#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…

#133 Different Light

What a difference the time of day can do to a picture! I was for a short visit to my birth town Helsingborg, and had the luck of getting a room at the hotel with the most fantastic view of the sea. As I checked in to the hotel, the sun was setting and the…

#128 The film feeling

It is always fun when a film arrives in the mailbox. The other day I got back two films – one Kodak Tri-X and one Kodak Ektar. I used to develop both film and pictures by my self back in the days of film. It was something special to see the picture develop in the…

#127 The point of a story

When we look at pictures we form our own opinions or feelings of the motive. There are some photographers that take pictures that can stand for them selves and tell a story without words. That is not the case for all of us – and certainly not in my case. Take these three pictures. Three…

#126 Inspiration by Milnor

There are a-lot of content about photography out there on the internet. I love it when I find good channels on Youtube with people that have a genuin and passionate approach to their way of doing photography. I love it even more when the channel can stay exactly that genuin and passionate over time. I…

#124 Lennart – A Swedish Photographer

Many of you may have seen the book “A child is born” – perhaps one of the most sold Photo books in the world. The book was made in the first edition back in 1965, by the Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson (1922-2017). I remember seeing the pictures when I was younger, not thinking much about…

#121 Sometimes less is more

This is a picture from the summer of 2016 – one of the first pictures shot with my first Leica M6. We were on a summer festival in our home town Linköping. The Swedish singer Miriam Bryant were giving a concert at the big stage. People were happy – I was happy. Finally I was…

#115 Photography by intention

I would like to be a photographer that takes picture by intention and not by chance – but I am not. At least not enough. That is one thing that I think is a big difference between many amateur photographers [like my self] and professional’s. I often find my self going out to take pictures…

#107 An M4 and a roll of T-Max 100

Back in June things started to go back to normal again. Covid-19 suddenly did not feel like that much of a threat anymore. As the summer got closer – Corona went further away. We started to get reckless – and now it has finally caught up with us. I went out i Linköping, with my…

#106 Covid-Safe Saturday

Saturday and the world is heading into a “second wave” of Covid-19. We try to do things where we can keep our distances to other people. The driving range in November is a good place to be…as long as the temperatur is reasonably ok. We were all alone… After lunch we took a walk in…

# 105 What to do on a sunday?

Sunday. The Corona Virus is again shutting down parts of the society in Sweden. The area where I live is one of the parts that now has a rising amount of infected. Those who can should work from home and we must stay out of stores, librarys and other public places. What can you take…
