Original idea was to shoot some warships that were staying in Turku for the weekend, I thought I go to a different location to take some picturtes but that place was temporarily declared as military area.

While cycling to the location I had in mind I found a huge metal sphere that had some interesting details. No idea what it is.

Edit: I just found out that it's an old gas storage ball
heres a link to pictures from google

In the photos it looks more like a cylinder than a sphere. Interesting "industrial bleak" pictures. Communicate the idea of man-made but extremely inhuman and foreboding.
