Photographer's Note

I took this photo on the same day we went to Estonia--the day of the raging blizzard (this is akin to my Estonian Nights series). I am supposed to meet my girlfriend in the Kauppahalli (market place hall) in ten minutes so we can rush over to the ferry terminal and the Etelaesplenadi (esplanade) is the only way I won't get lost on my way to the waterfront.

Etelaesplenadi is a long, tree lined path in the center of a two-way road. In the summer you will see musicians playing for change (I have a fond memory of being allowed a few strokes on one man's musical saw), vendors selling wool socks and other northern usuals, and a great crowd at the glass house cafe. On this day, however, most people were smart enough to be inside their homes, drinking gloggi, perhaps, looking out their windows at the foolish American boy freezing his fingers off so that he could remember this moment...

Contrast boost done in PS, otherwise no changes.
