Yesterday I finally finished working through my photographs from my trip to Ystad last September.  The final count is 430 of Ystad, Skåne and a detour to Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, but I had a couple of hundred more that I didn't keep.  This is the most photos I've taken of anywhere.  I wanted to document as much of what I saw as possible, but then again Ystad is amazingly photogenic anyway.

I've posted some of the pictures at my Tumblr blog, and a good few on Panoramio.  The hard task now is deciding which I want to have printed for my walls.  This is a strong contender:

as well as this:

Ultimately, though, it's just lovely to have so many reminders of a great trip.  I hope I'll be back there soon!

It's been good to get through all the photos, but now I really need to get back to writing.  I've signed up to pimp my beloved fandom on [ profile] smallfandomfest, so I have to have something ready by April 30th.  I also need to get on with The Assignment and The Men From Stockholm.  The longer I leave them, the guiltier I feel, but on the other hand I'm relishing the thought of all this writing!

I spend a lot of time on trains.  This is what happens when your nearest and dearest are scattered all over the country.  However, it's not a bad thing; I can spend the time writing and surfing the net on the train's wi-fi, so the time isn't wasted.  I also have the rest of a book by Jeremy Paxman to read.

I just finished reading Henning Mankell's Return of the Dancing Master.  It was so good that I couldn't put it down, especially towards the end.  I'm really glad I've discovered Mankell, he's a fantastic writer and so far has made several of my train journeys go a lot faster than they would have done otherwise.  Last month I read Firewall, which is number 8 in the Wallander series, and I'm also looking forward to starting Before the Frost, which features Linda Wallander and the protagonist of Return of the Dancing Master, Stefan Lindman, alongside Kurt Wallander.  If it's as good as the other two were, I'll be hooked.
