Project Fifty-Sixty – Week 4
I think this project has made me more aware of the weather and changes in nature than I have been before. Autumn is usually just something that goes by. But when you have to contemplate every day if you can go out and photograph or is it raining cats and dogs, it makes you observe things more closely.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the first part here.
Day 22 – Sunday
For some reason I was really tired the whole day. I actually thought that I was going to catch a cold, but luckily that didn’t happen. This unfortunately meant that all I could muster to photograph was some pasta ingredients.
Day 23 – Monday
The weather cleared just in time for sunset and the sky was very pretty. I grabbed my camera and walked around the Martin’s Church, which is basically in my back yard.
Day 24 – Tuesday
I’ve been driving past this place in Hirvensalo occasionally in October. This Tuesday I decided that the autumn colors wouldn’t get much better than this. So out came the camera even though the weather wasn’t exactly pretty.
Day 25 – Wednesday
I had to resort to the basics of autumn photography here, since I was really busy.
Day 26 – Thursday
Being awake before sunrise has been a really rare occasion for me, let alone photographing something in the morning light. This is now possible due to my new sleep cycle, which has been surprisingly kind to me.
Day 27 – Friday
Friday brought finally some nice weather, so we headed out to the old, abandoned freight station. This is actually a place in my own home town where I hadn’t been before.
Day 28 – Saturday
Much to our surprise the weather was nice on Saturday as well. And since we just like to photograph forsaken places, we went with a sure thing. An abandoned cattle shed / sauna in Ruissalo. The first building is a cellar and it’s in a different place, but I thought it was still worth photographing.
I’ll try to churn out the next installment a bit faster than this…
