S:t Johannesgatan from the other direction

Another view of S:t Johannesgatan. Indeed, many are the bicyclists that roll over these cobblestones each day.
Just to the left of where I'm standing is a fine café, Lyckan. Quite uniquely for a café in Uppsala, they offer home-made edibles, both of the sweet and lunchy kind.

Blogging from the air

Vättern and its island Visingsö just passed by the window. I'm posting this picture from a plane heading for London. We have wifi on board and it's free, as it should be. Good work, Norwegian!

S:t Johannesgatan and Google+

S:t Johannesgatan in September
Thanks to the advent of Google+, a whole new era of photography inspiration, motivation, learning and sharing has begun. At least for me. So, from now on, I will be posting mainly on Google+. But to there is no need to fear for the future of this blog, since Google appear to be integrating these services, as well as Picasa. What you post on G+ will most probably have an easy way of appearing on your blog, too. Interesting rumors on the subject suggest the brands Blogger and Picasa will be swallowed by G+.  I feel no apprehension to this, it is important to evolve with the times, and so must these information structures. The advantages of posting on G+ versus on a traditional blog are, when it comes to reaching out to the world, immense.
The advantages of this blog is that it is a fixed, easy-to-find location and provides a more concise history of posts and comments. And a nice graphical framing and layout, why not :). So there are still reasons to hold on to it.
Are you on Google+? Add me to your circles!

Training Bus

This may seem like an ordinary bus, but it is part of a rescue scenario at the Uppsala firemen's training facility. Yes, it is resting on its roof.
