This is not a mural (84)
|My latest photo showed a large wall painting on Södermalm island in central Stockholm. This is not a wall painting, but when I arrived by chance at this place yesterday in another part of the island, I thought for a brief moment I was watching another mural – a very unusual one.|
But of course it's only a tree growing 20–30 meters from the gable of the large building. But in the strong mid-day light the tree looked just like a black silhouette applied to the wall.
No people, not much to make it my own composition, but I liked this anyway, so here it is. While the tree is heavily cropped, the photo is only slightly cropped on the sides.
Here is a larger version.
This building is one of the most attractive addresses on Södermalm, and probably in the entire city of Stockholm. It is from the 1890's and seen from the other side, from the Old Town, it looks like a castle. You can see it in this photo, on top of the hill. It has always been, and still is, a house where many celebrities with a solid economy have chosen to live.
You can find approximately where I was standing by going with the yellow Google man to the map coordinates 59.32028 18.06250. But the Google camera was there before they trimmed the trees.
As bonus photos today I offer two views that have nothing to do with this one, except that they were taken only a few blocks away. One shows a lady in red, the other two persons with a view.

|A view from the northern edge of Södermalm across the innermost bay of lake Mälaren, before it floats into the Baltic Sea (a short distance outside the photo to the right), and then towards the Old Town and the city centre. I took this about 250 meters from my house, on a narrow path where Google didn't go. The big house in the main photo is a few blocks to the left.|

|A blossoming tree, a lady in red and a bicycle on a sloping cobblestone street: enough for me to take a photo. Map coordinates here are 59.31961 18.06371.|
