Old train

This train stands on the yard of an old railway station in Tuuri, Töysä. You can actually spend a night in the carriage. As you can see, this photo is purpose. I think it came out kind of neat.

Alvar Aalto Lamps

These are some lamps in the yard of Lakeuden Risti church. This is architecture by famous finnish Alvar Aalto. There is a full center of buildings designed by him. All of them are located on a small area and that is why it is called the Alvar Aalto Center. There is a church, library, town hall, theater and a government office building.

Keskinen residence

I guess nowadays almost everyone in Finland knows Tuuri and the "Biggest Village Shop in Finland" Veljekset Keskinen. Veljekset Keskinen is a large department store in the town of Töysä. The area where it is located is Tuuri. The shop has it's own reality television series and the owner Vesa Keskinen is a celebrity. The shop uses the term "miljoona", "million" in different events like the Miljoona Rock (rock festival), Miljoona Tivoli (funfair), Miss Miljoona (Beauty contest), Miljoona Pilkki (fishing contest) etc... This is the residence of the owner mr. Vesa Keskinen.

Lake in the evening

 This is again from kyrkösjärvi. At last I had some time to go out with the camera at sunset. Red sunset sky and calm water make a nice mix. Now we have some colors :-)

Gun powder laboratory

Here is another well. The house behind it is one of the buildings in the Törnävä museum area. It is said to be a "propeeri, proberingshus", gun powder laboratory.  It was built in 1829.

Blue lake

This is taken from the top of "Kyrkösvuori". There we have a bird watching tower or an observation tower, whatever we would like to call it. This solid rock can be seen on the left side of this photo I've posted earlier. The sun was shining and the sky wasl blue. This is how I saw it.

Gravel truck

Yesterday I posted a "classic" gasoline truck. Well here we have a modern gravel truck. There were a few of these parked side by side near Routakallio, a gravel quarry. By the way, Routakallio should become a significant recreation area after the quarry finishes in a few years.

Oldish truck - Kesoil

Kesoil is a gas station brand that hasn't existed for at least 15 years. I'm not sure, but i think this elderly  truck serves as a gasoline tank for machines of the quarry behind it.

Torikeskus - shopping center

First indoor HDR for me. This is from Torikeskus shopping center located in the center of Seinäjoki. Someone may notice the difference in the aspect ratio compared to the earlier pictures. That's because of a different camera. This one was shot with Olympus Pen.

This cowshed was built in 1856 by Gustaf August Wasastjerna. It had room for 100 cows. Later it has been a cement foundry and a paint factory, horse hospital and an arms cache. It has served as a museum now for 50 years. The latest renovation was done in 2010.
