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.
All this season, fighting wind and rain, Christmas choirs have been performing at “the singing Christmas tree” on Drottningtorget.
Seasonal lights behind a seasonally rainy window. These little triangles of electric candles – reminiscent I feel of menorah – are everywhere in Sweden at Christmas – they come up at the beginning of December and stay until mid-January. Current weather conditions are less than wintery – but very Gothenburgish.
A final post with living flame to complete my series for the four Sundays in Advent.
Now in the darkest time of the year torchlight processions are popular, but what these people were doing gathered on the steps at Götaplatsen in the wind and rain on Friday evening I really don’t know. It looked like they might be a choir, but they didn’t sing. They seemed cheerful enough though.
Bare trees, grey, on a slope beyond a dry stone wall by Mölndalsån – the grass and moss is green from all the rain and above zero temperatures we’ve been having recently.
Above: Looks like a Slavonian grebe – Podiceps auritus – swimming alone in the rain on Möndalsån, the stream that runs north through Mölndal to Gothenburg.
Below: The same bird, closer, lighter but (even more) out of focus.
