My photographer/husband, professor M, and I usually plan our photoshoots for Saturday afternoons / evenings. This means that we we spend 15-20 minutes taking photos before we go and have dinner somewhere.
That was the plan for this photoshoot (a week ago), too. However, we were absolutely starving by the time we got to the restaurant and decided to have dinner first.
Summer restaurants, like the yacht club we had chosen as the location of our little photoshoot, are only open during the summer season and only accessible by a shuttle boat. In this case, the boat trip took just a couple of minutes…
Anyway… after a wonderful dinner (read: a few hours and several glasses of wine), we realised that it was 9.30 pm and the sun would be setting soon… So, we rushed out and took a few photos.
It was a warm evening after a warm day. Still, after ‘dark’ (= after sunset, as it doesn’t really get dark here at the moment), it might get a bit cooler. And you know I like my ponchos… But, seriously, the poncho is a good alternative to a cardigan: it’s loose fitting and goes with anything. Not to mention it makes for some very dramatic photos…
Sunset over the city skyline is so beautiful, isn’t it?
And when we got back to the mainland (after the short boat trip), we tried some night photography. Full moon over Suomenlinna (= a district of Helsinki situated on a cluster of islands) was just too beautiful to ignore.
