hammarby kyrka (4)


Once a month (on the first Sunday) the local parish holds its service here in medieval Hammarby Church. I would really like to step inside one day.

Back with the railroad modules. There's always a better angle to be found!

tiles from ordinary day of life

Text & photos: Jennifer Hallqvist

Scenes from ordinary day of life on tiles. These tiles, found on the facade of a pretty ordinary looking building, were made by S:t Eriks Lervarufabrikör Uppsala.

Do click on the image above for a closer look.

filmstaden (2)

Backstugan ("Hillside Cottage") is another restaurant with a history. Surprisingly many celebrities have dined there. We're inside Filmstaden - the big film studio of days gone by.

Here's a railroad landscape module at a recent exhibition. You may recall catching a bit of freight train tunnel action right here.

Solna Konståkning (4)


Sometimes, failed shots are the ones worth keeping. These kids got a lot blurrier than I intended. Can you feel the energy in motion at the figure skating show?

filmstaden

A grand entrance to what used to be a leading motion picture studio. The memory lingers on.

in waiting

In Kungsträdgården we are waiting for the Japanese cherry trees to blossom. Soon. I think it's only matter of a week or two now ... This is how it looked on 29 April last year.

rådhuset

Symbolic baskets at subway station Rådhuset. The sign says "baskets - the most common bag during the 18th and 19th century".

ulriksdals slott


Once a country retreat or a veterans' hospital. The history of Ulriksdal Palace is diversified.

duvbo

Reliefs by Gösta Sillén in subway station Duvbo. Almost like some kind of fossil.

råsunda kyrka (3)

I don't know. A 22 meter bell tower made from concrete is certainly eye-catching but it's not a pretty sight. Råsunda Church could do better.

M:   Ah. I'd like to have an argument, please.
R:    Certainly sir. Have you been here before?
M:   No, I haven't, this is my first time.

left behind


This poor witch seems to be a little late to Blåkulla. She should have left on Maundy Thursday, but two days later she was still hanging around in Tumba Centrum. I wonder why? Shopping?

Behind these trees in Solna is a white house known for its kitchen.

escape sequence

So much to see around the china factory in Gustavsberg. I wonder if this old spiraling fire escape has ever been put to the test.

think tank in Värmdö

I haven't got the foggiest as to what's inside this cistern but I do like the patterns. Old industrial areas are excellent photogenic hunting grounds.

By the time I got this parting shot of the railway bridge at Almarestäket my fingers were entirely numb with cold.

the end

Hereby announcing the end of the Djurgårdsljus journey, by getting a little closer to the Nordic Museum, where I started with a teaser. Hopefully there will be a revisit next year, and I hope you have enjoyed the trip as much as I did.
