Skywatch Friday: Stockholm 2006 (#1 of 2)

Posted by
sithenah (Greater Manchester/Cheshire, United Kingdom) on 21 November 2008 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Taken 15th June 2006 in Stockholm, Sweden.

The sails belong to the af-Chapman

It entered service as the Dunboyne in 1888 and once carried passengers between Ireland and Australia. During World War II it was a Swedish Navy barracks ship.

Since 1949 it has been used as a youth hostel.

Shortly after this picture was taken, it was towed away for renovation, but returned in 2008.

The colors are very soft looking and I like the ship partially in the photo too.

Personally I would have liked less sky and more ship...
