silent waffles


Filmstaden in Solna used to be a vibrant, modern film studio. These days it's more like a museum. Step into this small café, have yourself a waffle and relax among portraits of once well-known actors from the days of silent movies.

Great title! :-)

She looks very concentrated on her waffle... or something! Sounds like a nice place to relax in any case.

I have a pic up today that I think you will enjoy. I thought of you when I took it!

Much to my surprise I was able to resist the urge to have a waffle myself. But next time...

JM: I suppose one wouldn't really want a noisy waffle! :)

Halcyon: Maybe a crossword?

Thanks for stopping by.

I am with JM, a great title indeed. The picture is anyway lovely and perfectly composed. I'd take a waffle and a chocolate.

Sounds like a very nice activity.

Jag blir nyfiken om du frågat damen om hon vill vara med i bloggen. Får man fota vem man vill och visa?

Jacob said...

That's rather sad. What does a former film studio have to do with waffles? Oh, the building's been converted to a waffle house...

Re your comment on Cedar Key - I have no idea as to the cost of renting a kayak, but I don't think it would be very much - perhaps $10-15 an hour. I could be wrong, of course. I'll check the next time we go over there.

Haven't been there for a couple of decades.

The sound level in some modern theaters is so high that they could reintroduce silent movies and the deaf audience won't notice any difference.

VP: The light was difficult so I didn't have much hope for this shot.

cieldequimper: Sort of seizing the moment.

Lena Johansson: På allmän plats får man normalt fotografera och så länge man inte kränker någon eller marknadsför produkter får man visa bilden. Det är det korta svaret. Ett längre svar finns här. Självklart ska man visa hänsyn, det brukar räcka långt.

Jacob: But the folks who introduced sound film certainly weren't waffling .

Steffe: A place for memories. Incidentally, new housing is being constructed nearby. I wonder what it feels like to live in a new flat in a historic neighborhood.

Thanks everyone.

Another great people shot! Very well captured, I love it :-)

Lena Johansson said...

Det var ett grundligt svar och svaret var inte alls som jag trodde.
