As an April Fool it started to snow on Sunday and it really hasn’t stopped after that.
Photos from the Finnish Capital

Finns are often asked how can we cope with our depressingly short winter days and I’m always tempted to answer with a question: “How can you cope with your depressingly short summer days?” From Helsinki it is still a long way to the arctic circle where the sun doesn’t set at all during the summer. In Finland you can enjoy midnight sun in the city of Rovaniemi or any place to the north of it.
Unfortunately this theme day came too soon as there is a huge temporary empty space in Helsinki right now but I have to show it to you later and similarly my midnight photo was supposed to contain something more interesting.
I’ve also made a collection for my 12 personal favourite images from this blog’s entries during the first half of year 2009.
A temporary legal graffiti wall has just been opened at Suvilahti. If the rest of the neighbourhood stays clean, a concrete graffiti fence will be built for the same purpose next summer.
