May 12: Porvoo old town
We walked all around the old town with its picturesque cobbly streets.
The east side of the church.
Think I snapped this while on the move.
The north side of the church and tower.
Bashful car is bashful.
I like how refined and solid this fence seems except for the grass lolling in the big gap below it.
Cobbles and claps.
An assortment of roof distances.
This fence means business, no grass sneaking through under there.
This looks like a locust at first glance, but those hangy things aren't bean pods as they would be on a locust. They look more like samara clusters or something.
First flowers of spring, maybe? Hi guys.
A roofsnowcatcher, something I'm more accustomed to seeing in Switzerland.
Some eave details for yall.
This is a cool weird old building.
Some proud mortar beads.
The beads in a wider context.
We visited the recently built library, designed by Tuomo Siitonen Architects and completed back in time in 1999.
Maybe we were told what this building was, but if so, I forget; looks like a big ol' factory.
Kirjasto bibliotek rainscreen. The letters look a little like unlit neon letters, wish they were.
Rabbit bollard. Rabbollard.
A big front plaza for the library.
An elevated view inside.
These book cabinets are part of some kind of cool automated technology, but I forget quite what it does.
Nice lil' covered amphitheater outside one corner of the library.
