No Smoking In My Opinion!

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.

This canary yellow sportscar was pulled up by the side of the road while the driver spoke on the phone. I waved my camera at him and he was happy enough to let me take photos. After, he said he’d largely built the car himself.

In Keillers Park yesterday mid-morning, the sun was shining and a kindergarten class was out enjoying the day. Everyone was well-wrapped because it’s still very cold. After play the class, all linked together on the same rope, set off back to school.

Sign of spring

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).
