Jetty Remodeling

Jetty Remodeling
The wobbly jetty at Årsta Havsbad is still wobbly, but it is currently being remodelled. Parts of it was unsafe according to Svenska livräddningssällskapet, (the life saving society). After a bit of lobbying from the local samfällighet, (you might have to Google that), the Haninge municipality have decided to chip in with 750 000 SEK for that work. The dive tower that used to be here has been moved to another jetty closer to the military base.

That Old Tree

That Old Tree
Crap weather all weekend. Gray skies with rain and snow falling off and on, so I decided to stay indoors and watch lot of Netflix, (After Life), and HBO, (The Good Fight). Before that, (on Wednesday), I made a quick stop at the old tree for my 555th photo of the Swedish Whitebeam.

Not so symmetrical

Ansiktshalvor
If you have too much free time on your hands here is how to spend some of it. Take a selfie with one eye open and the other eye closed. Preferably outdoors somewhere. Back home a few hours later open the photo in Photoshop. Copy the left side of your face and paste it so that you get a portrait made from that half of your not so symmetrical face. Then do the same with the right half of your face. Save both portraits and create a diptych from the portraits. Upload to the internet and wait for the applause or laughter.

Nynäs Havsbad The Spa
I have a new,(ish),rule. Every time I take a walk along the picturesque Strandvägen in Nynäshamn I have to stop and take a few photos of the century old spa at Nynäs Havsbad, and here are two photos I took last weekend

Illustration

Illustration Parkstråket Sjögläntan I'm guessing it will be a year or so before this illustration will become reality here at Parkstråket in Handen. The project is called Sjögläntan. Two hundred new apartments are currently under construction here.

The rocky beach at the Knappelskär peninsula in Nynäshamn. It will be a little longer before the bay fills up with yachts, sunbathers and kayakers. On my visit I counted around 50 people out walking.

Public Toilet

Public Toilet
There are a few public toilets along the picturesque Strandvägen walk in Nynäshamn. Sadly it looks like someone decided to burn down this one over the weekend. The fire even made it into the local paper which I guess is good news as it means that nothing worse happened.

Foggy Day

Foggy Day
The fog rolled this afternoon after last nights rain. Not too cold, a few degrees above zero. Stopped for a photo of the colorful row houses at Lillgården in Tungelsta. Read somewhere that they were up for a second architectural award.

Fettisdagsbulle

Fettisdagsbulle
We ate six million Semla's in Sweden yesterday during Fettisdagen. Fat Tuesday. It is a seasonal bun,(not really), with many names. Fettisdagsbulle, semla, hetvägg. I only eat the traditional version but there are people out there,(no names), that create and enjoy new versions of the semla.
