Days aren’t siblings. Sunday was a sun day. This is the view from the Ullanlinna jetty towards Kaivopuisto.

Going north of the jetty, this flower was still there in October.

On the way to the north of Harakka, a look back on the path. The artists have their own boats, which they are keeping on the shore.

On the next installment, we continue north and up the hill.

  1. Ice Swimmer says

    “Days aren’t siblings” is a paraphrasing of a Finnish saying: “Vuodet eivät ole veljiä keskenään.” It means: “Years aren’t brothers to each other.” That is, not at all alike, often.

  2. Nightjar says

    The first photo is really nice, I love the contrast between the blue and the autumn colours.

    The little flower and the birch are beautiful.

  3. Ice Swimmer says

    Thank you!

    Sunshine in autumn is lovely, but it also makes one feel a bit melancholic to see the sun shining from a low angle and knowing that the gray skies will be there soon (as they were).
