April 4: Stadshuset evening
In the evening I went to check out Stadshuset and Riddarholmskyrkan, because they were both buildings I had admired in photos before ever visiting Stockholm.
Sergelstorg by night.
Still some twilight.
It's nice of them to light up the underpasses so well.
This one's even better.
Stadshuset now fully in view. Also: Orion.
Stadhuset + moon.
Stadhuset, looming, + moon.
I walked along the north side, and this remarkable view across to Södermalm, through the courtyard and the arcade on the other side, was one of the first indications that this was soon to become one of my all-time favorite buildings.
The tower from inside the courtyard.
Another tower, at the southeast corner, injected at an odd angle.
Through the arcade.
Moon + Södermalm, just.
The south face of Stadshuset.
Then also the tower. I still wonder about those tiny illuminated niches in the tower wall.
I'm not sure who this is.
The moon caught in the spire.
The east face, from the bridge to Riddarholmen.
A train rushing on by.
