43. Stockholm, Gamla stan

I don't like being patriotic or nationalistic but I can't help to think that my hometown of Stockholm are one of the most beautiful cities in the world! If you live in Europe and haven't visited the city yet, then you really should. There's no excuses! If you don't live in Europe then you should of course also come and visit. But it's understandable if a city that's a little off geographically compared to other major European cities aren't at top of the list. It's worth the time and effort though!

Here's some pictures taken in the Old Town (Gamla Stan) of Stockholm. Pictures from 2014.

45. Stockholm, Djurgårdsfärjan

More Stockholm.

Pictures featuring the Djurgårdsfärjan (Djurgården Ferry) in Stockholm. It's actually a public transport ferry that travels between parts of the city, but it's also a sight in itself. Both the boats traveling back and forth but also the views you can get if you travel on them. Pictures from 2014.

47. Stockholm, Slussen

The last post from Stockholm for now.

If Gamla Stan shows the beauty of the city then Slussen shows the less beautiful part of the inner-city. And to think that there are people who fight with their life to preserve this eyesore... Hopefully this area will look much better in 10-15 years after a planned complete re-development of the area are finished. Pictures from 2014.

48. Venice Beach, Preachers

Thank you for liking and commenting the pictures!
I still have some 1200 unposted pictures from Stockholm. But those will be for later.

Now continuing to something completely else...

These guys are funny with their signs containing bible verses and threats towards less righteous people, like myself. I've encountered them in many places in the US but the group in Venice are by far the largest. Pictures from 2010.

It sure does!
One of the most underrated cities in Europe. I think that's at least partly due to it's geographical position compared to the largest population centers in Europe.

50. San Diego, Military ships

The most memorable feature of San Diego were definitely all the military ships everywhere, so here's eight pics featuring them. The last picture are of a normal fishing boat, I think, but there's a military ship in the background at least. Pictures from 2010.

51. Atlantic City, Driving into town

From now on I will try with only be five photos in each post. I think eight may have been too much. I know from when I watch photo threads myself that after a few posts I tend to start scrolling faster and faster.

These five photos feature the signage and views from the highway while driving towards Atlantic City. Pictures from 2011.

55. Stockholm, Politicians

Since it's election day in Sweden, todays theme will be politics. "Election huts" or "Polling huts" are a common Swedish cultural thing during election campaigns. These small huts pop up everywhere during the last weeks of the campaign and allow representatives from the different parties to talk to people and hand out fliers.

The man in the center of the last three pictures are the leader of The Liberal Party in Sweden. These pictures are however taken during the European Parliament election campaign in may earlier this year and not during the current national election campaign that ends today. Pictures from 2014.

56. Atlantic City, Away from the Boardwalk

Sad to hear that yet another casino in Atlantic City will close (Trump Plaza). No casino or Boardwalk in any of these pictures neither though. Pictures from 2011.
