the end of a film roll.

two weeks ago my friend Anne was on autumn break and could spend a few days in Helsinki: being able to see her longer than a couple of hours on a Sunday was lovely! we even got to go to the cinema together to watch a truly nice black and white film about friendship: Frances Ha by Noah Baumbach - if you have not yet seen it I really recommend it. one afternoon we went for a walk in Vanhakaupunkilahti to admire the last colourful signs of autumn. I took my Nikon FM along with a film roll that had just a few remaining shots - among those there are two I would like to share here.
the end of a film roll:
Nikon FM - Fuji Pro 400H
I will never get tired of capturing that boardwalk: to me it looks different every time. I recall visiting Vanhakaupunkilahti at the beginning of autumn and taking a similar photograph - do you remember it? this time though there were two ducks instead of just one.

I am happy to let you know that I have been interviewed for a truly inspiring online photography magazine: Top Photography Films. the interview has been divided into two beautifully edited articles: Featured Photographers | Polly Balitro and Living At The Edge Of The World - check them out if you please and let me know what you think.
Have a lovely weekend! ♥

    1. Thank you, Inês!
      I'm sorry though but I'm afraid you won't be able to buy the book anymore - the point of the Indiegogo campaign was to raise enough money to print a limited amount of copies, which you were supposed to pre-order through the campaign.

    2. Oh Polly I'm such an idiot.I don't know how I got the idea that you would print more besides the pre-ordered ones... I was so relaxed thinking that I couldn't afford it now but would do it later. Well, despite all of this, I'm thrilled that you raised what you wanted and more! :)

    3. Don't worry, Inês! Perhaps you'll get the next book? This experience has been so positive, I'm sure we won't stop here! ;-)

  18. Beautiful pictures! I can understand why you never get tired of this boardwalk - it has its own magic... and I think every photographer has such a place in his/her heart.

    And congrats to your feature! Very well deserved! Keep up the great work, Polly!
