#34 Coffee and cameras

Leica Q There are a lot of nice stuff in a good coffee shop. Just look at the tea bags, the coffee machine or the mugs. The whole shop is all about making you get in the right mood – to have coffee or tea. But there is something seriously wrong with me – I…

#33 Ways to inspiration

Vienna, Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2.8 How do you find the inspiration to go out and take photos? Why do you choose to take this or that shot? For me an important factor is inspiration. I find it in many ways. Some ideas just grow in my mind, some pop up as I read a…

#32 Photo Books

If you are interested in photography like me, you probably want to make something of your photos. Today everybody take snapshots [with their phones] like never before – but where do these pictures go? Snapchat and apps like it has created a way to take snapshots that are gone when you sent them to your…

#31 Rain

Stockholm, Leica Q Walked across central Stockholm this morning on my way to todays work meeting. When I was minutes away, a thunder storm cauhgt up with me. I was a little early, so I stopped for a coffe out of the rain. As I drank my coffe, the people that was late continued in…

#30 Morning Photos

Norrköping City – Leica M240, Zeiss Planar 2/50 Sometime it is hard to find time for photography. I think this is a matter of priority – what is important to you? If photography is something that make you feel good – you will probably find the time. I often find me time in the morning,…

#28 I have to take pictures

I always wear a camera – well…almost always. I find my self always looking at things through the finder of a camera – even if the camera is in my bag. Everywhere I look I see pictures. I suppose that I am not alone, suffering from this photography addiction… Today I was out on a…

#25 How to ruin a project

Well. Som much for making a small project for myself. A simple goal; take some pictures with the Fuji 10-24/f4 in Stockholm. Can a project be easier? And did i make it? Nooooo… A good thing would be to actually bring the lens and camera you are to use. Did I do that? Nope! I…

#23 Staying in a castle

Last weekend me and my wife celebrated our wedding anniversary. We try to make this a special day, when it is possible. This time it was on a friday, so we took the day off and got in the car. The destination was Thorskogs Castle a couple of miles north of Gothenburg. The castle is…

#20 Q in the sun

Yesterday me and my Leica Q was out walking in the morning sun. I wanted to try to get the star shaped sun in the frame, using a small aperture. When I look at the picture, I can almost feel the same intensity in the sunlight that I felt as I was shooting. This strange…

#19 Cold stop in Uppsala

Made a two day stop in Uppsala this week. Luckily I checked out the weather forecast before I went – somthing some of my friends did not. The winter was back for a few days and the snow was falling again. Hopefully this was the last snow I will see this spring. It looked like…

#18 From winter to spring

This time of year, Sweden is a very long country. I have just been in Luleå for a week, working. Luleå is one of the most northern cities in Sweden – or even in the world. This picture is from wednesday last week. Then today – back home in Mantorp, outside Linköping – the spring…

#15 Outdoor Colors

There is not much bright colors in the nature these days. I hope the rightful owner will find it again.

#14 Streets

Yesterday we were in Linköping to visit one of our favourite restaurants. Before that we took a walk around the city. The weather was nice and one can almost feel that spring is just around the corner. Soon this street will have a green roof. Can’t wait… The camera that was on my shoulder was…

#11 The morning walk

We have walked it many many times. The morning walk. There is nothing to see, nothing to photograph…or is there…? The light may be different, the clouds may be different and it may be spring or in the middle of the winter. You can expose for the highlights or you can shoot in black and…

#10 Saturday

Breakfast at my favourite café in Linköping this morning. Scones, orange juice, egg and  cappucino. A perfect start of a saturday. Had a 28 mm Zeiss lens on my Leica today and tried some zone focusing pictures. I haven’t used this method that much – I kind of like to take the time and adjust…

#9 City Animals

Sometimes I just feel like taking a photo walk in my home town – but as I walk I can’t find anything to shoot. It’s like I have seen everything and also have taken photos of everything worth shooting. When I feel like that, I try to see new things. Today I happened do see…

#3 Sunday walk

Went for a short walk at Stjärnorp, not far from our home. Lake Roxen is still covered with ice, even though it is not freezing outside. The camera for the walk was my Fujifilm X-T2 with the Fujinon XF 10-24/4 – a great combination. The X-T2 is my go-to camera for landscape and outdoor photography….

I have tried out wordpress before, i tried Squarespace and Portfoliobox. Somehow I always found some things I didn’t like. I think it’s time to…
