#165 Boring morning

A short while ago I started an Instagram account, where I planned to post 3×2 black and white pictures from my life. The idea was to use pictures more or less direct from the camera. Now I think – why Instagram? I have my own place here… This is a picture from the other morning….

#164 Not going professional

There are a great deal of photographers on the internet, making videos and other nice content about photography. A usual topic is how to make money on your photography or become a professional photographer. Wouldn’t that be a dream? Make a living on photography. I have never taken the step to try and become a…

#163 Winter photos from Vadstena

A night with constant snowfall in our part Sweden. There was lot of snow to move before we could get our car out of the garage. Drove for about half an hour to the small town of Vadstena. In my bag I had packed my digital M and my three lenses. Started off with some…

#162 Just for fun

I love taking pictures for no special purpose, other than for fun. No need to feel any pressure for getting a perfect picture or not getting a picture at all. Still every now and then I find my self thinking about why I should take a picture of a scene. Thoughts like; “I have taken…

#161 Changing my scanning technique

Up until now I have always used different flatbed scanners for scanning my analogue film negatives. The results has been good most of the times – but I have suspected that it could have been better. Aspecially dense color negatives have been hard to get as good as I would like. The last couple of…

#155 Waking up

Spent a couple of days in Stockholm, just for fun. Had a camera in my bag this time (usually I have it in my hand or at least over my shoulder…). Took it out every now and then – but the main purpose of the trip was not photography this time… I love a city…

#145 Canvas Icons

Every now and then I visit Cathedrals in the cities I pass by. I am not a religious person, but there is almost always something to shoot or discover in a Cathedral. On my last visit to the Cathedral of Linköping I ”found” some beautiful ”canvas icons”. The ”canvas icons” are part of an exibition…

#143 Close enough?

I have always liked black and white film photography. I started out with Kodak Tri-X in the 1980:s and I still shoot it from time to time. But the thing is – todays cameras and post processing can make pictures almost as good as my old black and white Tri-X pictures. Sometimes even better… Recent…

#142 Feeling free

I took a trip to the sea, the other day. I was away for work, and had som time to spare between assignments. I found this small harbour in the outer archipelago and parked the car. I was completly alone in the harbour. Just me and the sea. The wind was blowing rather strong and…

#141 Lack of motivation

Sometimes it is hard to find motivation. I have suffered from loss of motivation for my photography for a while now. I have used my camera – but the result just doesn’t seem to make me excited. They are just boring pictures. I have carried my camera around several beautiful places the last few weeks…

#136 Unique Places

Do we need go travel half way around the world to take photos of unique places? The answer is of course NO. Often the most unique place – at least to the rest of the world – is probably right outside your door. I probably made hundreds of walks around in the small village where…

#133 The Sea

There is something special about the sea. Maybe it is because I have moved away from it? I lived in Helsingborg my first 25 years – a city also called ”The Pearl of the straight” (…at least by the locals). In 1997 I moved away from the sea – and I have missed it ever…
