|Stockholm City Hall|
I arrived in Stockholm on a late afternoon, but it was hard to tell what time of the day was. During the summer there is light almost all the time, bright and strong when the sun is up, pastel-like during the night. It made it difficult to sleep; it also gave me somehow a great amount of energy that made me want to be outside and explore. This was a city asking to be photographed, from the old gingerbread-like houses in the Old Square in Gamla Stan, to Palaces sitting by the water and museums built to display a perfectly preserved old vessel or old houses from rural Sweden, all enveloped in blue skies and framed by water. The city spreads over several islands, part of the larger Stockholm Archipelago. Two of the most important ones are Stadsholmen where Gamla Stan (or The Old Town) is located and Djurgården that hosts many museums and an amusement park.

Like my friend N., many years before, I found my own escape in Stockholm.
