The King and the Christmas tree

The king and the Christmas tree

The annual Christmas tree has come up in Gustaf Adolfs Torg in central Gothenburg. From this angle it looks a little as though the King is unhappy aboput where they put it. He seems to be saying: Not there! Here!

It must be cooking! Steamed up windows at Cafe Nina on Stigbergstorget. Note the advert for a Flamenco evening with Emil Pernblad on the window below.

The old Lyckholms brewery out towards Mölndal. Long closed, now it’s hired out as commercial space, workshops or practice rooms for local bands – under re-development. This is a view I have of it most days on my way to work.

Hedge and monolith

Häcken sunset

The monolith I take to be one of the pylons for the floodlights that will illuminate Häcken Football Club’s new stadium now under construction at Rambergsvallen; the hedge is the little bush in foreground sillhouette in the picture below. At the same time, translate “Häcken” literally to English and you have “The Hedge”.
