Broken

Photos from the Majorna district of Göteborg, where the facades often are coated with corrugated galvanised metal sheets. Yellow leaves are covering the streets now, and the western winds are strong and humid. Ailsa’s travel theme of the week is Broken.

Treasure

A beloved friend, enjoying a blooming avenue of elm trees at sunset, is truly a treasure –  this week’s theme of the WordPress Photo Challenge.

Travel theme: Short

Ailsa’s weekly travel theme is “Short”. My contribution to the photo challenge is an image from Göteborg. I captured it while waiting for the bus. The reflection appeared on a big billboard ad for a science fiction movie, where the person on the poster suddenly […]

The vessel

Yet a wonderful afternoon by the river. The big ferries come and go. Fredrikshavn in Denmark is three hours away from Göteborg. To Kiel in Germany it takes a night. I read an interesting book and kept my feet wet – but felt no urge […]

Peaceful/ Sommarkväll

A late summer evening in the place I live, in Göteborg. The sun has set, it’s dusk. During these summer nights it doesn’t  really get dark. The blackbirds are singing, there is hardly no traffic around and very few people. It is calm and peaceful […]

February light

It’s cold. But there is light again!  The wind is fierce and the small birds are eating, constantly. A few of them are exploring their special spring-vocalizations, perhaps for the first time. After months of darkness, the light is suddenly back. It dazzles and hurts, […]

Sandarna

Halvvägs till havet, och en bra bit till stan. I stillhet ligger Sandarna, vilar på Göteborgs västsida, omgärdat av industriområden, kyrkogård och en väldig trafikapparat. De gånger jag varit där i det vanliga kustvädret – grått, fuktigt, blåsigt – har jag inte tänkt på annat […]

Mariaplan

A nice area in my part of Göteborg; Mariaplan. Nice because there are people in the streets. Small shops like a florist, a pharmacy, a camera store, the butcher shop, and even a watchmaker. Pubs and restaurants. And the tram rails that reflect the sun.

Soltopp

Ett par hela dagar utan regn eller vind. Trots det fina vädret grånar färgerna på marken om eftermiddagen. Men när jag lyfter ansiktet uppåt ser jag först en RÖD mås, och sedan en till… och så hustopparna! Solen sjunker och målar allt som flyger eller […]

Gul natt i Majorna

Lördag kväll. Tretton grader varmt och löven prasslar, de lyser som guldpengar. Natten är gul av lampsken. I ett fönster ser jag två som omfamnar varandra innerligt, i ett annat halsar en man ur en grön flaska.  Yellow saturday night. Leaves like brilliant golden coins.
