A Winter Walk in Central Stockholm


It’s a nice thing to have a spare hour in a foreign city and have no real idea where to go. 

Just walking sometimes leads you to some very interesting places. Snow covered parks where people walk their dogs. 


A few photographs and thoughts from around the Kungsholmen park area on a cold November afternoon . 

One striking thing about Central Stockholm is the ease whereby people can walk and cycle. The cycle lanes are often as wide as many roads. 

The November Winter is Starting in Stockholm


Stockholm is a city that changes a lot with the seasons. Sitting on the edge of winter it is grey and cold. 

Snow is settled and preparing to allow the rain to turn it to grey slush. 

Even the photographs taken in colour look monochrome . 

The people look cold. Walkways are not easy to use with only the bicycle lanes having made friends with the salt or grit. 


The only clear colour comes from the plethora of traffic lights and pedestrian crossing lights. 

The days are short and even by 3 pm it looks like night is preparing to visit. And it is cold. Two degrees. A little rain. Makes it feel colder than freezing. 


Triangular hotels give curious patterns and reflections.
