Photographer's Note

A tourist taking a picture of the lower part of the Old town of Tallinn, Estonia, from the Toompea Hill in the city centre. The church is called Oleviste Kirik and is dedicated to the Norwegian King Olav II (995–1030, also known as Saint Olav). It was originally built in the 12th century, rebuilt about two hundred years later and got its present tower in about 1500 AD. For some decades in the late 16th century it was supposed to be the world's tallest building after a storm had destroyed the central spire of Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1549.

When the husband of the woman taking that picture discovered me, he quickly asked her to move aside to give me an undisturbed view. That was of course a very nice gesture, but they didn't know that I was mainly interested in using her yellow pack as a foreground for my own picture.
