Good vs bad?

This picture by Magnum founder Robert Capa is probably the one item in Moderna Museet in Stockholm that got to me the most.

Just after the Allies had liberated the town, a French woman who had had a baby by a German soldier was punished by having her head shaved. Here she is seen being marched home. What got me most is that many people around the lady are smiling, enjoying her humiliaition. Who kows this woman just happened to fall in love with a German guy (not because, but despite the fact that he was)? Whatever the story was, this shows that the ‘good’ can be just as bad too.

Stockholm

The past few days I have spent in Stockholm and despite the cold (at one point -15 to -20 celcius during the day) I love the city! Here are a few pictures that made me become a fan and why I would love to go back this summer:
