Summer Panoramas of Stockholm

Here are a couple recent panorama images of Stockholm taken on a gorgeous day, August 13, 2016, from Champagnebaren at Mosebacke on Södermalm.

Rainy night in Malmö

James Blake at Berns

Beethoven in the balcony waiting for James Blake to start. “I hope it’s loud. My hearing has been shit since the 1820s.”

Newly framed art in my apartment

I just framed the set list from the incredible Andrew WK concert here in Stockholm at Debaser Slussen.

A beautiful addition to the Scandinavian minimalism in my apartment which might be all covered in blood after it’s time to party hard.

Stockholm City Library

Stockholm City Library designed by Gunnar Asplund in the 1920’s. I can see this beautiful building from my apartment window and I pass it on my walk to work.

Good morning, Vasastan.

Trygg is the Swedish word for “safe.” This is at the top of a beautiful old insurance company building in Stockholm.

Illuminated Door Handles

These restroom door handles in Stockholm glow in different colors to show you if someone is inside.

Scaffolding 2

The scaffolding across the street has completely surrounded the building and is now going over the top.

This is a sequel to my previous action-packed report: Scaffolding.

Garbage chute instructions

A handsome, vintage, framed note in the hallway of this apartment building provides pointers on how to properly use the garbage chute.


Stockholm Architecture Museum

The Architecture Museum in Stockholm was free today, so I stopped in and took a look around.

This is a 1967 architectural model for the construction of the NK department store in Fittja, a neighborhood near Botkyrka, Sweden.

I took this photo with my iPhone using only the automatic focus and no artificial editing. I spent a few minutes taking photos to get the exact image I wanted.

Corner Windows


Stockholm has one Halloween store

As we’ve discussed in previous years, Halloween in Sweden is not what it is in America. But it’s getting there. (See Halloween in Sweden, 27 October 2009)

I’ve noticed an increase in the excitement and decorations for Halloween just within the three autumns I’ve been living in Stockholm.

The city has one main store where people go to get costumes and supplies. The store, located centrally on Drottninggatan, is called Butterick’s.

Butterick’s opened there in 1903 and is now a 3-story complex which begins at street level and goes down two more floors.

The place is a madhouse in the weeks leading up to Halloween and even has a line queued up outside. A guard at the door lets more people in as other people leave.
