LIKE CHALK AND SPRING























A few snippets from our excursion last weekend

to a salvage yard in Billnäs 

and the idyllic village of Fiskars,

about an hour's drive west of Helsinki. 

Realising how long it had been 

since the last time we'd all bundled up in the car

and headed somewhere for the day

just for the fun of it. 

Despite the chalky hues in this post,




- enough so that it called for an emergency stop

at the garden centre on the way home.








Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Thanks dear nines
      - plenty of other influences during our little,
      but the lens seemed to be subconsciously drawn
      towards the chalks :)

  2. Kaunista niin pehmeitä sävyjä! Tuollaiset reissut on aina kivoja.

    Hyvää viikonloppua sinulle Rebecca!

    1. Tuollaiset pikkuretket on kyllä piristysruiskeita.
      Porvoo ja Fiskars meillä aika vakkarit,
      vaan vähän voisi kyllä vielä lisätä muitakin paikkoja
      vakkariarsenaaliin :)

    1. Talk about early-century industrial feel...
      The salvage yard had relocated to that building
      since our last visit,
      the light against the rugged backdrop
      was just fantastic.
      Always a pleasure to see you here michele, x

    1. Thanks dear Dore
      - have to say I love chalk whites,
      the soft texture, which is far from sterile...
