aiming for a vantage point


Could be so. It does get some attention though - the figure climbing on Kulturhuset's facade.

the light at the end of the tunnel


Stop listening to Murphy. It doesn't have to be the light of the oncoming train.

the first tram


There, behind all water, is the first tram on the new tram service from Sergels torg to Norrmalmstorg. To be exact, it's a practice tram on a run-in period.

bridgeworks


Bridges on your left, bridges on your right... The Skanstull/Gullmarsplan area is full of bridges for cars, trams and metro trains. Here's another view of one of the bridges.

paddle away


Two kayaks as seen from above, from the Tranebergsbron bridge.

Kayak, or canoe, paddling is a popular pastime and training on the Stockholm water ways. The kayak was invented and first used by the native Ainu, Aleut and Eskimo hunters in sub-Arctic regions of northeastern Asia, North America and Greenland.

Chim chimeney ...


Not the first chimney you would think of in the song from Mary Poppins, but nevertheless it is one. As you may have guessed already, it's on a boat. One of those going out into Lake Mälaren actually.

wall to wall parking


Some people just have it in them. Like here, parking her bicycle wall to wall outside the office of Wall to wall Arkitektur&Form AB where it explicitly says no bicycles - three signs in the window. You can only put on a big smile!

lineout

Wikipedia: "When the ball leaves the side of the field, a lineout is awarded against the team which last touched the ball. A number of players from both teams line up, at least 5m from the sideline, and the ball is thrown in by the hooker."

A game of rugby at Årstafältet. Attila RG (the oldest rugby club in Sweden - founded in 1949) is playing Hammarby.

a break in the fountain

There's not much water in the fountain today. Let's make it a beach instead. Maybe we can dip our toes every now and again....

more from city hall


The golden hall of City Hall. For the night illuminated a little extra. This evening you could wander the premises on your own. Quite a few people took the chance.

watercolour

Some people put in a lot of energy to tag their turf. Here they must have used a boat to get to the concrete. Here's a view of the turf itself.

butterflies


and other stuff hanging from the ceiling in the Globe mall. Kind of makes you a little happier. When the sun shines in like this and makes it bright it's even better.

cookie nose tower ?


During the installation Djurgårdsljus, the Kaknästornet tower also wore different colours, changing all the time. In front of the tower lies Sjöfartsmuseum, the Maritime museum.
