Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Posted on

The world’s biggest international arts festival came and went. A month of madness in August when the city’s population triples and public transport becomes annoyingly slow. We spent the first two weeks of August in Finland, so we only took part during the two last weekends. Which was just enough for me.

A Day In Tallinn

Tere!

While in Finland we decided to visit Tallinn for a day so Matthew would see something else than my lovely home country on his holiday. It’s only two hours away by ferry, and the tickets are quite cheap too, as are the prices in Tallinn. I can’t remember how many times I’ve visited the city, but I really like the old medieval town (that is also the main tourist trap.)

Forgotten Photos From 1970

Hi all,

When we were in Finland and visiting our summer house (that we call ‘the Villa’) Matthew found an old film spool lying on the floor. He got a little bit obsessed with it and decided to get it developed here in Edinburgh. We found out that they stopped making this 120 mm film 20 years ago. It had to have belonged to my grandfather who was into his photography. As he passed away in 1988 the film must’ve been at least 30 years old.

My twin brother got married to his lovely wife on August 3rd in Porvoo cathedral, Finland. It was a sunny and warm summer day and I was so happy that both Matthew and I could be there! Here’s a few samples of the 400 photos we managed to take during the day.
