This time of year everyone’s on the look out for signs of spring – anything to let us believe the winter will soon be over. One sure sign is this tough little flower, pushing its way up through the gravel beside a bicycle path – Coltsfoot in English, Tussilago in Swedish (and Latin).
Outside a florist’s (Fiori) in Örgryte, Valentine’s Day 2013. A sieve in the form of a heart behind a small pot with blue flowers. The sheepskin on the bench encourages visitors to sit a while.
This colourful child’s bicycle represents joy, but the chain has come off. Joy, though unchained, without a chain is yet chained.
Or maybe it’s just another sign of first world profligacy.
Shadow of the gondola of a boom lift (sky lift) on a wall at Angered Gymnasium.
The temptation to try taking a photo through a hole I found bored in a lamp-post was too great to resist. It took a while before a subject crossed the field of vision though.
The feet of a full-size (model) dinosaur advertising an exhibition at the Universeum at Korsvägen. You can see a bit of the poster that was also used reflected in the water between the dino’s feet.
Gothenburg’s most famous photographical son.
He stands near the entrance to the Hasselblad Centre in Gothenburg’s Art Museum. Dressed for the weather and carrying one of the cameras he designed and built. He looks as though he’s taking a picture across the square. At his feet is the footprint of a moon boot – a reminder that the Apollo 11 astronauts took a Hasselblad camera to the moon and used it to take the iconic photo of humankind’s first footprint on another planet.
