April 6: Helsinki landing
The next morning, arriving back in Helsinki.
A puffy visitor.
It was a foggy morning.
Passing by Suomenlinna.
Katajanokka and the Hanasaari power station beyond and SEAGULL PHOTOBOMB
A zoom of Katajanokka in the vicinity of our apartment building, and Hanasaari.
Entering the harbor, the cathedral over to the right.
The Viking terminal on Katajanokka, plus the cathedrals.
The #3 tram on the way to Kaivopuisto.
The Rosella tagging along just after us.
A view back out toward the sea.
A battle of wills.
Looking up Vuorimiehenkatu; the spire of Mikael Agricolan kirkko (Church of Michael Agricola) in the distance. (Mikael Agricola was the 16th-c. Finnish bishop who established written Finnish.)
Leaving the terminal.
View back on the beginning of the walk home.
Across the harbor, over and beyond the Katajanokka canal.
The Two Ferries.
One of my more fortuitous sightings. I call it "The Pigeon Backbeat." (The second beat is wondering why I'm standing there.)
Clouds beginning to clear up; here looking down Kruunuvuorenkatu on Katajanokka.
Oblique sun on an oblique wall.
The sky with its multi cloud layers almost looks like one of those artist's renderings of the atmosphere of Jupiter or Saturn.
