Angry swans and crazy laughing gulls

I was walking around Seurasaari again today since the weather was so great. The mute swans almost ate me alive when I went too close to the water. The one in the first photo came straight at me and looked almost like it could bite me if I had stayed there. On the way home I stopped in Keilaniemi to photograph some buildings and then took a shot of some graffiti in Tontunmäki after getting the groceries. The day turned out to be very productive photography-wise. So a lot of pictures today. I hope you have the patience to look trough them all!
