Theme day: City exchange

This month the theme day was a bit odd: to post a photo of a city other than mine. The idea was not to post a photo of my last vacation in Venice of Mumbay(!), but to show something in my city that could make the visitors think they are on the wrong blog!

Sorry, this is the best I could come up with. This Helsingin Pantti branch is located in Tikkurila, Vantaa. It is a pawnshop and it seems there have branches in Helsinki too. I like the colours in this shot. So bright and vibrant, it was taken on a clear sunny day.

Yes, this was a very difficult theme. I wonder if all countries have pawn shops?
