It's been a while since that night in the Observatory Grove. I'd like to share one last shot with you.

Dog Days of Summer

A hot day on Fjällgatan and a dog rests easy beneath a bench whilst mistress chats with her friend, sheltering under the shadow of a coach.

We have seen some bits already here on Plenty, but this one deserves the title "Megabit" I think. It looks as if it will withstand most vessels tries to get loose.

infra city

I've been testing your patience with lots of night shots this summer. Here's another view from Infra City, still in front of that hotel.

In his comment about the small blue house Per Stromsjo remarked on how we appreciate the diversity in this kind of architectural mix from days gone by.

Here we see that mix, together with our coach driver who is very worried that the bus is over-heating.

The street is called Fjällgatan and overlooks the city and all the inner islands. I suspect the majority of tourists and possibly locals alike, while admiring the distant view, overlook the interesting architecture of the street itself.

Small blue house

In between the two houses of which I showed you the roofs is this smaller dwelling.

From the heights of "Söder"

... and this is the view I talked about in my previous post. Quite nice, isn´t it?


Funny little house

This funny little house lays on Nytorgsgatan on Södermalm. Södermalm is often poetically referred to as "Söders höjder" - the Heights of "Söder" (South) - which reflects to its topography of sheer cliffs and rocky hills. And from this little house you have an remarkable view of Stockholm. I´ll show you in my next post...

On the roof

I would be surprised if Per and Peter don't know where these roofs are. I'm not asking where this is though.

What I'd like to know is what is the mast on the left-hand roof? Is it a television aerial, a radio antenna broadcasting messages, a mobile phone signal relay or something else?

Further, what is that contraption attached to the skylight of the house on the right? Could it be a digitial TV receiver, a security camera or what?

When you've satisfied my curiosity, I'll show you what lies between the two houses.


good night, sister (2)

Another "sister municipality" of Sollentuna is Oppegård near Oslo. The distinctly non-charming building behind the trees in this photo is the political center of Sollentuna, home of the Municipal Council.
