Fancy this, imagine this: painting the phenomenal world

I have still some photographs from Stockholm to be posted. In fact, I'm getting used to the look of photographs taken with the Nokia E7. Even though it really isn't a camera to enjoy using, in some situations it works well enough.

It is getting colder, and today while commuting home by bicycle, there were some snowflakes falling. It starts to be winter, but I haven't yet thought about installing the studded tires to the bicycle. Last year I did that in the middle of November.

But ponder instead relative truth and the warm

This photograph of bicycles was taken in Stockholm on September 21st. There were all kinds of things going on, to such a degree that the youngest daughter declared: "The Swedish are crazy."

And you’ve still got to get through this life

In Sweden near Stockholm there is an intense search for ‘foreign underwater activity’, whatever that means. A month ago the sea by Stockholm looked like this, the Gröna Lund amusement park is seen on the opposite shore. But maybe this time there is something less amusing going on.
