It is that time of year again. I am off to England for the Holidays but this photograph if from my time in Lapland a year ago.
My first attempt at editing a Christmas card. Tell me what you think?
Another version on my Facebook page, that one features an image from Helsinki.
On a quest to find that perfect view.
The sculpture World Peace was donated by the City of Moscow as part of the Cities’ Friendship and cultural exchange program. The five statues represent the five continents and raise their hands in solidarity for world peace, above them a globe decorated by foliage. Designed by Oleg Kirjuhin and unveiled in 1990, the sculpture stands at over 6 meters tall.
You can find almost 500 outdoor sculptures, pieces of environmental art and historical monuments in Helsinki and they are accessible to everyone. See more and search through the database at HAMhelsinki.fi.
The narrow view to the tower of the graveyard is made even more narrow during summer.
