Nothing says summer like midsommar in Sweden. Since we’re ending April and springing into summertime shortly, I had to share one of my favorite photos from 2007. This particular year, I spent the summer living in Stockholm, which is one of my favorite cities in the world. The travel POTM™ is a photo I took of the island Stadsholmen from my neighboring district of Södermalm. The Tall Ships had just arrived for that year’s version of the famed race, and I captured a gorgeous event moment of the skyline when looking at the ships. To this day, this photo is still the background wallpaper on my iPhone.
October’s Travel Photo of the Month (POTM™) is a favorite of mine, although it is “not a photo opportunity.” It was taken in London in March 2006, and since then, I’ve occasionally seen this stenciled phrase in random spots. I believe it’s been attributed to Banksy, a UK artist turned activist, who’s graffiti is now viewed as art. Regardless, this month’s POTM™ is certainly a fantastic photo opp.
