Photo of the Day #34: The Wall
We were on a day trip across the Gulf of Finland to Tallinn, Estonia this July. It's just amazing how much older the city is compared to Helsinki (or Tampere or Espoo for that matter). It has a recorded history of almost a thousand years and it was much more important as a Hansa town than any place in Finland. The old town is full of amazing buildings, but my favorite is the wall.
From the edge of the old town, the city of Tallinn opens up -or down, if you consider it being much lower than the old town. For this photo I used a wide angle lens, so everything looks a bit bent. Hope it doesn't detract from the shot.
