To holmertz: Hotel room

Tack Gert,
That was a coincidence and all rooms have a lake view. But I certainly wanted to return to that place.

To holmertz: Man with the mask

Tack Gert,
I don't think he was bored. It isn't an everyday route for anyone and trains only run on weekends. Maybe the glimpse down was just a coincidence. It is also possible that he didn't like...

To jean113: Name of the bridge

Thanks Jean,
Name comes from former Stonecutters Island, which is after land reclamation now attached to the Kowloon Peninsula. I was on a front seat of a double deck bus.

Buttercups

Hi Craig and Brenda,
Buttercups are weeds in the sense that cows don't like to eat them, so they are not quite welcome in pastures. But I guess in other senses they are mostly harmless.

To ChrisJ: Rhododendrons

Thanks Chris,
Knowing this is a rhododendron does not get me very far as a botanist. Wikipedia says there are about 1000 species of them.

Österlånggatan

I know you do. But tourists, including me, move like sheep. Thanks for the tip. I try to remember it on my next visit to Stockholm.

To macjake: State of the mill

Thanks Craig,
Some parts of the mill have been rented for other operations. But I think most of the factory is just closed and most probably without equipment and no public access. My guess is the...

To emka: Finnish

Thaks Malgo,
That was quite fun. Of course some Finns can be expressive. Just check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPeW7Q2HYIE It is in Finnish, but that doesn't matter. Just imagine what...

To ChrisJ: Another bridge

Thanks Chris,
Yes there is another one, but that does not connect the city to the mainland but to the islands on the ocean side.

Thanks Craig,
This was painted in 2017. So it took a while before I presented it here.

To holmertz: Decision

Tack Gert,
They are scary animals. But at least it didn't change speed. Maybe it just smelled something.

To ChrisJ: Happiness

Thanks Chris,
Looking at that list, I get the feeling that it ranks economic and social preconditions for happiness, while happiness itself is practically impossible to measure. I have been...

To lousat: Good timing or lucky shot?

Thanks Luciano,
Neither one actually, but lots of frames in continuous shooting mode. Then I just tried to choose the best one thinking about the position, angle of wings and sharpness.

To burmaman: Rasiglia

Hi Ronny,
It is fairly easy to see this is not the same photo as the one posted in October although the angle is practically the same. Whether the difference is interesting, it is another matter. As...

To holmertz: Direction of look

Tack Gert,
Boring fact is that I have a few versions of her looking at different directions. And this was the sharpest.

To PaulVDV: Tired guy

Thanks Paul,
To be honest I'm not sure what was going on. My guess is that the tired guy is a museum visitor. And he was not evicted, at least not right away.

The Snowman

The Snowman has original sound. Most children's programmes in Finland are dubbed, but considering all the songs of The Snowman that would be just wrong.
