Architecture of Stockholm, Sweden

Posted on 28th January 2015 in architecture

When I arrived in Stockholm in early September all I had was my flip-flops. I had worn holes in my shoes in Budapest and left them on the corner for some lucky soul in need of some red skate shoes.

When I got off the plane, it was cold. Then it rained. My first order of business was to find myself some leather soles.

I think it’s clear in the photographs how brisk the city was, which I really appreciated in it. It led to the clean feeling, the put together, well kempt style of the city. Further, the giant stone buildings, sculptures, and details all around the city made me feel like I was walking along Viking turf.

Nordic.

Why not cure this severe wanderlust with a collection of landscapes I’ve shot from 2012 to 2014… That’ll do the trick, right?

Many of these photographs have had a whole fotoblog dedicated to them. If you do a search on the left you should be able to find more about the location. Some of these I haven’t released until now.

Please don’t hesitate to ask questions about any of the journeys in the comments below or email me. I love to share stories.

Statues of Budapest, Hungary

Posted on 5th January 2015 in explored, wandering

My brother got home from Europe today: Barcelona via a three day stopover in New York, USA. He has been gone a little over a year, and when I picked him up from the airport one of the first things he said as we were driving around was that Canada just can’t compare to Europe. I asked him what he meant and he pointed to Richmond City Hall as we drove past. He mentioned that, for example, the Barcelona City Hall building would have been around for at least a few houndred years, and sits as a glorious feat of architecture that tourist flock to from all over the world. “You just can’t compare.” I hardly noticed I had been passing the Richmond City Hall.

It is one of my wishes that throughout my ongoing European study of architecture and street art that we can share and learn about what history really means. That it’s not just a dusty text book taking up space, it’s carved in stone with expert hands hardened long before the age of the machine.
