Currently spending 6 days in Riga, Latvia on a work related trip. I've managed to have a couple of hours during the evenings and last sunday to walk around and snap a few photos.

Thought I'd share some here. It's a beautiful city, though it's been quite rainy. Pretty much raining every day at least some part of the day. You can also see that it's a very poor nation still, but development is starting to catch on. European economy is having a major impact also and there's a lot of people in hardship. People walk up to me on daily bases to ask for money, though I'm hardly a wealthy looking type. Hope this nation will prevail as the economy starts to pick up.

Anyway, here are some images.

Very nice, Juha! Lovely photos of daily life in a pretty city. You can tell autumn is in motion.

A friend of mine was there recently over the summer. I haven't been yet myself, but would love to visit some day.

Very nice series of shots. One of the things I really love about the major Baltic cities is that they are all so different from one another. The thing I remember most from Riga is the mix of the very old with the modern, something you captured quite well.
