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". See the tag list down below. ★★★ My videos in YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/biketommy999/videos ★★★ Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/Biketommy ★★★ Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/biketommy999/

The station was inaugurated December 9, 2012 and the photo was taken on December 13. The new Alependeln and trains between Trollhättan / Vänersborg and Gothenburg stops here and connects to buses and trams on the Gamlestadstorget. Spring 2013 begins the next phase of construction of the travel center, which will be finished 2017.

The smoke is coming from Tagene quarry. It refines about 800 000 tonnes of red-colored granite a year to rubble. This is used as concrete, asphalt and drainage layer for houses.

This barn was built in the 1850s and is originally from Madbråten in Råggärd parish. They moved it to Järbo 1995. The barn was used only during the summer months when they had cattle on pasture in the woods or backcountry. With extend the distance between the farm and pastures were the easiest to build summer cowshed. Most often hired one herdsmen who were made responsible for the cattle. They were herding cows in the forest, milk them and get them into the barn at night. The barn was donated to Råggärds hembygdsförening. The gift also included a variety of old farm implements. The homestead union had no suitable place to build the house and therefore they began a collaboration with Järbo homestead union. The barn was moved to the location next to the croft Bräckan in Järbo. From this location based Karolinerhuset trail and not far away is the beautiful homestead Vinnsäter.

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.
