A side entrance to Storkyrkan (The Main Church) in Stockholms old town. This church is the seat of the bishop of Stockholm and also the home church for the royalties.
There are hundreds of pictures like this on TE but I liked the less than perfect angle of the lamp here.
When I was in the royal guard this church wall was to be protected by me. I remember sending out the guard to check a group of young people who looked to be doing grafiti on it. It turned out to be art students that were checking color samples. Later they would build a model of the old town. ;o)

A very harmonic picture, Ebbe. I like the composition, the colors and the structures. And, of course, the oddity in it...
And I like the fact that you and Zandra are uploading photos of lamps at the same time ;o)

Very nice colours and sharpness. Beautiful archtecture, correct nobody's perfect !!! A very good documentary.

You are right that at first glance there seem to be a lot of shots like this on TE, but what makes this one a rare find is that it's an architecture shot with a humorous twist to it. Effective cropping, and good details and colors of the building - with a nice "seasonal" touch added by the snow. Nice note, too. Well seen, Ebbe.

I thought everything in Sweden was perfect. Very nice composition with attractive colours and textures.

Poor old lamp, it is the only one in this pic to be unperfect. The rest is made of straight lines or perfect squares. And as in the world, where your differences may be your wealth, it is the first thing I saw.
Very symbolic, I like it Ebbe.

Amazing colors and textures. The unperfect lamp is great but I really like the pipe running beside it. The litle green color on it adds a certain flavor to this photo.

A little of humor doubled by a photo very well consisted with well saturated colours. Very good shot!
Un peu d'humour doublé d'une photo très bien composée avec des couleurs bien saturées.

I am not so sure that there are hundreds like this one out there. Not so sharp anyway. And not so harmonious in colour and composition either. I approach most photos with my mental "scissors", but I can't find anything to cut or critisize here. And I love the snow.

Perfect composition. I like that the lamp is in the upper corner not cenetered in the photo. It gives the feeling that I am really standing in front of the church. Thank you

Great! Well spotted! Composition's nice. Maybe I'd put a little more foreground.

Missed this spot myself, well seen Ebbe! (-:

Très belle photo, les couleurs sont superbes. On imagine facilement une scène de film à cette endroit. Bravo
