“Red brick” Wednesday

Good day people! As promised the cold pics keep on coming like the hits from your local radio station (with a bit more originality in the selection though ;) ). Among these photos is one of my favourite pictures of this year, so far. I don’t exactly know why I like these “red brick buildings”, but I at least think they look nice when contrasted to the white snow :)

More photos again tomorrow, don’t forget to check ’em out!

 

The Tallest Building in Helsinki

For someone who’s never been in Helsinki, or looked at pictures of the city online, it might come as a surprise that the tallest building in midtown HKI is a mere 15-16 floors,give or take. ┬áNow, I am not going to lecture you about it’s history, that you can find on Wikipedia(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotel_Torni). However, what I am going to do is simply share a couple of photos of the Nordic capital that is Helsinki. So, without further ado I give you a few glimpses over this lil’ ol’ town, which I took as I had a coffee up on top of the Hotel Torni in the rather nice Cafe Ateljee.
