I have just time enough to visit the three elderly ladies when travelling to work on public transport. There’s a short bus connection at Uddevalla Kampenhoff from getting off the No 5 from Äsperöd and changing to the mainline 860 for Trollhättan. I can walk across to the river where it runs past the Bohuslän museum and greet the ladies.
Sometimes it’s been cloudy and raining, other times there’s been sun, but I always value the tranquility of my short walk. You go past the fruit and flower seller (usually making a purchase if going home) and then along past the avenue of horse chestnuts masking the facade of the bus station before you get to the river.
I rarely take a camera to work and so it’s out with my phone and a quick panoramic shot from the riverbank – being careful not to slip into the river from the wet wooden quay. I’ve got the free app Snapseed on my phone and so I usually edit the picture on the bus. I run the picture through the drama filter and add tonal contrast to get the punchy, vivid and sometimes unreal effects in the pictures.
I think adding a little drama is the least I can do for them. They are currently resting from a summer taking visitors and townspeople to the resorts like Gustafberg down the fjord.
