#189 Highlights and a 21mm lens

I have shot this windows [in the Cathedral of Linköping] before and posted on this blog – but not shot with a 21mm lens. The details in the glass is incredible. I have started to really like the 21mm focal length – even though there are no 21mm framelines in the Leica M. A couple…

#188 The Strait between Sweden and Denmark

I grew up in a city by the ocean – Helsingborg. When you live by the ocean, your life is formed around it – without you knowing it. In the summer we took our bicycles to the beach. When there was a storm we went to the ocean to feel the power of the wind…

#186 Copenhagen in Black & White

I spent my 50:th birthday in Copenhagen with my family, a few days ago. Well…at least a couple of hours of the day. Lets just say that this was not one of the better days to travel by train in Sweden and Denmark… I used my MP240 to do some street photography around the city….

#185 Lake Vättern in the viewfinder

A beautiful day by lake Vättern – the second largest lake in Sweden. My trusty Leica M240P was equipped with a Zeiss ZM 2,8/21 Biogon. To compose the picture, when using wide lenses with an M, I like to use an external viewfinder. I wear glasses – and it is almost impossible to see the…

#184 An Unexpected Church

Like a medieval castle it raises over the land – the church of Orlunda. Orlunda is not exactly a place you see from the highway. I first visited the small village about twenty years ago, as I drove around without a plan with my camera. As I understand, the church is closed at the moment….

#183 The Icebreakers are resting

Three of the Swedish Icebreakers at rest in the late summer evening. The three ships of the ”Atle-class” were built in the 1970:s and are soon to be replaced by new ships, if all goes according to plan. When I was about ten years old, there was this tv-program about a reaserch journey to the…

#182 Todays Catch

The fisherman is taking care of todays catch of nice looking Salmons. It doesn’t get any fresher than this. Pictures from Luleå today.

#181 The Bridge

There is this bridge outside Luleå that I have wanted to shoot for a long time. The bridge is called ”Old Gäddvik Bridge” and is a classic construction that is often seen in Sweden. I just haven’t had a good opportunity to stop and make something nice of the bridge. This time I was lucky….

#180 Golf Season

The Swedish golf season is on. As usually I bring my camera and try and take some shots between the shots… The pictures today are from one of my Swedish favourites; Ombergs Golf Resort.

#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…

#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…
