Grand

postaday, Stockholm, Weekly Photo Challenge

The twin towers on the image are Sweden’s first ‘scyscrapers’, situated on Kungsgatan in Stockholm. The towers were built in the mid 1920’s, 60 m high; consisting of 17 floors. For several decades these buildings were a symbol of urbanity and decadence.

My photo is some years old. It is larger and more intensely coloured than what I normally show here, but I was looking for something Grand – the theme of this week’s WordPress photo challenge.

  1. Väl vald bild för den här veckans utmaning. De tornen var GRAND på den tiden.

    När jag försökte tänka på nå’n bild för den här veckan, det enda som poppade upp var att jag önskade jag haft en av Grand Hôtel i Stockholm 😀

  7. Jag vet inte riktigt var de ligger, men slående vackert ljus på dem. Ljuset i fönstren förhöjer bilden också.
