Fotoeins Friday: Stockholm call to summer

From the vantage point of neighbouring Skeppsholmen island, the Old Town in Stockholm beckons softly to the visitor with visual promises of pointed roofs, colourful facades, and narrow passageways. Summer days are very long and there’s little “dark of night” at these high latitudes; there’s no point going to sleep when the sun pops back up at 330 in the morning. But wherever you are in Stockholm, there’s always something new to find in either open spaces or hidden corners, by day or at night.

I made the photo above on 26 June 2008 with the Canon EOS450D (XSi), EF-S 18-55 IS kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/500s, f/5.6, ISO200, and 35mm focal-length (56mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-5xj.

Getting streaky in Auckland

On a cool but quiet early-spring evening, I walked down to Princes Wharf to have a look at Auckland’s skyline. Here on the waterfront, a real buzz was all around with a lot of activity from nearby bars and restaurants, the Hilton Auckland, and a number of ferries heading in and out of the central ferry facility. These are my two favourite aspects of urban-living: vigorous night-life, and easy open access to the water.
