Photographer's Note

The start of crossing from Goteborg to Oslo was quite rough, tearing the grand piano loose from its moorings and sending it skating toward us. The pianist stopped its course. A woman on the other side wasn’t so lucky; she got hit with a falling speaker. You’d never guess that she was seasick; she had even managed to release her tight grip on the piano. If she’d been in the room when the piano flew, she wouldn’t have trusted it either. Having heard her sing in calmer waters, tension in her gestures and voice was apparent. Once she bolted from the room but returned to finish the set.
Goteburg is a half hour bus ride from the completely industrial harbor. Advertising material lays claim to the longest shopping mall in the Scandinavian countries. Much of it was enclosed, for seemingly very good reasons. Although it didn’t rain much, the wind blew the fountain sideways. A resident commented sadly, mourning her lost summer, “It was wonderful in May; then it clouded up and it has been like this ever since.” I did catch a touch of blue in the sky just at sunset.
