Alexander The Great..

Stockholm City, December 2011.


After having wanted to photograph a swan all summer, who would´ve thought

that I was going to run into one during christmas.


I met my old bird lady while she was feeding her birds at this little pond which is connected

to the sea. I never thought that I would run into her again, but I did.

I asked her if it was Daniel that she was feeding (she had told me about this swan she called

Daniel before, and I captured them "on the go" so to speak) She looked at me with suprise in

her eyes as I actually remembered his name, and she replied;

- No, this is Alexander, Daniels father. She said in a proud voice.


We talked for a while, and the swan really put on a show for her, allowing me to take some

pictures of this beautiful creature. She was very happy with the fact that the snow and ice havent

arrived yet. The swans use to get stuck in the ice and freeze to death, and I cant even imagine

how hard this sweet little lady would take such a thing.
