Two Saturdays ago when I went down into the harbor area to look after … my old working place, Stena Voyager – after my 30 minutes by the gate and photos of a legend … I so let my little camera work in the area.
What hit me was that the whole harbor area was so clean – even it was industrial was there no litter what so ever around – even if I didn’t like the place where Voyager was laid to rest because of all the metal scrapping around him, was it so tidy and clean.
I decided to take the shortcut back to town center over the railway yard – and the old railways station, that is all closed up now for years. They have moved the railway station to a bit outside town center, to make the journey much quicker.
Before they have to take the train into the town center and then drive it out again, not very efficient. The rails are still in use for freight to/from the harbor and the industries in the area.
The old station house is a beautiful building and it’s a pity that nothing is done with it. I think the bus drivers have some kind of rest area in there, at least they had. One of those things I would love to save if I had the money … but I didn’t win on Friday. I would have turned the old station into a hostel.
Not very practical short cut I took over the rails and when I came to the old station house I couldn’t get out of the area, so I have to walk back and take the walking bridge over the yard.
Had a new SD card in my camera, but no spare batteries – so of course my camera went dead and there was so much more to put it against. So I went back 2 days later … just loved all the details around the area – not a pretty place in itself, but looking through my camera is became interesting and beautiful in it’s boldness and roughness.
While looking for object to put my camera at … I heard somebody shouting; Hello .. first I thought is was some security guard – but it was 3 great Danish boys out on an adventure; David, Matti and Mark.
Two were from Denmark and the oldest from Greenland, they live in Hillerød – very pretty town (slightly smaller than Landskrona) on the east coast of Denmark and they told me that they had came across with David’s dad in his boat for a couple of days. Matti, the tallest boy, did some magic with some pennies. He was very good at it. One moment one – then next three. We spend about 30 min together and I got a chance to practice my Danish, I was amazed how much I remembered. They walked me back to the town center where David’s dad was waiting for them. Very nice company and so pleasant boys.
So on Thursday will I go aboard the Stena Voyager for the last time ever – I know it will be emotional for me – but I also know that HE will get a good write up about in the local press and that means a descent farewell. Somebody showed an interest in him even in end – and I was one of them.
“There is a light at the end of the tunnel…
hopefully it’s not a freight train!”
This a great tune, “Frieght Train” …. with a group called “Headwater” from Vancouver, Canada. Found it by accident on Soundcloud. Just brilliant, love the fun lyrics and its such a happy tune.
