  1. Hi Anders. Three nice takes on the theme. Lovely old cobbled street in the first shot. I love old villages like that. Looks like a good walk along the parapet at Helsingborg. Nice little statue of Poppe.

  3. Nice takes on the theme, Anders! Cobble streets make nice shot and yours is not an exception... I would like to walk along that parapet and look at the sea now and then... Love sculptures, either they are big or small...

  6. Three lovely photos. I read a Swedish criminal book recently centered in Helsingborg but cannot remember the title. A very beautiful town.

  7. Cobblestone road, very unique.
    Your beach seems very quiet, nice shot.
    Meeting a comedian on the street, not a bad idea.

  8. I too would love to meander around that village Anders. It looks very inviting. A bit like "I wonder what's on the other side of this hill."

    That is some walk along the beach in your home town. I can imagine a nice cool breeze egging you on.

    As for the bronze of Nils Poppe, awesome.
