 External links to Participants photos from the HF 22 event

 Two albums were created, both albums open in new window as a Google Photo album.
 Link 1: Nordic HF 22

 Link 2: Nordic HF 22 (album #2)
All participants to the HF 22 confererence are welcome to add and share their own photos to these albums!
 To upload pictures you need a free Google account, which can easily be created on the upload page if you don't have one already.
 Just be careful not to upload photos that may be offensive or provoking.
 More albums from previous conferences can be accessed from the Archive page.
