Winter feel Helsinki14

I love these snow-covered trees, and snow in general. There is also a practical reason why some people are so happy about snow here up North: since it reflects light the days (and also the nights) are much brighter when some snow falls.

We had today this years` first real snow in Helsinki, this means that tomorrow (or on Sunday) it is camera-time again. As I got off from the bus today evening I had to stop and have a look at the scenery. Every year when the first snow comes, it is the same feeling: everything looks so beautiful.

Luckily I can go to take those pictures- I was not so sure about this since there was a little accident happening in Copenhagen. 

Somehow I left the camera backpack half-open and as I took it off from my back when I sat down the camera fell to the ground. That awful noise when the camera hit the ground was just as bad as when I heard my own foot breaking last autumn.

Life is an adventure, right?

I spent today evening with some meaningful activities besides getting the camera checked. I gave away a bag full of old stuff again. I was hesitating between selling and giving away, but when I realized what might be my real motive for giving away, I decided to do so.

By the evening I arrived at the conclusion of the day: even if it is not yours any more, you do not really loose something what you give away freely.

Helsingør Biblioteker (Denmark)

This is a public library in Denmark. Amazing. I like countries where the access to beautiful and nice things is not only the privilege of a few. An other great fact: the entrance to almost all museums was free in Copenhagen. Something worth to follow.
