WP Weekly Photo Challenge: My neighborhood

Göteborg, Majorna, Weekly Photo Challenge

This week’s Photo Challenge from WordPress is “My neighborhood”.  The challenge was to take photos with your mobile camera, but I do prefer using my compact Nikon. 

My part of Göteborg, is situated close to the river  with ferries to Denmark/Germany, and a fish market. The area is called Majorna and was built for workers with little money and spare time. It is not sophisticated, but has a character of its own. Nowadays it’s a popular place for young families. There are cafés and pubs, and parents with prams and dogs, but the area is calm and silent. It’s about 20 minutes by tram from the central station.

The biggest road is oriented east-west and completely straight, which gives it a fantastic light that is accentuated by the shiny tram rails.

Actually, the main content of this blog is about the place where I stay. For more examples, please look here.

    Det är såå roligt att se dina bilder från Göteborg. Staden där jag bot de första 34 åren i mitt liv…och så fina bilder sen!


    • Roligt att höra. Det finns ju en stad bortom evenemangsstråket. Som inflyttad stockholmare tror jag att jag upplever stadens kvalitéer på ett annat sätt än ur-Göteborgarna.


    • Thank you! I stay in Göteborg, Sweden’s second largest city on the west coast. There are about half a million inhabitants.


    • Tack! Det är lite svårt att göra något om grannskapet som känns nytt. Jag publicerar ju knappt något annat än bilder på det temat.


    • Nice to hear, thank you for visiting my blog! I used this premium theme for almost a year, but recently I’ve been thinking about a change. I would like the pictures larger.


  2. Jättefina bilder i en vacker stad, har tyvärr bara varit där vid ett tillfälle men åker gärna tillbaka igen.
    Du har en väldigt fin blogg med otroliga kort ! // Maria


    • Tack för dina vänliga ord, det var roligt att höra!
      Din blogg ser ut att vara full av snö och blå himmel – jag tittade in, mycket hastigt. Återkommer så snart jag har bättre tid 🙂
