Be kind...

Be kind...
... we don't have all the time in the world. Street art at Årstaviken in Stockholm. Made by Klisterpeter, also known as Rådjursmannen. Real name Peter Baranowski. He is known as the "nice" street artist. He started his street art career when he was still an art student 15 years ago. Anyone who has ever visited Stockholm has probably seen his roe deer faces on the backside of traffic signs. He is also known for his nest boxes.

Burnt Out Car

Burnt Out Car
One of my favorite songs. Burnt Out Car with Saint Etienne works well here. As seen at the parking lot at the medieval church in Österhaninge a couple of days ago.

Mariona II

Mariona II
Designed by Stig Tiedemann. Built by Henry Linussons Båtbyggeri at Östhammars varv in 1963. Running on double Ford engines. Today owned by Leif Selberg & Inger Bodin. Spotted while out photographing at Årstaviken in Stockholm. I emailed a copy of the photo to the owner and he said that it was the best photo he had seen of the boat in action. He also told me that he might sell the boat later this year.

Like a summer day

Pink Bikini Jeansshorts Guy Enjoying the weather Hot enough for a swim
There are a few small beaches along the Årstaviken promenade near Tantolunden. As well as piers and marinas that the sunbathers can use. And here are four photos to prove that statement.

Årstaviken Promenade

Drakenbergsparken Yoga Class Picnic Diary keeper Flanörer
The Årstaviken bay promenade is by far the most popular in Stockholm. That wasn't always the case, but it is today. It is a 7.5 km walk, and the part that I like the most is around Tantolunden where there are always a lot of people out and about.

Playing in the rain

Playing in the rain
This is a big mural. 26 meters high and 15 meters wide. Made by Graffitisthlm artists Klive och Klive. You can find it at the Clarion Hotel at Skanstull, Södermalm in Stockholm, it is hard to miss. I shot it as a panorama, it is 18 images stitched together. Photographed last week on a warm and sunny day when I decided to jump on the bike and peddle towards Stockholm for a change.

The first sunbathers

The first sunbathers
Four girls sunbathing at the beach at Nickstabadet in Nyäshamn. I arrived at the beach after a 30km bike ride on what was a really fine May day. It was the same day as I took all the photos of cyclists. After snapping this I rode down to the dive tower where there is a big bench, it was a bit too crowded so I sat down nearby and ate a light lunch. No one was swimming in the sea but I noticed a few people out in a dingy. After enjoying the sunshine for a while while reloading my batteries I continued my bike ride down to the harbor, I showed you those photos two days ago.

The guest harbor

A few street photos from the guest harbor in Nynäshamn. People queuing for an ice-cream, enjoying lunch, waiting for a ferry, or just enjoying the Spring sunshine on what was a beautiful day. Snapped before heading home after a bike ride to the coastal city a few days ago.

Roundabout Dinosaur

Roundabout Dinosaur
This was a first. A Roundabout Dinosaur at Länna. Eating a flower. And behind it a "traditional" Roundabout dog, claiming to love Länna. Snapped two days ago, just before my second flat tire of the day. A lucky shot because they were both gone yesterday.

Thureholm Castle

Thureholms slott
Leaving the picturesque town of Trosa we stopped for a quick look and a photo of a castle. Seven hundred years ago there stood another castle here called Gäddeholm. In 1640 a new castle was built on the same spot. It didn't last very long as it was burned down during the Russian Pillage of 1719. Ten years after that the construction started of the current castle, Thureholm. Named after Thure Gabriel Bielke. Today the castle is owned by the Bonde family who also owns Hörningsholms castle.

My kind of people

My kind of people These guys again Stockholm City Triathlon Warm Day
Thursday was one of the warmest days of the year, so far. I decided to cycle down to Nynäshamn, which is a dream these days as there is no traffic to speak off on the old Nynäsvägen road. It is a 30 km ride through a rural landscape and it makes me happy every time I ride there. This time I decided to try and photograph every cyclist that I met. Turned out to be tricky as I also stopped to shoot other stuff and missed a few riders. Here are the first sixteen encounters in a collage, plus three more for good measure.Oh and I actually met two of the groups twice, some of these riders are very fast.

A picturescue town

Stadshotell Trosa Stadsbibliotek Trosa Ågården Tulips
After the visit to Tullgarn Palace we continued our Sörmland trip with a visit to the picturescue tourist attraction town that is Trosa, you can drive here from Stockholm in one hour. Nicknamed Världens ände, the world's end! It is an old city, it dates back 800 years. It is close to the coast and back in the day most people that lived here made their earnings from fishing. It is easy to get lost here for a few hours walking up and down the old streets. These photos shows the hotel, the library and a few traditional houses. I will show you the "real" Trosa attraction after the weekend.
