Not as planned

First of may in Stockholm. 130 demonstrators arrested in the city. Loads of clashes between police and far left wing groups. Loads of demolition caused at a few business streets.
It proved to be a busy day. And I had planned to follow it with my camera in hand.

But things are´nt always what we plan. Today I just felt an urge to camp myself at a friends place and just socialize. Life is so full of politics that I decided that this day, even if it´s all about politics, I would have none of it.

Cycling home I remembered that I had to take a photograph. I took one of one of the intersections directing traffic through Stockholm.
Normally these roads are jampacked with cars. But I guess I was´nt the only one who wanted to get away from the real life today. See you tomorrow!

I like it the way it is...through YOUR eyes. You know, one of my most sought after photos from goodle searches is of a traffic jam I posted a very long time ago?

I tried fiddling a bit with the shutter speed but I did´nt really get a great picture I thought.

Eric: No, I did´nt know that! But I am guessing that Paris traffic jams are a bit more photogenic than Stockholm ones, even if ours can be quite depressing =)

playing around with the shutter can be fun... but in this case i think the result would not have been that good. since alex did not use any stand for his camera, the picture would have looked like a paintball fight...if you can picture that ;)

Like the shot! True, no politics for one day does wonders ;)
