#178 The Big Apple

Railway stations can be really beautiful buildings. At least the older stations. They knew how to design buildings back in the days. Just check out the ”Swedish Big Apple” on the top of the roof. They don’t make them like this any more…

#177 The Restaurant

Yesterday I was working at a hotel and found a place in the restaurant where I could have a small meeting with a colleague. After an hour or so I started to see the restaurant around me. I had my Zeiss 2/35 on my M240P and opened up the apreture fully to get the short…

#176 About a Picture

Construction sites are not always nice to look at. This is one that I found on the way back to my hotel, in central Gothenburg. One of the better ways to mask a site like this.

#175 Under a bridge

Heading home after a days work, waiting for a train. Picked up my camera from the bag, looked around me and searched for something interesting to photograph. Nothing. Took a walk and suddenly I was under this bridge. And there I found my shots…

#174 Taking my M out

I recently found a good price for a Zeiss 2,8/21mm for my Leica M camera. Yesterday I tried it out in a nearby forest. I haven’t used my M-cameras so much for outdoor or landscape photography before. Often I take my Fujis instead, as I go out for a hike or something like that. That…

#172 Carlskrona

Yesterday was a gray and slightly rainy day in southern Sweden. I turned ”black and white”. My intention was to take some pictures in one of the old churches in the city – but as I got there, the church was closed. In the park I found that all the benches had the citys name…

#171 Going back to Zeiss

I have done the unthinkable. I have sold my Leica lenses and gone back to Zeiss again. When I bought my first Leica back in 2016 I initially used Voigtländer lenses and after a while I settled in for two Zeiss lenses; the 2,8/35 Biogon and the 2/50 Planar. These two lenses were great. They…

#170 About a Picture

This morning I was on my way southbound along Lake Vättern. Usually I choose the freeway when I travel in my work, but this time I took the old highway part of the journey. When I got close to the small city Gränna I just had to stop and take out my camera. This time…

#169 It’s time for photography

The inspiration comes and goes. This year has so far been a low point in my photography. When I look in my Lightroom Library I see that I have shot 1057 pictures som far. That’s terrible… The simple reason is that the year has been full of other things and there are only so much…

#168 Project update

In 2021 I starded a small project; visit all Nature Reserves in my county. There are only about 300 of them. My problem is that I never seem to finish my projects – I get bored or forget about them completley. However this is a project that I get help to remember. Both my wife…

#167 Is the Leica M11 the last real M?

Just to sort things out first. I love Leica M cameras (but I am not an expert on Leica M:s – I only express my opinions) – that is pretty obvious if you have read this blog before. I love the process of taking pictures. For me it is not about getting a technically perfect…
