Nikomat EL - Kodak BW400CNabove are the first two of a series of six photographs I have printed in my darkroom among those I took in Uunisaari last week. the fog was so thick I could not see very far from where I stood but the shapes of the ice on the sea became an interesting subject to photograph: the ground was moon-like. that bench was left alone on the ice and looked lonely and very beautiful.

the baltic sea in winter I.
last week I have found myself walking with a friend to a place where I had not been in a very long time. Uunisaari is a little island in the southern part of Helsinki - not that far from Kaivopuisto. while during the summer the only way to reach it is a ferry - in the wintertime a footbridge connects it to the mainland and it becomes a popular place for walks on sunny days. in my opinion the island can be very fascinating on foggy days too and that is why I decided to go back there with my camera on the foggiest day ever. between the rolls that my dad gave me I found a Kodak BW400CN and decided to use it: there are no colours these days but shapes and textures.
