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.
We saw the Sydney Bridge during day and during night time. Near and far here are the some of the day shots.
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.

This weeks entry to LEANNE COLE Photography Monochrome Madness 3-51 challenge is a view to Helsinki City Hall , it is a central administrative building of Helsinki. The city hall is located next to Market Square at the moment rather quiet, but as summer comes it will be fill of orange tents.
Helsinki our capital is such a beautiful city, that is my opinion 🙂 I took these pictures when walking to the train after a meeting…mobile phones do have good cameras now days
