Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in Kruunuvuori, an area in the Finnish capital Helsinki where abandoned wooden houses were left in a forest near the seashore. I’m an artist and designer, but also I like to travel with my camera. So I collected a lot of shots of local landmarks, signs and other urban details.
It was a rainy midday, May 6, 2015. The rain started in the moment when I found the place and parked my car, but I had no choice.
Definitely the light, time and weather were bad for photography. But in some way these unfortunate conditions coincided with a feeling that caused by abandoned half-destroyed villas.
I used just my old Canon 350D with EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens.
I am looking for marks and signs of the fleeting time in my travel or city shots.
As I remember I used some filters, curves and other instruments, and I left a very small amount of color.
In my camera bag
I don’t count myself a professional photographer. Usually a have my camera with EFS 17-85mm lens. When I go on a trip, I take with me one or two more lenses.
I can say one thing. Before any trip take the time to explore everything that may be near your route.
