No one needed the church at Allévägen in Tungelsta so it is a gym these days. I'm sure that worked out good.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
The Lindbergh family at Stav in Tungelsta seems to have fixed the long-time problem with the lack of street lights along the very dark and narrow Stavsvägen, at least for one month of the year. Tette told me that they have spent around 50 000SEK on Christmas lights over the last four years. And they are not done yet. A LED rain-deer will appear on the roof soon, and a big Santa is of course also on the way. Took this handheld with the zoom lens. Might go back with a tripod and a wide-angle lens in a day or three.

When I see birches bend to left and right...

When I see birches bend to left and right...
That famous poem works well here I think. A tiny birch forest at Håga in Västerhaninge, photographed earlier in the week on a gloomy December day.

Green December

Green December
The little park in Västerhaninge. Quiet on this rainy December day, but very popular with the local screaming wino's for most of the year.

Macken

Macken
Swedish slang word of the day. Macken. The name MACK originally came from a company that produced pumps for filling stations back in the 1930s. It was owned by four men, Mathiasson, Andersson, Collin and Key. Since that day the word "Macken" has been used for any local filling station in the country. This "mack" in Tungelsta was once a Koppartrans filling station. Then it became a Shell station. After that it stood abandoned for a few years but now it is a Gulf station. Macken was also a popular TV show back in the mid 1980s.

Klädnypor

Klädnypor A stretch
Swedish word of the day. Clothespins,(in my back garden). Second photo is a bit of flickr fun with that same photo. And if you are equally as bored with the weather as I am, check out how to waste your time doing a similar photo signature in the flickr group for just that.

Monochrome Frost

Frost
My neighbour can be a bit weird. To prevent people from walking across his property,(a tiny forest, not used by anyone for anything, not counting the wildlife), he has had his employees cut down trees and place them on the path to make it trickier to walk there. Obviously no one cares about that and people walk there every day. This is a photo of one such tree. Shot with the new 60mm lens.
