Shiny metal balls in Helsinki

Quite a few* of these reflective spheres are scattered around the Hietalahti area in Helsinki as part of an outdoor “sculpture” called Olo No. 22. They are a popular subject for photography, but it's surprisingly hard to get a good shot, especially if one doesn't want to show up in the reflection too obviously.

  

* Some sources say there are over 50 spheres total. Would be interesting to try and locate all of them, as I think I've only seen a dozen or so…
