Playing the flute, at sunrise...
Rayyan i might have to tour a bit of Scandinavia for work, soon. SO i'll welcome any tips about Stokholm you'd be willing to share , esp. hotels (Miss John Sommer? ), it'll be appreciated
Last time i went was youth hostels and such... long time ago.
Sometimes one fails to notice simple things; they exist beautifully but generally
they get ignored.
Something on my hotel window sill in Stockholm....
More Cast Iron Maidens at the Pike Place Market. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

We walked a lot, like always. Ayesha would wait at a coffee shop till I caught up
with her..panting and puffing!
It reminded me of someone who said that there was no such thing as good light or bad light. There just was light! I found that truth in Stockholm..
A simple restaurant window...
Looking up at the trees at around 1930 hrs ( the clock ! )
It was a carnival of sunlight and wonderful ( for us ) color.
Thanks guys Nothing special afa photography is concerned, but the sculpture looked cool.
Matt, IQ is over the roof esp in #1 and #2. Impressive (seriously).
Love the composition, too -and i admit being partial to this kind of framing. Associated to the spot on B&W treatment (anything special?), #2 takes me somewhere. There's an "old Paris" quality to it (in a good way).
The others are MD classics
Rayyan, the two "glasses" shots inside the hotel are very intimate. light in the trees is awesome. You really captured this special northern light, inside and outside...
I don't care what gear I have.

Here's two others with different "tones". Stylin' shoes. The sole flops in one of them.
Thanks a lot guys.
I found that broken windows too had a color, a charm that I found bewitching.
An un- retouched photo ( resized only ).
I love the colors of Stockholm.
I just came in from the post office bringing my "new" Fuji S5 Pro - thanks Paul!
This one has had the AA-filter removed and I´m looking very much forward to seeing the effects on image resolution. Here´s the first shot - of my daughter enjoying Nordic summer (also knowing her dad brought strawberries). The old 3,5/55 Micro-Nikkor assisted.

Let's just walk, I said. Where are we going? she asked.
Nowhere and everywhere. Wherever the roads and alleys lead us. take it easy.
Where shall we have lunch?
Anywhere we feel like stopping, I said.
Stockholm is land and water. So we must take to the water too!
I sleep early. Get up before dawn. Walk the streets, see the sunrise. These two cafes would open early. 5 minutes stroll from my hotel. very near to the Nobel Museum.
I would have have breakfast here. Always found the cafes busy. Nice owners.
Excellent food. Lovely service. BIG coffee mugs.
Somewhere between Raw Corn and the Cast Iron Maidens. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

Matt, your people shots are as masterful as your regulars.
act of sitting down, talking and the surrounds. Normal. beautiful.
The second capture is captivating. I can think of many things. Let's just enjoy the capture.
The mature couple relaxing by the promenade on a bench. Just what my wife and I would do. Lovely.
Excellent Seattle photography Matt.
