    I adore pictures, but I don`t take them of myself.


    I`m not a photographer nor good at taking pictures.
    I took this pic in the mountain, village called Hjula, during war.

    Those are beautiful, Claes! I'll have to show them to my mother, she is obessed with all things Swedish. And it's wonderful to see it's still snowing somewhere because it's certainly not snowing here.

    feet lovely and still as sleeping doves,
    porcelain bones strong enough to carry a life,
    but weighty and unmovable
    As black Dakota hills.

    Thank you all, for the nice comments. I noted a need to add some brief comments to each picture, and updated the previous post.

    Please convey my regards to your mother. I'm afraid we have no snow either: Those winter pictures are from last winter.

    Anyway: On with the show.. Here is another batch:


    Wintery picture from New Years Eve 2004. Eskilstuna, Sweden.


    Hare, right outside the window, at work in Torshälla, Sweden.


    Tame rodent at Tom Tit's in Södertälje, Sweden.


    Slightly outdated steam engine in Mariefred, Sweden.


    Bouganvillea (I think) in Hammamet, Tunisia


    Gate in Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia.


    Busy night at Avenue Habib Bourgiba, Hammamet, Tunisia.


    George the camel, outside Hammamet, Tunisia. (Two things should be noted: George was quite cranky, and he farted continually during an entire afternoon!).


    Lemurs at Skansen Zoo, Stockholm, Sweden.

    wow ,fascinating pics ,Cales, I'm a fan now.

    Poetess, great pictures and I'm sorry that they were taken during the war. This virgin nature should never be spoiled.

    You do know how to capture real beauty, Claes....
    Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.

    Be the change you wish to see

    Yes please, do take up photography. If I achieve that, you have definitely made my day: I love it when I can inspire others I have never worked for a magazine, but I have in fact had some pictures published. As it happens I took up photography in the 70's (only black and white, back then - I even bought 35mm film in 50m batches and loaded the cassettes myself!). I spent many hours in the darkroom.

    Wonderful photos again Claes! I asore those century-old trains and how you captured the animals' activity. Their eyes full of vibrancy, their movements so spontaneous. And a street doesn't look that magnificent.

    Now WHERE IS NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC?????

    Time for another batch? Here we go:


    A wintery creek in Torshälla, Sweden. I realize that this is not evident from the picture, but it was actually taken inside the premises of a Cold Rolling plant... where I happen to work.


    Bottlenose Dolphins at Kolmården Wildlife Center close to Norrköping, Sweden.


    Assisi, Italia. We visited it on a business trip to a supplier nearby.


    Colloseum, Roma, Italia.


    Totte Viking at Ekeby Riding School, in Eskilstuna Sweden. A nice and mildmannered Pony.


    Old Town of Eskilstuna, Sweden. Some of those buildings are from the 18th century.


    Gliders returning to Ekeby Gliding Club, Eskilstuna, Sweden, after completing the task of the day during the world Gliding Championships of 2006. I used to fly there myself in the 70's and 80's.


    Bug at Öland, Sweden.


    Butterfly at Borgholm, Öland, Sweden.


    Bumble bee at south Öland, Sweden.
