Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
Since Sweden is quite cold in the winter, a lot of birds migrate to Africa where the winters are nicer. They gather in huge flocks and travel together. I tried to get a good shot of this flock of birds, but since it was dark and my camera is a bit slow in dark conditions, most of the birds had already landed on some building. There were many many more birds flying around just before this picture was taken.
