Photographer's Note

A nice summer evening in Blattnicksele in the south of Lappland.

Judging by the look of buildings Blattnicksele once was a commercial center by the standards of this region. Today only the fashion shop Viola´s and a grocery store remain. All credit to those shopkeepers who make such an effort to keep their stores open so that the rest of us can get the things we need out there.

The brushed texture of the facade is typical for Swedish buildings of this size and age. It is meant to look like a "stone house" but it is really just a thin layer of cement plaster on a timber wall.
