A lost cap on the cycle bridge over Hamnkanalen near the Casino. Is there something about the weather that brings out the nationalists? Earlier this week we had a Norwegian flag, now here’s a British union flag. Of course, it’s on a baseball cap and it’s been lost in Sweden. There’s a whole mine of metaphores there for someone to dig out. 🙂

The passed boot: Standing outside the Biopalatset cinema complex, waiting for friends, this child’s rubber boot was abadoned all alone in the street. I photographed many people walking by.

On what is now a lawn of grass but must earlier have been a snowy slope, a forgotten toboggan, plastic blue, yearns back to the winter. (Ah, c’mon – I’m a poet, doncha know it?)

A cast-off umbrella fills the opening of a litter bin at Kungsportsplatsen. Rain and wind – not exactly the picture of Gothenburg the tourist information office wants to promote, I suspect.

Somehow I don’t think this little motorboat, trapped in the ice, will be going anywhere fast even after the thaw sets in.
