2018-09-14   RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2018-09-09T10:38:04+00:00 September 13th, 2018|Stockholm|

How do people live away from the tourist paths? The photo shows a residential district in Stockholm, fewer tourists more Swedish people. A traditional area with 3-4 level houses, streets with parking lots, cross-walks and a man in a hurry and a young mother with her child.

2018-09-04   ON THE WAY TO SCANDINAVIA

By | 2018-09-02T14:37:16+00:00 September 3rd, 2018|Stockholm|

Stockholm has deep waters which reach into the city; the cruiser was at anchor at a big concrete wall near a bridge and fabric buildings. It got prepared for a tour all around Scandinavia. I was a spectator only and thought about the effort of building such a large ship.

2018-08-28   WATERWAYS IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2018-08-26T18:37:54+00:00 August 27th, 2018|Stockholm|

It’s interesting how the waterways and canals integrate with Stockholm. In this city, you can feel the harmony between all kinds of traffic in the variety of cars, bikes, boats, buses, taxis, Uber and sometimes Segways. A broad Eldorado where you can choose from, which makes transport more fun.

2018-08-09   HOUSES OF STOCKHOLM

By | 2018-08-08T19:33:38+00:00 August 8th, 2018|Stockholm|

I took the opportunity of the bus stop at a red traffic signal to shoot a photo of the houses in Stockholm. At my three-days stay, I took a Redline-Bus for sightseeing. I am eager to get a place on the open roof where I have elbow room for handling my camera and lenses and be flexible enough to catch streets, people, and buildings. Mainly it’s also helpful to give your feet some rest from the hot pavements in the cities.

2018-03-23   STOCKHOLM IN THE EVENING

By | 2018-03-22T21:57:37+00:00 March 23rd, 2018|Stockholm|

On my way back to the hotel I saw that atmospheric scene of the illuminated buildings and the boats which were lying on the silent water. I took my camera out of the photo bag for one of my last shots of the day. Since it got a bit cold already, my wife forced me to speed up with the photo session.  🙂

2018-02-06   LOUNGE IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2018-02-05T20:30:49+00:00 February 6th, 2018|Stockholm|

This lounge in Stockholm, near the Vasa museum, paired with the sunny weather,  gave you the feeling of a Mediterranean party. You got cold drinks, watched at a lake and listened to chilling music. I walked around with my camera and was eager to catch the best scenes of that atmosphere.

2017-11-20  CYCLIST IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-11-19T20:55:01+00:00 November 20th, 2017|Stockholm|

Bicycles are high-ranking in the Northern European capitals like Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Oslo or here in Stockholm. Although I didn’t rent a bike, I was busy taking photos. There I noticed some harmony between the means of transportation. In Vienna, there is always a feud between cars and bicycles.  😕

2017-10-26  LONG STAIRS IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-10-25T18:19:51+00:00 October 26th, 2017|Stockholm|

The ideal stairs for Runtastic-users, bringing your fitness level on a higher plateau with stair climbing. 😎   I am more the guy for weight training, but often take my Nordic-Walking sticks for weekend tours with my wife. In Stockholm, I hadn’t my sticks with me. So I left the stairs for photo shooting only. 🙂

2017-09-23  SHIP IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-09-23T11:51:29+00:00 September 23rd, 2017|Stockholm|

Parts of the sea and canals are very well integrated into Stockholm. The Stockholm Pass had a cruising session combined, I attended and was soon on an excursion boat. For taking photos, I had to go outside, on the back deck, because I wanted to prevent to shoot through dirty windows. In the back, space was limited, because the whole crowd wanted to take photos, mostly with smartphones. I had to stand up from time to time, to occupy the space I needed for taking the pictures I want. 🙂

2017-09-20  GRAND HOTEL STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-09-06T16:24:27+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Stockholm|

Tonight we sleep on silken sheets
We drink fine wine and eat rare meats
On Carousel and gambling stake
Our fortunes speed, and dissipate
It’s candlelight and chandelier
It’s silver plate and crystal clear
The nights we stay at Hotel Grand  ➡ song text “Grand Hotel” by Procol Harum

For me it was only a visit at the bar  :-),  I did the photos a bit undercover, photographing at that location is not welcomed. Grand Hotel Stockholm has it all, butlers and concierges in uniform, waiters and bar tenders with a suit, bow tie, and tidy haircuts.
