Night Cycle Ride Around Södermalm

I host a Meetup group for people who like to take bike rides at night in Stockholm. Last Friday we went for the first ride this year, first around Kvarnholmen, and then around Södermalm. There was a short but intense rainshower as we reached Södermalm, and it left a very special atmosphere.

Birds and Blossoms

Playing around with the Bigma. I went for a bike ride but couldn't go very far from home - so I figured I'd bring the lens, just sit down somewhere, and wait for something to show up. Something did.

Stockholm Lighthouse

A set of residential buildings on the site of the old "Qvarnen Tre Kronor" mill and grain silo that stood there from 1897 to 2016. The mill was at the center of Sweden's baking industry with the Kvarnholm Bakery next door, but by the 80s it was no longer profitable and by the time it was demolished it had not been in use since 1992. It is owned by BRF Panorama and you can read more about the architecture and history in Sweco's description of the building. Since this is a relatively new building, being built in the year 9 AGSV (After Google Street View), you can take a stroll through the old industrial zone by selecting historical imagery.
