A hidden place in the forest. Old stones. Old drawings.
How important was this place, a long time ago?
Gråborg in Öland. A round castle from around 500 AD, built to its current size in the 12th century. It is about 210×160 m, so the curve of the wall isn’t that obvious in this picture. But the curve over the entrance is clear.
Curves, I agree, can be found everywhere. Check out other entries at the Daily Post.
I love mornings. When time seems to stand still for a while before the day takes off. When there is time to breathe and just be.
This picture is of one of those timeless morning moments. In a small cabin in the woods work will wait for another half an hour if you feel like spending some extra time in bed, maybe with a cuddly dog, or taking your second cup of coffee out on the porch in the sun.

This weeks theme is Escape, and it fits my mood perfectly. That is all I want to do right now. Escape to somewhere else, something else. Right here and right now I’m in the middle of getting ready for two big exams (one of which is the second biggest I’ll ever do at university). I just have to remind myself that it’s three weeks of my life, no more, and then I will escape this city!
This is a picture a friend took of me when we went horseback riding in New Zealand. It was a truly wonderful autumn day that I will not soon forget. It is a day I sometimes escape to in my mind, when I just need a break from school.
Light creates beautiful patterns. Light is beautiful. I love how it changes with the time of the day and with the seasons. This is the afternoon light in early summer creating a pattern through a glass of water.

A beautiful spring day in the mountains. That sort of day that really means spring to me. Blossoming apple trees are beautiful, but I can’t really do very much with them. As always, I miss home the most during spring… It has been my favourite time of year for a long time. It’s a bit sad that it is so short, but I guess that’s one of the things that makes it so precious!
Whats your favourite time of year? And how do you prefer to enjoy it?

Flag day in Sweden. In this case it’s Midsummer Day and my family is celebrating it out in my grandparents cabin by the river. This picture is of my grandfather taking down the flag in the evening when the sun is setting. Well, setting further to the south that is. At this time of year the sun does not set at all in the north, it’s when we enjoy the midnight sun.
In Sweden a number of days are designated as official flag days when the swedish flag is flown on all public buildings and flag poles. It is not mandatory to hoist a flag on your private flag pole, but a lot of people do. (More information can be found here)
This week’s photo challenge is Culture, and a hard one for me. I do think I spend to little time thinking about or experiencing culture. To see more pictures on the theme visit Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture at the Daily Post.
