mittens

These colorful mittens were plentiful at a street market in Helsinki, Finland. With winter being in full swing, just looking at this makes my fingers and toes feel a little bit warmer. The great irony of this photo is that it was taken mid-summer! Obviously, the Finnish are well- adapted and prepared for cold weather. Local markets are always a great place to capture the essence of a place, but don’t forget that the souvenirs of a destination can tell a story too! PHOTO TIP: When photographing market stall displays, fill the frame for a more impactful image.
