Photographer's Note

It's soon the presidential elections in France, and I was quite amused to hear the two candidates from the two largest political parties talking:
One of them keeps on refering to the scandinavian model saying how good it is.
The other one keeps on talking about the english model, saying how good it is.
It turns out that I live in England and spend a fair bit of time in Sweden having a swedish girlfriend...
So I have a little insight of what things are for people living in these countries.
Sweden is a super social country, there's no question about it. For exemple (and to make it simple), both mothers and fathers can take up to 16 months of parental leaves!!!! (the most in the world as far as I know...)
No wonder why accroding to UNICEF, Sweden scores 2nd in a "children well-being" ranking!

The photo: Taken on the seaside (you can see the water on the right side) in Helsingborg. This kid was having lots of fun in the snow.

Eric and I had a little deal, so we posted similar photos today. Check Eric's here!!!
