creepy latin

Some people get the creeps just thinking about school. I wonder what an author like Stephen King could envision at Norra Latin?

stock

Stock from a dry dock at Beckholmen. Picture taken before the dock was enclosed by the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code. It's kind of sad that the code has to be introduced  as it limit access to port areas.

The traffic is hopeless. Wherever you're heading, someone will be there to block your route.

city archeology

Unexpected excavations in the middle of busy streets are a sure sign of spring. Here at Hantverkargatan they have uncovered (and replaced, methinks) unique pipes from way back in the 20th century.

through the eyes of a child

Kid's drawings blown into gigantic proportions are the predominant artistic decoration in the subway station Hallonbergen. Artists Elis Eriksson and Gösta Wallmark decided to create a station for kids of all ages. This initiative has drawn some criticism. Art tends to be provocative.

huvudsta

A waste-basket and a couple of benches out of focus might not reveal much. But the trained eye of a true subway connoisseur will recognize that band of colour stripes along the cave wall in Huvudsta subway station.
