Hötorgshusen won't settle for fifteen minutes of fame,

aiming for the spheres


Simple and elegant patterns on the Concert Hall (Konserthuset) aiming for those musical spheres

minimal furnishing

I think there is room for more furniture than the two armchairs here, but as the room is in the Kulturhuset at Sergels Torg it could very well be an art installation.

the good father


The text on the stone mentions; Ulvkättil, Gye and Une who "had this stone raised after Ulv their good father. He lived in Skålhamra." This family was one of the powerful dynasties which lived here when the stone was raised in the begining of the 11th century.

A nice stroll in the sunshine


Another pic from Hammarby Sjöstad, the new part of town being built at the waterfront - as you can see. This bridge caught my attention when the sunshine reflected on all the stainless steel poles and in the water.

eyecenter

An orthoptic centre at Mäster Samuelsgatan

three in a row (tic-tac-toe) ?

Maybe a bit to large to play with, but the game comes to mind. These are found in Hammarby Sjöstad, a new part of town still being built.

fountain of youth

Bathing in or at least occupying the fountain (if empty) at Sergels Torg is a strange local tradition. Here we see some merry youngsters celebrating (?) the arrival of spring.

Wailing Wall

A wailing wall is not what you’d expect to find in Jakob’s Church. Well, think again.

dyslexia

Myth: "Normal" means being able to learn the same things that other kids of the same age learn, in the same way, at the same time, at the same rate.

Reality: There are many different ways to learn. The world is a better place because we are not all the same. There are advantages to thinking in different ways.

Time takes its toll in a beautiful way. Rissne by rust.

pockets of resistance (4)

Another icy Kungsträdgården memory from a winter (hopefully) gone by now. How many skating styles can you see here?

summer stage

Kungsträdgården (“The King’s Garden”) is more of an event location than a garden really. It does occasionally rain in the summer (mind you, rarely...) so this roof over the stage can come in handy...

colourful Tensta ?

To be honest, there's really very little colour to be found - at least where we were browsing. This is about the most I found. It's some kind of toy at the playground. I'm not familiar with how it works though (I haven't been a child in a long long time, maybe that's why)

Age of Enlightenment

The magical first afternoon of spring by Sergels Torg saw a steady stream of happy citizens resembling a colony of ants merrily rushing from and to whatever while enjoying the sunlight

One more fountain-pic



from the Stockholm International Fair, and if you want even more - follow the link on stockholmbypixels. I can't stay away from it, so that Webshot-folder is going to grow.....

pockets of resistance (3)

Just keep looking, there’s still some snow around. I snapped this one earlier today behind the hockey arena Vilundahallen in Upplands-Väsby.

your ad here!

I was amazed to find a giant commercial poster on the façade of the Dome in Milan some years ago. Jakob’s Church takes the idea one step further. This time we’re inside. What’s next? Commercial breaks in the sermon?

another sign of the times

Seems to be a multicultural place - Tensta, judging from the flags around this clock hanging from the ceiling in the mall.

no nudity please, we're a bank

Whoever did these, didn't have in mind that they might not be the appropriate ornates for a bank, but SwedBank is "living" in this building at Kungsträdgårdsgatan. I doubt though that too many people actually see these two....
