Photographer's Note

This is nothing special. I just noticed this man with a blue (empty?) IKEA bag sitting on a yellow bench by two balloons, probably his own, featuring the Swedish colours and flag. His clothes were mainly dark grey, maybe with a touch of blue, but there were traces of yellow on his cap, tie and socks.

I had no idea if he deliberately had seated himself here to look patriotic. Could he have been paid by the shop-owner to create a patriotic image? Or could his dark glasses and white cane indicate that he was blind and had no idea of the colour of the bench?

Such a simple photo raising so many questions!

From one of the busiest streets on Södermalm island, Stockholm.
