March 15–22: miscellaneous
Hanasaari power station on the way back from Laajasalo. Quite attractively designed for a power station.
The metro passes deep underground through the center of Helsinki; this is the escalator back up to Kamppi, looking up...
and looking back down.
Work was being done next to Stockmann between Esplanadi and Aleksi, and it was constantly so brightly lit that it seemed almost like a natural history museum display or something.
Pohjola at night again.
Aleksi at night. (I like to refer to both the building and Aleksanterinkatu as Aleksi.)
Crisp morning light on the apartment block next to the tram stop.
The sun, just before the spring equinox, much higher than when we arrived. This is a view east from the tram on Kronberginkatu on Katajanokka.
An oncoming tram rounding the corner just as we were.
The front of Kamppi. The ground level (from this side; further back the land rises up so the ground floor there is up a level) houses the Espoo bus terminal, which is where we always caught the buses to TKK.
Another power station, this one in Salmisaari, on the western edge of the city, almost the twin of the Hanasaari one. Their footprints are nearly the same size and they're both oriented diagonally to the cardinal directions. Weird.
Sun across my studio desk, just before the spring equinox.
And across the kitchen floor, just after the equinox.
The Yliopisto building in some bright overcast light. This is one of my favorite sorts of weather conditions.
