exit strategy

Huvudsta centrum may be an incredibly dull shopping mall but they do know how to say "see you again soon" with flowers.

return of the tram


After 43 years, tramcars are returning to the inner city. A gloomy epoch is ending.

tranquility

This is part of the harbour of Vaxholm, on a beatiful autumn-day. There are still some vessels around, even though many are already out of the water.

return of the tiles

I've been testing your patience over the years with several shots from Västra skogen ("the Western Forest") subway station, decorated by artist Sivert Lindblom

air attack ?


Not really. It's rare fly-by, performed by 18 JAS39 Gripen (Griffin) from F7 and F21 during the celebration of Crown Princess Victoria's wedding day. It's been 17 years since it was allowed the last time. At that time one of them made headlines by going down . No such thing this time.

There's nothing low-budget about this brick wall in Vreten. I just felt like using that particular title.

advanced users only

Evidently, tram passengers are smarter than folks in the subway or commuter trains. That's why they're allowed to open the doors by themselves.

autumn on my mind

The warmth lingers for yet a while and it's good to be back in the routine. Like waiting for a city bus.

a northern hub

Once upon a time the subway network hadn't been extended to Danderyd Municipality. Several regional bus lines terminated in the inner city, contributing to the daily traffic jam known as rush hour. Nowadays there's a major bus terminal by Danderyd University Hospital and many lines terminate right here, above the subway station.

happy stairs

Renovation mayhem tends to cause inconveniences. Not so in Huvudsta. Upstairs or downstairs, smiles are everywhere.

tree optimization

Look upon it this way. Growing involves more or the less the same effort regardless of location so if you're a tree you might as well choose to grow next to a station entrance and be admired by commuters all day long.

global commuting

Our subway network is confined to the central part of Stockholm County. Still, one never knows when a world map might come in handy.

Not surprisingly, science is one theme in the artworks of Universitetet subway station. Artist Françoise Schein has created a tribute to Swedish botanist Carl von Linné.

the other side of Mörby

Mörby is a sleepy suburb where most residents will find themselves commuting elsewhere on a daily basis to their respective jobs or schools. This was shot in the midst of a quiet Saturday night and we're looking at the other side of the sign above the station entrance.

moving in different circles

What's in a circle? What shapes can be created using circles? Artist Pierre Olofsson explores a world of circles in a walking tunnel by Danderyd University Hospital. Here's a detail of the artwork Livets träd ("Tree of Life"). How many circles can you discern?

There's not much resemblance between a modern C20 subway train and the classic Silver Arrow of days gone by. Still, b/w photography leaves some room for the imagination.
