Photographer's Note

Yesterday was Midsummer's Eve, which along with Christmas Eve is probably the most popular day of the year in Sweden, when families celebrate together and children get full attention. It's usually a fairly quiet day in Stockholm, because lots of people go to the countryside or to the archipelago outside the city to spend the weekend away from asphalt and heavy traffic.

I didn't go to the countryside or any island, but walking through one of the small parks on Södermalm island I took a photo of these two young ladies wearing garlands of flowers in their hair in honour of Midsummer.

By coincidence I already had two earlier photos from the same place that I hadn't bothered to show, but I will use the opportunity now to post them in the WS.

Across the water, which is a bay of lake Mälaren, you see the shoreline of Kungsholmen (Knight's Islet). Beyond that island are glimpses of the northwestern parts of Stockholm's "inner city".

The Map: view will give you some indication where I took this. The Google camera wasn't brought to the exact place.
