Photographer's Note

This photo is a follow-up to my latest post, showing the Maria Magdalena church in Stockholm. When I left the churchyard and stepped into the street I saw this woman sitting alone with her mobile phone outside a restaurant. According to the exif data I took this 1 minute and 42 seconds after my last main photo.

I could have called this 'The Heart of the South', which is what the restaurant's name, 'Söders hjärta', means. 'Söder' is the commonly used short version of Södermalm, meaning roughly Southern district.

Of course this is yet another strictly nothing special photo, but I liked the combination of red lamps above the entrance and green blankets for customers sitting outside on a chilly day. Green and white are the colours of Hammarby IF, a Södermalm football club playing in the Swedish Premier League. But without the human presence I wuldn't have bothered to take a photo.

Please note the nearest sign, hanging above the woman, depicting an actual heart.

According to the restaurant's home page ABBA had dinner here once, but that must have been many years ago.

If you click at Map: view you can see where this was taken.

Looking for related photos to use as WS I found two from roughly the same area taken in late August last year.
