My brain is still spinning on rusted, heavy wheels after the weekend in Helsinki, but fun days and sleepless nights always take their hard toll. The weekend was made of treasure hunting, burlesque, a small bootcamp and veggie sushi to name a couple of things, but also a carnival of glowing lights. And that's what this post is all about.
These pics are from the Carnival of Light in the local amusement park that was just around the corner, and we went to absorb some of that warmly gleaming atmosphere in. I have a thing for Ferris wheels and merry-go-rounds (preferably abandoned) so I felt extremely excited to visit that place after so so many years! Chilly autumn air, circus lights, screams of excitement and fright all over the place and a slightly tipsy head in a good company went surprisingly well together.
(I also felt damn lucky that not even a single clown crossed my path, you can't even begin to imagine the terror in my eyes if one of those red-nosed monsters would approach me..)
These are my dear siblings (one brother is missing here), and I kind of wish I had won those cute brown eyes in the gene lottery too!
The pictures aren't too great due to my little camera's capacity and the amount of natural light (and the lack of concentration, thanks so much red wine), but I wanted to share a glimpse of the enchanting ambiance in the park. :) I hope you enjoyed these pics, by now all those lights have shut down for their winter sleep.
