I am from Gothenburg, Sweden. My first language is swedish and second is english. I have biked and hiked a lot since the early 90s in Sweden, and also in Denmark, Norway, Poland and England. ★ The pictures between 1998 and 2005 was shot by a Rollei X70. In 2006 I got an Olympus µ700 digital camera. The pictures from 2009 to 2013 are taken by a Canon Powershot G9. And pictures from 2014 are shot by a Canon Powershot G16. ★ I´m doing a documentary project, but also takes other kinds of photos. ★ For photo editing I use Photoshop since June 2012, PhotoScape and ZoomBrowser. Since 2008 I have made panoramas with ZoomBrowser, and in June 2012 I started to make them with Photoshop. ★ In the photo titles I write what it is, where it is and when it was. I´m using the language of the country where the photo was shot, and english. I tag in the same way and when the photo is edited, black and white and so on. ★ Most of my pictures are mapped at the right place within meters, and with a few pictures I can only do my best. ★ My best pictures, in my opinion, are tagged "biketommy".

Biketommy's conversations

After contact with a representative of Uspastorps website who lives next door, I got the following information:

This stone building is a root cellar and there is a common misconception that it was a home. On the other side of the road as seen from earth cellar there is a small grove of trees, which are the remains of the foundations for residential building. It is said to have been a barn-like building where the animals lived in one end of the house and so we lived in the other. The book - a cottage in Starrkärr-Kilanda parishes that:

"Per Larsson, born in 1798, wife Karin Andersdotter born 1797th kids named Lotta, Bob, John, Lars, Anna Maria (born 1837) and Andrew. The ground was reduced to 1/4 of a common size called "mantal". The couple Per and Karin move into an exception in 1863 and the children John, Andrew and Lotta lives at quarter "mantal". Lotta death in 1879 and then moving maid Maria Christina Andreas daughter born in 1852 to the brothers. She was still living there until his death in 1931 and has since likely inherited the above mentioned exception. "

The house was then deserted and it is rumored that young people went and played cards. The land was later in Sigurd Johansson Uspastorps possession.

The church was built 1727. There are ceiling paintings from 1734 and remains of medieval walls. The legend tells of a possible pre-Christian holy well nearby. On Eniro maps are marked "holy well" about 100 meters southwest of the church.

In the mid-1200s, King Håkon Håkonsson of Norway build a castle on this mountain, which was then an island, and was called Ragnhildsholmen. Together with Kungahälla on the other side formed on a lock on the river where no unauthorized people could pass. In the castle lived soldiers and their commanders, but also rulers with close links to the monarchy. Residents of southern Bohuslän convicted of manslaughter sent to Kungahälla. It was probably here at Ragnhildsholmen they were incarcerated. The wall is built of stone, for buildings and repairs in brick. The courtyard measuring 36x40 meters. Inside, there were wooden buildings on the stone foundation. Excavations made ​​by the late 1800s shows that homes were along the eastern wall, repairs to the west.

Kronan is a common yard pump in Sweden. Production of cast iron construction began in the early 1900s. Originally yard pump was the only water supply option, for both people and animals in the countryside. Häljeröd get nowadays their water from Dösebacka waterworks, that gets 2,2 million cubic meters of water from river Göta älv each year.

Queen Chop burial were held in several locations. The most famous is a dolmen, "Svensbydösen" in Svensby, Save on Hisingen (at the intersection Tålyckan-Sven Byvägen). Dose, in this case a so-called långdös, is the only known in the municipality of Gothenburg, while the oldest known structure in the municipality. In the summer of 1978 there was an excavation of the dose, because the tomb was in the way of the proposed North Trail, a ring road around Gothenburg. It could then be established that there really was a dolmen, but had been severely injured by the treasure hunter in search of a gold ring (forged by a giant) that according to legend should be in the grave.

Svensbydösen was built about 4500 years ago at a seashore, as the sea stood 15 feet higher. Originally consisted edge chain of 15 stones, of which five were found upright in the dig. The stones are of Göteborgsgnejs and most have been broken out of a hill about 250 meters northwest of the dose. The average weight of the stones between 1 and 2 tons takblocket up to 3 tons. Between the boulders were so-called "cold walls", thin flat stones, stacked up to a half meters in support of the House and the edge of the chain. On takblocket are dozens of carvings or "älvkvarnar" carved, which have been used to sacrifice in.

In 1979, rebuilt the dose a little distance from its original location, about 10 yards further east in the same slope. Queen Chop a legendary figure who appears in several tales from western Sweden. There are several variations on the legend that she is the main figure, the main features is as follows: The Queen must have been married to a king, who during a famine in the land should have proposed that every third person should be killed to save on food. But the queen should have advised her husband from killing his people, but instead have proposed that each one should be equipped with a hoe and a stick of barley for breaking new land that could be grown up. The King must have thought the Council was good and followed it, and hence to the queen have been named.

This path has fallen down and there is a high risk of more landslides. This is a disused sand quarry that has existed since the 1860s. It has large boulder and gravel deposits. It can be seen far and wide from eg river Göta älv and E45.

Västra Gatan 29 is from 1867 and one of the city's grandest buildings where business was run from the beginning. Kungälvs building was formerly concentrated in Västra Gatan and Östra Gatan. Since Västra Gatan was the only road through the town until 1956 was traffic there very lively with people, horse carriages and cows. A sound that many remember is the high clatter of iron-shod peasantry wagon wheels when early in the morning hurrying through the city to morning boat at the harbor bridge.
