arrival in Huvudsta

Huvudsta in Solna Municipality is yet another example of a modern, functional and good-looking subway station

I absolutely agree: it looks neat, essential and functional.

When do you take your photos??? No people? ;-)

Jacob said...

I like the clean lines. But, like Ciel, I wonder where are the people?

Peter Fristedt said...

You know, we only have 20 people per the square kilometre in Sweden, in comparison to France's 110 and USA's 31. It has to show. But yes, I do agree, our photos are often too empty of people.

I like the striped pipe at the top; it makes me think of a Christmas peppermint stick...YUMMM!

The stations was opened in 1985 and I'd guess the subway car arriving is equally old.

Vogon Poet: And without the assistance of our local vandals, many stations would look like this most of the time.

cieldequimper: Believe it or not, in the midst of rush hour on a Monday afternoon... ;) The entrance/exit is in the other direction so at this end of the platform few people would be hanging around.

Jacob: They're inside this arriving train! ;)

Peter Fristedt: Right you are. However, this state of affairs is about to change.

Carrie Flicka: A Christmas peppermint stick? Well, why not! :)

Thanks all for commenting.

If there was an award to subway shots I wouldn't think twice and give it to you! :-) Fantastic perspective on this one too!

Per Stromsjo said...

You're too kind, JM.

Anyhow, snapping photos in these modern stations is a pleasure. It might be more of a challenge to get interesting shots from the older outdoor stations. [note to self]

What wonderful movement you have captured in this one!!

Per Stromsjo said...

What I like about this shot is the blue apparition in a grayish cave. Plus this perspective thingy - lines and movement along those lines.

Thanks, Carrie Hayes.
