Rainbow colored park bench

Rainbow colored park bench

Somebody painted this park bench in rainbow colors. I am totally loving it. I mean – it’s not just ‘painted’ but actually somebody took the time and effort to either draw little drops, or maybe the paint was just of the right fluidity to draw the drop traces itself. However it was done – now it’s a great art piece.

Seen somewhere near Bernauer Strasse.

Malmö Coastline and Turning Torso

Malmö Coastline and Turning Torso

Near the Västra Hamnen area you will not only find nice beaches “Ribersborgsstranden” (Ribersborg Beach) – also a reserved beach area for dogs – but also green. Thousands of square meters of nicely cut grass to sit on, have a picnic, spend time with friends and family. Or just go for a walk and enjoy the view to the baltic sea, the Öresund Bridge and the Malmö skyline – like for example – the Turning Torso.

Near Västra Hamnen you can find different marinas – or is it a marina? It looks more like a public parking for boats to me – but anyways… Boats. In the distance you can see the Öresund Bridge.

The picture is taken from the pedestrian bridge connecting Propellergatan

Classic Cars in the Port of Helsinki

Classic Cars in the Port of Helsinki

Waiting for the boarding of the ferry to Stockholm we were kind of lucky. Next to us – or actually all around us a number of Classic Cars were waiting with us. Buicks, Chevrolets, Cadillacs, a few Ford Mustang – all there. Beautiful.

Doing a little research we found out that the Classic Cars were heading towards a Classic Car festival in Sweden – the Power Big Meet car show. With about 25.000 cars attending the Power Big Meet is the world’s largest classic car show. Find out more on this page at Wikipedia or on the car show’s homepage at bigmeet.com.
