I was in leisurely process of assembling some new summer banner pictures to use in the page headers for this site when my friend and fellow WordPress Wrangler Kristina S (aka Chefstomaten at Tomatsallad.nu) beat me to the draw. Her blog now has a fine new set of banners (I particularly like the jelly-fish.) [That was then. Things look a bit different there now. 😉 ]
Spurred on by Kristina’s enterprise, I got my finger out and with this entry I present my own set. The banners are set to rotate randomly everytime you refresh the page so you may not see them all for a while, but here they are in miniature for your delictation and delight.
I came across this set of dolls in the window of a basement secondhand shop in Söderköping.
The son of a friend of a friend. He was drinking through a straw and watching me very seriously as I took the picture.
This whale advertises the Natural History Museum in Gothenburg and is usually a dull rust-red. A graffitti artist has given the whale a summer holiday – complete with a cone of ice cream.
Stepping-stones – in the Botanical Gardens. I took this picture at the beginning of June. [And now have removed it from circulation – see comments.]
The shadows of fern fronds cast by a strong summer sun.
More of a late spring picture, this one, but I like the lilac flowers and the little fists of the lilac buds.
This almost abstract picture is water reflections on the side of a boat, tricked about a little in photoshop. I took this picture last summer when I was visiting Waxholmen in the Stockholm archipelago.
This is the setting sun on (Swedish) Midsummer’s Day.
And finally … a snip of the brick and whitewash facade of St Laurentii Church in Söderköping.
Which one do you like best? 🙂
I visited this page to update it for SEO and give it a featured image 10th March 2017. I also realise the conversation in the comments is a but incoherent because I have removed a couple of the spam comments I’d previously let through and responded to. (Read: made fun of.) It seemed hilarious at the time, but really it just attracted more of the same. I don’t do that any more.
