Autumn in Oulu

Early on Sunday morning I went to Oulu market place to picture the old red magazines. Light was low, people were few and colours were bright.
I embraced the combination of red, yellow and grey.
Details of old handicraft. Oulu used to be a busy port for tar exportation. The magazines were used for storing the barrels before they were loaded to the ships sailing to England, Spain, France, Portugal, Germany and heaven knows where else to.

Tar is no longer needed in large quantities and the old log magazines have become shops and restaurants.
