One Evening in Malmö

by Nick
The appropriately named Turning Torso. Or as the Malmö people call it "uählskåadä Töohrsoohn".

Not that it will impress any of you, but standing at 190 metres, this is the tallest apartment building in Europe, and most people of Malmö are a somewhat proud of that.

King Charles X Gustav. Died 1660. Historians still debate whether he was mad or a genius.

Anyway, thanks to him the south of Sweden speaks Swedish(... kinda), and not Danish. Most Swedes - north and south - still debate over whether this was for the better or worse.

This duck was absolutely fearless of me. Don't know if I was supposed to be flattered or insulted.

Tips on how to cut the article off by the first duck, say.

Sorry, Nick, I don't quite have the patience right now to figure this out, but I did enjoy looking at the photos over at your own blog.

I came across this latest post when checking my Bloglines feeds while pondering how many photos I wanted to upload to Flickr and whether I even wanted to bother with Flickr and the limitations of their free account since I've got a free Yahoo! Plus account and they're about to roll out a big upgrade to their own photos section (they own Flickr).

Man, it's like the web is just sitting their waiting to suck all the creativity out of you. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming.... (spoken by someone who is two weeks into a mission to try out every free photo service on the web that offers first-time free prints)

Oops, sorry--really didn't mean to threadjack. Just that looking at your post got me thinking about what I was trying to do.

Glad you liked 'em. Been trying to come up with fun stuff to do for no money, and this was one of them.

Tragic how one always stays indoors when there's some free time over. Should go out more often and discover one's surroundings.

Free first-time prints? Fuck, why didn't I know of this before? Could have saved a lot of money.

Yeah, and Shutterfly is offering me another 20 free prints because I haven't been back in two weeks now. Of course, they get you on postage. (Unless you're clever enough to use a free shipping coupon code at Snapfish.)

Nick-

Use [span class="fullpost"][/span] tags around what you want to have on the follow-through page. Only use <> instead of the brackets, of course. That's all.
