An Autumn Promenade

Autumn Green Umbrellas on the beach A Sign of Spring... The Hugly Fungi Yellow on Red
This is what I found in the forest yesterday. I decided to take a Thursday Walk, and picked the Rudan nature reserve for the promenade. The surprise of the day was the wood anemone, which is your typical Spring flower. The hugly fungi grew next to the anemone, which in turn grew next to the other fungi. I named that photo Umbrellas on the beach.

This was tricky. Been keeping my eyes open for a shelter for quite a while and this was as close, (or as far away), as I could come. A very old hut at Alby in rural Haninge. Theme Day at CDP.

Girl in a Blue Dress

Girl in a Blue Dress
We had a fantastic Autumn day yesterday. Warm and sunny from a clear blue sky. I decided that I should take at least one street portrait. This girl in her blue dress and knee-high black boots came walking towards me near the Haninge mall and I knew that I had to ask her for a photo. Her name is Zhan Xinhua. She comes from Jiangxi in China, but lives in Sweden since about three years. Xinhua works at one of the restaurants at the mall. So it's no surprise that one of her hobbies includes cooking. I'm guessing fashion is also important for her.

The colorful season is here. The days are still warm, at least if you stay in the sun, but Autumn has arrived to Haninge.

Super Blood Moon my ass

Super Blood Moon my ass
Well that wasn't much fun. I spent the last ninety minutes (from 4 o'clock in the morning), up on the hill here at Bergdalen in Tungelsta, in the dark, looking for that Super Blood Moon. I'm sure it was there but all I could see was clouds. So just before I walked back home i took this four-second exposure of the filling station. Back to sleep now I hope!

Hood Ornaments

Face Hood Ornament The Spirit of Ecstasy
Hood ornaments are fun to shoot. Here are a few that I photographed at the Classic Cars & Customs show. The Spirit of Ecstasy is probably the more expensive, but I like the other face more. Shot one with the silent zoom lens and the other with the pancake lens.

Miss Marla Kay

Pin-up Girl The pin-up girl
This is Miss Marla Kay. She is the real deal when it comes to pin-up girls, just look at that dress! Miss Marla Kay is also known as Malin Kölborn. She is part of a group called Swedish Top Pinups. They describe themselves as a group of lady bombshells based in Sweden. I will not disagree. I met Miss Marla Kay at the Classic cars & Customs event.

Fat Dream

Fat Dream
I visited the big Classic Cars & Customs at Sundby gård recently. The place was filled with cool cars and more. This is the latest project by Sven Sandberg from Tyresö. He has been designing Hot Rods and what have you for something like fifty years. This is called Fiat "Fat Dream" 1949 Topolino.

Museum of public objects

Crush Barrier
The artist Anna Ådahl have filled the square at Stora Arken in Handen with trees, benches, lamp posts, a litter bin and crush barrier seen here. The objects comes from all over Europe. One bench originates from the Beyoğlu Municipality in Turkey. Another comes from Russia and a third from Paris. There's a palm tree, a Norwegian spruce and one Japanese cherry tree. The lamp posts also originates from other countries. The installation is called Museum for public objects and it opened today. As the art curator Åsa Mårtensson told us about the project I sat down on the Turkish bench with a friend, and enjoyed a free French lunch from the Le truck food truck.
