I'd surely say "What ever will come of boys who play with guns!" - if I had not done it myself as a kid.

I like the image because it reminds me of being a boy. Not just because of the guns or the boys, but because of the place: this is how it used to be. I took this picture in the middle of Helsinki, and, as you may guess, there are not too many streets like this left.

Yes, I also played with toy guns when I was a kid, and learned to hate the real guns.

But merely I wonder where in the middle of Helsinki you find a street like tthis? =O

Sami, I just put it on the map. It was shot in the same neighbourhood as Jarva's film The Man Who Could Not Say No.

sad to hear the city is changing.
(I've never been unfortunately)
the same is happening here in nyc at an alarming rate.
they kill what makes a city unique.
everywhere you go now there's a starbuck's or gap.
I hate it.

I was just talking with my wife about how I am so conflicted about the new digitized world we now live in and that my son will never have known a world without Internet and phones that you can watch television on. The only common denominator is that he watches the same cartoons that I did as a boy, because Donald Duck is just as funny now as he was back when I was a boy. But, yeah, me and my brothers and friends would all play with cap pistols all day long when we were boys, Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians.

My words exaxtly, Rob. My son's world is so different from mine at his age that I find it increasingly difficult to figure out what is good for him, what is not. Take reading, for example: would I have read a single book as a kid if I'd had all these bells and whistles available that he now has? What if he gets much more out of computer games than I ever got from books?

o0o I like this street also ... it reminds me of being in Bergen for the first time in Norway
and walking away from tourist places ... it was full of charm that seemed to have not
changed ... a step back in time indeed ... it's why I like your picture ;-) oOo

Bergen is the only place in Norway which I know quite well, so I know what you mean. The sloped terrain may have helped Bergen to preserve much more of the old buildings than Helsinki: today everything needs to be big, and it is hard to build anything big on the slopes of those fjords. :)

I went up the funicular to the top to take in the view ... on the way down again is when
I walked through little backstreets and met some wonderful people ... and saw the
smallest house ;-) have you seen it ? it was painted a pale yellow colour ... I always
remember this little house.

This is the strongest image on your front page. I love it! Great lighting, lovely muted treatment, great subject. My first favourite of 2015.

Than you very much, David. Clearly you should browse ipernity more often than once a month! :)

I can imagine that it felt like going back in time, the kind of views that can make you smile.
