BIRTHDAY CONCERT

Now it so happened that the Swedish Army orchestra was giving a concert outside the Swedish Academy on Thursday. It made for a perfect, festive birthday concert.

FOTOGRAFISKA IN STOCKHOLM

We visited the photographic museum in Stockholm. It is a great place to see both classic and contemporary photography.  

Lili really enjoyed an exhibit of horses in photography and we also saw three horse films related to it. One was about a Swedish show jumper Peter Fredriksson and his horse All In. The film showed his training of the horse. The film was made before the Rio Olympics wher he went on to win the show jumping silver!

Some of the amazing horse photos we saw. The bottom one is of a horse diving into water off a 20 meter platform. Yikes!

There was also an exhibit of photos by the iconic Irving Penn. What a feast for the eyes!
