The story behind the image
In June 1999 Petra and I were invited to a two-day conference by Ericsson’s mobile phone unit. We had not been to Sweden before, and we were stunned by the activities on the street during summer. Having said that, it was midsummer, the peak of summer for Swedes. We were exploring the city after the evening event, and while it was quite late – probably 11 pm – the blue hour was still in full swing.
I shot this photo from Torkel Knutssonsgatan opposite of the city center. I estimated the exposure time, put the camera to a solid place on the railing and used the self exposure timer to reduce camera shake.
The result: A very nice image of Stockholm’s skyline during the blue hour at midsummer. Lovely.
