My Helsinki is not always just grey, or grey and green. There are days when it’s golden and blue, but in a very different way compared to Cape Town. The sun is shining low and mild instead of high and harsh. The blue of Helsinki is light instead of deep. The golden is warm and long and soft instead of dry and intense.
I’ve always loved the zesty sunny Autumn days of Helsinki. One evening this week I took my camera out for a short slow walk, this is how our hood looks like, and this is where I go running. In my very subjective view absolutely the most beautiful, most interesting, most authentic, and most international part of Helsinki.
