Sculptures of Stockholm, Sweden

Posted on 1st March 2015 in explored, wandering

I always wish I knew or could remember the characters and stories that belong with each sculpture I come across and photograph. I know that a lot of them have information at their base… Perhaps it’s this public art that really makes a person feel like their walking with history.

As I wandered the ancient streets of Stockholm, Sweden I came across these pieces. Some were sculptures, some were probably moldings, and others were maybe pounded our of iron or copper. I distinctly remember saying to myself that I was going to focus on capturing as many arch details above doors as I could.

I’d love to hear if you recognize any of these in the comments below, and perhaps sharing the stories of them.

Acropolis of Athens, Greece

Posted on 29th December 2013 in adventure, architecture, explored

Taking myself back to last year to the land of sun, where I was sweeping through the streets of Athens, Greece admiring all the graffiti. It completely blew me away the amount of graffiti there, and it was hard to not get overwhelmed with so much. It can get very distracting just hunting for great works. I’ve done a few posts already on the graffiti I found (part 1, part 2).

However, I did a mythological tour too. I can’t imagine going to Athens and not… I found the hottest day possible to do my journey through Acropolis (ok, all the days were hot in Athens). It was much to my surprise to find out that unfortunately once I got within the gates of Acropolis, I wasn’t allowed to take my shirt off! I can still feel the exhaustion.

This is what I found.
