A tree on a lake shore in Sweden looks like a stalk of broccoli. A photographer decides to photograph it over a number of years. It becomes popular on social media. Someone else makes a video about the entire broccoli tree thing. This is that video. Amazing.
My flickr contact Tommi Linna shot this amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden with his Samsung smartphone.
This is an incredible image. Not sure quite how it’s done but it really is special.
Flickr member theCoffa posted this very nice image of a foggy day in a park in Stockholm, Sweden.
I particularly like the trees on the hill on the right and the path coming down. The angle of that hill makes this interesting.
My flickr contact Tommi Sakari posted this fantastic image of a gull flying over a square in Stockholm, Sweden taken with his Ricoh GRD IV.
Flickr member Henrik took this excellent picture with his Ricoh GR of the Øresund Bridge that connects Malmo, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark.
I recognized this bridge as the same one in the excellent Danish/Swedish TV series: The Bridge, about a series of murders, the first one of which is discovered by a body found on this bridge by a female Swedish detective and a male Danish detective. These two characters drive the entire series and each of them has issues which cause interesting friction between them. Of course, if we understood Danish and Swedish culture, language, and the issues between them we’d have gotten even more out of this series but it was worthwhile even with subtitles for us “unworldly” Americans.
If you’re into these things, I highly recommend the Danish TV series The Killing (Danish) and its American counterpart: The Killing (US). Both are excellent.
And, if you want more, the Danish TV series Borgen is fantastic as well.
My flickr contact Helena took this image on the Österdal River in Leksand, Sweden with her Sony A7.
My flickr contact Helena has posted this excellent urban landscape of two bridges (one train, one car) taken with her Ricoh GR in Stockholm, Sweden.
I don’t do street photography (yet) but I enjoy seeing it.
Street Photography London has a great interview with Swedish Street Photographer Daniel Eliasson. Watch the video, it’s fascinating.
The entire Street Photography London site is well worth poking around in.
Daniel’s site is well worth a look too: Streetpeople.se.
