I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Urban poetry

Ceiling pipes in a store in Södermalm.

Living up to Södermalm's reputation as the hippest, edgiest, artiest part of Stockholm, this store was actually a complex, where a home goods shop adjoined a Swedish version of Hold Everything which adjoined a coffee bar. One store just flowed into another, and there were windows in the floor through which you could see people getting haircuts in one of the shops beneath.

But the space was still mostly raw, with an industrial feel, so there was a sense that all of these interesting places to shop just showed up one day, and might vanish again tomorrow.
