In Sweden we visited Malmö and Stockholm during the Baltic tour. The weather was damp and cold the day we strolled through Malmö, but the sun was shining in Stockholm and the Swedes came out to enjoy it.
This is Valencia's own Santiago Calatrava's Turning Torso in Malmö. The tallest building in Scandanavia, where the windows don't even open.
Finland was the following stop on the Baltic whirlwind tour. We hit Porvoo and Helsinki and all the sights in between over the course of one day.
During the travel piece I worked on in the Baltic capitals, my first stop was Tallinn, Estonia. I arrived via Barcelona after photographing a wedding the night before and then missed the car waiting for me to take me around the city and instead got on a bus.... disaster... disaster.... Long story short, I ran around old town Tallinn trying to connect with people and get images in focus before I took off some three hours later for St. Petersburg. It was nice to go through my take again for this post to see what I saw.. in my head it is all such a blur. I did love the blankets on the chairs for outdoor seating, in case of a chill, and elk sausage: yum.
Patriotic pants, papaya picked off the tree at home. Kiholo Bay baby goat. Jimena, palms. Checking out big goat. Sun bum, Polulu horse. Small prints. Tourists. Dream home. Tourists, Polulu. Veda. Honu. Buddies.
Morocco is so visually inspiring. The people, the architecture, the light! I have had these photos laying around in the digital wasteland somewhere from a quick trip this summer. More photos from Morocco here, here, and an essay from Fez here. We are missing our friend's traditional Moroccan wedding next weekend in his hometown due to me being very, very pregnant. These photos will have to do.... for now.
