Photographer's Note

I took this yesterday morning as I was again on my way on foot to my dentist. This was just as I had left the Old Town (Gamla stan) and was entering the Vasa Bridge (Vasabron) towards Stockholm's northern mainland.

I liked the look of the worker in the bright vest talking on the phone during a break from restoration works of a large building outside the photo to the right. I also thought he was well placed against a background showing some of the city's most important buildings.

To the left is the Prime Minister's official residence (not his office) in a former private palace from the 19th century. Next to it is the Foreign Ministry, a former palace from the 18th century.

The church at the back is Jakobs kyrka (Saint Jacob's church), inaugurated in 1643, about 60 years after the work had started.

The large building in the middle is the Royal Opera inaugurated in 1782. To the right, across the water behind the construction workers's barracks, is a glimpse of the Parliament.

With some luck and the right equipment you could catch a salmon in these waters. Trouts are even more likely to be found here, or at least you could hope for a perch. There is a lot of fish in the waters of central Stockholm, and the water is quite clean so they are perfectly edible.
