#174 Taking my M out

I recently found a good price for a Zeiss 2,8/21mm for my Leica M camera. Yesterday I tried it out in a nearby forest. I haven’t used my M-cameras so much for outdoor or landscape photography before. Often I take my Fujis instead, as I go out for a hike or something like that. That…

#172 Carlskrona

Yesterday was a gray and slightly rainy day in southern Sweden. I turned ”black and white”. My intention was to take some pictures in one of the old churches in the city – but as I got there, the church was closed. In the park I found that all the benches had the citys name…

#169 It’s time for photography

The inspiration comes and goes. This year has so far been a low point in my photography. When I look in my Lightroom Library I see that I have shot 1057 pictures som far. That’s terrible… The simple reason is that the year has been full of other things and there are only so much…

#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…
