Photographer's Note

This will look much better in a new tab.

My last photo was taken on Midsummer's Eve, last Friday, and so are those I show today. But these pictures were taken several hours earlier, in a different part of the city.

Midsummer is one of the most popular holidays of the year to most Swedes, and lots of people leave the cities to celebrate it in the countryside. Road traffic is intense and from various quays in Stockholm people leave by boat.

This long line of people are waiting to go somewhere on board the S/S Storskär, built in 1908 and still going strong. She has been used for regular traffic in the Stockholm archipelago since 1939 and is a listed cultural heritage.

The Stockholm archipelago covers an area of about 1.700 square km containing about 24.000 islands and islets. About 10.000 people live here permanently.

Across the water to the right is Gamla stan (Old Town) and in the distance to the left is Södermalm island, where I live. On the hill is Katarina church, located in an area where many of my TE photos were taken.

The map coordinates 59.32888 18.07667 will show you approximately where this is.
