Photo Essay: Saltsjöbaden

One fine day (well for about an hour) recently I thought I'd get some sea air and maybe take some photos. I decided to go to Saltsjöbaden, a seaside suburb of Stockholm and the last stop on the lokalbana from Slussen.

The water was sparkling, like small blue crystals, around Slussen. The man in black didn't care.

Autumn light on a mechanics shop.

The rush of trees and train.

Who lives here I wonder? I love their garden.

Stopping at the station. Nobody waiting.

Where is everybody? 

It's hard to believe this is a really popular summer place. Full of people eating ice creams, sunbaking, sailing and swimming.

Boats are being brought in, preparing for the winter of snow and ice.

Almost the only person I saw at the sea.

Aside from a few mothers pushing their prams vigorously.

While the cabins stand deserted.
