Winter at Barbro's Place

Winter at Barbro's Place

Once upon a time there was a mill at this property near the Rocklösaån stream in Tungelsta. After the mill closed in the late 1940s' (it was two hundred years old by then),the place turned into a junk-yard with many rusty old cars. The mill and the junk-yard was owned by a man called Löfqvist. The remains of the mill was burned down in the 1970's.Today my mother's hairdresser Barbro owns the place.

The weather has changed a bit in the last few days. From -14 C and snow fall to +2 C. But it's still snowing!

Red photographs so beautifully, and this is a perfect "postcard" for the holidays. I always appreciate the information that you add to your posts; makes viewing the photos more interesting! It's still snowing here, too!

If this is owned by a hairdresser, my guess is that the inside has a creative style. Lots of potential for the decor.

This looks like a warmer, wet snow was falling, based on the fact that the flakes are large enough to show so well in your photo. My guess is that you slowed down the shutter speed to make the falling snow more visible against the red back ground, unless it was snowing really hard.

Merry Christmas Steffe. Thanks for the gift of old trees, interesting faces, colorful landscapes and great stories. Here's to more of the same in the year to come. I have learned a lot from you - especially the courage to speak to strangers who often lead lives so different from my own.

Looks very different from the time I used to go there, when Sune Löfqvist was a classmate of mine at Tungelsta school.

Red on white - for real, just marvellous. Glad parts of the old mill are still preserved.

Hello Steffe

Hope you had a fabulous Christmas.

Hello all.

You always need to add some local history to the photos if you have some that is. Glad you appreciate that Kate.

You could be on to something there Dave.

Thanks for those kind words Antjas. I hope I will be able to get a few more portraits soon.

Sune lives along Södertäljevägen these days I think Lennart.
