No Smoking IMO

No Smoking IMO (above) An oil tanker (possibly called Dreggen, and with a very visible notice) in dock at Gothenburg’s oil port.
Hiss-ingen (below) Hisingen is the name of Sweden’s fourth largest island, but ‘hiss-ingen’ (which sounds exactly the same) means ‘no lift’ or ‘no elevator’. This seems to be the name of this crane (after all, not really a lift) in the container port of Gothenburg, located on Hisingen.

White sails and red keels catch the sun, filling the space above our heads in the glasshouse at the Lärjeån Kafé.

Göta river’s bridge open

Götaälv's bridge open

The central section of the bridge over the Göta river in Gothenburg can be raised to allow ships with a greater sail height than 18.3 metres to pass. It doesn’t happen so often, so I got lucky with this picture.

The bridge is due to fail by 2020. No, I’m kidding! It reaches the end of its constructed lifespan in 2020, but might not fail even so. (I hope it doesn’t – I use it daily.) The debate about how to replace it – and with what – is still underway.

I see Google maps believes the bridge is called Hjalmar Brantingsgatan. They’re wrong.

This picture makes it look more organised and less chaotic than it seemed at the time. This is only picture I took during the building process that is remotely worth sharing. This photo was taken inside Svenska mässan on Wednesday 26th, the day before yesterday’s photo.
