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:)

The light is always stunning in the morning. But this photo from an early Paris morning is really special, Sacre Coeur from another point of view…
This photo of the famous church in Paris brings me great memories. Early morning and the whole family was strolling, first through the streets of Montmartre, up towards Sacre Coeur. In a small alley we spotted this wonderful view. It’s been a while now, and I really want to go back to Paris. But at the moment I can at least enjoy the photos from my last trip there:) You can find som more photos from Paris in another post: Back from my Paris trip.
Södermalm is now a trendy part of the Swedish capital. A oas high above the rest of Stockholm. You can find nice walking paths with a view over the rest of the city. Old houses can be found everywhere and here is a lot of street life. The great thing is that you can also find a lot of flowers, gardens and nature, in the middle of the city:) If you like to sit in the street having a coffee while watching all the people passing by, this is the right place. I visited Södermalm yesterday, a sunny and warm day, we really had a great time walking around the area. I hope you will enjoy my photos from our trip.
I have been very busy lately… With my vacation:) I have had zero time in front of my computer, not too much time with my camera and a lot of time IRL. Fantastic and enjoyable, I think it is important to take care of the time of in ways that make us reload. It will soon be autumn and a lot of time for “cosy” evenings inside…
Today I visited Norrköping, my photos from that trip can be seen here: Covey View
I hope you enjoy that post. We are some bloggers from around the world that write on Covey view about a lot of different subjects, so please have a look and I hope you like it:)
I have been through my archives this time and I found some photos that are “between”, literally. I wished to find something more sophisticated, but these will do… The photos are taken in London and Paris and shows only some objects to illustrate the theme of this week. Please feel free to give me your thoughts in the comment field below.
The first photo is taken an early morning in January in London. The window opener looked very “Photo kind” and I think it is a great detail. I also love the soft colors and patterns at the window.
Looking out through the window there was some wonderful small gardens. I love the contrast between the plants and the rough tiles on the walls. Makes interesting photos.
In larger cities the spaces to park is rather small… I always wonder how they manage to get out of there. n the other hand the cars in cities have some bumps and scratches;) I guess it is not easy to drive here.
This is my story from last weeks Paris trip. My first time in Paris and a wonderful experience, we had a great time. My goal for the trip was to take photos of things that not have been seen too much or to find some other perspectives of “known” sites or views. I am not sure I succeeded but I sure have a lot of memories in my photos.
We lived in an apartment in a very “noisy” part of Montmartre, just beside the Moulin Rouge. Our view from the French balcony offered a lot of people. I love to watch people in middle of their lives, on their way somewhere. I spent some time just looking down at our nearest street.
In our street (Rue Lepic), there where small shops for all kinds of things, one for fish, one for bread and so on. I bought some wonderful Pions in the flower shop.
I love roofs and rooftops, walls and windows. Here are some nearby views, also taken from our window;
I love the soft colors in grey, blue and turquoise, the red large advertisement makes a great contrast…
My mother enjoyed our view as well;
The garbage truck usually block the whole street, and sometimes causes some irritation…:)
Day two on our Paris trip we went for a trip to Tour Eiffel, something my kids wished for. There was so much people, and that is why we decided not to get up to the top… I took of course some photos, but I think I will show you my “best” perspective of that tower.
Living in Montmartre there was a lot of walking in that area, it is in some way like a small town in the countryside, some streets were empty. At the highest point in Montmartre is the church Sacré Coeur, we went there a few times and from there the view over Paris are awesome.
Finally here are some random street photos, I found Poppies, roses and a lot of pad locks…
