Rune Carlsson grew up in this now abandoned little house at Stav in Tungelsta with his brothers and parents. He was a very good friend to my father. He was always very happy when you saw him. Growing up he learned to play the accordion, and he would often play at the local folkparks In Haninge. Rune passed away a couple of weeks ago.

Note to self. Never go for a bike ride during a storm. That's what I did yesterday. It was a very tough workout so when I rode down this straight at Stav in Tungelsta I didnt have the strength to pedal, so I stopped for a photo.

December started with a storm. I was out on a bike ride and came to a complete stand still because of the strong headwind when I was at Stav. When I came back home I was hoping for a cup of coffee. But instead there was a power outage. And everything went pitch dark. That is never any fun. It lasted all afternoon. So the Swedish word of the day is Strömavbrott. Power outage. And I got a good photo for the theme day standing on the veranda looking out at all the blackness. Theme day. Looking out.

This is a three photo panorama. Must have been the shortest delivery route this Coca Cola truck driver has ever made. You can see the big Coca-Cola plant to the left. The truck is parked in front of a Pressbyrån kiosk at the Jordbro commuter station. Every Christmas Coca-Cola try their best to sell us their soft drink for the holiday, but it never works. If you are a real Swede you will drink Julmust at the Christmas table.

Work have started on the next phase of construction at Stora Arken (The Big Ark), in central Handen. Ten years ago it was a forested area, now it is filled with apartment buildings and a few more will be built here over the next months. I stopped there yesterday and shot a number of panoramic views.

Swedish word of the day. Husvagn. Caravan. Comes from the two words Hus (which means Home), and Vagn (which means Wagon). The reason I had for taking the photo of the Husvagn, parked in front of Lakeside at Rudan, was the ice. It sure is getting colder and more Winter-like now.

There has been a lot of logging in Haninge this Autumn. Not sure why. Most of the trees arent all that big or dead or anything really. But maybe they (the municipality), can produce some new benches from all that timber? This bench stands on a path that is used by people heading to and from the Rudan nature reserve from Jordbro.

For a few decades this little wooden cottage in Handen has served as a Greek Orthodox Chapel. It used to be blue, a very fitting Greek color, but a few months ago when the nearby Gula Villan got a new layer of paint, someone decided to repaint the Chapel as well!

This must be the darkest November month in many years. It's like the sun is missing all together. Grey skies and rain is the current weather situation. This was the scene at the old tree earlier in the week. The flickrverse seem to like this photo, around 7000 hits as I'm typing this.
