#231 Going Crazy

I found this fun little collection of small sculptures today, as I was out walking. Tried to find a way to shoot them that maybe could be a little interesting…or at least nice. The light was rather nice as well. Took a couple of pictures and finally chose one. Normally I would have placed a…

#230 About a Picture

The sun is shining low between the buildings. It is almost impossible to see down the street. People are reduced to silhouettes in the strong hard light. But they don’t care. They are just enjoying the beautiful day in Stockholm…

#229 About a Picture

Another picture of my good old oaktree. The sun is still not high over the horizon – even though the time was about ten in the morning. Before lunch today it almost felt like spring was in the air. But then again – it is only the last days of January. Spring may have made…

#228 The Semi Final

The World Handball Championship 2023 (mens) is almost over. Sweden and France played one of the Semifinals yesterday. We decided to take the car to Stockholm and attend the game. Warm up of the audience with an old popular Swedish song – Unchained Light [I believe the English version was called]. If this had been…

#227 About a Picture

Another year has passed. The traditional Swedish ”Semla” is in every café again. Originally it was only served on special tuesday – Shrove Tuesday – 47 days before Eastern, but now they can be found more or less from Christmas Day. I try and only eat one or two per year, so it can remain…

#226 Frost in a different way

It is a – nowadays – typical on and off winter in southern Sweden. For now we are having a couple of minus centigrades. The good thing about that is that the frost is making the landscape really beatutiful. We were on our way south when I saw this fantastic church – Säby church. I…

#225 About a Picture

When you stay at Scandic Hotel Swania in Trollhättan you may be in for a surprise if you are new in town. Just outside your window you hear a bell and some strange sounds. Then there is this low frequency ”thump…thump…thump…” that seem to get closer and closer. Then you look outside the window…and see…

#224 About a Picture

In my birth town Helsingborg there is this coffee shop / café that has always been there. The coffee grinders in the window has been running as long as I can remember. The thing is – I have never been inside, as I can remember. I didn’t go in this time either. But next time…

#223 Missed Leica-years

In the early 1990:s I attended a couple of photography courses in the evenings. We learned composition, light, tried out new cameras and spent much time in the darkroom. My favourite camera I got to try out was the Hasselblad. I can’t remember wich model – but that doesn’t matter. The square format was fun…

#222 Gear

Rainy and cold outside. Got an idea to make a page about gear for my Blog. No affiliate links to make money – just a little about my photography gear. The gear doesn’t matter is what we hear everywhere…but it does. At least for me. It doesn’t make the pictures that much better…but it feels…

#221 Frosty Christmas Day

In Sweden we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day is a day to relax, spend time with family and eat food from yesterday… The weather was fantastic before noon. The nature white of frost. We went for a nice walk on the nearby countryside. Felt like using my X-T2 today and mounted the XF50-140/2,8….

#220 A 50mm day

Walked the streets of Vadstena again today. Just wanted to make some last minute buys before Christmas. Of course I brought my camera and one lens. Only took my Zeiss 2/50 Planar with me today. I really like to shoot this lens wide open. It is dead sharp and the out of focus areas are…
