Updates 2 April 2008

Today, I've added new pictures. One photo for each day for the dates 2-21 February 2008.

I've added a bit of explanatory text to 27 January 2008.

I swapped the puzzle picture for 29 January 2008 with one of my own pictures, with a different cut, and I edited the text.

Yes, yes, I'm aware that the posting date doesn't fit - that's because I've been fiddling around with the dates to get a chronological order and to get the blog archive tree to look tidier.

21 February 2008

More tube train ads. Here, one of the Swedish commercial TV channels has chosen to display an ad on the doors of a tube train. They will start showing new episodes of Stargate and the text reads 'The gate opens Fridays at 21:00' (hours). And when the doors slid open, you did actually enter 'through the gate'.

In Stockholm (Sweden) the advertising agencies can hire advertising space on the tube trains. In this case, Interflora had hired an entire wagon.

The lovely staircase in the previous picture, and some of the flowers, can be found inside the Victorian style green houses.

Kew Gardens is where I saw, for the very first time, a bright pink chestnut.

Ever had a really close look at the chestnut flowers? This is what they look like.

When I saw this chestnut tree I realised this is what a tree should look like when it's been allowed to grow freely instead of being cut back all the time.

Kew Gardens, London

In April 2007, I visited Kew Gardens in London for the very first time, in connection with a h2g2 meet. The weather was absolutely gorgeous - sunny and warm like a summerday.

The next couple of pictures, mostly of flowers, will be from Kew Gardens. You will, yet again, experience my fascination for close ups.

This is, by far, the oddest graffiti I've come across. What it says? Ice cold Russian archeologists. And in a very neat hand writing too.

This cat belongs to one of my colleagues, and it's a Norwegian Forest cat.

Those ear tufts makes it look a little like a European lynx.

And that intent look in her eyes is because she's crouched down in an 'about to attack' position and is focusing on her target.

This is a picture of an Amnesty poster against female circumcision - subtle yet telling.
