Aside from exercising more another aim of mine is to take a day off now and then (ideally every week but we all know that’s not likely to happen) and do something other than working on the house and blogging about it. My first such day occurred last week when I went to Fotografiska. It’s the photographic museum here in Stockholm. They’ve had an exhibition with photographs by Nick Brandt which ended on Sunday and I didn’t want to miss it.
This museum is actually a great tip if you’re visiting Stockholm and are at least somewhat interested in photography.
I thoroughly recommend having lunch in the restaurant on the second floor. I have no idea if the food’s any good (it was super crowded and besides I’d just eaten) but this is the view from the museum and its restaurant!
Oh and, see that building with the pointy bits just to the right of the ship? That’s Nordiska Museet – the Nordic museum where I used to work. That’s another museum I can recommend. There are actually still a few items in the museum that I made about 17 years ago. I took Wille there a couple of years ago and it was really fun to realize that some of it is still shown.
The Nick Brandt exhibition was awesome. I’m not a big fan of too arty photography or too arty art for that matter but his photos of wild animals are amazing,
I loved the wild cats in particular. So regal.
All in all a lovely day which I ended by waking back through the city and doing a bit of shopping. Here’s to more of the same in 2012!
