I worked again for Marathonfoto last weekend, covering the Helsinki city run. The event started and finished from the 1952 Olympic Stadium and although the weather conditions were poor for photography - heavy rain - I also undertook PR / public relations photography before the race for the organisers. Later I moved positions and was located on the finish-line for the athletes coming in.
Here are some photographs from around the city when it stopped raining for a few minutes. Interesting place to visit but like everywhere else in Scandinavia very expensive.
