Photographer's Note

Picture of a member of the Royal Guard at the Royal Castle in downtown Stockholm. The guard has been on duty since 1523, and even though the Royal Family does not live there now, they still control the area. And they do so in a strict manner, cross the wrong line, and you will be staring down the barrel of a gun. The guard consists of young men doing their military service, so the members of the guard constantly change.

As soon as I pulled out my camera he stared me down and tried to look cool, which I suppose he succeeded in. I was tempted to yell "draw" when I pulled out my camera, but luckily I didn't, otherwise I might not be writing these lines.
