The Kodak E200 slide film I used expired in 2007 so I got it for 2€ a roll. As it has been refrigerated I don't complain at all (in fact, I'm happy I got several…

Colour separation sunset
Here's a sunset from June 2008 (three black and white exposures combined into a colour image). Not as accurate or successful as one taken in sunlight at noon, but perhaps interesting still.

Taken on the beach on the westmost peninsula of the island Ruissalo just outside Turku. My thanks goes to Roomeri who showed me this part of the island.


Handheld at f/8-ish, Rodinal 1+25 for 7.5 minutes in ~20°C (not that good result).

Shot on December 6, 2008 (the independence day of Finland). Some trivia: the rifle on the right…

Field kitchen

Field kitchen
and field chefs?


first attempt at a 'real' stand development (agitation only during the first 30 seconds, then left undisturbed for almost two hours in this case) and a big disappointment. I'm not certain what I did wrong, but the roll I shot during the…

Roundpole fence, gravel road and farm structure
Shot near the Halinen district of Turku. The building is used for drying fodder.

The first and last roll of APX 400 in 120 format I'll probably ever will handle (re-branded it exists as Rollei retro and such). Would have expired 07/2008, got it for free…
