Gallery: Helsinki, Finland – a very brief picture walk

| June 4, 2012 | 28 Replies

Finally got myself my own stock photo to use in future posts 😀 This was also a crop, something I'd expect to be doing a lot with 808 🙂

After a quick refuelling and catching up on some stories, I went back out for a little walk around the hotel. As requested, here are some pics. Though I didn’t really know what I should be snapping.

Given that I’ve enever been this far north before, I have never experienced such long daylight. It was as bright as a bright summer 5PM in the UK as it was 8PM in Finland. I kinda feel I’m still -2H (GMT). I wish I had the Nokia 808 PureView with me to have shot these instead.

As I said, I wasn’t sure where to go, I didn’t use maps to check out anything, I just strolled along the a little bit of Helsinki. It’s such a beautiful city – at early evening it’s very chilled, very laid back.

The streets feel like a labyrinth, with tallish buildings dividing different areas.

But I didn’t feel lost because they were set out more like a grid, so you can free from quite far down another street/building I might have walked past so it’s very easy to get my bearings. It’s very orderly. Some of the roads have tram tracks.

It’s not all buildings – there are some bits of park and greenery too (and probably more if I bothered to venture out further).

I did notice some Angry Birds fighting. They were scaring the locals, fighting over food, skimming past people. I found them rather entertaining.

I dunno – I found their park bench pretty too. It’s all very stylish here. Especially with those birds perched in the background.

Well that’s it for now. Tomorrow we get on to the Nokia stuffs 🙂
