nocturne for Kista Science Tower


If you rank all countries by population density, Sweden will be found at place 194. In other words, we've got plenty of space. So, with its 33 floors and 117 meters Kista Science Tower may not be much of a skyscraper by international standards but it is in fact Sweden's second tallest building.

I wish we had space, I feel claustrophobic. ;-)
Great composition with the turn towards the tower.

Snyggt, Per!
Jag såg tornet sticka upp bakom Säbysjön i Jakobsberg igårkväll.
Och jag ser det från toafönstert på jobbet. :-)
Nu förstår jag varför, det är så högt!

A couple of friendly police officers stopped by as I was shooting this. More on that encounter here.

cieldequimper: We're so used to our open spaces that we tend to take them for granted. A trip abroad usually cures that misconception...

Lena Johansson: Inte illa om det låter sig observeras t.o.m. från toa! :)

Luis Gomez: Appreciate that.

arabesque: I suppose a crowded place can be more energetic and exciting but also a source of stress.

Thanks everyone.

Super composition, Per! Love early evening shots and that's a nice looking skyscraper.

Re your comment on Cedar Key: Bacon and eggs! Oh, a maybe a beer! :-)

Early morning, in fact. Snapped at 2.20AM. Thanks, Jacob.

Interesting photo and information - soooo nice to have morning as early as 2:20 AM :-)

What is the tallest building?

Per Stromsjo said...

It has me confused every year, mornings at 2AM...

The tallest building is Turning Torso in Malmö. I was privileged to follow the construction of that twisted thingy.

Sorry for not responding earlier, Tinsie.
