the rotermann quarter sun trap
A few weeks ago I posted some photos I took at Rotermann Quarter in Tallinn here. In those photos I had played around a lot with shadows because many of the buildings have windows and even mirrors that reflect light really well. What’s fun about Rotermann is that as soon as you turn a corner, you can end up in an open courtyard kind of space that captures more light. Instead of there being starker shadows I found the light to be much brighter but also softer at the same time. I actually think it’s only possible to get this light there for a short time because the courtyard is so small (for anyone wondering I’m talking about the space in front of Carmen Cafe and Pull & Bear).
In other news- I’m now back in Edinburgh for a few weeks. Later on this afternoon we’re driving to Glencoe and I am SO excited! Even though I’ve lived in Scotland on and off for a looooong time I’ve basically only spent time in Edinburgh and Glasgow and the motorway between the two cities haha. I’d kept my eye on this awesome bothy for months but it was sold out for ages so I finally just booked a hotel near Oban for 2 nights and we’ll drive to Glencoe tomorrow I think. It’ll be so nice to get out of Edinburgh and actually see more of the country. I’m embarrassed that it’s taken us to long to finally do it. Because I’ll obvs take my camera with me on this mini weekend roadtrip I’ll be taking tons of photos so watch out for some Scotland posts next week!
