I am sitting down to write this blog with a glass of O’boy while listening to Peter Bjorn & John’s album “Seaside Rock”. I admit to being a big swedophile, and being half-Swedish I think I have no need to justify this.
My Mum is currently in Sweden to attend her Confirmation reunion, so I thought I would have a look back at some of the photos I had taken on my previous trips.
When I was younger I used to travel regularly to see my Mormor, Morfar and Uncle. My mum’s family come from a remote part of northern Sweden, the house is surrounded by trees and the nearest shop is two miles away. As a kid it was great, I could go off on an adventures in the forest and entertain myself for hours building dens and destroying anthills or picking berries with Mormor.
All these great memories are before I started taking photography seriously. I will go back one-day, soon I hope, and make sure I document all the things I love about Sweden. Along with all these new adventures; stay at the Ice Hotel, photograph Bears in the wild, spend a night in the Tree Hotel, stroll along the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo walking tour, visit Ale’s stones in Skane, take a boat out in Stockholm’s archipelago.
Where would you like to revisit to recapture memories?
