by the sea I.

there are places in Helsinki where I have been many times and yet I still find beautiful: Suomenlinna is one of them. that Saturday Jacopo and I decided to take advantage of the good weather to have a walk by the sea. it was extremely windy and we found a spot on the rocky shore where to admire the waves crashing in: what an impressive sight it was!
by the sea - part I:
Nikomat EL - Kodak 200
for a moment there I thought we were standing by the ocean: the Baltic Sea is rarely so wavy. the harmonic motion and sound of the waves made me feel like taking a video with my mobile phone - I hardly ever shoot videos: you can watch it on my Instagram if you like.

  3. When I am on the sea I find it terrifying but the sound of crashing waves is so calming!

    1. I think it's normal to be scared of something so big and powerful... the sea is fascinating because of that as well!

    1. Thank you, Nit! I'd like to use some different films to be honest, but I still have many of the Kodak ones my dad gave me for Christmas.
