not your average hangover (2)

Ever had one of those days? Head feels like it’s been misbehaving recently although you can’t seem to recall any details. A cluster of pneumatic drills are working overtime renovating something
inside your ears. Even the colors seem oddly tilted.
And that sun, can’t anyone turn it off for a while please!
Must have been something in the coffee.
Mind your head!

let there be light


The interior of Tibble Church i Täby. All four walls are made of glass which creates a spectacular light as the sun moves during the day.
This is a modern church, it was inaugurated in 1978.
It's located on the top floor of larger building in the center of Täby.

Vi har flera kyrkor i Täby, Tibble kyrka stod klar 1978. Den ligger högst upp i ett fyravåningshus. Kyrkorummet är rektangulärt och domineras av de enorma glasmosaikväggarna.

walking the dogs


Walking the dogs in Rålambshovsparken. The park - other parts of it - is a very popular spot in the summer. People meet, play games, have picnics or just show off. On a sunny weekend it is always packed with people.

what's going on ?

Apparently there are marine-archaeological investigations being made here. They have found at least one old wreck on the site where the new "Söderströmtunneln" (a railway tunnel) is going to be built. Now they're searching the bottom for more interesting things. This view is from a restaurant called "Matkalaset".

Jag trodde man var i full färd med att bygga ny tunnel redan, men det är tydligen marinarkeologiska utgrävningar som pågår, efter att man hittat ett gammalt vrak på platsen. Senare ska detta bli "Sveriges största grop" enligt vissa källor. Undrar just hur man kommer att se det...?

the sauna


After a warm and relaxing sauna you just jump into the sea. If there isn't ice 'cause then you have to make a hole first. This sauna can be found in Åkersberga.

walking my baby

In Stockholm we have very few cornices like other great cities; we go more for the gravel paths - functional in beautiful surroundings. Like this one on Norr Mälarstrand - baby in front, Högalid church in the background.

tensta gymnasium

The upper secondary school in Tensta was established as the well-renowned school Norra Latin moved into this suburb in the eighties

alien attack ?

Don't worry; the little green man from Mars (?) can't hurt us now. He's in jail as it seems. The bars look sturdy enough to hold him for a while. The place is Tensta. Beware...

duck surprise

- If you don't like duck, you're rather stuck
.
In all fairness, Östermalms Saluhall provides more delicatessen
than you and I could think of. Including duck, of course,
at B Andersson's. With or without orange or cherry.
Twenty stalls, restaurants and cafes - this food hall
by the Östermalm Square is an institution.

- Duck with Orange; duck with cherries; duck surprise
- What's duck surprise?
- Er... that's duck without oranges or cherries

teamwork

...is the name of this sculpture in front of Tensta Gymnasium. For once a sculpture that is actually comprehendible. I failed to mark who made it though. I'm sure someone will tell...

"Samspel" heter den här skulpturen, och det kan man förstå.

at the top of the bar

Slussen is a quite remarkable place in Stockholm. You have the metro, you have the commuter train and busses. You have the boats and ferries and cars and bikes and - above all -
you have the people and the bars.

a house by the river ?

Not quite so but at least by the water. These are found at the Pampas Marina and are permanent houses
to judge by the concrete lower part.

Husbåtar är en sak, men här har man tagit steget fullt ut ser det ut som.
Mer permanent än så här blir det väl inte vid Pampas Marina.

Djurgårdsfärjorna, idag 6 stycken, har anor från 1700-talet. Då var det roddarmadamer som såg till att man kunde ta sig mellan olika stadsdelar på vattnet. I mitten av 1800 -talet började man använda sig av olika typer av ångbåtar.

almost fair - final

I've got so many of these fantastic colored fountain-pictures that it makes it really hard to choose only one. I'm gonna put a bunch of them on my Webshots page. This is just a taste of what it can look like. It's changing all of the time. Red, blue and lilac in different patterns. High and low, in pairs or all at the same time. Sometimes just puffs of smoke. I'm in love with this fountain. I could sit there forever and just look... sigh...
.
Så där, då är vi tillbaka till favoritfontänen vid Älvsjömässan för ett sista (?) avsnitt. Jag skulle i och för sig kunna hålla på länge än men dels har ni nu fått smakprover på den och dels så börjar det nu bli ljust ute och fontänen stängs av vid 21:00 så det blir inte samma färgspel längre. Jag kommer att lägga ut ett gäng bilder på min Webshot-sida. Kika gärna vidare där.

an ancient blogger

A thousand years ago, during the Iron Age, blogging wasn't as easy as today. First you needed a hammer, a chisel and a giant stone or a rock. Then a couple of months later when you finished writing, you had to distribute it... This stone is located at Jarlabankes bridge in Täby. The area is famous for its population of rune stones.
.
"Jarlabanke lät resa dessa stenar efter sig, medan han ännu levde, och han gjorde denna bro för sin själ, och ensam ägde han hela Täby.
