I like the taste and the contains by fortune cookies. Maybe I need to be faintly more spontaneous, but today it feels like I mostly worked on not being sour and whiny.
In the morning quiet and peaceful place, at the same evening/ night shot a man at this address ...
Even in Svergie we contrasts of peace and violence.
On Thursday I was on the lecturing by the jewellery artist Jorge Manilla at HDK, t was an interesting speech, I got a lot of questions in my mind and hope that I one day will have the opportunity to talk about it with Jorge himself. Both the similarities and differences in our jewelry work but also cultural issues, Mexico City and Sundsvall are two extremes that are interesting to talk about, our luggage, what they play roles in our lives, etc.
Friday evening it was a gallery event at gallery Four, Jorge was there and it was possible to ask about the jewellery and hang around there for some hours. I usually take a lot of photos but I was not in my right mood, but I took some anyway, as a viewer from the side of ... like a fly in a corner with a glass of red wine in my hand...
Take a look at Jorge Manillas website, there you can find a lot of his interesting pieces in a much better presentation then in this post, this is just a glint...
It was really really great to meet Jorge again even if it was a short once, this time. I hope and wish that I one day have the opportunity to speak more with him, this time he was a busy one. We had a plan to catch up over a coffee or a beer but the time wasn´t there this time.

I was visiting a friend and then I take part of this amazing handiwork originating in Kosovo.
This is part of a vest for more formal contexts, unfortunately I have no knowledge of these traditions and clothes, so any name on this, I unfortunately do not have access to, but a fasination of the job and the time it took to do this, I can have and appreciate!
Now I got the name at the vest; jelek i arit, which means vest in gold... search on internet and you will find a lot of nice pieces.

A graduation in the 70's, our white cat Ville, lilies of the valley and like clothes, it was fashionable at the time ... But what posture I had, phu!
My dad always photographed a lot throughout the years, mainly slides, are now scan all the pictures and then sends him over the occasional picture to me, which is incredibly fun!
Gothenburg is expanding at a very good way right now, I think, it happens a lot of new stuff that is for the better for the city as a whole, a feeling built up against it a bit more southern latitudes type à la Copenhagen feeling ...
I'm very eager to test all the new things that pop up, both in the long streets and in the city.
That it easily becomes slush in Gothenburg, we all know ...
so how nice it is, it always ends the beauty with slush.
An absolutely lovely sunny winter day here in Gothenburg!
It´s not every winter you can se people e skiing in the public parks here in the south of Sweden...but today was a skiing and walking day for a lot of people.
Me and my friend Therese took a walk in the amazing public park Slottsskogen, there you can look at penguins, seal and a lot of other animal for free, very generous of the city to have this for all of us citizens I think. Slottsskogen is close to my home and I can´t understand why I not are there more often?! it´s an lovely area and you always bump into someone you know...
We took a walk and have some catch up talk and then we end up at my favorite Japanese restaurant Nagoya at the second Long street 7. May be sushi is the right dinner when it´s cold outside, but sushi is always delicious I think and very fresh food too, the miso soup was the hot part of the dinner.
A great day when you once again got the feeling of that your own grass has the right color for you life, not necessary to look at the grass on the other side of the fence.
