Autumn apple photo.

Photo taken at Stiftsgården; the Diocese House in skeleton, or Skelleftea, in northern Sweden. This apples taste absolute fresh, not as the green apples one buy in the store. And they are very aromatic because of the bright midsummer nights up here in the north. You never got that taste from southern apples. Never!!!

This photo were taken with my smartphone camera.

Evening shot

Photo: Evening by Skellefteå river. Soon it will be snow on the ground and the river will froze.

Apps with neat image
I wish I had a smartphone camera that can take evening shots with neat image. Or is there any apps with that function?

September picture

Last summer day
I walked a path along Byske river after work yesterday. It was a sunny and beautiful day, 13 C.
When I woke up this morning, the ground was frozen.

Smartphone or SLR- camera.
I don't belong to those that always carries their SLR- cameras everywhere they go. I mostly take my pictures with my smartphone camera, like the one below.

An image of autumn

Today it's raining and I found  proof that the autumn season has begun. I wish I could go to the Scandic Mountains with my camera and shot all the colours of the falls.
But for that I need time - and a better camera.

Meatballs as ammunition

.I use to look at The New Yorker. cartoons. Recently i find a cartoon showing romans using a spoon as a catapult. On the catapult was a meatball as ammunition. But, having the smallest smartphone in the world, I could not see the text, not matter how I tried.

Instead, I have created a cartoon on the same them with my own looking at the subject.

not anti- Islam movie

To change the subject from a trip by rail to what is happening in Libya is not difficult - It's just about changing tracks.
The whole day I have heard that the attack was caused by an anti-Islam movie. Then I read in Washington Post that the attack in Libya was a revenge for the killing of an Al Quida leader. When I heard about the movie, I though that the attack was more looking like Al Quida. And i was right.

We are traveling back to our hometown, my wife&and I, by the new built bothnia railway link.
The speed is at most 175
km/h, but we can still see all wonderful views that we are passing on the way: lakes, rivers. green fields and distant mountains - & deep, dark forest of course.

The stone city

Stone City Festival in Sundsvall, a town in the southern part of northern Sweden. The city's wooden buildings burned after a fire 1888. After this the houses were built by stones.
Travelling here by fast train takes about 3,5 hours from Stockholm. 
But, of course, this train is a slow train compared to the Japanese one. I rather got time to see the nature, which it lot of here.

About political audition

Found an Interesting audition with possible presidential candidate for GOP elections 2016. But it would be interesting to look further into the future to see how the President would have tackle the economic crises. And the banks that gave bigger loans than people could handle.
