I live in the east part of Finland in a city called Joensuu and I like to document our four beautiful seasons with my analogue cameras. My most used cameras are Yashica Electro 35, Minolta Dynax 500si, Olympus XA2, Minox 35GT and Konica C35 EF. I take a lot of pictures in our city but also like to travel to nature and wilderness which is always near here.

The pictures here are taken of half-frozen lake Pyhäselkä near my hometown. It's close enough to reach after a workday. They call Finland as a "land a thousand lakes" as we always have water and lakes nearby. During winters you can take your analogue camera with you and walk or ski on the frozen lake and visit some of the many islands on the lake.
