Pizza place at Jägartorp in Västerhaninge. Never eaten there. But I have been inside a few times over the years. This was a print shop back in the mid-1980s. Day 91 in my project 100 Days Of Darkness.

Darkness Falls

Darkness Falls
The Lower Lake at Rudan would be a good setting for a horror movie. There's no outdoor lighting here at all so when it gets dark it gets really dark. But if you want to shoot that movie you need to be quick as the municipality are currently busy setting up lampposts around the lake.

Äldreboende

Äldreboende
Swedish word of the day. Äldreboende. Retirement home. Ros-Anders Gård. Named after Gustaf Andersson, who opened one of the first greenhouse nurseries in Tungelsta, on this property back in 1907. Snapped from the hill at Bergdalen where my great grandfather Johan Fredrik Jansson opened his greenhouse nursery the same year. That one is still in operation today, but under a different name, Blomorado. Day 87 in my project 100 Days Of Darkness.

Coca Cola European Partners Sverige AB

Coca Cola European Partners Sverige AB
An office building at the Coca-Cola plant in Jordbro. The sugar train arrives at the plant every morning at nine o'clock filled with "sockerbetor" from Skåne. I don't think I have ever shot the train arriving, so I guess I will have to do that one day. Day 85 in my project 100 Days Of Darkness.

Saltwater Bay Fishing

Saltwater Bay Fishing
Mid-Winter in Sweden. A lone angler fishing from the Horsfjärden bay at Årsta Havsbad just before sunset yesterday. I told him that he probably enjoyed the social side of fishing. He found it very relaxing but hadn't caught any fish on this occasion.

A Winter Sunset

A Winter Sunset
Cycling home earlier in the week I stopped for a photo of the colorful sunset at the new row-houses at Lillgården in Tungelsta. I had the 60mm lens on the Canon 77D body, so I had to shoot it as a panorama. This is twelve photos stitched together.
