At the moment I’m enjoying biting freezing winter weathers in Finland. It’s freezing all the way from Lapland to Helsinki, which make it possible to walk on the waters. When the temperature is between -5 to -16 and the day is sunny, one can walk on the sea. Check it out:
This video is from the landscapes of Kuusamo in North of Finland. Some say Kuusamo is not yet Lapland, but to me it looked very much like it. This video was shot on top of Ruka during the ruska time in September, when the weather is cool and the trees are colourful.
Last spring 2017 I did photography on all the Helsinki metrostations, from one end to the other, from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari, and made them into collages.
It was not an easy job, since most of the people passing by looked at me as if I was taking selfies only.
You know, Helsinki has alltogether 17 metrostations by the end of summer 2017, but here covered are all the 14 stations from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari only, because for a tourist those missing 3 metrostations, Myllypuro, Kontula and Mellunmäki, don’t have much relevance. But in case you wish to visit those places, you can change the metro in Itäkeskus and it will take you there.
Another reason is, that sooner or later, this same metroline I’m talking about, metro from Vuosaari to Ruoholahti, will take you all the way from Vuosaari to neighbouring Espoo city as well. So this article is also a salute to all the people in Espoo getting to know Helsinki, in addition to all the other tourists coming to Helsinki, Finland from all over the world. So here they are, with the photocollages and relevant links to Finnish introductions, to traveltips in English and to Insta images –
All the Helsinki metrostations from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari
Helsinki metro starts from Ruoholahti, which is two stops from the centre to the west direction.
Itäkeskus is the last metrostop where you can travel with any metro you take from Helsinki centre. After Itäkeskus you will go either to Vuosaari direction or Mellunmäki direction. Here in this article we will go towards Vuosaari.
See this artistically inspired photo collage from Itäkeskus metrotunnel bigger in the following link Itäkeskus in Finnish.
Now in Helsinki, Finland, you have an excellent chance to get unique art on your wall, because at the moment there in the groupartexhibition in Kaapelitehdas, Puristamo, is my drawing of Vanhankaupunginkoski, which is a beautiful place in Helsinki with river rapids running to the sea. Vanhankaupunginkoski is definitely worth seeing.
The exhibition in guestion is open in Kaapelitehdas until 18.9. and there’s also fabulous art ceramics exhibiting from Poland at the same time with Finnish art, until day after tomorrow. Very much recommendable.
Also in the same exhibition until Sunday is my painting, Anonymous, of which the image displayed is from.
