Photographer's Note

I am back to present days after my short scanned excursion to 2003. This is certainly nothing special, but I couldn't resist a snapshot when I came across this in a park on Södermalm island a few days ago.

A young woman was relaxing on the lawn while young soldiers were learning how to erect a radio antenna. Considering that Sweden has just applied for Nato membership, it would be tempting to see this as part of preparations against the hostile Russian interference that is expected, but I guess there is really no connection.

The sculpture in the center of the photo has been here since 1976 and was created by artist Arne Jones using stainless steel.

I borrowed the title from the well known novel by the Russian author Lev Tolstoy. It was written long before the attack on Ukraine.
