one city through our lenses

ever changing, yet still the same

2010-10-18T20:19:00-07:00


Back in 1967 trams disappeared from the city, to be replaced by buses and cars in the name of Progress. A couple of months ago they returned as the heritage tramway to Djurgården was symbolically extended to Sergel Square in the immediate city center with new tramcars and regular traffic to commence all year round.

Such is the face of Stockholm. Ever changing, yet still the same.

here we meet, party and die

2010-10-17T20:18:00-07:00

(image) Stureplan is one of the major party hubs in Stockholm and is the favourite playground for brats and the nouveau riche. The round thing is Svampen/the mushroom, a classic meeting place since 1937. In December 1994 four people were shot dead and 20 injured at the entrance to one of the night clubs here.

lost - are you ?

At least there are directions to be had here. The only thing now is - where to go....

the show must go on

2010-10-13T20:14:00-07:00

(image) Eagerly waiting for the musical We will rock you to begin.

"Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It’s a safe, happy, Ga Ga world. Unless you’re a rebel. Unless you want to Rock. On Planet Mall all the musical instruments are banned..."

It will be a night filled with Queen music!

recycling in Vaxholm

2010-10-11T20:12:00-07:00

(image) So - what do you do when your bike has broke down on you? Had it been a car, I'd say - paint it yellow, it might fool someone. In this case, some flowers did the trick. Or did you notice the flat tire first?

mushroom

2010-10-07T20:08:00-07:00


Autumn is in the air. Or on the ground, to be precise.

cold dog

2010-10-06T20:07:00-07:00


As the autumn winds turn slightly chilly, the prospect of enjoying fast food on the go still attracts passers-by.

windy, sacred ground

Nynäshamn is a coastal town 58 kilometers south of Stockholm. On top of a hill in the town center there used to be a lighthouse. In 1930 they instead erected Nynäshamn Church by architect Lars Israel Wahlman.

(image) A metro train arriving station Stadshagen. The "corrugated metal thingie" is an artwork depicting the two local rivalling ice hockey teams Djurgården and AIK. If you look from one side you see Djurgården score a goal, and from the other side AIK surely scores behind the Djurgården keeper. The artist is Lasse Lindqvist.

nature strikes back

2010-09-27T20:28:00-07:00

(image)
I think that nature is striving to take back what has been stolen. This house is a good example of that (my garden another). Or is this the famous Greenhouse effect?

(image) Långholmsgatan is one of Stockholm's most heavily trafficked streets. It's merely 500 meters long and connects Liljeholmsbron with Västerbron on Södermalm. Its name comes from the island Långholmen - that's the green in the photo.

The Royal Guards are responsible, with the police and palace authorities, for guarding The Royal Palace of Stockholm and Drottningholm Palace. They are also part of the defence force of the centre of Stockholm. When guard duties are required, The Royal Guards act as honorary guard to HM the King.
