At the Dalarö square, next to the fruit stand you will find this artwork. It's the symbol of the seaside resort Dalarö. Called Krabbstenen. Made by the artist Bo Tilliander. A "crab stone" was used as an anchor, and as a fishing tool used to secure the lobster trap with.

We were both on our bikes heading for Västerhaninge when I caught up with Leffe, or Linkan as he is called. I noticed his tattoos (hard not to), and we started to talk while still on the bikes. I suggested that we would stop for a chat and we did. Leffe lives in Sorunda and is a fitness freak. He is an old marathon runner, but a neck injury prevents him from running, so these days he gets his exercise from long bike rides or from exploring caves. He is also a tattoo addict. I got my first tattoo 40 years ago and usually adds one per year he told me. Check out the cool tattoos on his legs. Leffe owns a Harley Davidson and is a member of the same motorcycle club as Gizzen who he knows. And he is the second stranger to tell me some really scary stories about Micke and his driving. And he promised to visit both Café Grindsjön and the Find the Flow Café, so it will not be to long before all my strangers know each other!

I was having lunch at Årsta Brygga today when Sune Nilsson and one of his crime fighting buddy's showed up for an ice cream. They are always out patrolling the streets, looking to prevent crime. They hadn't spotted any bad guys today. I suggested that the criminals were on holiday.

On Saturday I visited the National Croquet Championships that took place at Torvalla in Handen over the weekend, and went looking for some fun strangers, and I found them. This is Berit and Christer Nelson. Two of the members of the Sphaera Croquet Club that hosted the event. The club is only three years old. It started when one of the members, Thomas Norberg turned 40 and was given the croquet club as a birthday gift! They set up a few goals. To host the nationals and win a medal within a couple of years. The first goal has now been achieved. Unfortunately the Nelsons will not win a medal this year as both of them had been knocked out when I met them (Berit lost to the reigning champion). So we sat down in the shade for a chat and a hot dog. Some facts about this couple. Been together for 30 years. Married for 24 years. Four kids. And a few grand kids. They enjoy travelling. Tested bungy jumping at Skara, and hot air ballooning over Stockholm. This year they visited Sweden Rock Festival and listened to Poison, Whitesnake, Saxon and Judas Priest, so now you know what type of music they like. As does one of their daughters who plays in a local band. They told me that there was a banquet at Najaden Saturday night, and that the doubles tournament was to be played today. I haven't seen any results yet but will add some info here later.

The S/V Ariel on the Hårsfjärden bay. The ship was built in Norway in 1917 and used as a fishing boat. During WV II it came under attack from German aircraft. Later the ship was used by smugglers and it was during that period that it sunk off the Norwegian coast in the 1970ths. Some time later two brothers, called Jernelius salvaged the ship and in 1984 the Haninge municipality bought the Ariel, which has been used as a training ship ever since.

This is Leah Trolin Petrén. I met her at Dalarö after taking a photo of her father Prince Mikael. Leah's mother is the famous belly dancer Suzanne Petrén Abou Shebika, and you can see a painting of her and read an interesting story about Suzanne that Leah told me, here. Leah spent a few years of her childhood in Cairo when her mother was working there. Now she lives in Stockholm and works at the EKC dance school. Leah told me that they have 600 students and that it is the biggest belly dancing school in Europe. She recently came back from a visit to Egypt where she normally spends a couple of month every year. To get away from her normal life in Sweden, she took a year off and spent that time in Dublin. I worked as a waitress from 3 pm to 10 pm and after that I went clubbing. I soon started to hang out with artists, actors and deejays and realised that that was my kind of people she told me. Here's where the story gets a bit odd. Leah tells me that she has family in Tungelsta (where I live), oh I say, who would that be? Her name is June says Leah. Not June Hägg by any chance I ask? Yes! How did you know that? Well because June is married to my cousin Rolf I tell her. We are both a bit surprised and start laughing as we realise that we are family! So the family tree looks like this. June's brother Dan, in Leah's grandfather. June's husband Rolf Hägg is one of my cousins on my mothers side of the family. How about that!

This is Jutholmen. One of the smallest islands if not the smallest in Sweden. But statisticly one of the most densely populated. A must visit for every Islomaniac. Jutholmen is situated at Dalarö, a seaside resort in the Haninge archipelago. I know that there are a few sunken ships near here, so it's popular with divers. A few known historical facts. Five hundred years ago the first maritime pilots at Dalarö used to live here. There was an Inn here 200 years ago. In 1862 a British vessel, the Trafalgar run aground here. And in 1905 so did the German battle ships Kaiser Wilhelm, Kaiser Friedrich and Brandenburg. I'm guessing that the people that own property here use them as summer houses these days.

This is Mikael Trolin. But his friends call him The Prince. That's because he is a Prince. His dad is King of Kwande an emirate in Nigeria. His mother is an artist and this week Mikael is in charge of an art installation in the garden at Tullhuset in Dalarö and that's were I met him yesterday. Here is a photo from the installation with an interesting story. Mikael lives here at Dalarö. He is a musician and has released a few songs. Off and on he works as a music teacher. Mikael has four kids. He is also a politician in the Stockholm county council. He is a member of the Liberal Party. If you understand Swedish you can read The Prince's blog here.

The construction of this bridge was finished some time ago. It's part of the new national Road 73 that will now be a motorway also between Västerhaninge and Nynäshamn. Hopefully the new route will be known under a different name than the existing one "Road of Death". It still looks a bit surreal as there are no roads leading up to the bridge just yet. The gravel road I took is very old, and if you know your way around, it will take you all the way from Karlsro in Tungelsta to the Häringe peninsula and the best part is that hardly any cars ever use this old road.

This is the Tungelsta Station House, along the Nynäsbanan railway line. It's been there since 1901. The architect was the famous Ferdinand Boberg. Back then the trip from Nynäshamn to Stockholm took two hours. These days it takes one hour. Today there's a handicraft boutique here, but the old train dispatcher still lives on the second floor. The wooden panelling was called Fiskfjäll.

This Remington typewriter belonged to the famous author Moa Martinson (1890-1964). She lived at Johannesdal in Ösmo and started writing at the age of twelve. Her first published novel was Women and Appletrees. Today you can see the typewriter and other personal items at the Café Grindsjön which is run by the authors great granddaughter Annika. And remember to get something to eat and drink while you are there!

Parking the bike outside my local grocery store, I see a cool car and it's owner, who I ask to participate in the 100 Strangers Project. This is Anna. Born and raised in Sorunda where she still lives today. She is a single mother with two kids, Edwin who I met, and the teenager Oscar. Anna works as a nurse at a nursing home. Her big hobby is cars and anything to do with the 1950ths. She owns a 1930 Ford Tudor and a 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood. The Ford is worth around 150 000 SEK. She will never sell the cars and when she dies Edwin will get the Ford and Oscar the Cadillac. As we talk I realise that I have a photo of her Hot Rod that I took some time ago. Anna is one of four members of a Wishbone club. Her big tattoo symbolises Hawaii, a place she would like to visit one day. I mentioned that one of my previous strangers comes from Sorunda and drives a black Amazon, that must be Micke she says, that guy is crazy the way he drives around in that car :-). Then I tell her about Annika, the great granddaughter of the author Moa Martinson, that I met last week, and Anna remembers seeing Moa at her school a few times when she was a kid. The author (wearing very bright red lip stick) was probably there to pick up one of her grand children. I like it how all my strangers seems to have a connection to each other!

I took a walk around Stegsholm at the Gålö peninsula a few days ago. Half way round the 2,3 km path I met a photographer who I started to talk to. His name is Hans. A dentist from Saltsjöbaden. He shoots film. Whether in Rome or on the Swedish island Gotland or when trekking at Høvringen in Norway. We talked about photography and I then made a joke relating to an ad campaign which reminded Hans about a few (non-paying) photo gigs. A few years ago the coffee company Gevalia ran a lengthy and price-winning ad campaign called "when you have unexpected visitors" which was made by Ivar Klaesson, a friend of Hans. They were out scouting for locations and photo opportunities together. Another time he took a ferry to Åland and shot some photos on the boat that ended up in a campaign for the ferry company. Recently he visited a candy factory with a journalist friend, Cristina Aasa who was writing an article and Hans helped out by taking the the photos, but then I used a digital camera he told me. And he always gets a good deal on anything printed as one of hos patients are Håkan Holmberg, CEO of Crimson Photolab. Sounds like a friend I would like to have!

A Seastar, a Finnish made motor boat, on the bay at Höggarn. It was very warm and sunny day on Saturday when I spent a few hours at the Sandemar nature reserve. This is shot from the cliffs from were you have a great view towards Dalarö skans (an old sconce). I met a man who was out fishing, and talked a bit with him and his wife.

This is Stegsholm. Today a a farm and a treatment centre for boys with addiction problems. Back in 1860 Prince Carl, who later became King Charles XV, bought Stegsholm and turned it into an education centre for poor and orphaned kids. An even earlier owner, Wilhelm Hellgren was responsible for turning the then island to the peninsula it is today. The whole peninsula is today a nature reserve and I took a walk around the footpath which starts here at a café close to the farm buildings.

A sail boat on the bay close to Höggarn (a nature reserve), in Sandemar. In the background, and just south of Dalarö you can see the old stone sconce, Dalarö Skans. The fortification was built back in 1656 when Karl X Gustaf was king. The military left the island in 1854. Today you can visit the Inn for a meal and listen to some live music and watch the boats sail by. I walked out to the cliffs and stayed for about one hour shooting boats and talking to a couple that I met.

This is Anne Sundell. I ran into her at Gålö yesterday on my way to Sandemar. She was heading for Gålö, to visit a friend who lives on the peninsula. I asked if I could take a photo and she was all smiles. As we started to talk I realised that I knew who she was. Anne used to compete in modern pentathlon. And is a former World Champion! I remember seeing her on TV and reading about her in the sport pages. Anne grew up in Lida, not far from where I live. We went to the same school in Jordbro for three years, but not at the same time. After retiring from the pentathlon she has been into triathlon for the last thirteen years. And is a member of the Spif Triathlon club in Stockholm. Her next race will be the triathlon sprint (Swimming: 750 m, Cycling: 20 km, Running: 5 km), at Kalmar in a few weeks time. These days she lives in Handen. Professionally she works as a police officer and has competed in the World Police & Fire Games and won a total of six medals. I'm guessing she is the fittest of all my strangers!

This is Annika who I met yesterday. Since April she runs the Café Grindsjön, close to Sorunda in Nynäshamn. It's very popular with bikers and cyclists. I took her photo for the 100 Strangers project and enjoyed a sandwich while talking to her. Two guests arrived on their horses and when they rode off I had to take a photo of that. Inside the cafe you can look at art and have a look at an old typewriter that once belonged to Annika's great grandmother the famous author Moa Martinson.

700 years ago this was the Hammersta Castle. Built by Erengisle Nilsson who's father was married to a sister of Bridget of Sweden. Back then this was a two-story castle with a protective retractable staircase. Erengisle's son (with the same name), was married to a Danish woman, Brita Olofsdotter Tott, and when the situation between Sweden and Denmark became tense around 1450, Tott was sentenced to death for spying for the Danes. Luckily for Brita she was pardoned and later paid for the famous fresco paintings that you can now see at the Ösmo Church. The castle was abandoned during the 15th century.

Häringe Castle seen from behind the Rotunda where a theatre group are playing Hamlet, hence the Dannebrog flag. On the veranda hotel guests and visitors having a cup of coffee or a meal. The castle was built in 1654 by Gustav Horn, the Count of Pori. Back then it had a third floor that was later destroyed in a fire. Häringe goes back to the Viking era when a famous Viking name Sote lived here. Other famous owners include Magnus Ladulås, Sten Sture, Gustav Vasa, Gustav II Adolf and Torsten Kreuger.More photos in my Häringe-Hammersta Set.

Trying my best to look cool at the 1000 year old Ådala Runestone at Hammersta in Nynäshamn. The runic inscription, translated reads something like Bjarne and Ger had the stone raised after Näsbjörn his father...the brother of Gudfinn.
This stone was damaged back in 1939 when it was found upside down on a field. The area was being developed, and as no one knew that the big rock was a runestone, they used explosives so that it could be removed from the field. There is an old ruin nearby which was the reason I visited Hammersta today, I will tell you a little about that tomorrow.

After my photo shoot in the orchard I headed towards the pond but had to turn back as I all of a sudden heard a flute and then a woman started singing. I walked over to see what was going on. It turned out to be Carina and Åsa. I asked if I could take a photo, they said yes, and I started to shoot while listening to them as they played a song by Evert Taube. Then we started to talk a little. Carina who is from Fruängen works as a music teacher in Tyresö, and is a member of the musical ensemble Raka Rör. For Åsa, who comes from Järfälla, music is a passion. Funnily enough they met for the first time today! They were rehearsing for a wedding ceremony that would take place later this afternoon here in the orchard. It's a very private affair they told me. It will only be the two of us and the bride and groom who are from the northern city of Umeå. We will play a few songs, like the one you just heard by Taube and also Last Spring by Edward Grieg and a few others. After that I said goodbye to the ladies and walked away to the sound of music.

In the 400 year old orchard at the Häringe Castle there are many odd looking sculptures to look at. This one seems to be holding the castle in her hand. More photos in my Häringe-Hammersta Set.

Yesterday I took the bike down to a peninsula in the south of Haninge. And visited Häringe. It's an old castle built back in 1654 by Gustav Horn, the Count of Pori. I will show you a few more photos next week, this is one of several big sculptures that you will find in the big and very green garden.

I met him as I sat down on a bench close to the library in Västerhaninge. He was busy sawing, chiseling and drilling. He is an artist. A sculptor who lives in Hässelby. Lennart often works with wood or bronze. These two circular tree benches is his own design. He calls it Rondo. Over the years he has done a lot of public work around the country. He is represented in Stockholm as well as here in Haninge at the Runstensskolan (a school in Handen). He told me about his latest project. A bronze work of the castle Nyköpingshus in the model scale of 1: 300. When it is finished it will be placed at the castle. Lennart is well-educated, he has a degree in Geology and in Botany from the Stockholm University. And he spent some time at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, where he now gives lectures every now and then. On his free time he often works on his boat, a yacht from 1896 that he has owned for 40 years. I mentioned that I met another artist, Klara Kristalova recently, and he said that he knew her and also Anders Olsson from the Kyrkskolan Gallery. At this point he told me that he would have to finish for the day as the library closed, and they would pull the electricity cable he used for the drill.

For the second time in just a month, the artwork Touched By Flowers made by the artist Klara Kristalova has been vandalized. This time it will be harder to repair and in the end it will probably be moved from it's position in the Tungelsta park to a new museum (where no one will see it), as the Municipality Haninge Kommun don't want to pay for any more repairs. If you are interested you can see my previous photos regarding this here.

At the ancient grave field I see two beautiful redheads approaching. I say hello and ask if I can take a photo. This is Linda and Evelina. They are sisters. Linda (to the left) lives in Haninge and her younger sister Evelina is visiting from Borås. Linda has done a few photography gigs. Her boyfriend works as a clothes designer for Blue Fox , the biggest punk and hard rock boutique in the country, and she has done some fashion shoots for them. And she has won a few internet photography competitions. Evelina who will be a ninth grader come the fall, is into acting. She has been in a local group for a few years now. Their next play will be A Christmas Carol by Dickens. I take a few shots and they tell me that as it's Sunday they are not really dressed in their normal fashion, we look way cooler in the week days. Both girls are at Bilddagboken, a Swedish photo community. Here is a link to Evelina's site. And here's Linda's site. We talk a little more and they we say goodbye.

I visited Årsta Castle yesterday. It's situated close to the sea, just a kilometre from my favorite beach. Over the summer there's a play here. Not Shakespeare as they do at Häringe Castle a few klicks from here, but Åsa-Nisse the mjosikal (yes' that's how it's spelled). If you don't know Åsa-Nisse check out the wikipedia article. The play also have a website. If you are interested the ticket is 275 SEK. The premiere is tonight.

Theme Day. The NO sign.
I decided to go for a collage. I have quite a few of these signs, in fact I collect them. I am addicted to the Squared Circle syndrome. Which came in very handy today!
Here we go, NO to the following: Cars and Motorcycles. People. Matches. Smoking. Fire. Mopeds. Trucks. Dogs. And finally Shopping. And that's my favorite sign, as I really don't like that pastime.
