Tourists – a couple of images from August
Stockholm is usually invaded by tourists during the summer and I sometimes take advantage of it and pretend to be a tourist myself. This often gives me more possibilities as a street photographer, because people seldom pay any attention to tourists taking pictures of the city they are visiting. Lucky me they don’t know the truth. Anyhow, one day the predator in me woke up and the tourists turned out to be the perfect prey. This young couple taking pictures of themselves with the cellphone’s camera became the hissing monster’s first victims.
Infatuation is the perfect state of mind for a street photographer’s victims. They mostly think that there are only two people on this earth, but they are wrong and things could not be better. I can almost here her telling him “Oh darling, I think it would be better if you keep your mouth shut. Let’s try another shot”.
And now it is only too obvious that he knows how to distract her…!
Sorry pal, but it didn’t work out as planned! She had it her way and got another picture of the two of you together.
Staffan the Monster decided to move to another place. What’s happening outside the city hall? These lads were studying time tables, obviously eager for a tour by boat in the archipelago.
Another couple enjoyed their holiday’s lazy days on the lawn. They must have been together for some time, because they had certain problems with deciding what was most comfortable. This is how they started.
Back on the same track again
It took some time but now they have finally agreed and I could go back to my native Stockholmer-self again and leave the monster behind.
