photoblog image Helsinki

Helsinki

Some more shots from Helsinki two weeks ago. I loved this statue right by the central train station. It is quite a large statue (of which this is only the head) of Aleksis Kivi, the author of the first significant Finnish novel, Seven Brothers.

The poor unhappy guy...crying so much.

Love this image, Charles.
Very beautiful. I like the blue dripping, and hope it is copper like I think and not some toxic bird droppings! smile
I wonder what those blue things are .. but still, an amazing portrait !
Charles Dastodd: I think a combination of rain and pigeon poop smile

Great stuff Charles: the streaking gives him a melancholy look.
A well weathered statue..plus the pigeons.

beautiful pic! nice streaks in the statue ...!
Nice shot, I've been to Helsinki but only in the winter, when rather cold and bleak.
Sad and vibrant at the same time.
