When some poor bugger loses his glasses in the winter chaos, can you then say he is snow blind?

It looks small from this perspective, but the two towers of Högalid Church are 84 meters high. The left tower has a cross on top and is named Olaus Petri after the clergyman, writer, and contributor to the Protestant Reformation in Sweden. The right tower is named Ansgar after Saint Ansgar, the Apostle of the North, and has a rooster on top.

A young lady patiently waiting in Huddinge commuter train station by a sculpture depicting a shell fossil and a star system. The artist Nils G Stenqvist calls this sculpture Du har tid! ("You've got time!"). Makes sense, doesn't it?

A footbridge taking you over Borgargatan from Högalidskyrkan, the church on the hill, to apartment buildings at Hornstull. The park - behind us - is a popular spot for sun bathers in the summer.

The escalators to and from tracks #1 and #2 at Södra (South) commuter train station. The ad for Viking Line says "They are coming". In the blank space should be a similar one with the text "Are you coming". Despite a vivid imagination, I can't imagine why it's been nicked.

Hammarbybacken ("Hammarby Hill") with Hammarby sjöstad (lake city) in front. Hammarbybacken is 82 metres in height and has five pists, the longest 450 metres. On top of the hill you have a stunning view of the city.

Proud, courageous S/S Blidösund. In 1910, the people on the island Blidösund commissioned Eriksbergs Mekaniska Verkstad in Gothenburg to build this vessel for their transportation. Today it is the symbol for jazz and blues on Stockholm water, still a coal-fired steam boat. In the background is a glimpse of the National Museum.

Walk up these stairs and before long you're in Hallonbergen ("Raspberry Mountains"). The raspberries themselves are unfortunately out of stock due to the season but it does look rather spiffy anyhow, don't you agree?

There's a lot to look at in the windows of the big stores these days. This is one of the decorated windows of a central warehouse and it keeps attracting young and old "children" every year. See more?

Perhaps. But I think this guy might settle for any white day. This was taken before the snow hit Stockholm and I guess he was on his way to northern pastures.
A member of the Swedish Sea Rescue Society (SSRS) is hurrying past the harbour restaurant in the seaside city of Nynäshamn. The SSRS is a volunteer organisation and the work is unpaid, similar to the UK's Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

We were a bit early to the cinema. When the film started it was almost full. The film? 2012, a surprisingly funny movie about the end of life as we know it and the beginning of something new.

to cross a bridge, to take a step further from the past and forward to a new beginning. from one year to another, from a decade to a new one.
if i could have wishes come true in the year 2010 that would hold each and every human on this earth to show insightfulness and embrace incompleteness whilst striving to be a better, kinder, compassionate being.
always learning from past mistakes and bad choices while looking onwards, to your right and your left, showing caring kindness and heartfelt good will. have a lovely new year, the first of yet another decade ~
