photographs from oulu II.

I have finally got my analogue photographs from Oulu back from the lab: unfortunately some of them turned out too dark and grainy - Northern Ostrobothnia is not exactly the most luminous place in December - but there are still several shots I would like to share during the next couple of weeks. I hope you will like them - though sadly I had to use the infamous Fuji Superia X-tra 800.

Nikon FM - Fuji Superia X-tra 800
one of the places I wanted to visit the most was Koitelinkoski - which I had never seen covered in snow: I ended up taking many photographs there as it was even more impressive than I was expecting it to be. Jacopo and I spent a couple of hours wandering around until our feet and noses froze off.

P.S. I am flying to Italy tomorrow morning to spend Christmas time with my family: I will keep updating Passer Domesticus from over there. I wish you all a lovely weekend! ♥

  6. Haha, the infamous Fuji Superia X-tra 800! Certainly not the biggest fan of 800 speed film but these are lovely nonetheless. Take lots of photographs in Italy with your family and have a wonderful holiday ♥♥♥

    1. Thank you, Katie! I wish I could use 100 and 200 iso rolls more, but winter in Finland is so dark... I might use some here in Italy though!

    1. Sara, I guess I would not use it either, if I'd live in sunny Portugal! I like grain, but these days I feel like I'd love to shoot with 100 iso films so much instead. Hopefully I'll be shooting some here in Italy!
