Thin crowd in Helsinki streets is one reason that makes outdoor photography in Helsinki simple. On a bright day , while strolling along Mannerheimintie and around Kanavakatu , I captured several interesting shots on glass facades of imposing buildings. Sunlight made taking photos of North-South roads difficult as shadow of one row of buildings dictated the quality of the capture.

on the glass exterior of 'Music Center ', Helsinki.
Sun-light & shadow spoilsport !
Tram-route 4, as it turns off Kanavakatu.
Shadows bring another kind of rewarding photo opportunity too. I found two interesting shadows of Uspenski Cathedral's Cupola on a neighbouring building. And......several shapes of shadows on other buildings.
The prized photo-capture of reflection among the ones I have collected is that of the tower of National Museum of Helsinki upon the black glass panes of a mini-van parked in Lippuautomatti parking lot, just off the Mannerheimintie . Reflection of a tree and its branches makes the image more captivating !
