Photographer's Note

I like the simple roots of this word: eco and logical. It says it all.

So I carry on my list of swedish stereotypes. Yeah, the Swedes are super eco-friendly, too much for the EU in fact. I heard that they had to loosen their environmental regulations to abide by the EU ones...
In 2005 they claimed that they will be the first "OIL-FREE ECONOMY" within 15 years. (well ~13 years to go, there is still some work to be done...)
But they have an advantage over some other countries:

They obvioulsy love their bikes, they use them all the time, in the rain, the snow, the sun, sober or drunk (forbidden though...), at day or night, all the time! Just have a look at the bike-parks around the train station in Lund. There must be more bikes than inhabitants there...

A photo with no-one in there, it's getting rare.
