29. Varberg, Streets in a small Swedish town

Varberg is a small town on the Swedish west coast that's very popular as a tourist destination during the summer. I attended an event there during a weekend earlier this summer and took the opportunity to take some photos. Pictures from 2014.

30. Atlantic City, Skyline

I personally think that Atlantic City are an underrated place. There should be great potential for the city to grow and become prosperous. Unfortunately all I read are how bad it's going for all the casinos there, and the city in general. Anyhow, here's eight pictures of the skyline, if it can be called that. Pictures from 2011.

32. Varberg, Outside Varberg fästning

Thank you so much for those kind words!

---

Apart from being a popular summer destination for domestic tourism, Varberg are known for it's old fortress. It's just a five minute walk from the city center, so of course I took a walk over there too. Pictures from 2014.

35. Stockholm, From the road

Thanks! I try to keep the posts as varied as possible.

---

To make up for a few days absence and lack of new posts I'll post three in-a-row.

---

The first set are photos taken from the car while going through Stockholm. Nothing exceptional but maybe they show something of the city that's usually not seen in photos. Pictures from 2014.

37. Los Angeles, Hollywood Boulevard

The famous Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. This is actually one of the harder places I've taken photos at. Mann's Chinese Theater (which doesn't feature in any of these eight) are probably the hardest building I've ever encountered to take good photos at. The streets weren't so much easier, there was always something blocking the shot. This was when I had just bought my camera though, so maybe I'd have better luck if I re-visit. Pictures from 2010.

Great pictures!

About Mobile, it's a nice city but yes it is a ghost town. Most people blow through Mobile on their way to the Alabama Coast. (Which has really nice beaches I might add)

If you're on the Gulf Coast again, you should visit a town called Ocean Springs in Mississippi. It's really pretty!

38. San Francisco, Pier 39

I actually did visit Ocean Springs, or more correctly, I drove through a few times between my hotel in St. Martin and the sights in Biloxi. I have a few road pictures of Ocean Springs though. Took a drive along the beach there. I most definitely would like to visit this region again some time!

Mobile should do what most American cities should do and build apartment blocks around Downtown to get some much needed life into the area. The architecture was nice and if only there were more people on the streets it would have been a very nice little town, if you can call a city of over 200.000 people a town. It felt like a town though.

---

No Gulf Coast this time, instead we go to the West Coast again.

Probably the biggest tourist trap in all of America, but I still love this place! Pictures from 2010.

Not all Tourist traps are bad! But it's not so much the shoreline of Ocean Springs that's pretty but the historical center.


Anyways, go north from Cali. Oregon and Washington are both amazingly beautiful states!

39. Miami, Downtown

I missed the historical center of Ocean Springs then. A reason to go back!

Seattle and Vancouver seems to be interesting cities to visit one day. But since it's so far away it will most likely be other cities and regions that attracts more whenever the chance comes to travel that far.

---

I didn't venture into the actual downtown Miami so these are taken from the edge of downtown. American downtowns tend to be rather boring at street level, regardless of the height of the buildings. Pictures from 2012.

40. London, Trafalgar Square at evening

I spent several hours just sitting and looking at the life and people here and waiting for it to turn dark outside so I could take some night shots. These are however from when it was still bright outside. Pictures from 2011.

It can be hard to believe that these pictures are taken less than an hour north of New York City. Pictures from 2011.
