Today I saw first time in Oulu wood anemones and of course I share the joy with you. Near by is Priki park and wood anemones is blooming now.
Following text is from information board at the park:
"Priki Park, growing in its natural state, is situated in the middle of the housing blocks and is connected to the green zones of Toppilansaari and the Oulu River Delta via Lundström Park.
Priki Park is constructed by hand to protect the vegetation. Management aims to maintain the rare habitat of the wood anemone, the versatile vegetation and the trees."
(While I was lying on the ground taking photos some kids came and ask what I was doing. Their opinion about flower photographs was that it’s totally misuse of good camera and quite silly too.)

My plan was to take a sunset photo from my balcony but before setting sun went behind clouds. For some reason this view catch my eye. There is some sadness in early summer evenings and maybe you can sense it from this photo. I shot this at 9.30 PM so you can see that we have already those light summer nights.

I tried today catch up that pointillist impression of new birch leaves, but it was much difficult than I expected. My best shot was this one, and there is no birch but hagberry instead. I think those leafs look like bright butterflies in forest.

In honour of 105 years old Oulu market hall this interior photo. Actually the market hall building was ready a week earlier, 1st fo May, but the business started on 8th of May. At first marketeers didn’t want to go inside from the market place open sky, so armed imperial soldiers compelled them to do so by order.
Market hall is drawn by architects Karl Lindahl and Walter Thome. Its costs was in those days 13 200 mk (79 200 €). Oulu market hall is the fifth biggest in Finland.
Idea for today’s photo and all these interesting information I got from local newspaper Kaleva, thaks to writer Jonna Pulkkinen.

Today I happened to be at pedestrian street when there was a little demonstration behalf of legalizing home growth marijuana. First banderol with hearts asks: "a bit more gently, please". Second: "Let the flowers bloom" and the green one says "No for criminality, lets grow at home"

This is the building from which yesterdays detail photo was shot. It is former SOK office and store, designed by architect Erkki Huttunen. It was reconstruct at 1938 (or 1940, I found different knowledge). In these days there is lot of different, bigger and smaller companies, including the one I'm working with.
Yesterday I shot the photo at main door (middle of this photo behind those greenish bushes), under very beautifully shaped canopy.
