Went for a cycle trip on the levee along Vistula today. It was a bit chilly, but a nice day anyway. The last couple of weeks rain combined with snow-melting in the mountains has really made the river grow.
Our local cemetary on All saints evening 2009. In Poland they like putting out grave lights on All saints. It makes for nice pictures. This year it was raining the whole evening, so I post this photo from a few years back instead.
Jotunheimen, probably Norway’s most famous national park, like its (almost) namesake is rugged and mountainous, although the giant-population seems to be quite sparse. In the south-west of the park the mountain-range Hurrungane contains some of Norway’s most recognised alpine peaks. This is where I went with Swedish Expeditions (that I […]
A few days ago a friend asked me to take some pictures of her garden. It’s a typical, if unusually well-kept Polish działka; a small garden where families in the town and cities are supposed to relax, socialise, grow fruits and veggies. In Warsaw, large areas are cordoned off as […]
Recently I was away with my brothers and my dad on a kind of nostalgy trip to Värmland, a landscape dominated by large empty forests, depopulation and more mosquitos than you ever want to meet (although this early in the summer they are mercifully few). The occasion was my dad’s […]
A few weeks back we visited the large miniature train exhibition at Warsaw’s National Stadium. The models are incredibly detailed, and it’s clearly so that some people have way too much free time for hobbies. Photographed from the correct angles it’s hard to see that the depicted scenes are only […]
On my research group’s webpage we wrote about a visit we had from some students from the Radom High School of Art. The students, guided by their photography professor Weronika Elertowska, made their own salt prints. I just wanted to add a few more photos from the event that I […]
Before I had a child I never realised how fortunate I was to have grown up in a quite hilly city like Göteborg. Warsaw is almost completely flat, which from a biking point of view might be advantageous, but which leaves children in search of a good hill for sledging […]
För andra veckan i rad organiserade “Kommittén för demokratins försvar” (Komitet Obrony Demokracji, KOD) demonstration för att protestera mot hur den nya PiS-regeringen försöker att undergräva konstitutionsdomstolens (TKs) makt. Förra veckan samlades kanske 50000 personer utanför TK i Warszawa (reportage av SRs Thella Jonsson här), och idag var vi upp […]
All saints’ day in Poland means millions of people visiting the cemeteries, adorning the graves with flowers and grave lights. The picture above was taken leaving the shutter open as I was walking past the local cemetery. A picture of graves at night. Note the grave in the centre. It’s […]
