#215 Citylife in BNW

I am in one of my Black and White periods at the moment. In a city like Stockholm it can be tempting to shoot color photos. Aspecially around christmas when the whole city is lit up. But I had decided to have my camera set to black and white jpg:s, to get in the right…

#214 Grey grey grey

Yet another gray day here in our small corner of Sweden. I like shooting black and white on days like this. A nice old Kodak Tri-X in the camera gives life to the grayscale. The lone oak tree has been posted on my blog before. One of our walks is passing the tree and every…

#213 Darker

Sweden in November. The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder. Drove to a local farm to buy some eggs today in the afternoon. A really boring day when it comes to photography. But why? Why not take pictures in boring conditions as well? Had to stop and take a picture towars…

#212 Stenshuvud National Park

Our recent trip to Österlen, in the very south of Sweden, included a visit to the National Park Stenshuvud (direct translation; The head of a stone). This was our first time here, so we did not know what to expect… I think it is fair to say that we didn’t expect that much of our…

#211 When things don’t work out…

I am sure you have experienced it. A fantastic journey, beautiful views and many warm feelings. Pictures everywhere. The compositions never ends. Maybe the ultimate photo experience. Then you get home and load the pictures in to your computer. Suddenly the feelings are all gone. The shots are flat, the horizon is slanted and the…

#210 About a Picture

During the initial Covid years many of us – including me – learned to work and live almost all our lives at home. It was then I started to go for a short walk in the morning before work – something I still try to do every now and then. I find it to be…

#209 The largest Cathedral in Sweden

Short trip yesterday to the fourth largest city in Sweden – Uppsala. It was a work trip – but I had time for a short photo session as I arrived before the work started. Where did I go – to Uppsdala Cathedral of course. If you have read this blog before you know that I…

#208 The streets of New York

Back in 2011 I was in New York with my wife and two friends. This was before I heard of ”street photography”. I went there with my Nikon D300s with a 18-200 mm lens and a Canon Powershot S95 in my bag. Now – 11 years later – I have reviewed my pictures with my…

#207 The Leica M6 is back in production

I bought my first Leica M in august 2016 – a silver Leica M6 TTL. That small camera opened up a new world to me. It was a time when I had grown tired of photography. It was all just point and shoot – not the process that photography once was. The M6 brought that…

#206 About a Picture

Woke up early at a hotel in Halmstad (in the soutern part of Sweden). Had an early breakfast and grabbed my camera. I love to get out before the city is awake. When the streets still are more or less empty. A nice way to start a day.

#205 More colors in black and white

Today my Leica M had the Voigtländer 28/2 Ultron mounted. A walk around the nearby town resulted in more black and whites of the beautiful autumn colors… This time I felt like using the great black and white editing software Silver Efex Pro. I grew up with Kodak Tri-X film and that is also what…

#204 About a Picture

Autumn is here for real. It’s getting darker. Rainy days. We have seen the first morning with frost on the lawn. Nature shines of yellow, red and green. I shoot it in black and white – but I see it in color…
