how to slay a dragon

St George must have been good at it. He got himself a few statues, showing his skills. If you walk Östra Långgatan (Old Town) toward Köpmanbrinken, you can hardly miss the Stockholm version of him. In daylight, that is. Nighttime is a different story. A few watts would help, but they're not there, so flash will have to do.

St Göran är väl bekant för de flesta men hur många har sett statyn i mörkret? För mörkt är det vid Köpmanbrinken där han står. En lampa eller två vore trevligt...

A darn good shot. Considering the circumstances it's great. I tried as well without any measurable success.
