May 14: evening run

Late that evening, I tried something new out, which to this day I've only done that once: taking my camera along on a run. I think my motivation was the colorful sunset and wanting to take some pix of places I'd only seen on runs before, without camera. It worked okay.

Framed view to the north from a court on a hill in Kruununhaka, the Kallio church steeple just visible at the left edge of the gap.

I kept the camera on a lot of the time to keep from having to manually open the lens each time I wanted to take a picture, as the camera was partly busted. Sometimes this meant accidental action shots.

Sunset buses.

The shoreway along the south side of Siltasaari ("Bridge Island"), a small peninsula between the center and Kallio.

And then the shoreway along the north side, looking toward the drummish office building by Hakaniemi.

1356

Siltasaari contains only three (large) blocks of buildings, but among them is some really neat Jugend architecture, including this stone edifice which is called Graniittilinna (the Granite Castle) or at least contains a restaurant of said name, per Google Maps.

Those great Hakaniemi buildings (seen in several shots here in the sunlight).

There was this pair of gates/tunnels under buildings back in Kruununhaka, letting the lane Siltavuorenpenger through, that allowed this view down to Unioninkatu.

A view south along Snellmaninkatu. Liking those quoins on the left there.

Quite the place at the northern terminus of Snellmaninkatu (although it is admittedly quite difficult to see here).

More Jugend.
