My latest photo project. The redesigned water towers in Handen. The official unveiling is next week when the lights will be turned on. Whenever I am in the area I have tried to shoot the towers from a different angle. Biking through the industrial area a while back I noticed this old street lamp at the Posten Företagcenter so I stopped for a few photos.

This is a very odd looking dog, or an odd looking dog sculpture. Made by the artist Ragnhild Alexandersson who specializes in that sort of thing. You can find it on the lawn in the inner yard at Poseidons gränd in Handen.

Whenever I see a stolen and dumped car I usually inform the municipality about it. I did so a little over a week ago when I had seen a Volvo being smashed up at a shopping centre but that car (link), is still there. This car stands at the Industrial area in Jordbro. At a bus stop. Owned by a woman who lives not far from here (thank you Internet). It's been there for at least one week now. This photo was supposed to be a quality bokeh panorama, made from photos taken with the nifty fifty, but when I stitched the photos I realised that I had missed one photo! But as I am sure the car is still there I could always try again...

My mother have home care. Three times a day she gets a little help from Haninge hemtjänst. They prepare her lunch and help her with clothing, and toilet visits if necessary. They also see to it that she takes her medicine. They did one better today. They baked her some "kubbar" using my grandmothers recipe. And they were very tasty.

Suddenly I can't handle the cold any more. Out riding the bike yesterday my hands froze despite the fact that I was wearing my expensive winter gloves. But I did manage to get a few macro photos of ice crystals next to the path close to the old tree.

I shot one of my first ever portraits of a stranger here a few eons ago. It is a bench at the nature park, Slätmossen in Handen, overlooking a pond. Ever since that day I have always wanted to take another portrait here, but with a difference. If and when it happens he or she would have to climb up that birch tree.

Winter is here. The temperature dropped to freezing yesterday. I was prepared for that but it was a very cold bike ride. It felt more like -10C, probably because it was grey and windy. I stopped at the nature park and ice had formed on one of the ponds. As I'm typing this it is a few degrees below zero but at least the sun is shining from a blue sky.

Symmetry is important don't you think? So when I look at this façade (it's the new retirement home in Tungelsta) I count three missing windows! Oh, and if you take a closer look you will be able to see a ghost in one of the windows.
