[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am back home after my city break in Stockholm. I was so eager to post a picture yesterday but I could not to do it. it seems that the problems have been resolved now.
My trip was short but full of wonderful memories and many nice pictures (I hope :)). I bought My Stockholm Pass and first went by myself to some museums, churches, palaces... But the highlight were Saturday and Sunday lovely walking with Gert as a guide. Poor Gert, I wanted to see all places from his photos, and even more. "His " island, Sodermalm, is really charming, with many small wooden houses, old, in nice colours - Swedish red or ochre. And we discovered a hidden gem very near where Gert lives, so there was something new also for him. Not totally waste time.

Do I need to write any dedication? It is obvious :)

Hello Malgo,
I am glad to hear I did not waste your time. This is a fine photo from one of my favorite parts of Södermalm. A red cottage, fine chimneys, a person and two huge orange plastic bags for heavy rubbish from construction sites, They are usually regarded as making the streets ugly, but here the colours fit quite well.
I am curiously looking forward to your upcoming uploads.
Kind regards,
I see they have not yet fixed the problems of apostrophes.

Hello Malgo,
I imagine that this is a part of Stockholm not much frequented by tourists, very useful having a local guide. I like the point of view and the use of the cobbled street as a lead line. The lady walking her dogs contributes much to the overall mood. The saturated colours of the buildings make a lovely contrast with the pastel blue sky.

Hello Malgo,

I read that you are back out of Stockholm with a fantastic guide as Gert, can never are troubles.
What a quiet place with the old classic cobblestones as street view.
An excellent city or village scene with the classic houses.
Nice depth and perspective too.
Sharpness and colours are pleasant to look at.
Composition and presentation are perfect made.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hello Malgo

Great how that typically Swedish kind of red pops up even in this rather down-to-earth city scene. The inclusion of the walking figure is a good idea.

Fajnie Ci tak, że miałaś wycieczkę do Sztokholmu, też chętnie wybrałbym się, ale o tej porze roku to miałaś chyba trochę krótki dzień, spokojna uliczka, ładnie, czyściutko i tak bardzo po szwedzku
pozdrawiam Ryszard

Czesc Malgo,
Tym razem relacja online ze Szwecji:) Oj dlugo w domu nie mozesz posiedziec.
Klimatyczna uliczka, urokliwe miejsce.Widze ze relacja juz trwa od kilku dni, pewnie duzo nocnych zdjec bedzie.

Hi Malgo
so where is the WS photo of your and Gert? thats what I'm waiting for! haha

Stockholm is a city that i'm very hopeful to return to soon, i didnt have my good camera with me at the time, and I missed out on alot.

this shot here is more of a gritty scene, not the typical clean/pristine areas we usually see from this area. and thats fine too, nothing wrong with that at all.
fine textures, colours, and it looks cold :)

Hello Malgo,

A nice dedication to Gert and surprising to see no snow. I thought it would be knee deep this time of year! Looks similar to Gamlastan. The red wall at right contrasts well with the pale blue grey sky to give a fantastic warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

Hello Malgo,
it's great to explore such an interesting city with a "guide" that knows it so well and is eager to answer questions and look at it through your "fresh" glance. Your picture is very fine and interesting, the word "exploration" was the first that came to my mind. I like the warm, moody colours and the variety of textures. It's great that there's a person adding life to this picturesque and so quiet setting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Hello Malgo,
This is a charming scene. I like the bold, red color, and the cobblestones. The woman walking her dogs is perfect for adding some life to the photo. This photo reminds me of a Volvo commercial that is on US television right now. This street looks similar to the one in the commercial.

Hello Malgo,
There is a great sense of depth in this photo. The red structure that extends into the middle of the photo is eye-catching.
