The world is spinning faster and faster and now you lot turn up and want to go and party and I have loads of things to do at work and – well, why not? And you’re staying for breakfast as well? Fine. Let's go.

I really like this big apartment house on Marieberg. In a way it is so majestic. The people who live here enjoy a spectacular scenery with the outlook over Riddarfjärden (water) and Långholmen (an island, from where this photo was taken).
This is a lamp post on Söder Mälarstrand photographed from above on Västerbron/Långholmsgatan. So where does the bridge (Västerbron) end and the street (Långholmsgatan) begin?
If we would move away from the fire escape and into the office building, and take the escalator one floor up and move left this is what we would see. The inside of the office block Fatburen.
In my first Stockholm picture I showed you a cupola on top of a building. The guide said that the house belonged to a bank.
Well it seems the next building along was in fact the headquarters of the bank and the name was in lights on the roof. Do be sure to click on the picture for a clearer view and check out the last letter E.
Just a few good gymnastic jumps away from here they are putting something in the ground. I guess the yellow ‘house’ is for welding the plastic pipes together. So, what are the pipes for? Central heating or high speed internet access? I heard on the news today that a private person in a small village in the county of Värmland – right on the border to Norway – has Sweden’s fastest internet access with 40 GB. Why? Just for the fun of it and it’s all homemade. I think the yellow pipes are for central heating.
Kungshuset by Kungsgatan, on the other hand, is staffed as far as I can tell from all these awnings. Summer is here for sure.
First, I'd like to thank Per Strömsjö for inviting me to contribute to this blog.
I've only spent a few hours in the city in the summer of 2006. Some 28 of my Stockholm photos and an account of my visit can be found on my Baltic 2006 blog.
Here though I'll post a few others that didn't make it there for one reason or another.
When our bus dropped us off in Stockholm, one of the first things I noticed, as we milled around waiting for the canal boat, was this magnificent-looking cupola. According to the guide though it merely belongs to a private house owned by a large bank. I think she said one of directors lived therein.
While our big sister Stockholm by Pixels is participating in City Daily Photo Blog theme day "The colour red" we at Plenty celebrate the occasion with a pink small thin inflatable rubber bag with narrow neck, aka balloon.
