Helsinki: Docks and Industry

Some pictures I took last autumn, in various areas in Helsinki. Helsinki is located on and peninsula which means the sea is always near. Here follows a set of pics showing parts of the docks of my city.

Enjoy



















































































Thanks for viewing, hope you liked them.

Yeah I guess it is. In fact the suburbs are a bit too green for my liking
