Beach house.

Photographed on the shores of Seurasaari (Helsinki, Finland).

Have I shown you this house yet? I know I have roughly one dozen photographs of it from various angles, so I am sure it has appeared here at least once, but just in case, here is a close look at this beautiful house.

This photograph was difficult to get, and I am not entirely happy with it because the lines in the image are all akimbo: even though they are straight lines, they are not parallel to each other, so this made it very difficult to photograph the house.

    Thanks for posting this. I visited Helsinki this summer, and enjoyed exploring Seurasaari.

    I was impressed by the squirrels going so far as to tug on my pant legs to get my attention, but didn’t have a camera with me. The next day, I had a half hour to go back and try to capture some video — but the squirrels were nowhere to be seen.

    A really special place.

    Those squirrels are vicious, even more so in winter. I also think they’re in league with the ducks.

    No doubt – I got the feeling they were hiding and laughing at me.
