Once or twice a week, I take a salsa dancing lesson at La Isla. Friday after the lesson, I stayed on for a few hours to get some practice. It's fun but also quite a bit of work. Here I am dancing with a nice girl named Camilla.
Another close-up of raindrops for your viewing pleasure. I find it easy to take close-ups with my nifty little Nikon CoolPix 4500. It took me a while to figure it out, but now I can get a good shot almost every time. Ordinary everyday objects take on an entirely different, otherworldly character when viewed in this way.

Climing at Klätterverket last night. Here, I'm just hanging from the rope to give my arms a rest and to pose for the photo. I was going up the green route at this point; a bit later, I tackeled the purple route to the right. The purple route is on the edge where the wall splits into two sections; the right section has more of an overhang. The grips and their placement require a lot of hanging out to the side. It's tricky but fun. I cheated a bit and used my knee for balance at one point.
A wide shot of the same wall. The girl in this photo is climbing the aforementioned purple route. Fun!

Is Stockholm a beautiful city, or what? I snapped this photo from the subway (blue line) as it passed over the bridge from Gamla Stan to Slussen. The photo is of Gamla Stan, looking back toward the Northeast. In the center of the photo, you can see Tyska Kyrkan ("The German church"). Near the left side, just peeking up above the rooftoops, the spire of Storkyrkan ("The big church") is also visible. For information about Gamla Stan's churches (and more photos), take a look here.
