Different Ways

Different Ways
The walkway to the right is kept free from snow and ice during the Winter. So you can easily run and cycle there. The one to the left not so much. As seen at Hanveden yesterday.

Behind the hedge

Behind The Hedge
This building at Mulsta in Tungelsta, from 1893 was known as a Länsmansboställe, as was the building that stood here before it. For a few centuries many Vassals lived here. I pass by here a couple of times every week and have photographed the building many times before.

Warning sign near Christina's place, I have a weird sense of humor so this makes me smile whenever I see it.

Flooding

Waterfall Islands in the stream Park Bridge Översvämning
It rained two days ago. That is never much fun after a snow fall so yesterday we saw a lot of flooding, and here are four photos to proove that. A waterfall along the walkway at Stav. A red sauna on an new island at Lillhammar. The last two photos are from the park in Tungelsta. All the water in these four photos ended up in the Rocklösaån stream that meander through Tungelsta.

Tilted

Tilted
Sometimes when I am out of photography ideas I shoot Utulity Boxes. This is a parking lot on the Lillgården side at the commuter station in Tungelsta. Pretty sure that I have photographed this utility box before but maybe not with the snow covering the empry parking lot.

At the pop-up cafe

At the pop-up cafe
A cafe opened in the greenhouse in the park in Tungelsta in December of last year. It quickly became quite popular in these Corona times, at least on Saturdays and Sundays when it was open. Back then it was possible to sit outside in the unusually warm winter weather but with the recent snow fall that is no longer possible.

The Bike Rack

The bike rack
An over-snowed and unused bike rack at the commuter station in Tungelsta. In the background a building that today houses a pizzeria, an art store/gallery and a tattoo parlor. When I was a kid back in the 1970s it was a popular cafe where I often hanged with my friends, spending my allowance on the pinball machines while drinking soft drinks. It was also the local post office until all the post offices in Sweden were closed, and also the headquarters for the local political party Socialdemokraterna. Back then the building was painted gray. Today it has a new owner, the construction company Turbinen that are busy building row-houses and a new school on the other side of the railway station.

Letting the grass grow!

Letting the grass grow!
A very optimistic approach in early January. As seen in central Handen earlier this week.
