daily photo theme day: 40 years of water tapping

Some three kilometers away from the photographer (at Hornstull) is Gullmarsplan and the gigantic ball Stockholm Globe Arena.

The Globe was inaugurated in 1989 and is the world's largest spherical building. 110 meters in diameter and 85 meters in inside height, it would take some 40 years to fill it from a water tap. (Where do those numbers come from?) Here and here are more pixels.

Wow, if it's three kilometers away, it must be big! Great idea for the theme.

That shot is nicely balanced with the glow against the dark skies.

40 years huh? WOW

Must be a pretty big ball! I always enjoy your night shots.

Nice choice for the theme day.
