After I had spent a few days in Helsinki, I decided to take the ferry over to the Fortress of Suomenlinna. It's a UNESCO world heritage site. My "bucket list" includes visiting as many of them as I can.
So, I got off the ferry and started to walk in to see the sights on the island. The main attraction was supposed to me the military architecture. But, I found myself totally smitten with the vintage houses. Charming.
|Metal roof. The front doors are spectacular. And the trim around the windows. And the yellow paint.|
Check out the details on the barge board and also the diamond design where the porch roof meets the wall. The windows are great too.
|That top little window. The front doors, All of the trim. And, of course, the stair rails.|
|Pink and white. And those wonderful stair rails.|
|Also, check out the gray paint. Look familiar?|
|Look at the topc of the gutters on this one. And the window trim.|
|Oh yea, and there is a fort there too :)|
|More details. More shades of yellow.|
|Lace curtains Storms that swing out with interior windows swing in. Figurines in the top part of window.|
