I really am an evening person. I love how the light quietly softens and finally creeps away. I love how the streetlights start switching on, one by one. I love it when the birds of the day get quiet and the mysterious night singers start. I love to see the shadows of threes and buildings change shape. I love the idea that any time now is the moment when you could get away with anything. I love how the city gets quiet. I love how all the benches in the park are unoccupied. I really love the night.
However, today there is a festival by the name of Ilosaarirock in town. I can here the music right now, inside my apartment. This city, as most cities in Finland, is usually very safe, even by night. But today, with 22 000 metal heads hanging around I really did feel a teensy bit uneasy when thinking about going for a walk at night. So, I had to reschedule my walk for earlier. I took my camera along just in case, and indeed, it was like a walk in the park to take some pictures on a walk in a park by the river.
I was really intrigued by the difference in the calmness of the river on the opposite sides of the water divider.
The lake was not calm at all.
On my way back, I saw these guys on their evening fishing trip. It may not be apparent in the silhouette, but these men were definitely the embodiment of three generations in their family. How traditional ^^
