Winter vs. Autumn

Winter vs. Autumn

Time for another now and then diptych. To the left how the restaurant at Allévägen in Tungelsta looks this winter with lots of snow and a very icy road. To the right how it looked back in September 2007 as a few workers where giving the old building a new layer of paint. The restaurant has changed name (and owners), a few times in recent years. They have Karaoke nights here quite often, so you will never find me in there. This was once the post office and before that a Konsum grocery store. When I was a kid it was a cafe here where I used to play pinball machines with my friends. They also served delicious meatball sandwiches back then. Today it's more of a pizza place, and in the summer time the veranda will always be filled with thirsty beer lovers.

Nice photos, Steffe. And I enjoyed your commentary very much. Pinball machines, heh? So that's where you wasted your youth? ;-))

Are you sure you don't want a little more snow this winter?

Meatball sandwiches and pizza I can go for. The karaoke they can have. Great "then and now" Steffe.

la baraque est plus blanche en automne qu'en hiver ;) cela doit venir que la neige prend toute la lumiere

Pinball machines... Now they are much more complicated. It's worrying that I remember fondly all those wasted hours and I din't even play much, just hung there with friends.

I enjoyed this look at a special place at home. Nice shot.

I hope you got the seed for the birds and maybe the squirrels.

I like the new paint much better than the old plain white paint! Not much of a karaoke fan either.

They offer take-away lunch as well. Just to reduce the risk for any close encounter of a Karaoke kind.

I think I prefer the autumn look, myself. What a drastic contrast!!
