Gröna Lund Fairground

It's got to be winter to capture the eerie, abandoned feel of the place. You can shoot the forgotten merry-go-rounds, the deserted roller-coaster and the empty fairytale houses.

Sneak into the forgotten world of the Gröna Lund Fairground, Djurgården, Stockholm in winter time and be drawn into the mysterious and bizarre spot whilst it’s cloaked under the layer of snow. Summer time is not the only season to enjoy “all the fun of the fair”; in winter crowds are dispersed and all you are left with is the eerie feeling of being the only person walking around the fairground, your footprints following you.

What’s in it for Lomographers? Lack of people stepping into your shot, this fairground is full of colorful, sleeping, mechanical structures, all waiting for you to capture their vivid shades on the background of crisp Stockholm snow. Any angle you snap these eerie machines will lend bright, puzzling results to your photos. Venture forth if you dare and be mindful it is only your footsteps following you!
