Landfall Stockholm

Posted by Scott

Another city, another cliche aerial shot from the wing. Flew into Stockholm this evening, haven’t seen much of the city yet but it seems like a very interesting place.  It’s rather cold for what I am used to, I think it’s nearly freezing outside; about 0°C. This place really drives home the weakness of the US Dollar: I walked by a McDonalds tonight and noticed that a Big Mac will run you 60 SEK, the equivalent of about $10 USD. Yes, $10 Big Macs. Will be posting some shots from Amsterdam soon, they had the most beautiful clouds there.

Don’t want to spoil your appalling discovery, but I think you mean 60 SEK :) Unless Stockholm have sudden run out of Big Mac supplies…

Beautiful shot!

Nice, I’ll be going there tomorrow (yes, because of the workshop on Friday) :)
As people pointed out, a little typo there, 600 SEK for a Big Mac would be insane. You can at least count one sold print for Friday, guaranteed, and that would give you almost two expensive Big Mac’s ;)

Anyway, hope you enjoy your visit, I’ll be sure to enjoy the workshop. And that’s a beautiful cliche aerial shot from the wing by the way, love how the window frame creates a high contrast fade at the top, and love the toning.

Haha, that’s kinda funny man.

Like the two guys before me said, a Big Mac is 60 SEK rather than 600. But, I think you’ve possibly misunderstood the value of our currency, or you slipped writing this post, because $10 USD is kinda right, 60 SEK (kronor we call them) equals about $9 USD. Naturally, then, 600 SEK equals a little over $90 USD.

Hope you’ll have a nice visit to Sweden man! By the way, how much is a Big Mac in San Francisco anyhow?

Stockholm is a beautiful place. I’ve only been there for a few weeks during the summer, but I intend to visit again. I plan to live there for at least some of my life.

If the sea hasn’t frozen over, try and take a trip around the islands while you are there. They are wonderful. Transholmen on a warm, sunny day really is like paradise.

Marcus Evans: “The gradient on the top left looks odd though.”

I believe that is the edge of the window. Lovely photo though. It breathes a bit of new life into a old cliché.

Welcome to Sthlm! don’t forget to feed the polarbears :)
oh and for some nice kodak spots try walking from subw.stn “slussen” to “marietorget”, those old blocks above the waterline/road has a really nice feel to them, as has “gamla stan/old town” aswell.
