#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…

#104 Making Collections

I have added a new section to my site; Collections. When I was a boy I collected different things like stamps and coins. I don´t think that is something kids do today. I still have my old albums in a box in the garage. Every tenth year I open the box and look at them….

#103 A morning outdoors

This morning I woke up early and set out to shoot some pictures on the countryside nearby. I made some coffee and a sandwich and packed in my bag, along with my Fujifilm X-T2 and Leica M. I had hoped for a cold morning when the mist is hanging low over the fields as the…

#101 Film vs Digital

A while ago I made a post about film simulations for Fujifilm cameras. Now I have made a small test to compare to real film. I used a Fuji X100V simulating Kodak Porta 400 and a Leica M4 with a roll of Kodak Porta 400. You can slide between the film version and the digital…

#97 Favourite cities

Just as some cities can surprise – some just are your favourites. Places you come back to over and over again. Karlskrona, in the very most south eastern part of sweden, is one of my favourites. I come here every now and then, both in my work and private. I always try and take a…

#95 Surprised by a city

Sometimes you get ”visually surprised” by a place. You may have built up your own picture of the place in your mind, and then you stick with it – until you visit the place. If you visit it. Maybe you never visit the place, just beacuse of the picture you created in your mind (if…

#93 Like walking in a painting

Golf is for me almost like photography. Been doing it since the 1980:s and is an average golfer/photographer. It doesn´t help to buy new clubs – I will not play any better. The same goes for a new camera… A golf course is often a beautiful place. Some more than others. Yesterday we played one…

#91 A Bike and A Camera

I love taking pictures – and I love riding bikes. Why not do both? As I woke up this morning, the sun was shining and the temperatur was around 20 degrees Celsius. Perfect bike weather. I took my new Fujifilm X100V in a strap, so I could have it easily accesable as I stopped. And…
