Time Attack – A Few Mor Pictures From The Kinnekulle Circuit

The first post from this Time Attack event was missing a few pictures due to time restraints on my part, but here goes. 🙂

Ex Factory – Where Cementa Used To Live

 

The Cement Factory was an important part of the prosperous development of  20th century Sweden. In the mid 1970’s, competition stiffened and the site was deemed too small to be profitable in the long term. In 1979 the machinery stopped for the last time. Quite a few jobs disappeared, but since small businesses have been thriving in the area in increasing numbers after WW2, most of the workforce found new jobs over time. In just a few years after Cementa closed it’s doors, Paroc opened up manufacturing of stone based wool for insulation and is today the largest employer in HĂ€llekis. Population dropped by about 30% from WW2 up to 1970, and has since stayed pretty much the same. The surrounding landscape including Kinnekulle and lake VĂ€nern offers stunning scenery that show lots of trace of the historic importance of the land around Kinnekulle, including Swedens oldest functioning church VĂ€sterplana Kyrka and Husaby, where Swedens first christian king was christened and baptized.

Well, depends on the demolition AND the photographer. Right? 😉

I got a panic-call from a woman at a number in a small community in the Southern part of the country, and since I am located on the West Coast, I thought maybe it was the wrong number. But no, panic and hurry, thecustomer, NKR Demolition Sweden,  needed someone to document a complicated demolition of a bridge for power-cables in a environmentally protected area. They wanted it reportage-style, and I don’t often do that kind of stuff, but what the heck; I had time to spare and it would probably be pretty relaxed, so I said yes. When I arrived at the scene later the same day, I understood why they wanted photographs. This was a complicated thing. Normally they would just have blasted the thing with dynamite or had a huge excavator to crush the thing into the stream, and then dig the rubble up and shit it away. Now the had to build a support-structure, rest the bridge on that and roll it off like a rail-cart out of concrete. PLUS: the bridge was too heavy for any crane big to fit in there to lift in one piece, so it had to be cut up. The put on a lorry and rolled off the premises. And this is what it looked like! Photos of slow, clean demolition. I think they turned out pretty nice! 🙂

This house was occupied just months before, until the woman living there died of old age. The current owner, her son, grew up there. You could feel and smell peoples lives in there, in the wallpaper, the left behind curtains and furniture. The dated and degraded interior holds a melancholic beauty to them. When you read this it’s all gone. The house has been sold to be torn down and the plot used for a new, much more luxurious villa. Only had time for a few fast snaps. And now, soon, no-one will remember and the photos might be the only proof there was ever anyone living there.

Did the puzzle ever get laid?

What secrets does that sofa-bed hold?

Fall comes late this year...

My number one hobby is cars and racing cars. This picture is from a track-meet with Locost Sweden, a seven-escque replicas builders club. That means people that build cars that resemble the Lotus Super Seven sportscar that even competed in Formula-1 a few rounds, with suprisingly good results even though a total underdog when it comes to horsepower. Small, light and very quick through the corners. The most fun you can have on a slate of tarmac for less money than a Ariel Atom. This particular car belongs to Morty.
