These wooden stairs up to a view point on Vrångö don’t look very used – or easy to use. Slippery when wet, to coin a phrase.

In the morning mist, on a low pine tree, a spider’s web pearled with droplets. Ramberget.

Do visit (and perhaps “like”) My Gothenburg Days/Dagar i mitt Göteborg on Facebook.

Illuminated sculpture of three figures illustrating the saying ‘Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil’. The figures are on poles in Drottingtorget in front of the Post Hotel. When switched on, they each change colour – dramatically against the night sky.

The sculpture is called “Dröm” (Dream) and was made by Catalan Spanish artist Jaume Plensa.

These figures previously appeared in a daylight photo on this website (taken with the old camera) in November 2012.

Another double-exposure, this time of some of the Christmas fairy lights in the Nordstan shopping centre. In this picture I first took a fairly crisp, focused picture of the lights, then superimposed on it a wildly out of focus photo of the same image. I thought it was more interesting.
