the colour of solna (2)

Solna is a colourful place. The subway station is a symphony in red and green. Even a humble fire hydrant becomes a voice in the fugue. See more?

I swear that if I come to Stockholm one of the first place I'll visit is this station. Not that I like it so much, but I really think it's unique!

Härlig form på väggarna, den röda färgen är underbar. Svalkan där nere är väl också bra vissa varma dagar?

Taking the subway is fun in Stockholm! Vad roligt! Halsningar fran Hagen

Very pleasing to the eye Hard to believe it is a subway station.

Halcyon said...

It is a nice station. And I think green and red look wonderful together.

Stop by my blog sometime today - there's something for you!

Someone has better remind me, I have a vague recollection that there is a national flag based on these very colours... ;)

Vogon Poet: Pretty unusual, at least. We'll see if we can come up with something rivaling this station.

Lena Johansson: Svalka är hett (!) eftertraktad såhär års, åtminstone när jag är i farten. T-banan är pålitlig. Samma klimat året runt härnere, snudd på.

Leif Hagen: Hej Leif! Ja, det är faktiskt kul att bara åka runt och titta.

B Squared: I should have brought one of them blue trains into the picture somehow.

Halcyon: The more I see of this station, the more I agree. (Will stop by your place, of course.)

Thanks all for pursuing colour analysis with us!

I remember the other shot but this one is really eye-catching!

Such a colorful place! I guess, tristesse has something to do with grey. (;

I thought Solna colors were black and yellow? ;-)

Looks like an underground Christmas!

explosion of colour :)

For the coming week we'll have another peek at Västra skogen station before leaving Solna for a while.

JM: We haven't got your skies so we need a bit of extravaganza down there instead!

cieldequimper: Exactly! :)

Buenos Aires Photoblog: I suppose it's all in the eye of the beholder...

Kenta Jönsson: Good point. Thanks for salvaging our diplomatic relations with Solna! ;)

Jacob: Hee. Maybe we should venture down here when that time comes?

exposemaximum: In a nutshell.

Thanks everyone.
