Straw men and goats – Christmas decorations at Kronhusets julmarknad from the first Sunday in Advent two years ago.
The last few days have seen a blending of new photos and photos from the archives. Yesterday’s photo was new, taken on Friday evening 28th November. Today’s is an archive photo, taken on 2nd December 2012. The reason for the archive plundering has been that I’ve not been taking so many new photos recently. I’ve known for a little while that I was going to suspend publishing this blog at the end of November and that has undermined some of my self-disciplin.
This is the final photo on GBG365. Perhaps not forever, but certainly for a long time. During the next couple of weeks I hope to wind things up with a few News posts – some statistical roundups and final galleries – but no more daily photo posts. In January I’ll be moving to Brussels for a while, so daily photos from Gothenburg would be rather difficult… though perhaps a new Brussels photo blog may come once I’m settled and have my eye in.
Let me take the opportunity now to thank all the people who have visited this site on a regular or occasional basis, and to say farewell – for the time being!

Two magpies hunting for insects I suppose. The one to the left may be learning from the one to the right – or just looking for the right moment to snatch a catch.
The lost trainer of autumn outside the Göteborg konsthall (see yesterday’s photo).
Near the exit from the Göteborgs konsthall (Gothenburg Museum of Art) a litterbin decorated with ticket stickers, each colour a different day.
After what feels like a month of dull weather but is probably just one week, this morning the sun broke through the clouds. A reminder that somewhere there are always blue skies and the sun shining on fields and hills – if only the fields and hills of cloudscapes. The sillhouette is the slope of Ramberget – our raven-black mountain.
A junior school woodwork class seems to have had a birdhouse project – under the present atmospheric conditions a little colour is no bad thing.
Eriksberg and Klippan, the bow of the Alvsborg bridge and the mirroring curve of Sannegårdshamn – Gothenburg lights in the pre-dawn. Photo taken from Ramberget. A little photoshoppery to remove the worst of the low-light artifacts.
