Feeding the ducks

Mellanberg
A new urban runoff is under construction here near the old farm Mellanberg. The rainwater will run through Mellanberg and down to this dam at Dammträsk. There will also be a bike path and a promenade here that will connect Vega, Kvarntorp, and Kolartorp. The woman feeding the ducks from the new pier comes here every now and with her dog.

And the award goes to...

And the award goes to...
...any other bridge really. I call this one the bridge to nowhere. Mostly because I took a photo of it before it was finished. But it is a bit on the ugly side.

Oat/Havre

Oat/Havre
One of two oat fields that the farmer from Nedersta gård were out harvesting earlier in the week. So Swedish word of the day is Havre, Oat.

What symbolises growth and progress?

What symbolises growth and progress?
This used to be a little forest with a bunch of old Summer houses. All but one house disappeared quite a few years ago. The new apartment buildings here at Kvarteret Sjögläntan in Handen are just a short walk from the Rudan nature reserve, and it is also very close to the mall and the commuter station so this will most likely be a popular place to live. brfsjoglantan1.se/

Last day of Summer? Solbadare Butterfly Guy Puzzled
Four more photos from what might have been the last real Summer day. From my walk along the water near Tantolunden at Södermalm in Stockholm. It was a fantastic day.

Not so colorful cars

Cadillac Coupe DeVille Chevy Raggare
The younger "raggare" are more into this sort of ride. What we call a "råttsoffa". And they usually like to party 24/7.

Fitting In

Moonshine Cruiser Raggarfrilla
Two portraits of what an old-school Raggare used to look like and continues to do even today. The mustache of the day at the big Greaser meet,(Raggarträff), at Larsboda in Farsta belongs to one of the members of the organizing raggare club Moonshine Cruisers. The second photo shows a guy from Wermdö if I remember correctly. I have photographed him before because of his "raggarfrilla". That is the name of his hairstyle.
