Christmas shopping

photo: Lennart Gabrielsson

Christmas shopping with chandeliers and blue diode sky in Vällingby just outside Stockholm city. Indoor or semi-indoor shopping is perhaps a good thing when it's dark and cold outside.

Also nice with a roof when it's raining as it does a few miles to the south from Vällingby. Haven't really noticed any Christmas spirit anywhere this year.

I like those overhead lights. Very neat. I am really looking forward to being in Berlin in a few weeks. I love the shopping atmosphere over there. The sterile malls here in the US are just not the same.

Beautiful blue 'sky'!

the photo really pops out on the CDP portal. Lovely lights.

I agree. These malls that conservative people whine about are very apt in our clime. It can be dark and cold in summer too!

Most new shopping centers are boring but I do agree that our climate calls for new measures.

Unfortunately, this is still very much outdoor shopping. IMHO, the renovation of Vällingby has been a costly fiasco. Billions of SEK later it's still an outdoor shopping centre. A glass roof high in the air improves the aesthetics but doesn't make a lot of difference in keeping shoppers warm.
