This is the Ateneum Art Museum, just across the main railway station of Helsinki. I've always wanted to visit this museum but schedules seemed to conspire and prevented me from doing so when I was on a five-week study break there in 2007. Last year, on the last day of my week-long stay in Finland, I finally got the chance to walk through its galleries. Only a building with a facade like this can call itself the home of fascinating Finnish masters as well as visual arts stalwarts like Van Gogh and Gauguin.

That it was a delight is a great understatement.

Litratong Pinoy: KALYE (Street)

Dahil sa o bagaman naninirahan sila sa anino ng Bulkang Mayon, tuluy-tuloy (pa rin) ang pagdaloy ng kalakal at kabuhayan sa mga pasikut-sikot ng lalawigan ng Albay.


Despite or because of Mayon Volcano looming over their land, the people of Albay province enjoy the steady influx of trade and tourism.

That crazy cacophony of the city, its madding crowd: can't live with it, can't live without it..

PhotoHunt: CLOSED

I pass by this car repair shop twice everyday, and I find it always closed, probably because my day starts too early and ends too late compared to the shop's. I hope the only thing that will draw me to it is its funky color and not any car trouble.
