Demonstration in central Jönköping Saturday 12 April, 1 000 people marching.
Happy to be a part of this important march the past weekend.
Svanängen and Stålhberg.
A week ago I was at an amazing concert with Emil Svanängen, aka Loney Dear. Together with him on stage was Malin Ståhlberg, Junekvintetten, John Bauers Brass and Mats Olsson. The concert hall was packed with an enthusiastic crowd.
This concert was a part of a tour within Jönköping County called “Svanängen on Tour”.
I was in such a hurry for the concert that I forgot to bring my “big” DSLR camera. Kind of funny, but thank God, my small camera was in my pocket!
On this video they are playing a new tune, filmed with small camera.
Mother is becoming 92 so we went there to celebrate her! She likes to sing and remember many old sacred songs!
This wonderful Autumn day beautiful Pernilla was celebrating her anniversary by inviting family and friends.
Linda Pettersson, Krister Jonsson.
At the end of August I went some 100 km south of Jönköping, to attend a a concert at Lekaryd Church, outside Alvesta. Linda Pettersson, an amazing jazz singer and artist, together with fantastic guitarist Krister Jonsson were performing. This was one of the better concerts I ever been to!
I wish more people would discover this brilliant music! Please check out the amazing album Remembering (at Spotify).
As a title for this amazing photo festival I like to put the classic Swedish proverb: “Do not cross the stream for water”.
Since a couple of years there is a new fantastic photo museum in Stockholm, Fotografiska, where a lot of amazing photographers work have been exhibited. But I would like to add: since a couple of years there exist an amazing photo festival in Mullsjö, the Nordic capital of photo! So for a person like me, who lives 30 minutes by car from Mullsjö, I do not need to travel all the way to Stockholm to view world class photo! At least not in the beginning of June!
Another meaning of the above proverb is that there exist some amazing photographers in the neighborhood! For example Örjan Henriksson, Mullsjö. His exhibition show interesting photos of residents from Mullsjö, people that for some reason has caught his interest! So for this exhibition he did not walk far for the motives!
People beneath Acropolis.
After 5-6 hours on Blue Star Paros, I arrived to Piraues, went with metro to Monastiraki and then finally Syntagma station. After some 10 minutes walk I found my hotel on Apolonos street. Later during afternoon and evening I walked in Plaka and south of Acropolis hill.
When you arrive to this little village in the north of Naxos during summer time, the taverns by the harbour is packed with people. Some of the arrives with bus, doing a tour around the island.
When arrived 13 of April, I started to hesitate if any of the taverns was open. No one of them seem to be ready for guests. Anyway, the last one in the bay was open, Captain Michalis café, and I could have a lovely Greek salad, looking at the calm water of the small harbour.
Greek salad, Yiannis Tavern, Chalki, Naxos
Suddenly I went to Greece, in the beginning of April. OK, I decide a couple of weeks ahead, wondering when Spring would arrive to Sweden. On Naxos I have a habit of visiting Chalki village on my first ride on my rented scooter. Why change a winning concept? Chalki is a calm place and recent years quite charming , the salad at Yiannies is lovely, and I am hungry after my first ride!
Today mother was morning tired. Not very talkative.
