stealth

A modern naval ship by the Old town. If the stealth doesn't work you can always send out the odd canoe as a distraction. I have no idea if it is a Swedish or foreign ship, but I gather we Swedes are quite good at stealth technology.

It certainly doesn't look stealthy, but I guess it has something to do with radars and sonars and other -ars.

I am still working on your church photo. Not much time for snapping these days. But it's coming.

It reminds me of a ship in a James Bond movie with Pierce Brosnan, probably Die Another Day.

Hakycon: Other "arses"?You're probably right. Looking forward to the church! But remember, above all it should be enjoyable being a photo blogger. Take your time and take care!

Greg: It certainly looks like something out of a Bond movie. Saw the latest the other day. It was so and so.

I agree it should be fun Photo blogging. Swedes and stealth technology sounds more like Star Trek.

This is a really fun juxtaposition of old and new. I like the little man (well, he looks little) standing on the deck.

The old town looks absolutely beautiful!

Yes, it is the Swedish Royal Navy corvette Helsingborg that is making a week-long visit in Stockholm. Thanks BPC!
