It's been a while since I visited Helsinki, so I haven't seen this one myself. But this sculpture has got it's share of fame on Finnish news. Quite an extraordinary piece of art, maybe better as a temporary installation rather than if it would stay there permanently. Good viewpoint across the water on warm afternoon light.
The background shows probably the biggest conflict of styles in Finnish architecture: Uspenski Cathedral, and the headquarters of Stora Enso in front.

Windsurfers are always interesting to watch on windy beaches. On this view also the background looks quite inviting, promising relaxing beach life. I wish i get a chance to visit Sardegna some day, in Christmas Eve our cruise ship just sailed past the island.

In Bergen You really can find old wooden buildings in pristine condition right at the city center. Lovely looking house with all the flowers and clear blue walls. At the end of June the dayes are indeed very long.

Quite impressive combination of sunlit gravestones and big city background. Strong contrasts make this special. I wonder what the place looks like nowadays, I might guess that at least some of the stones have tumbled down.
There are so few photos of this era in TE and as such they feel like gems.
