Travelling and photography
are both a continuity of the past, present and future.
A travel photo, taken yesterday or decades ago,
connects this day to the past,
and gives an inspiration to visit that place in the future.
Tourists (my wife’s grandparents) in Terijoki during 1930’s.
Terijoki was the “The Riviera of Finland”during the first decades of 1900’s. It had long sandy shores, spas, wooden decorated villas and plenty of visitors.
Soviet troops occupied Terijoki during the later stages of the 2nd World War and was annexed to the Soviet Union in 1944.
We should visit Terijoki (Zelenogorsk today) one day, walk on the same sandy shores as our relatives long time ago. It is next to us, but to get there today is not that simple. It is easier to go to China, for example. Unfortunately.
