This is the third and final post on Tallinn.
As you can see from the earlier photos, there is a lot to see and do in the thriving capital of Estonia. Summer or Christmas time are maybe the best times to visit but whenever you go, there is always plenty to do.
The town square in the old city. There are many churches in the city, some very beautiful to look at.
Beautiful small details on a street store. Lovely color as well.
The rain, a constant companion on this trip.
Old well on the street. I can almost smell the history of a place looking at such details.
No trip would not be complete without enjoying some of the finer things in life.
Excellent cake, a great treat for a pause from roaming the streets.
Again with the contrast of old buildings in bad condition and a brand new Range Rover. Lovely car, would be great in Finnish winter or in the Sahara..
Punk is not dead!
Citywalls still stand.
I highly recommend anyone visiting Europe to visit Tallinn. Also a fun thing to do would be to visit Helsinki and Tallinn both. For the budget minded Tallinn is the better bet though..
Continuing on the first post on Tallinn. Sorry for the very slow updating, work has been totally immersive and the last thing on my mind after a workday has been to sit on the computer and type.
This post is mainly photos of Tallinn, street shooting so to speak. As cities go, Tallinn is, very friendly place to photograph and there are excellent backdrops for a nice background. Ultimately these photos may not be the best I have taken, but I like the mood an feel they can convey a little bit of the spirit of the city.
As is evident from these photos the weather was damp to say it nicely. But this of course can have its positive sides as well with reflections etc. Just a matter of spotting the positives I guess.
Small side streets for pedestrians in the old city.
The old city is mainly cobblestone so good shoes are a must.
To hold the hand of ones lover makes even the worst weather a bliss.
A bank, and in front a Mercedes S65 AMG.. Somehow goes to show how the bankers get rich while the rest of us well.. Don’t..
Students mingling on the streets in the afternoon.
Reflections. This scene immediately caught my eye. Lovely reflection and just a bit of waiting to get the people aligned in the right place.
All photos taken with old but trusty digital dinosaurs by Nikon.
