My favorite bridge

9 Feb

I cross over this bridge near Arabia when I walk from my apartment into town. It’s not a particularly picturesque part of town, but the views from this bridge are always remarkable! I like looking at the city from a distance under the open sky…

      The view of the bridge is not too impressive…it’s more like an overpass!

    Is that the bridge with the little row houses off to one side? If so, I always thought those were so unique compared to all apartment buildings found in Helsinki.

      That’s the one! I love those little houses and have always been curious to know who actually lives there and if they live there year-round…Any ideas?

        And it is not allowed to live in those shacks year-round.

    The blue of the sky in the first picture is marvelous ! It’s like indigo.
