Thank you Pagefan55.

Don't know why you can't see my photos WLL4LZ.

Anyway, here's couple of pics from our capital city Helsinki. First the most famous landmark, Helsinki Cathedral:

Another famous landmark, the Uspenski Cathedral:

^ Knew I was missing something good - what beautiful photos Marlam!

For some reason I can't see your last few photos when I use my mobile(which I nearly always use) but can see them now on my laptop.

The last 2 bring back good memories from when I visited Helsinki quite a few years ago now - many hours wandering around the city - spending time at the cathedrals taking photos from every angle. Not religious but love churches - especially the inside of Orthodox ones - so beautiful. Think we jumped on trams (?) - people were lovely.

Thank you. Did you visit Suomenlinna fortress? I've always wanted to go there but never had time. Perhaps next year.

^ We saw part of it from outside but unfortunately we didn't get the chance to go in. I also remember the cafe in the crypt up behind the cathedral & there was a market in town. We enjoyed our time there.

*Shirtfront: Old Australian slang for high tackle/block in Australian rules football.

So proud (not)

Marlam, if you don't mind sharing, what brand and or model camera do you use? My camera went bouncing down a set of cement stairs like a Slinky. I would like to buy a new one without going too crazy on the price. I'd like one that is good for taking photos at concerts - cell phones take horrible photos under the bright lights of a show. But it also has to be a model that is allowed into a concert venue.

I've got a few photos taken with my cell phone that I'd like to share. Somehow I was able to get a doe to pose for me :-).

My camera is Olympus SP-620UZ. It's pretty good considering I only paid 99€ for it. Don't know how well it would work in concerts though.

Hi CP. Yes, I knew York is in England. I spent three days there back in the late 90's and left feeling like I would have liked to have spent a LOT more time there -- I loved the city's history, architecture, atmosphere and ambiance.
