Summer Evening Fun

Summer Evening Fun
I was sitting on the veranda after dinner when I heard a motor up in the sky. It was a powered paraglider out on an evening flight.

Crooked Nose

Crooked Nose
I noticed that someone had put a crooked nose on quite a few election posters in Tungelsta yesterday. The politician seen here is Sven Gustafsson from the Moderate party. I have met him a couple of times. Turns out that it is another politician that is responsible for this. Martin Hagwall who represents Alternativ För Sverige. He was confronted about this and responded that it was a certain type of people that looked like this. The Swedish general election is three weeks away now. goo.gl/bGn98N

A candid snap from the pier at the guest marina in Nynäshamn last week. The marina is a popular place for both locals and tourists/visitors. There are a couple of nice eateries, pubs, music scenes, kiosks and a good place for fresh fish, and while my travel buddies for the day queued for some tasty salmon I went for a photo promenade.

Two Dudes

Cool Daddy of the Day Plata Plomo
Two candid snaps from Poseidon's Square. Cool dad of the day on his inline skates, and heavily tattooed skateboarder. Plato Plomo translates to, Take the money or I will take your life, but you already knew that.

Babels Torn

Babels torn Ankaret
Very picturesque villa at Dalarö. I could move in tomorrow. It is called Babels torn. It is a four storey high building, although that is tricky to see from this angle. The house was built a century ago by Carl Carlsson who also built another house, (second photo), where he had a department store for many years, Carl Carlssons Diverseaffär. Today that building houses a popular eatery called Restaurang Ankaret. Facts provided by Lars Palmgren, via Sune Nilsson two members of the local historical society Haninge Hembygdsgille.

Jutholmen

Jutholmen
The view from Amerikaberget at Dalarö is a good one. You can see a lot of water, boats and ferries crossing the bay, and also this little islet, it is called Jutholmen. In total there are 19 building on the islet, and at least, (4), people live here year round.

Elskåp

Elskåp
I enjoy shooting utility boxes. Mostly they are the places where the local graffiti artist will leave a mark. Not so here just a stone's throw away from the church at Dalarö.

Kör För Livet

Kör För Livet
Nine traditional small horse-drawn carriages travelled from Nyköping to Haninge this week. I met up with them this afternoon near the Medieval church in Österhaninge. They were on their way to Tyresta National Park to take part in the annual "Nordsvenskens Dag", the North Swedish Horse Day. The reason for this ride, Kör För Livet was to collect money to the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund. Stefan and Kate Nilsson, that breed this particular horse, lost their son to cancer a few years ago. And for those of you that understands Swedish, and want to learn more, and perhaps donate some money, read more here. As per usual, if you can't see the slide show press here to open the album at flickr.
