Photographer's Note

I was walking along the quay on the northwestern side of S鐰ermalm island, facing Lake M鄟aren, when I saw these men having a chat on a barge. I liked the colours of their jackets and the view of Stockholm's City Hall in the background, so I took a photo.

It was only when looking at the photo on my monitor that I could fully appreciate the colours of their load and the pattern made by the square wooden poles.

The City Hall, opened in 1923, is possibly the best known building in Stockholm. It looks very close but there is actually a fairly wide area of water between it and the foreground.

The buildings in the background are also further away from the City Hall than they may seem. To the left is a luxury hotel, and what may look like scrap metal in a junk yard to the right is the Waterfront Congress Centre, opened about 10 years ago. It is sometimes suggested to be the city's ugliest modern building.

The Map: view will show you approximately where I took this photo.

There is a slightly related photo in the WS.
