October saw Malmö getting quite a few visits from coffee industry folks from as far off as Japan. These days it seems like the world is a really small place when you can bump into people at multiple points on the globe by chance. File that under #firstworldnovelties. But if you didn’t have the pleasure of dropping in last month, here are some photos to tide you over and give you a taste of what life is like here.

Looking at these pictures I realize I take a lot of shots that showcase the materiality of the city, but not many of the people that live in it — and while I do love architecture and artifacts, maybe I need a longer lens, or less inhibition sticking my camera in people’s faces? I hope you enjoy the pictures regardless!
