I went on a night shoot with a buddy of mine and we passed (among others) by the Sibelius monument. It actually looks as interesting by night (if not more) as it does by day. It’s lit with a good number of strong, bright lights. My buddy came up with the idea to bring a couple of colored gels to put over the light sources. Not a bad idea. Not a bad idea at all! I will have to try that some time…
Jean Sibelius is one of Finland’s (and the world’s) most famous composers. He was the composer of (among many others) the Finnish national anthem.
I can write a whole lot about him that’s already written all over the place, so I’ll just stick to the images.
In the middle of Helsinki is the Sibelius monument. It looks like a bunch of organ pipes and when there’s a good wind you can actually hear some “music” when it’s blowing through the pipes.
