has been quite warm - an Indian summer - and extremely colourful: the most colourful autumn I have ever seen here.
the beginning of autumn I:
Nikon FM - Fuji Pro 400H
I took these photographs one of the last days of September on a Saturday morning walk in Vanhakaupunkilahti. there were still some green leaves at that time but the chilly air was a clear sign that autumn had finally begun - I remember wearing my woolen hat that day.

  6. This is exactly how autumn should be. Makes me want to grab my car and go spend a few days at my grandmothers village, walking among pine trees and feeling the crisp air on my skin.

    1. Well, as much as I like woolen hats, I would still rather not be wearing them for as long as I have to here in Finland...
