I have looked at Helsinki with a tourist eye as I have seen my friends in the city. Catching up with friends is so much fun, I should take take time more often than I do. Best thing about good friends is that they remain that even if you don’t see that often. Helsinki has not lost its appeal to me even if I visit it less frequently.
I will be posting more photos from my trip when I am over the euphoria of spring. But at the moment I will leave this topic for the next rainy day.
I am trying to get my photos from January posted, so I can get to my current photos. I actually have some new ones, not many, but few. This post has photos from the skyline of Hong Kong, buildings. I most likely will later post some of them again by themselves, but the elimination process is hard.
It was in December that I visited Hong Kong and only now I went throught the photos, so they are new in that sense. I have been in a slump as I’ve stated before, now I am on the way up. My aim was to post the photos in a time line, but no, I will post them as I feel like. I will go back to my minimalist approach, few words and hopefully the picture will deliver what I want to convey; The world as I see it.
These are first impressions of the city after our arrival in the evening.
We saw the Sydney Bridge during day and during night time. Near and far here are the some of the day shots.
My feet are killing me. We have used the tram, ferry, underground and a taxi and walked around the city. All photos with the mobile phone.
It is that time of the year again that survival is definitely on my mind. The all consuming darkness drains me. I will survive, I have sunshine on the horizon in December. Most likely most of my photos will be by my mobile as the darkness does not really invite you to take photos unless you are in a city. I do not often go to Helsinki, but the day we got the first snow, not officially, it melted ½ hour before it could have been mentioned as first snow. I saw it and for me it was the first snow of the season. I have to admit I was not thrilled about it. Helsinki railway station in the evening is what I will share as my first post for November.
