Walking in the mist

Walking in the mist

The first heavy mist of the autumn – almost a fog – up on Ramberget. It wasn’t a fog, though because it lifted within about half an hour of me taking this photo.

Snake rope

Snake rope

Above: I liked the pattern on this mooring rope and the way it twisted snake-like around this… I think it’s called a mooring springer compensator. Come to think of it, one end of the springer thing looks a bit like a snake’s head too.
Below: More of the same rope.

A world in a bowl

A world in a bowl

On Kanaltorget at Lilla Bommen on Sunday, a Global Picnic – a world food festival with stalls and food from around the world. All reflected – a world in a bowl – in this glass pot of heating water. On the same day, at the same time this photo was taken, the neo-nazi Sweden Party was holding a pre-election rally at Götaplatsen. The global picnic seemed a much better place to be.
