Step Into Autumn



Well, these photographs are very special to me. For several reasons. Firstly, this girl. Alyona is the only person who I feel absolutely comfortable around and I always appreciate her company. Secondly, these photos remind me of how warm that beautiful evening was. There was still a hint of summer in the air. Thirdly and most importantly, these pictures were taken with my new Rolleiflex camera. It was my first medium format experience and I,m so happy with the outcome! The camera is about 60 years old but works perfectly, I can,t wait to take more portraits with it.






Have a nice day everyone!

Gotland



So, in the end of July I traveled to Gotland with my dad. What is Gotland? It is a swedish island, and quite a fascinating one. Driving through the island makes you feel confused all the time because your mind keeps failing to understand how the elements of the south can be mixed into a northern lanscape so effortlessly.
Gotland is everything. It has a most impressive coastline: amazing sea stacks, sandy beaches, rich bird life... This island even has it,s own savannah. Yep, a northern savannah.
Being the one who explores the world through the lens of a camera I secretly hoped for a cloudy weather. Imagine it: dramatic cliffs and a gloomy sky in the background. Perfection. But this never happened. When we arrived the sun was scorching from above.

Anyway, nothing could spoil the experience. It was quite a short trip but I enjoyed every minute of it. It was a great escape from reality and Gotland is the right place for an off the beaten path vacation.






















































Wishing everyone a nice day!
