May 4–11: miscellaneous
Another miscellany, focused on the ubiquity of the sun by this point.
Late sun on some office buildings on the back way home from TKK.
Late sun on Rautatieasema and Sokos.
The gunite-covered foundation hole along Merikasarminkatu on the way back to the apartment.
Twilight over the Katajanokka Jugend quarter.
The view from the apartment balcony out toward Korkeasaari and Hanasaari and beyond.
Ever more copious sun.
Still waxing moon.
Definitive white nights were happening by this point, which was really exciting.
I took a walk fairly late in the evening but before sunset, I think to take a break from the marathon of finishing up my final drawings.
The camera lens was pretty well caked.
Blue, yellow and green.
The buds were opening up just in time for us to leave before the leaves really showed up fully.
Eastern view just off shore. I didn't want to have to leave just as things were getting so pretty, but there it was.
Severe clear sunset.
It's quite something how varied in color a clear sky often is around sunset; it's not just a simple gradient.
More flora springing back to life.
A little more sun on the way back to the apartment.
The laundry alley.
The sun was finding its way around into every corner.
There was quite a rainstorm on final review day; this is looking over the TKK campus from Paja.
The sun showed up for a bit before being swallowed up again.
A look inside Lasipalatsi after our post-review dinner there.
11:20 PM and still lots of color in the sky!
The typical nighttime illumination of the lobby.
The elevators only had single-layer doors, which is why this one is seen to be descending.
