This photo is taken shooting straight up, from the entrance to the Klarakyrka (St. Clara's Church). Walled in on all sides, the grounds of Klarakyrka offer no suggestion you are in the heart of a major city. This solitude has a downside, however: several heroin addicts were off in a corner, heating spoons and baring their arms. A few blocks away, in the sunken plaza in front of the Kulturhuset (House of Culture), you can often see young people inhaling gas in the late evening.
