Photographer's Note

I love to take photos in the streets of colourful and/or funny sights. So when I saw this security guard in his bright vest leaning on a metal pole and the two workers wearing bright jackets resting on a bench with an ice cream each, I just had to take a picture.

I admit the title 'Public Works Department' may be slightly far-fetched. I have no idea if these men were publicly employed, but I couldn't resist the temptation to make a reference to the probably global joke that public employees don't waste more energy than necessary.

This was taken at the northern edge of Stockholm's Old Town, Gamla stan. In the background is a glimpse of a side wall of the Parliament, located on a small island called Helgeandsholmen (Holy Spirit's Islet). Between the two grey walls behind the seated men is a narrow natural canal separating Helgeandsholmen from Gamla stan ('The City between the bridges').

If the guard would turn right and start walking he would reach the perimeter of the Royal Palace after some 30–40 meters.
