livsfarlig ledning

That third electric rail is just as dangerous even when it's wrapped in fluffy snow. Stay away unless you're a subway car.

cool bus service (2)

Obviously, an icy bus stop should have an icy shelter.

nice ice 2

Feel welcome - or perhaps not. I bet noone has entered through this door for a while. Anyone against?

sundbybergs begravningsplats (2)

Back at the cemetery in Sundbyberg. Someone has been visiting a grave. I guess these are the tracks from two pairs of feet.

in the swim of things

Time for a parting shot from Sollentuna simhall. Putting the pieces together, here now are those rolls of swimming lane lines as well as the springboard from our high-altitude adventure and of course all that warm water.

Mr Walker is in a festive mood tonight. Party like it's... January?

s:t eskils kyrka

Looking up can be a great idea in Handen and elsewhere. Here's a lighting armature in St. Eskil's Church.

lights for pedestrians

No green lights, but rather white ones. All along Drottninggatan, they have replaced the old lights above with these ones. And what a difference it makes!

subway fashion ?

Who comes up with such an idea? Fashion show in the subway. A new approach by SL (the company in charge of the subway). They have regular art exhibitions where one can take a ride and with a guide, look at all the subway-art. Some of it has been shown by us on plenty and pixels. This was a new one though. A corner of Östermalmstorg Station was sealed off and for a few hours turned into a fashion center, with makeup offered for commuters and finally a fashion show.
Judging by the size of the crowd, it was quite popular. Unfortunately I was a little late to get a good spot.

gröna stugan (2)

The tables are set in Gröna stugan ("the Green Cottage"). Hurry up, will you. I'm hungry.

awaiting The Sandman

Got your scarf and mittens? Here's another crispy view from the commuter train station. And yes, that's sand in those boxes. Sand for an icy day.

Above all, stay floating while learning to swim. Here are some colourful devices aimed at just that.

on my Life List

Among ornithologists, twitching is the habit of accumulating observed species on a personal list. Here a young gentleman gets an introduction to bird-watching in Södertälje. The ducks swimming nearby didn't seem particularly rare but - hey - you've got to start somewhere.

a wintry makeover

That same old water is a lot prettier in this form, don't you agree?

Same same but different. A nocturnal fast food palace in Södertälje.

bob the commuter

Bob The Builder is on assignment in Södertälje. When his day is done, he can take the commuter train home.

säby kyrka (3)

Once upon a time there was no snow to be seen in Salem. Here's Säby Church again.

Kids have a corner to themselves in the swimming complex.

crossing Canale Grande

The next time you need to construct a railway bridge, don't forget to start casting the concrete from the ground and then work your way upwards. This is the new railway bridge in Södertälje. It will replace an old bridge and some 150 trains will cross it every day.

bazaar in Salem

Pot-holders, I presume. Two for the price of... two? Back at the bazaar in Salem.

seizing the moment

A citizen wisely taking a walk in a kind of landscape rarely seen around here. It's usually a story of moist, mud and darkness. Behold Sundbyberg in a festive, wintry costume!

autopilot, take me home (2)

I did tell you not to worry. The train drivers get to practice this navigational trick in Södertälje every fifteen minutes.

säby kyrka (2)

The parish of Salem has got modern, centrally located premises. Säby Church itself is a wooden church from 1974.

cool bus service

Frost everywhere. On your windshield and on your timetable at the bus stop.

Bollstanäsvägen, Sollentuna (map) 30 December 2009



Lötsjön is a shallow lake in Sundbyberg, in fact the only lake in this municipality. Not surprisingly, many birds choose to hang around here. Taking a bath is prohibited but at this time of year most of us wouldn't want to anyway.

keep your distance

Lucky these animals are soft and cuddly. I think. The window prevents us from trying. A closer look in one of the large windows described earlier.

size matters in Rotebro

A king size trash can at the commuter train station.

Life is certainly not a competition.
on your marks...
Then again, maybe it is?
...get set...
Gotta go now!

Here are those electric icicles again. Södertälje puts on that festive shopping costume.

The shopping mall in Salem is open six days a week. Here are a couple of ladies in the midst of some serious Saturday shopping.

a never-ending task

Old Sisyphus would have appreciated the concept of driving a car in the winter. No matter how many times you have scraped the windshield before, there will be new fresh ice there for you tomorrow morning.

waiting down under

A final glimpse from station Danderyds sjukhus. Look closely and you just might recognize some artwork.
