Hämeentie (Tavastvägen in Swedish) is a major road from central Helsinki towards northeast - currently it is under heavy reconstruction and only one half is in use and the traffic is currently restricted to busses and taxis


One of the side streets towards Torkkelinmäki hill from Hämeentie is Sakarinkatu (Zachrisgatan) - I have some fond memories of this street since I used to live there, sadly I took this picture from an angle that hides my former home building

Took a stroll in Alppila and Kallio...

Linnanmäki amusement park is one of the better known attractions in Helsinki among the kids


A new fancier roller coaster is being built there


Although the old wooden one (seen in the centre of this picture and also in the first one) is the traditional favourite


No winter maintenance


The former Library for the Blind is nowadays hosting a daycare


And this building was originally School for the Blind, but now functions as advisory centre for enterprises with fancy name "Yrityslinna" (Enterprise castle)


Helsinki City Theatre


This building hosts "Snellu", Specialized Youth Work centre of the Parish Union of Helsinki

Today morning I decided to wake up early and to Alakivi park in Myllypuro, not too far from where I live.

This park has interesting history: originally it used to host a landfill till 1962, then in the 1970s it was turned into a residential area. Near the turn of the millenium, it was found out that the land under these housing projects was contaminated with enviromental toxins and that would pose a risk for the people living there. That meant that the people living in these apartment buildings had to move and eventually the buildings were demolished. Then the former residental area was properly cleaned and toxic materials were sealed in concrete and/or plastic and the area was turned into park with a landmark hill.

This is how Myllypuro looks from that hill


And this picture then shows also the reason why I went out into cold (-15°C or so) in darkness.


Some of the slopes of this park have also got some interesting lighting:

In winter Helsinki usually gets some snow. Now, obviously when there is significant amounts of snow on the streets it has to be removed. But what you do with all that snow you have removed from the streets?

You can dump it on large piles on designated land plots or you could do this:


Sony RX10 IV @ 205.6 mm (35 mm equivalent: 561 mm), f/4, 1/1000 s, ISO 100
(So yes, the occasional non-A/E-mount ILC picture)
