The Swedish Elk

The Elk, or Moose if you’re American, have become a symbol of Sweden. So this is a very Swedish picture with both Swedish flags and elks. The picture is captured inside the food hall at Östermalm, Stockholm. It’s a HDR from three handheld exposures. I was trying out ISO 800 here and it works pretty well, but in full format the poorer quality is clearly visible.

The Food Hall at Östermalstorg

Today I upload something more colorful, Östermalms Saluhall. THis is IMO the most iconic building in this part of Stockholm. It was opened on the first of December 1888 after just 6 months of construction. The architects behind this beautiful brick structure was Isak Gustaf Clason and Kasper Salin, two relatively young, but already successful architects. Clason and Salin got inspired by new brick architecture in northern Germany, Italy and France which they had studied during a scholarship-funded trip. In France they took particular interest in the numerous monumental and sophisticated cast iron structures that would later be used as the frame for Östermalms Saluhall’s brick cathedral. Clason later become a professor of architecture with buildings such as the Nordic Museum to his name.
