Conversation, like certain portions of the anatomy, always runs more smoothly when lubricated.’ – Marquis de Sade

Stockholm, Sweden.

I posted this earlier, in b/w but there was something that bothered me about that version. I finally pinned it down to a slight misalignment and the moronic editing of yours truly. The picture is a merger of two pictures . they were both taken hand held, one with the focus on the ring and one with the focus on the background. I then stacked them and edited out the part in the center of the ring. The difficult part was to get everything to line up. And to to keep the camera still. I think it came out quite well in the end. One of my current favorits.


You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. Who would believe this?

Whatever it was, it doesn’t bother a Volvo PV444 (444 means: 4-seater, 4 cylinder, 40 horsepower), a pre 1954 with split front and rear screen and roof side-mounted indicators. After 60 years, this old hunchback thing – actually known as Volvo’s peacetime car when first introduced in 1944 at the Royal Lawn Tennis Hall in Stockholm in hope for a brighter future when World War II was still raging  – has managed to cross the open border somehow. Who would believe this.  

➳ We’ve been blessed with some sunshine today, so we packed our things and decided to have a day out in the wild. We brought some mulled wine to heat over the fire 🔥
