The dark side of minimalism

Adventsljusstake
Windows at the newly redesigned Najaden building at Rudsjöterrassen on Sunday afternoon. One or two rooms were lit up and I noticed a few people in one office, but most of the lights were out so when I spotted this "adventsljusstake" in one window I knew that I ha to get a shot of that.

Shop 'til You Drop

Shop 'til You Drop
It's that time of the year again when many people shop 'til they drop. Here is a look at a Christmas light feature above one entrance to the mall in Handen.

Glowing in the dark

Thermal Power Plant
Stock market line graph? Electrocardiogram? Heart monitor line? Nope, but a line that you can see glowing in the dark at the thermal power plant, Drefvikens Värmeverk in Jordbro this time of the year.

Illuminated Tree

Illuminated Tree
I don't care much for Christmas, as a holiday, but anything that will help to light up a dark December day will get my approval. This was taken just after 1500 hours the other afternoon near the Västerhaninge shopping centre.

Radhus

Radhus
This was the scene at Slätmossen in Handen yesterday. A thin layer of snow on the ground. The cold weather has returned and with it some new snow. Swedish word of the day. Radhus. Row houses.

That Old Tree

That Old Tree
The old tree just after sunset yesterday afternoon. The day started with sunshine and a blue sky. Then came the rain,(see the rainbow snap from yesterdays post). When the rain stopped I was sitting at the cafe, and as it started to get dark I pedalled for home and this was the only pit stop.

Rainbow over the towers

Rainbow
Rainbow over the water towers in Handen. Fourteen photos stitched together. Shot with the Canon 6D and the Nifty Fifty lens. It was raining as I took the photos and I stood unprotected so I had to be quick. The buildings in front of the towers was once part of the Fredrika Bremer secondary school.

Minimalistic Architecture

Blue Sky
The Najaden building dates back to the early 1980s. It was a horrible looking building at the Rudsjöterrassen in Handen, overlooking the lakes at the Rudan nature reserve. It's an office building with a hotel, gym, and much more. It got a new owner a while back, and is currently undergoing a major facelift. Most of it behind curtains so to speak but a little over a week ago they removed some of those curtains and out came a very sleek and minimalistic design. If you are strong enough, Press here to see the old design. They are not finished yet but I will take more photos in the coming months.

Building Site

Building Site
Tuvvägen in Handen is a busy building site at the moment. You can see three apartment buildings currently under construction in this photo and also one that was finished earlier in the year. I'm sure it will look less messy when they are done here.
