Photographer's Note

There is not much to say about this photo. I was walking along a small park on Sdermalm island in Stockholm when I saw this man sitting on a bench on a low hill. I liked the trees behind him and the light, so I took a photo. Seeing it on my monitor I was happy to discover he was reading a book, instead of being absorbed by a cellphone.

There are many nice areas on Sdermalm with cobbled streets and attractive old buildings. On this particular day a month ago I had chosen, just for a change, to take a walk through one of the less interesting residential areas built about 1040 years ago. I don't usually expect many photo opportunities in such areas, but if the weather is fine I always take my camera, just in case.
