Saturday Photo Excursion

I was bored this morning and felt like some photography, but I just couldn’t think of anything to shoot, especially since it was around 10 and the light was very bright and sharp.

So I decided to do some location scouting instead. I packed my camera bag and went for a slow bike ride, more or less randomly around Eskilstuna. Tried to go where I had never gone before.

First I came across Eskilstuna Art Museum. Although I had read about it at work I hadn’t really understood where it was.

At the entrance there was this cool piece of art1:

It is made out of sheets of glass stacked on top of each other, and I’m guessing that the naked girl visible in the block is cut out of all the sheets.

Later on I found a train yard with loads of old rusty engines and wagons. But I didn’t bother taking any pics in the harsh light. Instead I’ll go back some evening.

Then I found this fellar (?) fluttering about. He was unusually patient when he finally settled down though.

Well, it wasn’t that much, but at least I got some fresh air… 🙂

1) I don’t take to art very easily so this should be considered quite the compliment.

    Fina bilder David! Och ja, det var ett läckert konstverk :)Jo, dagredigeringen gör tabeller, ekonomisidor och lite större jobb, typ “så går du ner fem kilo på fem dagar”-grejer. Men det händer ofta att vi på natten får rita om sådana sidor eftersom det händer saker. Det varierar väldigt mycket från natt till natt.
