Yesterday at noon it was sunny and clear. I left my suburb with the bike to do some shopping and go to the gym. The city was full of strolling Stockholmers. There were also quite a few Russian- and italian-speaking tourists (with frequently used cameras) leaving traces of expensive perfume where they had crossed a street.
In the afternoon there was a change of weather. As I was heading southwards on my way home, the sky had become spectacularly hazy and the wind was increasing. I passed by the Swedish government buildings, situated in the Old Town. Impressive buildings from early 18:th to late 19:th century – and some huge pots of granite for decorative greenery. I had to stop to take some photos of my own, for the WordPress photo challenge of the week; monument.
