Last Saturday it was Sakura – Körsbärsblommans dag – blooming cherry blossom trees in Kungsträdgården, Stockholm. It was very beautiful and I enjoyed this event where many people gathered. Here are some photos from that day.
About a year ago I started to get interested in streetphotopgrahy and documentary photography. Recently I bought the book Streetphotography (Bättre bilder/ Streetfoto) by Eric Kim and it is just great – it gives you lots of advice about what to think about while taking streetphotos. This is a selection of photos in bw from my trip to New York. Above: Central Station

Recently I made a trip to Stockholm (Sweden). It was a warm and sunny day that I enjoyed very much.
I took so many photo’s that I decided im gonna do more than one post about the city. So this first one is about the Old Town (Gamla stan) – the old part of Stockholm.
Although – I started with a stop at the amazing St Clara church (photo above) which is not a part of the Old town. It’s a very nice old church and worth a visit.
It’s located in the centre of the city – very close to Drottninggatan and Sergels torg. A choir held a concert in the meantime I was there, fantastic voices and beautiful
with all the candles.
This is taken from a bridge before you enter Rosenbad and Gamla stan. You can see the Royal Opera in the middle of
