One last derby at Råsunda Stadium (Part 2)

For the start second half we got treated to a light and pyrotechnic show from the fans. The smoke seemed stronger than usual and you really have no choice but to abandon ship and move out of the way.

Yesterday was the final derby between Djurgården IF and AIK at Råsunda Stadium. Next year both teams will move to new arenas and Råsunda Stadium, which hosted the 1958 World Cup, will eventually be demolished and replaced with apartment buildings.

A.C. Azzurri is a team playing in the seventh division of the Swedish football league. Traditionally it’s consisted mostly of Italian immigrants (or the children of immigrants) that live in Stockholm.

It hasn’t been all AIK that I’ve photographer in the past month. Yesterday I was back at Råsunda Stadium and photographing Djurgården as they meet Helsingborg.

It’s been a while since I’ve made a post here, but that doesn’t mean that I’ve been sitting on butt and enjoying the summer weather. During this last month I’ve gotten to cover a fair amount of AIK games for one of my colleagues who has been on summer vacation.

This Sunday I was out with my new Canon 1D-X and photographing an Allsvenskan match. It was the first game I’ve shot with this camera and I was thoroughly satisfied.

Between my vacation to Italy and the fact that the main Swedish league suspends for the Euros it’s been a month since the last football game I got to photograph. Yesterday I went and photographed a game between Hammarby IF and Ljungskile SK.

Was back out photographing football yesterday evening. The weather was much nicer than last time and it was the final game I photograph before the Swedish league suspends for the Euro.

Yesterday I was back on a football pitch and photographing the game between Djurgården and Åtvidaberg. The weather yesterday was all but normal, continuously going from sunny to rainy.

The last two days have been pretty busy. Thursday night I covered a fairly low key Allsvenskan match between Djurgården IF and Örebro SK. Yesterday I spent all day at the Ice Hockey World Cup.

Had a pretty busy week last week doing lighting on a 4 day TV commercial. A week full of early starts and extra long work days.

Last year Djurgården started out the season with the derby against AIK and therefore played the opening game at the larger Råsunda stadium.
