#75 Swedish Railway Stations in BNW

I travel around Sweden in my work and I try to use the train as much as possible. As it happens I find railway stations and trains fun to shoot. There is nothing like an old station with the classic rounded roof. Unfortenatly…we don’t have that many of them in Sweden..but anyway… I used my…

#73 Stockholm Photos

We spent the weekend in Stockholm, just relaxing and having a good time. I often visit the beautiful Swedish capital, but I rarely have the time just to walk around with my camera a whole day. The weather was nice and so was the company. The streets are full of tourists from all over the…

#71 At the Polar Circle

If you look at a map of the world, you will notice that there are few cities north of the Polar Circle. Sweden is one of the countries that stretch north of the circle. The Pictures in this post are from Jokkmokk in Sweden (situated almost exactly on the Polar Circle) shot in 2018 around…

#70 Ugly yet beautiful

In 2016 I was in southern Italy on a weekend trip, with my wife and some friends. We lived in the small town of Pizzo – almost at the toe of the Italian “boot”. The small village is both very beautiful and in some parts quite ugly. The narrow paths between the houses are filled…

#68 Colorful December

This year we spent Christmas on Tenerife, instead of the rainy and dark Sweden. Well some parts of Sweden are of course snowy and white, but not where we live. Instead we went to the warm and sunny Tenerife for a week. A colorful contrast to my last post. Leica M240 and Zeiss Biogon 35/2,8…

#64 France and an M9

Back in 2017 we went to Nice, France,  for a weekend. At that time I had an M9 and the two Zeiss lenses I still use today, a Planar 50/2 and a Biogon 35/2,8. It was the first journey abroad with a digital Leica. I still had my X-Pro2 back then, and I was thinking…

#59 Paris – from the X-Pro2

The Metro station As I looked through the more than 300 X-Pro2 pictures that I kept from the trip to Paris, I realized that there were not many that I would say were good pictures. The technical quality was of course good in most of them – the X-Pro2 is a great camera – but…

#58 Paris – from a Leica M6TTL

Champs Elysee Back in 2017 I was  in Paris with my family, for a short vacation.  I had recently bought my first Leica – the M6TTL – and two Zeiss lenses. My main digital camera back then was the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I brought both cameras on the trip to Paris. I shot 3 rolls of…

#56 Vienna and the Leica

Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 A trip to Vienna the months before Christmas is like going to the mother of all Christmas markets. The inner city is full of small stands full of handcrafted items, punch and glühwein. In the evening the whole city is lit up of Christmas decorations, and full of people just…

#51 Why I want to go back, and why not

The Faroe Islands is a wonderful place – I loved it. Would I like to go back? Yes – and no. Let me explain… Fujifilm X-T2 and 18-55 zoom It is always a special feeling, as you visit a place for the first time. All the first impressions. Was it as you had imagined? Exploring…

#50 One Camera and one Lens?

What would a journey to a place like the Faroe Islands be like – from a photographic point of view – if I had brought only one camera with a 35mm lens? For the journey we made I had packed the following cameras and lenses; Fujifilm X-T2, 10-24 zoom, 18-55 zoom and 55-200 zoom, 50/2…

#49 The Faroe Islands Part 5

Boats – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 As you may have read in other posts on this page, I am a fan of certain kind of ships; icebreakers, tow boats and pilot boats. Now – after visiting the Faroes – I have to add fishing boats to that list. In the Faroes there are a…

#48 The Faroe Islands Part 4

In post #47 I wrote about the small villages at the end of the road. Now it is time for the slightly larger villages – or perhaps Towns is the proper word. Torshavn is the biggest town on the islands and also the capital. After you land at the airport on Vágar, it is a…

#47 The Faroe Islands Part 3

Saksun – Fujifilm X-T2 and 10-24 zoom If you find a narrow road on the Faroes, chanses are high you can find a small village at the end of it. Often the road gets smaller and smaller, until you think about if you should have rented a motorcycle instead. That is when you meet a…

#46 The Faroe Islands Part 2

Sheep – Fujifilm X-T2 and 10-24 zoom The landscape of the Faroe Islands is incredible. In the end of August, when we visited the islands, the landscape is green. Really green. Every where you look there is a waterfall – and a sheep. Sheep everywhere you look. Unfortenatly the top of the hills were covered…

#45 The Faroe Islands Part 1

A typical landscape in the Faroes – Fujifilm X-T2 and 55-200 zoom For me, the Faroe Islands have always been a place far away in the Atlantic – not for me to visit. Not until I suddenly realized that it is only a two hour flight from Copenhagen. It was a Danish photographer – Mads…
