easter egg window

I took this picture while I was in Stockholm, Sweden over Easter.

I’m always interested in the differences in detail from country to country. This is an image I could not have shot in Ireland. We don’t have that style of window combined with that wrought iron, and I’ve never seen an Easter decoration like that over here.

I love the cartoon scene on the giant eggs. It has the sheen of cute nostalgia, yet the the rabbit is a touch too cheerful, and appears to be talking the duck out of one of her eggs.

Maybe it’s a protection racket: one stripy egg for the rabbit, or else a nest full of smashed ones…

On the other hand perhaps they are good chums and the duck is giving up the egg willingly.

I hope it’s the latter.
