Magic walk among old textile industries

A sunny day among old textile industries

Several times yearly I go to Norrköping for a walk in the magic landscape of old textile industries. There I find a mixture of old buildings, waterfalls and artistic galleries, museums and bars. A paradise if you love to take photos, many cool views there!

First photo is like a fairytale, roses in front of a building:

As my walk continues I find so much to watch and enjoy, small details and large views:

Another angle of this huge waterfall:

This small tree by the water was so beautiful and made such a great contrast to the grey wall:

A man was building a new walk path beside the old houses, I can’t wait to walk over there:

A really cool bar, unfortunately not open at the moment I passed:

I end up with a tower like building that are heading for the clouds:

Thanks for reading and watching my photos, I hope you enjoyed!

A day in the archipelago

Beautiful archipelago enviroment

Getting some time off on a warm summer day… What should I be doing?

I guess that you who has followed me for a while can take a guess. When I get time off I go outdoors, hiking or just relaxing. This beautiful May day I went to the archipelago for a short walk.

I hope you also enjoy the views!

Tourist in my home town, walking by our old castle

Today I took some time to refuel in the middle of the day. It’s hard staying inside studying all day when the sun is shining outside.

I went for a few hours walk in my town and looked at the miracle of spring. I experienced so much beauty. It’s good to look at familiar things from a strangers perspective.

I walked by the small river and passed the castle, which is from around year 1300… The sky was incredible blue, I love when the sky is blue! I passed small houses, water and flowers, a great path to walk.

By the way, I took some photos on my walk and I hope you can see some of the beauty in my small home town:-)

Happy may to all of you

As you might have noticed, it’s not much posts here at the moment. Right now I work with the last tasks in my education and I will be finished by June, 2.

Working an studying at the same time takes a lot of time… I don’t even get out much, so I’m not taking much photos.

I hope to see you this summer and continued. There will be more photos here and I will get time to stay outdoors!

Until then I wish you a wonderful May <3

Wonderful Weekend escape

Another wonderful weekend has come to an end

This weekend was amazing, first days of spring with sun and a stunning blue sky. We went out for a short hike, for some time in the sun and to eat some food outdoors.

We had a really wonderful weekend out there in the sun, with small projects like making a fire and cooking lunch:-) Hot chocolate is a must for my familiy on such hiking trip.

Wonderful Weekend

 

After lunch we went looking at the amazing views around the lake. This lake is called Nävsjön and is a great place to visit all year. There were people out on the lake, fishing, I would not have gone out on the ice, but I guess they knew what they where doing.

 

Reflecting sun, slowly melting the ice.

 

The ice is melting fast and I wonder how long it is possible to sit on the ice for fishing.

 

Nature is a great artist, I think the color mix is stunning and spot on or what do you think?

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

Interesting discoveries on the road taken

As a person who loves to hike, I have walked many roads:) I walk in the forest, by the sea in the archipelago. I walk in mountains and in cities and it’s always exciting to find out what’s around the corner.

Cities are fascinating. There is always some kind of surprises and they hold a lot of different environments: houses, parks, shops, streets, water and so on. My interpretation of this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge brings me back to Stockholm and a trip to the south part of the city. On this walk I found small gardens with sunflowers:

Suddenly when I looked up, I saw a clear blue sky and some wonderful old houses, reaching for the sky.

I continued my walk on a narrow path and came back to city streets, and the view was amazing. I strolled down the street and continued my walk down the road taken.

Dreaming about winter meets spring

Wonderful times when winter meets spring

I love when winter meets spring, don’t you do that to? We haven’t had much winter lately, not for several years. 5-6 years ago we had some fantastic winters in opposite to the latest years. We had lots of snow and then spring arrived. As a result the snow was slowly melting in the warm sun, much as it “should be”, according to me.

While I have been looking in my photo archives I have found some amazing winter photos. It seems like we have had days that are cold and crispy, while the sun light makes the whole world several shades lighter.

I also found wonderful, sunny spring day with melting ice. Finally the sea is slowly winning the fight against the compact ice and it breaks apart.

It’s lovely to see how finally the spring wins the fight and the water gets it’s freedom. It’s much the opposite to last year when we did not even notice that winter turned into spring. The last photos in this post is taken in springtime and summer. Both with wonderful evening light and stunning reflection. I hope you will enjoy and leave your opinion below about winter meets spring! What do you think about when you see this photos?

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

Light and Shadow

Light that create a shadow -different sides of the same coin:) I love the structure of shadows on the wall and the possibility to create different structures, playing with different light and source of light. Of course the shadow is also created by the object in focus. These components are one of the central things in photography, when I take photos indoors. I think it’s similar to all artistic expressions, that it is all about playing with and interpreting the surroundings. Fun and enjoyable!

This post is a interpretation of the theme in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I hope you enjoy the picture and if you would like to see more photos of shadows please click here.

The Daily Post, Weekly photo challenge: Solitude

Solitude -for me

Solitude is a positive word for me. I love to walk on empty streets all by myself, left with my thoughts. I need it to recover, it might be a walk in an empty street or spending time alone in nature. In stressful times its easy to forget about taking time for myself, which makes me even more stressed. This photo shows a narrow street in the old town, Stockholm. It’s crowded in the old town, but some of the narrow streets are empty. Wonder feeling walking around all alone:)

My photos can now be seen on Crowdifyclub

Do you have photos that you would like to showcase on Crowdifyclub?

Right now I’m trying out a new site: Crowdifyclub. It is a social network that pays members for various things that they are already doing for free. This includes uploading photographs, art, blogging, creating events, sharing content of other members and much more. Click here to read more.

The site is in startup mode right now and the number of members are increasing all the time.I think it is fun to join it from start. You can also join and create an account for free, to see what its all about. If you are interested in social media, photo, blogging or have some idea you like to get help sharing, go check it out:)

Here is some of my photos that I uploaded to Crowdifyclub:

The best thing this far is that I get a lot of help to be promoted. Of course this includes to help others and promote their ideas, blog posts and photos. It is about give and take like in everyday life. And that is what I think is the most promising part of Crowdifyclub.

Today there is a lot of sites where I can sell photos. I also know that there is a lot of social media sites. But I have not found a site that combines these activities and also encourage promotion. It is free to check out to see what it’s all about.
