Two ages of Gothenburg, both now historical: in the background the crossbeam of the now disused Eriksberg traverse crane that straddles the Eriksberg shipbuilding basin, now a marina; and in the foreground the stone that marks the site of the alter of the first church of Karl IX’s Göteborg. Photo taken in Färjenäs park.

Newly woven cheerful trasmatta (Swedish rag rug), hanging for display in the sun, the shadow of some leaves falling across it (hence “shadow rug”). Photos taken on Sunday at Avtryck arts and crafts market at Färjenäs. See also from yesterday and Monday.

White lilac frames a private house on a hill at Färjenäs. The lilacs blossomed early this year and caught me out. Now when I took my camera on a lilac hunt so many were blown, but here in the shadow of Älvsborgsbron I found a few still pristine.
