Your shot:

I like that one too. I'm sorry to have been so late in saying so. The 
first time I saw it I thought: I should save some of those too (motion 
blur). I have some, but they don't work like yours does. It's nice.

Simon (Simon says: Simon Lindekrantz) and the piano man (Lasse Malmsj?) 
are the driving force behind these jam-sessions. They've organized over 
52 in a row now. I heard them say to each other on Saturday (the day 
before Easter, right in the middle of a long, long holiday): "If we pull 
this off today, then we can hold a jamsession on Midsummer eve."

Now _that_ would be pushing it. Sweden is not a religious country, but 
Midummer Eve is sacred. There won't be more than a soul or two in the 
city (and they'll be foreigners).

This is the closest I've gotten to succeeding with motion:

Thanks Luis, BD, Michiel and Jim. That was nice to hear your remark from 
a musicians point of view, Jim.
