Postcard: When in Rome…or Stockholm

I’d previously discussed Lagom – that difficult-to-explain concept that Swedes live by. Extravagant displays of emotion are rare. This photograph was shot at the Stockholm Jazz festival which I’d dispatched from earlier this year. What struck me was the demeanor of the crowd. They were listening to a high energy jazz band.

Postcard: Plaza Mayor Facelift

Wandering through the vibrant Plaza Mayor in Madrid, I came across this construction site. Besides the positioning of the guys along the beam, what struck me was their construction outfits… skin tight shorts (save the one guy below with baggy pants – still topless).

Postcard: Changing Times

Two young ladies stroll down the main pedestrian drag in Riga, sporting traditional Latvian attire. This picture left me asking so many questions. Where were they coming from? Were they performers? Were they heading over to McDonalds for a quick bite?

Postcard: I’ve Got Your Back

On a trip to Lisbon, Portugal, I happened upon some sort of celebration. There were hundreds of police officers lined up in an endless sea of blue. But what I found more intriguing was the team of SWAT officers protecting the officers in blue.

Postcard: Unwritten Law

Hungary – Taken somewhere in the Buda district in Budapest, I stumbled across this police officer standing in front of a round white and red sign. There were no clear inscriptions on the round sign and I wasn’t sure what the officer was looking out for, but it definitely made for an interesting shot.
