Bloom of The Cherry Trees

The King’s Tree Garden (Kungsträdgården) is located in central Stockholm and during late April and May month the cherry trees are in bloom. This park is available to the public during all seasons of the year and offer things such as open-air concerts and events in the summer and an ice rink during winters. There is also a number of cafes, art galleries and restaurants.

My photos does not do it justice, it is spectacular. Clicking on the photos will link you to my Flickr page where the larger version is available for viewing.

We, myself and the love of my life, dropped Cristiano (our son) off at his grandparents and headed in to metropolitan Stockholm. I wanted to try this Nikon D3000 and to sum up my experience: I understand that I am functioning as a support for the camera when I am looking through the small hole to photograph but I found it difficult to take what I would consider good photos when not viewing through a large display like with our old camera. It will take some getting use to and it is going to be interesting learning.

Stockholm City Architecture and Statues

I have this fascination for architecture and statues which I have no explanation for… I just find myself attracted to the beauty of it. Many buildings in the City have incredible architecture and I love my photography taking strolls there, I always discover something which is new to my eyes. The camera I am using is old but I believe my love for photography will drive me in to buying a new one this year. I have my mind set on a new model from either Nikon or Canon. The photos below were randomly taken by me during different visits.

Ventured The Old Town

Visited a shop in The Old Town, they had these amazing blades. One in particular caught my attention, it was a Scorpio, taking pic next time. The entire reason why we left for the City in the first place was to take photos but A forgot his camera & we ended up just lunching & shopping instead.

The Old Town has incredible architecture & architectures happens to be one of my favorite objects when photographing. Wasn’t however I who needed to take pictures this time, A needed to for a project in photography course.
