Aiheita Photos is a photoblog mostly about different places.

The blog is not updated anymore. New photosets are published at the Albums section of my travel photos site. Single images are added to Picture by picture photo pages.

Lauttasaari water tower, Helsinki

The water tower of Lauttasaari island suburb in Helsinki had its 50-year birthday at spring, 2008. Therefore, it was open to public. I visited there too to take a look of the beautiful sceneries up there on the top.

Currently there is some discussion whether to tear down the tower or to renovate it to serve some other purpose as it is no longer used as a water tower.

Below you can see 17 pictures that I took on my visit to the tower.
