I'm glad you got out and were able to document it for us. I'd love to learn more about Stockholm. It looks beautiful!

Nicky

Wow Benita, you are full of surprises! What kind of item of yours does the Museum have on show?
It is very nice to see another aspect of the things you do, like this day out. You have taken lovely photos.

See, we rarely get to see the wonderful city you live in, and nor do you! It looks brilliant, you are very lucky.

Nordiska Museet is a perfect visit recommedation for those who want to see a typical Scandinavia life. which items did you work on, as I will look for them next summer visit.

Great tip (as always)! When we were visiting in 2009 we were lucky to catch a Annie Leibovitz exhibition at the Fotografiska (i also prefer "real" photography over arty ones) The pictures you're showing here are stunning.
Have a great day!

Thank you for the great pics, I love Fotografiska. We attended it in summer and the waterfront is sooo beautyfull...
Oh, and the coffee is really tasty, too.

Carin

There you go. You learn something new every day. Not only that you used to work at Nordiska (sound cool), but that there's a photography museum in Stockholm. Must visit next time I'm there.

Looks like you chose a beautiful day for your city trip. The elephant photo is very elephant-y: majestic, large, invoking respect. I like it a lot.

I love posts like this, please take more days off :-)

Dana from CT

Don't worry - we will all pester you to take days off if it means we get to go along :-)
Nick Brandt's photography is just gorgeous. He really captures the essence of his subject doesn't he? I am off to Google him. Thank you for the introduction!

Have you noticed this? :)
PS! Love your blog.

Stockholm is such a lovely city, and that Christmas tree is HUGE! Wow.

Yes, I also love this post. It's nice to see where you live, Benita. And I, too, would like to see more of it, and also would like to know what you worked on at the museum across the water.

=)

Great to take some time out of the 'normal'. The house things don't run away...but that exhibit would have ;)

Älvan

I think I would have enjoyed that exhibition!
Thanks for your tip about the Page One bookstore in Hong Kong, by the way - I took my brother there and we spent almost an hour browsing and choosing and buying books...

Mary Kay

Good for you for trying to take a day off here and there to do something fun! Loved the pictures of Stockholm! We went to Sweden this past summer but didn't get to Stockholm. Loved your country and hope to return in a few years.
My husband is part swedish. I am not but I've become very interested in all things Swedish. So when I found your blog I was thrilled!! You are so very inspiring - love it!!

Lisa Flaherty

Wonderful! What a beautiful city! When we first moved to the Los Angeles, CA area we said we would go explore different parts of this vast, sprawling city, but now 15 years later we rarely do. Thank you for the inspiration to get out there and sight-see at home!

I mainly worked on an exhibition called Swedish History but that was a temporary one which as torn down but when Wille was a baby I went back to do a bit of other work that's still in the permanent Traditions exhibition; a gooseberry bush (I made the gooseberries out of rubber grapes and attached them to real dried gooseberry branches..., a miniature Swedish Christmas dinner table with ham, porridge etc, a funeral wreath and a midsummer's garland if I remember correctly.

We'll be in Stockholm (3rd time = never too much of a good thing !) this summer, so thank you for this idea !!

The elephant portrait is really cute.

I loved his photographs, saw the exhibition when I was in Stockholm in November, so glad my sister suggested it. The view from the restaurant was amazing but so were the prices on food too and I do mean amazingly expensive, rumors say it's really tasty but you sure need a big wallet.
Cheers Anette :-)

frieda

And with 2009 I actually meant 2010 - duh! I get all confused with the new year already in action ;)

Kac (from Prague)

I love this post, thank you!

Michelle

Oh thanks for these photos! I have been reading the Millenium books (Girl w Dragon Tattoo, etc) and they are set in Stockholm. Mikael Blomkvist lives on the waterfront, and when I am reading I like to map the locations on my iPhone so I can follow the story. Love to see these photos now especially!

And of course I was extra interested in Sweden after reading your blog so long!
