Stockholm is well known for the art in the subway stations. I did not spend a lot of time on this trip in Stockholm because I wanted to avoid being too close to other people so I left country side pretty quick after arrival and only spent one night before flying back to Switzerland. And for this reason, I had a limited time in Stockholm (again) and could only investigate a few things… And this included the subway station in the central train station of Stockholm.
I had to pay a single ride fee to get into the subway. The main issue was finding what I was looking for – it took me almost 30 minutes to get to the location I took the photograph of. The problem was not finding it, the issue was that there were too many cool things to take a photograph of.

No Tripod? No problem.
Well, sometimes it can be and then the only option you have is to increase the ISO. I never put my camera to auto-ISO because I think it will add too much. Especially when I can do certain corrections later on in Adobe Lightroom.
Whenever you can, find a place were you can set your camera down. Put the camera to self-timer so you will not touch it when you release the shutter and off you go. Usually in the subway they do not allow you to take photos on a tripod, which I understand because people are commuting. I took a lot of photos in subway stations like this, like the ones you might have already seen in Montreal or New York City.
