Tallinn brightens the snow

Tallinn hosts its first light festival on this end of November. After Riga my favourite city is getting more special for a short time and surprisingly it happened during the first snow of the year in Estonia.

End of autumn

I haven’t been posting for a long time, partly because of lack of time and mostly due to some technical reason which killed my motivation. The blog has been unreachable for few months acting slower and slower without me able to make change. Google almost completely kicked me from his index… Since I manage to fix it and plan to write more often. I will probably post something later on my semester that was interesting in some point :)

The two last days of November have seen the snow landing on the Estonian ground. If it is not enough quantity and cold to make it stays, we could have a christmas-like feeling already in the Old Town.

During the same week Tallinn has opened its fairytale’s Christmas market and a newly light festival. They are, with the snow, the three element that has completely changed the atmosphere of the city. It became a pleasure to walk in the streets by -2°C.

Biennale festival in Tallinn

Decided to spend an evening of catching  night Tallinn photos, I was joined by one friend to who I gave a tripod to practice a bit with me. We had long walk in the city centre and I got a little frozen by not moving a lot. I recently built my own camera remote expecting to pass over the 10 seconds delay before the shutter of the camera. Unlikely I did it wrong and the device wasn’t working every time, instead of gaining time I lost it.

Over and above the common places that are Toompea and Raekoja plats were the spots chosen for the Biennale light festival! I heard nothing about before this weekend and discovered in live some of the performances, the one in Viru than reminded me Staro Riga (probably the same artist) and a larger video on the Wabadus building on the Freedom square.
