May 14: evening run
Late that evening, I tried something new out, which I didn't do again until a number of years later: 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.
Wellamo Corner in the pink sunset light.
Nice airbrushy clouds.
The Merihaka towers under the clearing line.
Uspenski and the crew in the pink cloud light.
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.
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.
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).
A glimpse of the cathedral.
Uspenski in the gathering dusk.
Twilight still bright near the northern horizon, accompanied by firefly-like streetlights.
Wellamo Corner again, just barely visible.
The docked icebreakers.
An assortment of lights.
The view out toward Hanasaari, twilight still bright below the clouds.
Merihaka to Hanasaari.
Isobrightness in Merisotilaantori.
The last bit of twilight from the kitchen window.
