My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective

Snooping around with the camera

An apartment in The Old Town was for sale, so the front door was open for a change, enabling possible buyers to come in and have a look at it (before they call the bank and really try to get themselves in debt). This was an opportunity I just couldn’t miss, so I sneaked the lens in through the front door and took a couple of photos. As you can see, the atmosphere was fantastic; I strongly suspect the house was built in the 17th century. I have probably taken leave of my senses, but I don’t care because I want to do some kind of photo documentation of the entrances in The Old Town. The angles, the stairs worn by time, the dark and narrow places and so on. Flash on the camera? Nope, that would ruin it all!

    Lynn: Thank you and so am I. It’s a kind of “secluded world” that I got a hint of.

  3. Ah! What a wonderful opportunity and a great shot! Now, that is what I’d like to do…. sneak in old buildings and get some shots. You know, this kind of looks spooky. I really like it! 🙂

    Anna: Thank you! I really hope I’ll get a chance to do it one day. If you think it looks spooky now, please don’t even think of what it must have looked like before we had electricity. 🙂

    imac: Thanks to you too! Old buildings are fascinating, aren’t they?
